The People's Choice Awards: Oh, the Pain....

Maybe the Globes are onto something by sucking it up and going with a simple hour-long press conference? Similarly struck by the strike, Tuesday night's extremely strange and borderline unwatchable People's Choice Awards — in which host Queen Latifah had the unenviable task of reading the winner from what looked like a Franklin Planner, then throwing it to a pre-taped acceptance speech — gave props to a trio of Grey's Anatomy stars (Patrick Dempsey, Katherine Heigl and Chandra Wilson), House (named favorite TV drama) and Two and a Half Men (fave comedy). Other winners on the TV front included talk host Ellen DeGeneres, Dancing with the Stars (reality show), Deal or No Deal (game show), Stargate Atlantis (sci-fi fare) and The Simpsons (non-human programming).
