Katherine Heigl is in good company. Damages' Glenn Close and Mad man Jon Hamm are among the latest Golden Globe nominees to come forth and say they will not cross the WGA picket line to attend the big show. "There's no way I would cross a picket line," Variety quotes Hamm as saying. "Not only in respect to [executive producer] Matt [Weiner], but I'm in 100 percent agreement with him in this fight. It would be a drag not to go, but you have to take a stand."

But will the Jan. 13 Globes ceremony actually be targeted by picketers? Hairspray helmer Adam Shankman tells Variety, "I think it would be a smack in the face if there was striking at the ceremony because it would be undermining the achievements of their own guild. I think it's a horribly counterintuitive idea to strike something that celebrates their own membership."

What's your take? Would the WGA be right to picket upcoming red-carpet events? Or should they, as has been discussed, grant waivers "allowing" stars and scribes to attend without guilt?
