I work in the media and I think the experts here are getting their shorts in a twist over nothing. Entertainment has been a part of News since day one. Why else do newspapers include entertainment sections? Or Sports sections? News is about stuff that happens. And the coverage of an awards ceremony by a news organization is meaningless. And if you want to say everything needs a hard news hook, maybe NBC was hoping a group of rogue writers would firebomb the place or something. Seriously, the Golden Globe press conference was legitimate news as it was part of an ongoing story: the collapse of a multi-billion-dollar American industry due to labor action. There's your news hook.
