Eye on celeb celebrations as TV mags think Globally


Faced with a red-carpet vacuum and no backstage footage, the syndicated entertainment magazines are still hoping to feature lots of winner reaction during their post-Golden Globes coverage Monday.

The shows are in the process of completing their plans, but both "Inside Edition" and "Extra" are lining up interviews with the nominees in anticipation of getting winners' reactions.

Among the plans "Inside Edition" are still working out is one under which camera crews and interviewers go where the nominees are watching the Globes news conference, thereby getting an in-the-moment reaction. It also is aiming to cover any celebratory parties that might occur Sunday night.

"Extra" also is planning to cover winners' celebrations as well as anything that happens outside the Beverly Hilton related to the strike, co-executive producer Jeremy Spiegel said.

"Obviously, the Globes have been drastically scaled back, and our coverage reflects that," Spiegel said. "It's still a night to recognize great performances, films and TV shows, and without tipping our hand, we've lined up a number of big stars. We'll have interviews with the winners and Hollywood's reaction to what happens Sunday night. It's a news event now, and we'll cover it appropriately."

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for "Access Hollywood" said that show also is formulating its Globes coverage but didn't give specific plans.

Producers for "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider" had no comment Thursday.
