LOS ANGELES - The Golden Globes Awards announcement will be open to all electronic media Sunday, a reversal of NBC's intent to cover the strike-affected event exclusively for television.
"Under the new arrangement, there will be no restrictions placed on media outlets covering the press conference," the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said in a brief statement.
The announcement came after behind-the-scenes wrangling between the association and NBC over the format of the unusual broadcast. It was scaled down from the traditionally glitzy ceremony after actors refused to cross the threatened picket lines of striking Hollywood writers.
NBC initially said the Golden Globes would be an exclusive program for the network.
