Bare Bones Golden Globes a Ratings Loser

Originally posted 01/14/2008 01:05PM

What's a Golden Globes show without stars? Not much, if dismal ratings are any indication.

The Writers Guild strike took all the fun out of the usually festive awards show on Sunday night, and viewers voted with their remotes, tuning into the competition instead of the stripped-down, celebrity-free announcement broadcast, which came in fourth for the hour, the Associated Press reports.

There may be no Golden Globes show, but that didn't stop the L.A. Film Critics from handing out awards Saturday – and drawing stars.

The best picture honor went to There Will Be Blood, best actor to the film's star Daniel Day-Lewis, best actress to French actress (and La Vie en Rose star) Marion Cotillard and supporting actress to Gone Baby Gone's Amy Ryan.

The awards marked a rare appearance by the enigmatic Day-Lewis, who says he felt out of place amid the Hollywood glamour.

"It's a little shocking," Day-Lewis, 50, told PEOPLE. "It's a very different environment than the one to which I live in everyday."

Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon Named Top Stars at People's Choice

Although the writers' strike continues to slow down the award season, on Tuesday night the people were heard – and not just in New Hampshire.

Yes, the 34th annual People's Choice Awards carried on. Rather than cancel the show, producers retooled it as an understated, "newsmagazine"-style broadcast, hosted by Queen Latifah on CBS. The actress acknowledged the changes immediately, telling viewers, "I know this show's a little different than last time. But we have what's important – you, the people, and all your favorites all night long."

Brad & Angelina, Katie Holmes Step Out for Critics' Choice Awards

As the Golden Globes became the first awards-show casualty in the Hollywood writers strike, the Critics' Choice Awards fared better Monday – and with no picket lines in sight, that meant an all-star showing, from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to George Clooney and Katie Holmes.

The 13th annual awards, handed out by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, are not covered by Writers Guild contracts, so unlike the Globes (and other upcoming awards shows), the Critics' Choice Awards were not impacted by the writers' strike.

So the A-listers showed up to party and celebrate the night's winners. No Country for Old Men was named best picture, with its oddly coiffed bad guy, Javier Bardem, winning best supporting actor.
