The Writers Guild of America has been on strike against producers since Nov. 5 and has vowed to picket the Golden Globes gala if it is produced by Dick Clark Productions, a struck company, and broadcast on NBC, a struck network.

The Golden Globe Awards are scheduled to be presented Jan. 13.

In a statement posted Friday on the United Hollywood Web site, SAG President Alan Rosenberg said "there appears to be unanimous agreement" among Golden Globe actor nominees and their representatives that the actors will not cross picket lines, either to accept or present Golden Globe Awards.

Rosenberg also said SAG is urging its members to appear on "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," which have signed agreements with the WGA.

"However, actors who are asked to appear on the struck network talk shows will have to cross WGA picket lines," he said, "creating the same situation that has led to the consensus among actors to skip the Golden Globes."
