(Newser) – Following the sudden seizure death of his 16-year-old son, John Travolta has canceled his appearance at tonight's Golden Globe awards. Travolta had planned to attend to support his film Bolt, which is in the running for Best Animated Feature  and Best Original Song for a duet the actor did with co-star Miley Cyrus. Travolta and wife Kelly Preston held a memorial for their son, Jett, Thursday in Florida.
