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

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
