First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who voted and who tuned in for making last night’s 2011 People’s Choice Awards the massive success it turned out to be.
What did you think? Did you enjoy the show? We want your opinion. In fact, we love your feedback because, well, you’re the ones who put the stars up there and determine who wins what in the first place. For my part, I’ll just say that we had a blast and that the performers who showed up were just as personable as they could be.
I am a new fan of Selena Gomez, even though I only know the one song. I was on the Blue Carpet (so so much better than red. How about we always do that? Everyone looked cool – literally and figuratively – which is a plus. Red carpets get really hot and the stars overheat and then everyone squawks about the temperature. Zero problems with temp this year).
I was backstage during the show, taking those grainy pix you see on our blog. (Although, to be fair, what I originally purchased was a cell phone. At the time it never dawned on me that I’d be snapping starlets on the fly, only to jettison them into the ether onto a waiting website).
The fact that Johnny Depp showed up for the second year in a row was astonishing, and it says something pretty powerful about the People’s Choice pheenom in the first place.
We’ll have lots more to discuss once the dust settles. Like who wore what – and why. For now, it was pretty grand and I think Queen Latifah did an awesome job keeping everything – and everyone – moving. Plus, I asked around and I’m reasonably certain that both a) The Stars and b) The People Who Chose Them were pleased with the result.
Let us know what you thought and we’ll discuss the whole thing in depth – with photos – in the coming days. More later. Cheers.
