The 65th Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best in film and television of 2007, were scheduled to be presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on January 13 2008. However, due to the Writers Guild of America strike, the traditional awards ceremony did not take place; [cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7176095.stm |title=Golden Globes ceremony scrapped |accessdate=2008-01-08 |date=2008-01-08 |work=BBC News] instead, the winners were announced at a news conference at 6:00 pm PST on that day (02:00 January 14 UTC).cite web|author=Cieply, Michael and Carr, David |url=http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/08/arts/television/08cnd-globes.html |title=No Golden Globes Show, Just a News Conference |accessdate=2008-01-08 |date=2008-01-08 |publisher=The New York Times |quote=the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday that the festive awards dinner will be replaced by a news conference at 9 p.m. Eastern time next Sunday night to announce the actual winners]

The Association attempted to reach an interim agreement with the Writers Guild to allow its members to write for the ceremonies. When a compromise fell through, striking writers threatened to picket the event; almost all of the celebrities planning to attend, including members of the Screen Actors Guild who pledged their support for the strike, promised to boycott the awards rather than cross the picket lines.

To compensate for lost programming time, NBC broadcast a special two-hour edition of "Dateline", including film clips, interviews with the nominees, plus commentary from comedian Kathy Griffin and Tiki Barber, Jerome Bettis, and Cris Collinsworth from "Football Night in America", starting at 7:00pm EST; a one-hour Hollywood Foreign Press Association news conference announcing the winners at The Beverly Hilton Hotel starting at 9:00pm EST; and a one-hour edition of "Access Hollywood" visiting sites of the various previously-scheduled parties, starting at 10:00pm EST.
