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

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
