Los Angeles- The People's Choice Awards usually is a so-so award show where stars come knowing they are winning something beforehand. Its a win-win for everyone and you get exposure and a nice glass trophy.
Tuesday, the show was brought up another notch when the some mega-stars showed up.
How about Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn? Throw in Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz, Carmen Electra, Christina Applegate, Eva Longoria, and Patrick Dempsey with rest of the Grey's Anatomy cast.
Even though this was a CBS telecast, stars from the other networks decided to invade the show. Practically everyone from NBC's Heroes showed up. Howie Mandel of NBC's Deal or No Deal.
ABC brought Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman and Longoria. Ugly Betty was represented by Vanessa Williams.
Queen Latifah didn't need a reason to come. Maybe just to say hi to LL Cool J and Halle.
Emily Proctor and Joely Fisher vied for the low-cut dress of the evening award.
Aniston and Vaughn made their way to the press room for photographs, albeit separately. Vince, his usual surly self and Jennifer, all smiles.
The real couple of the night seemed to be Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi. They posed together, but the cries from photographers for them to kiss fell on deaf ears.
The award show, which used to be held in Pasadena, is now in the same spot where the Emmys and Screen Actors Guild have their show, at the Shrine Auditorium. They are also using the same public relations firm that does the Emmys too. It now actually feels like a real Awards Show.
