With all the talk of the cancellation of the Golden Globe ceremony, nobody stopped top think about the true victim -- pre-ordained honoree Steven Spielberg.
Worry not, though, about the occasionally decorated director-producer. According to the industry trade papers, Spielberg will still receive his Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, just not this year.
It's expected that Spielberg's body of work will still warrant the award at the 2009 Golden Globe ceremony (if "Indiana Jones 4" isn't a total disaster), which assumes that we'll be back to holding strike-free award ceremonies by 2009.
Spielberg already has three Oscars, six Golden Globes, three DGA trophies and a slew of Emmys, so he'll be alright.
The trades offer no answer as to whether or not Rumer Willis will get a second shot at being Miss Golden Globe in 2009.
On Monday (Jan. 7), amidst reports that the Globes would be both picketed and star-free, the Hollywood Foreign Press announced that in lieu of the show's normal pomp and circumstance, this year's event would merely be a Sunday night press conference.
