Kaley Cuoco in Peggy Hartanto at the People’s Choice Awards: cute or fug?


I couldn’t even make it past an hour of the awkwardness of the People’s Choice Awards. And I’m saying that as someone who loves Allison Janney, but Janney should not be tapped to co-host award shows. The whole thing was just stilted and uncomfortably unfunny. You can see the list of winners here. Let’s get to the fashion. We’ll start with Kaley Cuoco in this Peggy Hartanto jumpsuit. It looks like a repurposed swimsuit with bad pants. Not Kaley’s best look, especially with the hair fail. When she presented with Josh Gad and Kevin Hart, Kaley even made a “joke” about this being part of “apology tour” for what she said about feminism. Because hahaha Kaley is a privileged white woman with no awareness of the struggles of women around her, isn’t that funny?


Ellen Pompeo won Favorite Dramatic TV Actress for Grey’s Anatomy. She wore this Elie Saab suit which was quite honestly one of my favorite looks of the evening. That’s how low the bar was set. It is a good suit, but Ellen is looking kind of orange.


Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi came out. I guess they’ve worked out their problems? Sure. Portia wore this awful Zuhair Murad. It looks dated and cheap.


Matt Bomer is everything. His skin is like butter. He’s more beautiful than most women. He won for Favorite Cable TV Actor.



Viola Davis looked amazing in a bright Escada gown. She won the People’s Choice for Favorite Actress in a New TV Show. In her acceptance speech (you can see it here), she referenced that awful New York Times story that called her “less classically beautiful.” Viola wins at life.

Amy Adams kind of phoned it in with this blue Gucci. She presented the humanitarian award to Ben Affleck. Blah.

    Matt Bomer and Viola Davis saved this post. So much blandness and/or fug.

  2. Lilacflowers says:

    Saw about 15 minutes of this last night and it was as if the dress code was: “wear the ugliest, most ill-fitting item of clothing you can find in your closet.”

  3. I’m gonna need some taters to get rid of the eyesore that IS Kaley’s hair. Mimif, help me!

    Every time I see Ellen and Portia, I just side eye them. I like Ellen just fine, but I never really watched her show all that much, so (like Oprah) I never drank her Kool-Aid. But they look happy here. Portia’s face is all kinds of sad.

    VIOLA! OMFG. I love her.

    I think Amy almost always phones it in–I don’t think she really cares about fashion. But she always looks nice….

      Sending some lovely crispy, roasted yukon golds with sea salt and rosemary and a shot of vodka made from potatoes.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Kaley Cuoco has morphed into Eraserhead with that new ‘do,

      And yep, Portia always seems so sad and meek, it’s hard to remember her off-beat, quirky, and independent self from the pre-Ellen days.

      • Kiddo says:

        Wow, kudos on the Eraserhead mention. Not that she looks like the character, but that was one of the strangest films I’ve ever viewed, and not everyone has heard of it, or seen it.

      • Lahdidahbaby says:

        Ahahaha, Kiddo, wasn’t it divinely weird?! That was my first outsider movie, and it was only a step from there to Pink Flamingos.

      • Kiddo says:

        It was the film that came the closest to capturing the experience of a nightmare: In it’s disjointed sense of place, time and events.

      • QQ says:

        OMG Eraserhead was THEEE worst thing I’ve seen in a while .. like i just had to stop watching it type bad/weird

        Sorta the same I feel about this Cuoco girl and her Red Carpet Smirk

        That Said, Small Mercies, Viola Looked UH-MAZING!

    • Rachel says:

      I watched a few minutes of the red carpet last night for lack of anything else to watch… Portia looked – not quite stoned- but definitely getting there.

  4. Birdie says:

    I like Portia’s outfit, but Kaley , please grow your hair out.
    Did you see that Johnny Galecki thanked Kaley’s husband on her behalf, because she forgot to thank him before. I know Kaley and Johnny get along well after their breakup, but that’s a bit awkward.

  5. Kiddo says:

    They could re-purpose Ellen Pompeo as a bronze statue for another awards show, except they will have to refinish her hands since they don’t match the rest of her skin.

    • Esmom says:

      Seriously, she is way beyond orange. It barely looks like her.

    • Antonym says:

      Four & half Boehners.

      Defer to QQ for the official rating.

      • QQ says:

        No No Antonym is more like Boehner’s rebellious Daughter we are looking at… s she went darker than dad…. Kiddo Is right, she could be handed out at the Sag Awards to be honest…

  6. Loopy says:

    The jump suit makes her look like she has a low waist and hips ala Claire Danes.

  7. PunkyMomma says:

    Mmmmmm. Matt Bomer. (That’s all I got).

    • Courtney says:

      Bomer is too pretty! Can’t be into a guy prettier than me.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        Actually that’s my mantra, too, Courtney. I hate having arm wrestle a pretty guy for mirror time. He’s gonna lose.

  8. Kate says:

    Pretty sure Amy Adams was given like zero notice that she had to come present that award to Ben last night bc they legit announced she was going like a few hours before it started. I kind of like that she probably just didn’t care about what she was wearing to such a dumb awards show and was like “yeah I’ll just wear a ponytail.”

    All that said, she was pretty darn endearing giving him his award and he was pretty cute complimenting her. It was like the only genuine moment outside of Viola Davis all night.

  9. scout says:

    As long as Kaley doesn’t talk much, it’s fine with me if she is wearing a swim suit and a pencil skirt! Ellen looks great.

    • Meaghan says:

      I loved her outfit, she looked great except for the nasty hair. But I think she is growing it out so its forgivable to me.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Viola and Amy look great. Kaley and Ellen look incredibly orange. Bomer, yay!
    I’m still trying to figure out the wins for Grey’s Anatomy. I’m surprised it’s still on, let alone picking up People’s Choice awards!

    • Bomer makes me wish I was a dude…he is so beautiful, it should be illegal.

    • Kate says:

      I stopped watching Grey’s years ago but I have several friends who swear it’s been really good again the past few years. I’m actually tempted to watch again.

      • I am too–all of the episodes are on Hulu AND Netflix…..I just got SO mad when I heard all of the crap about the plane crash, and Dr-Sexy-Who-Isn’t-Derek died….UGH. So I might give it a try again.

  11. maeliz says:

    I didn’t watch this last night, but I’m sure I didn’t miss much. Kaley needs a wig to cover up that awful hair. I think Viola looks good, but the rest of them are not eye catching

  12. Birdix says:

    KC: “Is it wrong if I say I don’t need to wear a bra with this outfit, so I didn’t need to burn it? And Johnny, I don’t need to thank my husband because I enjoy making him food.”

  13. Erandyn says:

    I can’t figure out if Kaley was always rather plain looking and the long hair hid it well, or if her face just aged badly. She simply isn’t cute anymore. Plus she seems to have developed permanent bitch-face, even when she’s smiling.

  14. Tinytown says:

    Kaley doesn’t have a pretty enough face to pull of an Ellen hairdo. Her face is very unsymmetrical. Reminds me of hatchet face from the movie cry baby!

  15. kri says:

    Viola and Matt are lovely. The rest of them are horrid. Why is everyone wearing ice skating costumes?

  16. Greek Chic says:

    I knew it would be fug before I even clicked the artιcle. It’s terrible. Her tan isn’t that bad, but maybe I like it because it’s really cold here these days and I miss summer.

    Ellen Pompeo’s jumpsuit is nice (even though it reminds me something that Kim kardashian had worn) but she is so orange!

    I like viola’s dress and Ellen DJ
    would be cuter with a white blazer that this bomber jacket.

  17. Lucy says:

    Bomer and Davis FTW!!!

  18. MissTrial says:

    I want to be Viola Davis! Love her. I like her acting and only watch How to Get Away With Murder for her. It’s a bit contrived.

    Love Allison Janney too! Didn’t watch the show ( and could not get into her show with Anna Farris) but love the pics. Allison Janney will always be C.J. Cregg! She looks better than ever.

  19. lululu says:

    Damn, Viola!

  20. Dan says:

    There’s no way Grey’s Anatomy is still on television. .. what is wrong with the world?!
