People’s Choice Awards 2013

10 Jan

Last night was the People’s Choice Awards.  I think this was one of the first times that I actually watched it because I always forget about it and my mom happened to change the channel to it when it started so we decided to watch it…

Kaley Cuoco from Big Bang Theory hosted and she is a bit of an odd gal.  I don’t think I have ever seen a full episode of the Big Bang Theory (even though I’ve heard it is a good show) so I really didn’t know what to expect with her. I felt, like most awards show hosts (minus Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood), she tried too hard to be funny and it was just a little lame.  I will say that her opening dress was super cute on her though.

The only bit that she did that made me chuckle was a PSA one about Dog Shaming.  She basically imitated Sarah McLochlan on the saddest TV commercials ever about the abused animals and showed pictures of dogs that had been “shamed” and told people they needed to put an end to it.  You can watch the clip of it here.  Also, if you haven’t seen dog shaming pictures before, you really need to do it now so click on that link.  Some are pretty funny and help you appreciate the stupid things your dogs do compared to what some people are dealt with…

Anyways, the Hunger Games stole the show by winning 6 awards!  It won for Favorite Movie, Action Movie, and Movie Franchise.  Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta), and Liam Hemsworth (Gale) won for Favorite On-Screen Chemistry and Katniss won for Favorite Movie Actress and “Face of Heroism.”  And can I just say how much I loved that she used a Mean Girls reference in her speech by saying, “I wish I could break this and throw pieces out to all of you like in Mean Girls.”

My girl, KP, took home several awards as well! Yay Katy Perry!  She won for Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Pop Artist.  Her music video for “Part of Me” won Favorite Music Video and her fans, the “KatyCats”, won her the Favorite Music Fan Following award!

Olivia Munn announced the winner for Favorite Country Artist and it was incredibly awkward.  First of all she said that Taylor Swift wrote “We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together” about her as a joke before announcing the winner, who actually ended up being Taylor Swift.  Then when TSwift came up to accept the award and give her speech, Olivia pulled a Kanye West move (on a much smaller scale) and kept interrupting Taylor saying that the award should be dedicated to her.  We got the joke, let the girl speak.  Taylor responded with, “This always happens,” in a slightly joking but not joking kind of way…

Speaking of awkward, Adam Sandler won the award for Favorite Comedic Movie Actor and in his acceptance speech he listed out a ridiculously long list of his own favorites that consisted of favorite berry (Halle), apple (Fiona), way to fly (unicorn), tree (the Tree Stooges), and of course he did all of this in his awkward voice that he uses for everything.  I don’t know if it was just me or what but I didn’t find it funny.  Maybe you thought differently?  Watch it here and decide.  I just thought it went on and on (almost 3 minutes long) and half of the things weren’t real and I didn’t understand the humor.  I dunno, whatever.

This year they added a new category: Favorite Humanitarian.  The lovely Sandra Bullock won and I was not even remotely surprised.  This woman does a lot as far as humanitarian work goes and I just love her.  Sandy is gorgeous and seems to be a really great person!  In her speech she said, “I am not at all being modest when I say I am not doing anything compared to what they do on a daily basis.”  Sandra also thanked the fans for supporting her because they are the reason she is able to write the checks to help these people.  What a class act!
