The People’s Choice Awards is the kind of celebrity event that turns a regular person into a screaming fan. Excitement builds up in Los Angeles hours before the January 9th event. Early in the morning, workers are busy setting the stage. Chefs and kitchen staff are preparing for a night of festivities, and workers are rolling out miles of red carpet. Bleachers, velvet ropes and promotional staging pop out of the floor moments before the spectators and celebrities arrive. Guests with VIP tickets will be whisked into exclusive red carpet viewing areas for close-up celebrity sightings.
Nothing compares to the electric atmosphere of the red carpet at a hot award show. The thing is—The People’s Choice Awards aren’t like other award shows. This event single-handedly set pop-culture standards for the past 40 years, and it’s kept up with the times. Fans still get to vote for their favorite music, television and film personalities in 43 categories, but now they get to do it online.
Fans and celebrities agree that the People’s Choice Awards is their favorite event. There is no other award show where Demi Lovado, Neil Patrick Harris and fan favorite Betty White are given equal time in the spotlight. For this spectacular celebration, the Nokia Theatre is transformed into a celebrity-studded palace with room for 7,000 VIPs. Kaley Cuoco, from The Big Bang Theory, is hosting the event for the second consecutive year; country superstar Jason Aldean is already scheduled to appear; and there are bound to be a ton of A-list presenters.
Audience members are guaranteed to catch a number of world-class performances during this star-filled evening. Producers have invested extra time in crafting a clever, well-paced award show that is funny and original. Although the dramatic award presentations and touching acceptance speeches are part of the fun, things really kick into high gear when the outrageous after-parties begin.
People’s Choice after-parties are famous for their flowing champagne and delightful hors d’oeuvres that are served up by the season’s hottest celebrity chef. They’re also known for their star-studded guest lists and exclusive performances. The People’s Choice Awards is the ultimate award show with the ultimate after-parties. Fans and celebrities love to kick off the red carpet season at the only film, music and TV award show decided entirely by the people.
