2011 People's Choice Awards

I hardly ever watch awards show programs but last night Hawaii Five-0 was up for Best New Drama. Not only did I want to see if the show won but I wanted to see the acceptance speech if it did.

The show DID win - YEA!!!!! The cast wasn't at the awards show because they are still filming in Hawaii. A pre-recorded acceptance message was shown instead. (Evidently all of those shows who were nominated taped a message to be shown in case they won.)

All 4 of the main Hawaii Five-0 cast were shown on one of the beaches. Daniel Dae Kim spoke first, then Scott Caan and finally, Alex O'Loughlin. What??? What about Grace Park? She was there. I kind of felt sorry for her. I don't mean to criticize and I certainly don't know the circumstances behind the taping but I thought Grace should have gotten to say something. Oh, well. Maybe the next time the show wins an award - and I'm pretty sure it will - Grace will get in on the acceptance speech.

Some of the other winners were no surprise to me -

Taylor Swift - Country Artist
Movie Actor - Johnny Depp
Comedic Star - Adam Sandler
Favorite Family Movie - Toy Story 3

There were some however, that really surprised me -

Comedy Actor - Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother). I was totally shocked that Jim Parsons (Big Bang Theory) didn't win.

TV Comedy - Glee. Again, I was surprised that The Big Bang Theory didn't win.

Favorite New TV Comedy: $#*! My Dad Says. Mike and Molly really should have won that category.

Movie Star Under 25 - Zac Effron. I really thought Robert Pattinson had that one sewn up especially because
Twilight: Eclipse won as the Favorite Movie AND the favorite Drama Movie plus Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart won as the Favorite On-screen Team.

Those are just a few of the winners. If you didn't see the show and are interested you can see who the nominees and the winners were for 2011 here.


  1. I didn't watch it but I agree, I thought Big Bang Theory and Jim Parsons should have walked away with it.
    Oh well, there's always next year.

    Your Friend,

  2. I guess I'm going to have to watch Hawaii Five-O to see what I'm missing. When does it come on?

  3. Well those are interesting choices. I was grateful to see of my favorites were at least nominated! Woooooooohoooooooo!

  4. I am glad that Hawaii-5-O won. I really like that show.
    I am not a big fan of Taylor Swift however.
    have a nice day

  5. I love the new Hawaii Five-O too. The Husband on the other hand keeps comparing it to the original series and doesn't like it. However, what can you expect of a man that considers Gunsmoke great tv?

  6. Oh I forgot to watch :( Thanks for the update though ;0

    Glad your Hawaii Five-O cast won!

  7. I rarely watch those shows but it always intrigues me who wins. I'm glad GLee won but since I'm getting old and don't watch a lot of TV except sports, I don't seem to know who half of the people are.
    I am glad Hawaii-Five O won for you!!!

  8. I'm stuck on your header! I love it. Made me smile.

    Have a good weekend.

  9. Well Hello friend!! Long time no see. Im so glad you are still right here ;) I agree Me like H50 and am starting to really get into it. I loved it back 30 years ago, lol!! xox LA

  10. I forgot to watch the awards show! I love awards show! I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait for the Golden Globes.
