Chosen people

 
 

The 33rd Annual People’s Choice awards aired Tuesday night. For me, the highlight was Ellen DeGeneres smooching Portia de Rossi when her name was announced. Ellen won the awards for Favorite Talk Show Host and Favorite Funny Female Star. I must admit, it’s pretty cool that “America” can see a tie-wearing lesbian as a “favorite” of any kind.

Queen Latifah wasn’t the best host ever, but she looked good. Of course.

And then there was Cameron Diaz‘s acceptance speech (for Favorite Leading Lady). Clearly she also should have won for Most Unbelievably Trite Speech:

I love making movies! I love it I love it I love it I love it. It’s the best job in the entire world. I love to bring smiles to all of your faces; it brings so much happiness to me.

I think Ellen had the same reaction I did:

Finally, some of the categories are just dumb. I mean, Favorite Funny Female Star? What’s next, Favorite Moderately Amusing Child Actor Under 10 Whose Name Is So Weird It’s Going to Haunt Him or Her for the Rest of His or Her Life?
