Who’s got brown hair, opposable thumbs and is super excited for the People’s Choice Awards tomorrow? THIS GIRL!
And for the first time in a long time…I know I’m not alone. You see, as an important member of the PCA team, I spend an inordinate amount of time on the @PeoplesChoice Twitter and Facebook accounts. Maybe I’ve seen you there? Because I see you tweeting. And posting. And tweeting. And commenting. And tweeting and tweeting and tweeting. Tweets come flying in, faster than a speeding Lindsay Lohan — so I know I’m not alone. You’re just as excited as I am!
Most of the tweets I see are votes. Traditionally, we’ve kept our Favorite New TV Comedy and Drama categories open through show night, but this year we really turned things upside down. We’ve not only kept our New TV categories open, but we also decided to let fans vote for all three Fan Following categories through show night too! I’m going to take a look at our open categories…join me, won’t you?
Favorite New TV Comedy: This is one of my favorite categories this year. I love all of the nominated shows (Go On, Guys With Kids, The Mindy Project, The New Normal and The Neighors) and I watch them all somewhat regularly. They are clever and funny and totally enjoyable to watch. I can’t choose a favorite! Please help me choose a favorite!
Favorite New TV Drama: This is a tough, tough category. There are so many attractive people starring in these shows, it literally makes me weep. Have you seen Stephen Amell in Arrow? How about Kristin Kreuk in Beauty and the Beast? Please tell me you’ve seen the sexiness oozing out of Nashville and you swoon each time Lucy Liu is on screen in Elementary? Revolution? Don’t even get me started. How will the people choose?
Favorite Movie Fan Following: I shudder to think what will happen when 4 of these fandoms don’t win. #neverforget
Favorite Music Fan Following: Not since the presidential election of 2000 has a race been so intense. So close. So live or die. We’ve got the Beliebers in one corner, the Directioners in another, the KatyCats in another, the Lovatics in another and the Selenators in yet another (apparently it’s a star-shaped ring?) All of these fandoms are famously loyal, and they’ve been voting up a storm. I’m so excited to see how this race turns out, I can barely stand it. I’m shaking just thinking about. Sseeee? Ii caaann baaarreeellly ttyypppee!
Favorite TV Fan Following: Gleeks! Little Liars! Oncers! SPNfamily! TVDfamily! Fandoms so nice, they’ll vote twice millions of times. A race to the finish for sure.
Oh man. Writing this post just made me so excited. Are you with me people? We’ve waited all year for tomorrow! When our favorites will be revealed! Can you stand it? You can’t stand it.
Either way, it’ll be a night for the books. Hope to see you there!
