I love the People’s Choice Awards, held this year at Microsoft Theater on January 18, 2017 in Los Angeles, California, for several reasons: 1) the nominees include a broad array of actors, actresses and TV shows, movies and bits that the average person enjoys, not just critics, film producers and elites; 2) they spread the love around and there isn’t one show or person that dominates all the awards; and 3) they have fun category like best collaboration. I mean the nominees this year for that category included:
Conan O’Brien’s Ride Along with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart
Ellen DeGeneres and Britney Spears’ Mall Mischief
James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke with Adele
Lip Sync Battle with Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum
Saturday Night Live with Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon
How fun, eh?!?

Brand new second-time mom Blake Lively showed out in in a black fringe Elie Sabb mini dress to pick up her win for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress for her role in The Shallows.

Sarah Drew in a Self-Portrait mini dress and Camilla Ludington‘s show Grey’s Anatomy won for Favorite Network TV Drama. Luddington wore a black and sheer mid-length Heidi Merrick dress, Casadei pumps and jewels by Established Jewelry. Fuller House and cast were on hand to accept their win for the Favorite Premium Comedy Series, including Jodie Sweetin attended. She juxtaposed her inner rocker girl in a Linea Pelle Collection leather jacket with a dainty wearing a feminine floor-length floral dress from Sheri Hill underneath.
Sofia Vergara was statuesque in Marchesa and Neil Lane jewels while winning the award for Favorite Comedic TV Actress.
Carrie Underwood wasn’t there but she walked away with the Favorite Female Country Artist award.
The biggest winner among all our alums was Britney Spears who nabbed the Favorite Pop Artist, Favorite Social Media Celebrity and the Favorite Comedic Collaboration for her “Mall Mischief” bit with Ellen DeGeneres. She was a no-show, however. Poo.
