People's Choice Awards

The winners of the 35th Annual People's Choice awards have been announced! Join us in congratulating winners like Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, Christina Applegate, and more. If you missed the show, no worries--we've got plenty of video interviews and cool photos to keep the excitement going long after the ceremony!

Queen Latifah once again hosted this year's event, which features categories from the worlds of film, music, and our favorite, television. Sure it isn't the Oscars, Emmys, or *gasp* even the Golden Globes (example: best new comedy nominee...Kath & Kim?), but the PCAs are a bit of fun and represent a different kind of awards show...an awards show that loves network television, doesn't think Lost is a good drama or The Office is a good comedy, and has a favorite game show category.

The highlights in the television crowd included House, which came up big with the best drama award and best male actor award for Hugh Laurie. On the comedy side, Two and a Half Men took the show prize, and Christina Applegate won the best actress prize for her role in Samantha Who?. CBS won both new show awards for Gary Unmarried and The Mentalist.

In other media, The Dark Knight won a ton of film awards, and Chris Brown and Carrie Underwood topped the music awards.

    wow...those are some really ummm.....awful nominee picks, If those were the choices that people's choice picked to have us choose from they clearly have no idea what we want.
