Briefing: Will Oscar go the same way as the Golden Globes?

With the nominations due to be announced on Tuesday, industry insiders are desperately trying to find a resolution to the Hollywood writers' strike

Miles Kington: The Oscars finally come of age with a violent blockbuster

The Golden Globes ceremony this year was my kind of ceremony. No party. No dinner. No speeches. Nothing. Just a list of winners and everyone going home without a goody bag, leaving only a big question hanging in the air: "Will the Oscars be just like this as well?"

THE GLOBES' foreshadowing of the Oscars is an unlikely tie-in, given the massive gulf between the Oscar and Globe electorates. The Academy Awards are based on the votes of 5,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences - actors, directors, producers and other veterans of the film industry. By contrast, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association polls 82 freelancers and other entertainment journalists. Unlike the over- the-top, but too-often stiff Academy Awards, the Golden Globes have been a hit with viewers because of their unpredictable nature.

Letter: Tarnished Globes

Sir: The Independent is to be congratulated on Andrew Gumbel's report on the Golden Globes (26 January). The truth behind the Golden Globes is potentially as big a scandal as the current Olympic inquest, and when it is finally embraced by the media there are going to be a lot of red faces among those, including the US media, studios and agents, who have chosen to misrepresent to the public exactly what the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the Golden Globes are all about.
