Last night, apparently, the People's Choice Awards were aired on CBS. I used to think the PCA was a reliable gauge of American popular tastes--I have a photo on my bulletin board of presenter Drew Barrymore hugging PCA winner Mr. T in 1984. (There was no man more deserving than he!) But frankly, I'm not sure what to make of some of yesterday's winners:
Favorite Female Movie Star: Sandra Bullock (Was she even in a movie last year?)
Favorite Movie: Star Wars: Episode III, which beat out Hitch and Batman Begins.
Favorite Movie Drama: Star Wars: Episode III, which beat out Coach Carter and Batman Begins.
Favorite Male Action Star: Matthew McConaughey, who was also recently named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.
Favorite Song From a Movie: "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" by Jessica Simpson from The Dukes of Hazzard (I'm sure the video was great.)
