The gays rescue the tragic “People’s Choice Awards”


I judge awards shows by how many times I push the mute button on the remote, and last night’s People’s Choice Awards — well let’s just say I firmly believe I now have Carpal Tunnel.

The PCA’s are unique in that the winners are notified beforehand, which is why you’ll never see shots of the nominees in their seats when their names are announced. Because why would you attend if you knew you were going to lose?

This doesn’t stop some winners from feigning surprise that they won, but the word must have gotten out, because I didn’t see any of that phoniness this year (unfortunately).

You can go here for a complete list of the winners, but let’s take a look at some of the highlights … and lowlights.

The gays ruled!

Jane Lynch won Favorite TV Comedy Actress, meaning both top TV comedy awards were gay hogged. Glee was announced as Favorite TV Comedy at the same time, and as Jane gave her speech (thanking her partner Lara), she seemed oblivious to the fact that Corey Montieth and Chris Colfer were standing right behind her — until the last five seconds.

In the press room, Jane talks about playing Mrs. Brady, sitting in her closet and her wish for Javier Bardem and Tyne Daly to guest star on Glee.

Neil Patrick Harris won for Favorite TV Comedy Actor. He kissed David on the cheek, then gave a speech that will be hard to top this award season.

Backstage Neil was inundated with questions about twins Harper and Gideon. It’s obvious that fatherhood suits him well.
