People’s Choice Award 2011 nominees announced
Award shows aren’t all the same. Some are voted on by the artists themselves. Some are selected by critics.
The People’s Choice Awards are like a conversation you have with a bunch of your friends at 2:00 in the morning.
There are categories you might expect…Favorite Movie, Favorite TV Comedy, that sort of thing. But then somebody says, “Who is your favorite movie star under 25?” or “Favorite TV Guilty Pleasure?”
You know, it’s like when baseball fans argue about the best left-handed pitcher under six feet tall who played football in high school. 😉

I do want to mention a few things about this year.
Alice in Wonderland is a favorite drama movie?
The Vampire Diaries is a favorite drama TV series…but True Blood isn’t? Yet, they are both in the sci-fi/fantasy category
Every Favorite Movie nominee is geeky (Alice in Wonderland, Inception, Iron Man 2, Eclipse, Toy Story 3)
Burn Notice and White Collar are TV obsessions?
Betty White is a favorite TV Guest Star…I get that. But Britney Spears for Glee? She didn’t exactly have a lot to do during that episode
The Scavos (Desperate Housewives) are a favorite TV family?
Angelina Jolie is a favorite action star…but so is Bradley Cooper?
The awards will be televised on January 5, 2011, and hosted by Queen Latifah.
