The wait? Almost over. The breathless anticipation? About to be an afterthought. The jewels? Polished. The gowns, the tuxedoes and attendant finery? Just leaving the dry cleaners. The Red Carpet? Vacuumed and pristine. The limos? Booked. The paparazzi? Already impatient. It’s time. Or it’s about to be.
The People’s Choice Awards. Tomorrow night at 9pm on CBS.
And how about the guest list? Let’s see. We have Malin Akerman, Julie Bowen, Michael Chiklis, Miranda Cosgrove, Kaley Cuoco, Taye Diggs, Lisa Edelstein, Zac Efron, Elton John, Neil Patrick Harris, the Kardashians, Minka Kelly, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Zachary Levi, Jane Lynch, AnnaLynne McCord, Leighton Meester, Stephen Moyer, Conan O’Brien, Jerry O’Connell, Jim Parsons, Robert Pattinson, Pauley Perrette, Katy Perry, Natalie Portman, Emma Roberts, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Swift and Kate Walsh. How’s that for a roster of A-List Hollywood talent and then some. Plus, they’ll all be decked out to the nines, and if you want to see for yourself who’s wearing what before Queen Latifah gets the ball rolling, simply tune into our exclusive live Red Carpet webcast 7:30-9:00 PM live ET/4:30-6:00 live PT. Plus, you get musical numbers from Kid Rock and Selena Gomez and The Scene. As far as star-studded evenings go, this is the only game in town.
I’ll be backstage, providing a little play-by-play from behind the scenes. So you’ll know who’s maybe having a little trouble with that bow tie, or who’s funny on (and off) camera. Um, did you vote yet? A whole lot of your friends did, and there’s still time – our Favorite New TV Comedy and Favorite New TV Drama polls are still open and remember, there’s a reason it’s called The People’s Choice. And not Your Local Newspaper’s Choice. Not the Former Actors Who Still Yield Tremendous Power in Hollywood’s Choice. Not The Executive Who Gets Paid a Lot of Money To Tell You What to Like’s Choice. Every time somebody steps up to the podium to receive an award, they have you to thank. Nor could they have done any of it without you. So you might want to take advantage of this opportunity because it only comes along once a year. Then you get to tune in from the comfort and privacy of your living room and watch the fruits of your labor. How’s that for win-win? Please join us!
