5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Cheri Larson, Set nurse with Studio First Aid:
"(We're) suffering, we're losing health insurance, we're losing homes. We are not having food for the table because of the strikers. The writers and the producers, who are not at the bargaining table, who took thanksgiving off, who have taken Christmas off and New Years off to not negotiate and in the meantime all of the collateral people, the under the wire crew members, are suffering. And their families. And collateral workers, the dry cleaners, restaurants and on and on it goes."

7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Karen Kovacic, Set first aid worker with International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees:
"And all of us have been put out of work and both sides won't negotiate. Their talks have stopped so weeks and weeks we've been waiting for them to resolve this and they haven't yet."

"250 thousand people in southern California are out of work. They're losing their health benefits, obviously their pay checks, a major payroll company went bankrupt last Tuesday. We're not getting paid. They've seized all the funds."

Television and film-industry workers protested outside the Beverley Hilton hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, where the Golden Globes was taking place, calling for a swift end to the dispute that has left one of Hollywood's brightest and giddiest nights in shambles.
The Golden Globes Awards ceremony was cancelled for an hour-long televised announcement featuring television news personalities disclosing the winners in-between clips of nominated movies and shows, lacking the glitz and glamour the event is traditionally known for.
A few hours before the show, a dozen non-writer entertainment industry workers on strike stood outside the Beverly Hilton hotel, holding signs asking for the studios and the writers to resume negotiations.
The picket was greeted by supportive honks from cars on Santa Monica Boulevard.
"All of us have been put out of work and both sides won't negotiate. Their talks have stopped so weeks and weeks we've been waiting for them to resolve this and they haven't yet," said Karen Kovacic, a first aid worker with International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.
The pickets were outnumbered by international television crews, but their protest was greeted by supportive honks from cars speeding by on Santa Monica Boulevard.
Another set nurse said: "We're not getting paid. They've seized all the funds."
On strike since 5 November, the Writers Guild of America refused to let union members work on the star-studded banquet-style show, prompting actors to boycott the ceremony rather than cross picket lines.
Despite the gowns and formal wear, the Globes are known as the freewheeling cousin of the Academy Awards, a place where stars can have a few drinks and cut loose as they celebrate the year's achievements in film and television.
The news conference format was a far cry from a ceremony whose star wattage would have been powered by the likes of Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Denzel Washington, Cate Blanchett, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, who all had acting nominations.
The fate of Hollywood's biggest night, the February 24 Oscars, remains uncertain.
Guild leader Patric Verrone has said writers would not be allowed to work on that show, either, which could force stars to make an even tougher choice on whether to stay away or cross the picket line.
Oscar organisers insist their show will come off as planned, with or without the writers.
As a result of their strike, films may not get quite the same box-office bounce they typically receive after winning high-profile prizes, which can add tens of millions of dollars to their haul during the long awards season.
Yet actors and writers say tough action is needed to make sure creative people get their fair financial share for the long haul.
