People’s Choice Awards: Who The People Chose


The People’s Choice Awards were this evening, and I gotta say, the People made some surprising choices. How is it that the People pick Twilight, Inglorious Basterds, The Big Bang Theory and Katherine Heigel in the same night? The People seem very inconsistent (but then again, the People know more than me because I, confused, said “Miley Cyrus was in a movie?” (She won Favorite Breakout Movie Actress – and I guess the Hannah Montana Movie counts, though that hardly counts as breaking out.)

The People also love Ellen DeGeneres, voted Johnny Depp their favorite actor of the decade, were polite when host Queen Latifah said “M.O.G.” instead of “O.M.G,” cheered just as loudly for Charlie Sheen, chose The Proposal over The Hangover (the People are clearly idiots), follow Ashton Kutcher on Twitter (M.O.G!), want you to be excited about Robin Hood even if it doesn’t feature men in tights, think you can handle Cloris Leachman dressed up like a dominatrix, and love Glee. The People also really, really, really, really love Twilight. The People maybe don’t realize just what kind of sore thumb Inglorious Basterds sticks out of there like, but whatever.

The People also like people named Taylor (Swift and Lautner) and apparently love a chance for Mariah Carey to give another speech. Even if she said nothing, though, that dress spoke volumes. Wow. Watch below:

Also:The People chose Steve Carell as favorite TV comedy actor, and he engaged with an amusing bit with his audience, cueing them to yell out “THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!” after he made an innuendo. Cute. I wonder what Alec Baldwin had planned. Or — sigh — Neil Patrick Harris (Queen Latifah could have used his help in the opening, yikes).
