People’s Choice Awards 2011 Hosted By Queen Latifah
People’s Choice Awards 2011 are right around the corner and Queen Latifah is set to host.
Awards season is just getting started and up first are the People’s Choice Awards set to air January 5th 2011. The People’s Choice awards rely strictly on fan voting to decide who wins the awards. Since it is a popularity contest (or at least an exercise in whoever has the most active fans) we should be seeing some pretty familiar faces getting their awards. One of the more interesting categories is Favorite Movie Actress where we see Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston square off. Also in that category are Julia Roberts, Katherine Heigl and Kristen Stewart. It could be an interesting category because while we are all looking at Jolie and Aniston, Kristen Stewart and her legion of Twilight fans could swoop in and win the award.
This is also a fun awards show that has categories like Favorite on Screen Team, Favorite TV Chef and Favorite TV Crime Fighter. People’s Choice Awards covers movies, TV shows and music including Favorite Music Video. They even have a Favorite Viral Video Star award. With all of these categories most of them will not air, but the major categories that will bring out the biggest stars will be in the broadcast. Leading the nominations is the TV show Glee with five nominations followed by musical acts Eminem and Lady Gaga with four each.
This year Queen Latifah has been tapped as host. She should be great. She is funny, likeable and should keep things rolling along. So far there have been 175 million votes cast. With a few weeks left to vote that number should go way up. This is the first year that the show is allowing people to vote via Twitter, Facebook, Myspace or just about any other social media. I would look for that the greatly help those nominees like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga who have a huge presence online.
This year’s live People’s Choice Awards performers are Mary J. Blige and Cobra Starship featuring Nicole Sherzinger. An interesting side note about the show is that you can buy tickets to go to it and actually site up close near the stars. Prices for basic tickets start at $250 and go up to $1,000 each for VIP tickets. So if you want to hobnob with the stars, get out your wallet.
