We the People

I was working on some stuff last night and flipped the channels to see what was up and came across the People's Choice Awards. I've never watched it before. Is it always like this?

I guess, what I'm saying is, I think I understand Hollywood executives now. They must watch this awards show.

All the celebrities are like "OMG I'm with the people! Look at the PEOPLE! There's some seat fillers - they're PEOPLE too! Here's some PEOPLE who are sitting outside in the cold next to me in my spaghetti strap dress and they can't get in! They're PEOPLE TOO! HAHA look at me improv because this is a craaaaaaaazy show because it's for the PEOPLE! Look at those stupid PEOPLE. They think 27 Dresses was the best comedy of the year! Because they're PEOPLE!"

It was like a night when celebrities pretend they like people who aren't celebrities. Because they're PEOPLE.

Seriously though, at one point all the seat fillers didn't get the hell out of the way in time for them to cut back from commercial and Queen Latifah, who was the host, told them all to get out of the way. Then she looked at the camera and said something to the extent of "I mean, take all the time you need because you're my PEOPLE! People can sit wherever they want because this is their show!"

It's about the PEOPLE, people. The little people. Don't you feel special?


  1. I've always hated that trite show since my teens. It's such an insult, the show demeans non-famous, non-rich people. Like we're all frothing at the mouths for a bunch of overpaid, crappy celebrities who can't act worth a shit.

    and I hate Queen Latifah, too. She used to be cool, now she's just lame.

  2. I tried to watch and only managed about 40 minutes before I couldn't take it anymore. Glad I'm not the only one who found it completely disgusting. (Except for Hugh Laurie's speech. His was good. Everything else was dreck.)


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
