The union representing striking Hollywood writers won't allow its members to write for the Oscars and the golden globes.

The producers of the awards shows had asked the writers guild of America to waive a strike rule to allow writers to write for them.

The guild has rejected the requests.

They say that granting a waiver would not advance the union's battle with studios, to negotiate a new contract.

It also denied a request to use old movie clips during the academy awards show on February 24th.

The writers strike is in its seventh week.
