50th Grammys Reached a Deal With WGA, to Go On Traditionally


The 50th Annual Grammy Awards have been granted an interim agreement, allowing the event to go on in a traditional way.

The struggle of Recording Academy and several artists like Beyonce Knowles and Foo Fighters to keep the 50th Grammy Awards gala going on have come to a fruitful result. The Writers Guild of America have granted an interim agreement to the organizers of the event to proceed with the ceremony to be held February 10 at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

Due to the writers strike, several shows have been canceled including the Golden Globes Awards that was held earlier this month. WGA who represents the striking writers, however, have said last week that they would not picket against Grammys and announced further in a statement on Monday, January 28 that "The Board of Directors of the Writers Guild of America, West has agreed to grant an interim agreement for this year's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles."

The statement added, "Professional musicians face many of the same issues that we do concerning fair compensation for the use of their work in new media."

In response, the president of Recording Academy, Neil Portnow released a statement saying, "Having our talented writers on the team further ensures the highest level of creativity and innovation."
