People’s Choice Awards to be taped


Producers for the People’s Choice Awards on CBS announced that they would change the format of the 1/8 airing to a taped show to avoid disruption by picket lines. The decision came after the WGA recently declined to give waivers for striking Hollywood writers to work on the Golden Globes or Academy Awards shows. The People’s Choice Awards will be produced in a magazine-style format hosted by Queen Latifah with taped segments and acceptance speeches that will be pre-recorded.
