Awards season is ON, everyone. And even though most of the “unscripted” bits of tonight’s People’s Choice Awards were totally and completely scripted and rehearsed, it was a good warm up for the shows coming up in the next three months. In case you skipped out on the show assuming it was just going to be another excuse for CBS to promote its shows (how dare you!), we’ve gathered the best jokes, flirtatious banter and bad dancing by hosts Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs of 2 Broke Girls, along with Heidi Klum, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, and more.
1. “I have so many boobies.” Oh, man, was that 2 Broke Girls-set opener long and full of bad line readings from the likes of Christina Aguilera and, oh, the stars of 2 Broke Girls. But the Ian Somerhalder cameo got some screams. Later, when dozens of waitresses streamed into the audience to serve burgers to the A-listers, Kat got in a couple of cute lines. “Some of me are definitely dudes,” she remarked about her voluptuous lookalikes.
2. Beth, your mike is still on. At the end of that opener, after Behrs announced she was going after Brad Paisley, and focus was supposed to shift to Kat introducing the first presenter, we witnessed a gem of a mistake. “Thank you for doing this,” she said in Brad’s ear, clearly expecting that the mike was off as she explained to the country star, “I’m supposed to stay with you until they tell me not to.” This is why we watch live shows!
3. Justin Timberlake and Ellen DeGeneres vs. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. JT thanked Ellen for the inspiration and cookies, and thanked his (not there) wife for teaching him “The little things, like just putting the dishes in the dishwasher — it goes a long way.” Yep, the honeymoon is over.
Next: Zac Efron and Shemar Moore!
