Kaley Cuoco is officially returning as host for People’s Choice Awards 2013, and we here at the PCA headquarters could not be more excited! Now, we have always been fond of our many hosts over the past 39 years, but there’s just something about Kaley, star of CBS’ hit comedy The Big Bang Theory, that has us tickled pink. Perhaps a closer analysis is in order.
Great hair? Check.
Adorable smile? Check.
Fearless in 5 inch platform heels? Check. Seriously, try navigating our colossal set at the Nokia Theatre in those suckers and see how well you do.
Up for anything? Check. We put her in a Laura Ingalls-esque get up at one point during last year’s show, so, if that ain’t being game, I don’t know what is.
Grace under pressure? Check. She walked the red carpet and talked with our pre-show hosts literally moments before the awards show kicked off, and she could not have been more poised. She then proceeded to host the two hour live network broadcast with more grace and charm than Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. OK, maybe that’s a little much, but still! Better than what critics have had to say about most awards show hosts of late…
And last but not least, the girl is FUNNY! If you don’t watch her show, you may not be familiar with her great comedic timing and ability to expertly shine in a group dynamic – even up against some of the funniest people in the biz. I learned that first hand while watching her bring to life a hilarious spoof we had pre-taped with the cast of NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Of course, the cast members were brilliant in their own way (I mean, come on, nobody is funnier than Amy Poehler!) but she not only fit in, she actually stood out (in a good way) making many scenes laugh-out-loud funny and proving that she has the comedic chops to hang with the best of them.
I could go on, but I think you get my point. And to top it all off, she is such a pleasure to work with. Behind the scenes, she is cool and collected and gets the job done without letting it all go to her head – as may be the case with many of her Hollywood peers.
We can’t wait to see her do her thing again this year and we encourage you to tune in on January 9th at 9/8c on CBS and see for yourself why we’re so excited to have her back – you will not be disappointed!
