The welcome mat is out for George Clooney, Keira Knightley and Julia Roberts – as well as the other Golden Globe nominees.
NBC says that the Jan. 13 ceremony will proceed as planned, despite the threat of picketing from the striking Writers Guild of America and stars boycotting the event as a show of support, reports USA Today.

The ongoing writers' strike could cause some major problems for the Golden Globes telecast: The Writers Guild denied a request late Monday to allow its writers to work on the Jan. 13 broadcast.
The guild voted against giving a waiver to the Globes for writers to work on the show, USA Today reports.

Attention Golden Globe nominees: If the writers' strike isn't resolved by showtime, 30 Rock Globe nominee Alec Baldwin is offering to have the event at his Manhattan apartment.
"I have cleared all of this with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The HFPA makes only one simple request and that is that you pre-order your meal selection NO LATER than Friday, January 4th, 2008," he writes on The Huffington Post.

Julia Roberts says her Golden Globe nomination was a "thrilling" moment in her normally blissful, domestic life.
"Usually the triumph of my day is everybody making it to the potty," she cracks in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show scheduled to air Friday. "So yes, I think it's thrilling."
Asked if Roberts, who received a best supporting actress nod for Charlie Wilson's War, feels "ho-hum" about yet another nomination to add to her roster of three past Globe wins and an Oscar, she says, "I didn't realize I had done that much. That's great. No, it's exciting."

"It's just so exciting that we've got nominated in so many categories," the British actress, 22, tells the Associated Press. "There's such a big group of us that can get to go together. It will be a real celebration for the film. It will be a wonderful night."
