NPH And Ellen Take Home Honors At The People’s Choice Awards, But Jane Lynch Steals The Show

Jan 12, 2012 by

Didn’t watch the People’s Choice Awards last night? Not to worry, you didn’t miss much—not even a Neil Patrick Harris opening number. The singing-and-dancing queen joked around with host Kaley Cuoco of Big Bang Theory about his addiction to hosting awards shows and doing musical numbers. “I’m in a 12-step program,” he deadpans. “But I’m only on step 5…6, 7, 8!”

Later in the night, NPH took home the award for Favorite TV Comedy Actor. He thanked the “the three people that are most in his life,” husband David Burtka and his two baby twins, Gideon and Harper.

Aww.

Ellen DeGeneres won the Favorite Daytime TV Host, as she has done many a time before, beating out Anderson Cooper, Kelly Ripa, Rachael Ray, and Al Roker.

Better than any of the awards mumbo-jumbo, however, was a skit featuring Jane Lynch. In a brilliant turn as Seat Coordinator Eloise Dunk, she is asked whether she has a gut feeling about celebrity seating arrangements, she responds, sotto voce: “Lower than that. I feel it in my loins.”
