NBC Finalizes Globes Plans
Matt Lauer to host 'Dateline' nominees special

NBC has nailed down its plans for the stripped-down Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.

"Today" co-anchor Matt Lauer will host a two-hour special called "Going for Gold" at 7 p.m. ET Sunday. The show, which falls under the "Dateline" banner, will feature interviews with several nominees, including James McAvoy ("Atonement"), Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer"), Ellen Page ("Juno") and Amy Adams ("Enchanted"), as well as Globes predictions from NBC's "Football Night in America" crew.

Comedian Kathy Griffin will also provide commentary on the awards, whose usual night-long party fell victim to the writers' strike. With actors refusing to cross a promised Writers Guild picket, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hands out the Globes, and NBC decided to scrap the ceremony in favor of a "news conference" at 9 p.m. ET (print reporters will be allowed to attend, but NBC will be the only one broadcasting it).

Canceling the Golden Globes ceremony will likely cost NBC about $10 million to $15 million in lost ad revenue, according to several trade publications.

The "Dateline" special was initially scheduled to air Saturday night. NBC has also cancelled tentative plans to cover the post-announcement parties, as most of the parties themselves have been shut down. An "American Gladiators" encore will air at 10 p.m.
