Steven Spielberg award to be delayed
The director was set to receive the Cecil B DeMille Award for outstanding contribution to the industry at this month's Golden Globes - but since the ceremony has been cancelled, so has his prize.
He will now be given the career recognition award next year, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
A news conference has been scheduled to replace the Golden Globes, with the winners being announced at a Beverly Hills hotel.
With next month's Oscars hanging in the balance, many may be hoping for an end to the strike before the ceremony.
The strike concerns the Writers Guild of America and focuses on the key issue of residual money generated from content used online.
