The Grammys’ producers have asked the Writer’s Guild of America to grant an interim agreement–similar to the one struck between the Guild and David Letterman’s production company Worldwide Pants–that would allow its members, as well as members of the Screen Actors Guild like Beyonce, to work on and attend the show. A decision will come Monday at the earliest, although producers have said that the show will go on regardless. According to Variety, Grammy bigwigs tried to pull at the WGA’s heartstrings by pointing out that the telecast “generates funds to be used for school programs, to assist musicians in times of need and lobbying efforts in Washington.” “Lobbying efforts,” eh? Like these? You may want to just stick with talking about the schools there, guys.
