The striking Hollywood writers guild said it likely will not allow its members to work on next month's Grammy Awards telecast.

Gregg Mitchell, a spokesman for the Writers Guild of America, said Grammy organizers have not asked for a waiver allowing writers to work on the show -- and a waiver is unlikely to be granted if requested.

Mitchell also said the guild has not made a decision on whether it will picket the February 10 ceremony, set to air live on CBS.

The Recording Academy did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The two-month writers strike had a dramatic effect on this week's Golden Globe Awards, shrinking the normally glitzy event to a brief news conference, without celebrities.
