Glee, House Win Big At People's Choice Awards
Glee won Favorite TV Comedy, while scene stealer Jane Lynch was named Favorite TV Comedy Actress. Similarly, House won Favorite TV Drama while leading lady Lisa Edelstein took home the Favorite TV Drama Actress crystal trophy thingamabob.
Other winners in major TV categories included How I Met Your Mother‘s Neil Patrick Harris (Favorite TV Comedy Actor), Conan O’Brien (Favorite Talk Show Host) and Keeping Up With The Kardashians (Favorite Guilty Pleasure). Hawaii Five-0 and $#*! My Dad Says won Favorite New Drama and Comedy, respectively.
Presenters from the smaller screen included Private Practice‘s pretty pairing of Kate Walsh and Taye Diggs, Big Bang bombshell Kaley Cuoco, Chuck‘s Zachary Levi, Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen and Desperate Housewife Vanessa Williams.
The broadcast, carried by CBS, kicked off with a surprise presenter — Jennifer Aniston. Queen Latifah hosted the oftentimes plodding proceedings, left on multiple occasions to battle technical glitches or freely banter with members of the audience. I don’t usually think much about the Twilight kiddies, but ouch — they were targeted with some agonizing material.
Performers on the telecast included Favorite Breakout Artist Selena Gomez (whose neutered mic made the lyrics “Can you hear me calling?” rather ironic) and The People’s Voice, Kid Rock.
A complete list of all winners, presented on-air and not, was to be posted at PeoplesChoice.com.
