Just looking over the categories of tonight’s People’s Choice Awards, I feel like they are beginning to meld with the easier style of the MTV Awards. Not that I disagree with doing that, as that’s more what people really care about, but the only categories that seem to be missing are Best Screen Couple and Best Kiss. Regardless, I have my DVR set. It’s an awards show that I won’t have to forward through most of it. Check out your other favorite shows at TV-Links.
