The Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Prods are still battling legally for control over the Golden Globes and still awaiting trial. But the two sides have buried the hatchet temporarily to collaborate on the upcoming 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. The three parties made the announcement today. Despite the fact that HFPA calls DCP’s new Golden Globes deal with NBC that starts in 2012 invalid as it violates their agreement, NBC will carry the awards Jan. 15 as planned. Dick Clark Prods. will produce the awards telecast and a live pre-show with the HFPA. “The parties are pleased to have reached an agreement relating to the 2012 Golden Globe Awards, while preserving their respective positions,” DCP and HFPA said in a joint statement. HFPA’s suit against DCP was set to go to trial Sept. 6, but was postponed for a month because of an illness of Judge Valerie Baker Fairbank who was to hear the case.
