Hollywood publicists are telling me that their clients will attend the 13th annual Critics Choice Awards being broadcast live Monday night on VH1. In fact, publicist Stan Rosenfield confirmed today that Best Actor nominee George Clooney will attend. “It’s a non-union gig — non-WGA, always has been,” a SAG leader informed me. Neither VH1 nor the production company behind the awards show are WGA signatories, but VH1 parent companies Paramount and Viacom are, plus members of the struck AMPTP. There won’t be a WGA picket line outside the event, however. The Critics’ Choice Awards are given out annually by the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
