There was a brief dust-up earlier today when the NYT reported that a legal skirmish between the HFPA and Dick Clark Productions might keep 2012’s Golden Globes ceremony off the air, saying “In a little-noticed court filing on Tuesday, lawyers for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which presents the Globes, said there might not be time to find a new producer, a network and advertisers for next January’s show if the association’s legal dispute with its longtime producer, Dick Clark Productions, continued at the current pace.”

That doesn’t seem to be the case however, as Deadline brings us word – directly from the HFPA – that “Dick Clark can suck a dick and the Globes are a Go.”  They didn’t actually say that.  Here’s what they DID say:

“Regardless of the legal proceedings with Red Zone and Dick Clark Productions, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will present the Sixty-Ninth Annual Golden Globe Awards Show as scheduled in January 2012. The show will go on, with or without dcp.”

The whole thing was brought on by a lawsuit filed by the HFPA that said, in essence, that DCP had renewed the show’s license with NBC through 2018 without consulting the HFPA, among other things.  With the trial set to start on December of this year, it did look a little shaky for next year’s broadcast, but there you have it.

In related gilded-awards news, with the Oscar noms getting released tomorrow, the Razzie noms hit today.  I personally think the Razzies are kinda ridiculous and boring and obvious, but people seem to dig ‘em.  So, if you’re one of those people, then this is for you:
