ICYMI: A Cheat Sheet to Last Night’s People’s Choice Awards

Lester Cohen

The People’s Choice Awards are always a nice way to kick-off awards season, as they tend to take themselves less seriously than other ceremonies and therefore allow attendees the opportunity to kick back and relax before all of the real madness begins this weekend with the Globes. While nothing from last night’s telecast broke the internet, there were a few moments you should note for your watercooler conversations today.

What was your favorite moment? Let us know in the comments below.

Ellen DeGeneres’ Humanitarian Award

Because she deserved it, and because her acceptance speech included the following quip, "I just think that kindness is something that we should all have. That's an innate quality that we have and we need more of that out there. I read a great quote recently, 'What if there was no such thing as love? Just proof of love.' I don't know if it was from the Bible or an Instagram, but either way it's powerful."

When Sharon Osbourne Kicked Someone

We wouldn’t normally advocate for violence, but something about seeing Sharon Osbourne act so punk rock at age sixty-three warmed our hearts. When an audience member crashed the stage as The Talk’s hosts were accepting their award, Ms.Osbourne reacted by both kicking him and flipping him off. While she might not make it onto the invite list for the Oscars as a result, we’d say her sweet and swift defense was well worth it.
