Three Grey's Anatomy Stars Up For People's Choice Awards

at . Comments

No red carpet. No fawning hosts. No celebrities. No gowns. No hairdos. No fashion faux pas. What kind of awards show is this?

"The 34th Annual People's Choice Awards" arrives at 9 p.m. tonight on CBS crippled by the writers' strike, now in its ninth week.

While the Critics' Choice Awards were staged free of picketing writers, the Golden Globes and People's Choice Awards have had to make adjustments because the celebrities are reluctant to cross picket lines.

Both awards presentations are thus switching to a newsier approach. The People's Choice scrapped its usual live show early on and promises a star-studded news magazine-style telecast tonight on CBS at 9 p.m.

Queen Latifah will lead viewers through segments shot by production teams. She doesn't interact directly with winners, she told USA Today: "I'm wacky enough to make it work. I had to tap back into my hip-hop to freestyle it."

The crystal statuettes were taken to winners at locations including Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, London and the USO tour in Kabul.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
