Kristen Bell in Rasario at the People’s Choice Awards: 70s mermaid fail?

I went into the People’s Choice Awards with very low expectations. (Honestly I didn’t know it was happening until yesterday morning, but I rarely watch broadcast TV now). I was pleasantly surprised by how watchable it was for an awards show, but as many of you know I love this year’s host, Joel McHale. The writing was funny and they worked in some bawdy humor without being sexist (looking at you, sh-tty Golden Globe Awards). There were some nice moments, like when Tyler Perry won favorite humanitarian and they showed clips of how he has personally helped people in need. That touched me and made me realize I’m a selfish person who needs to do more for my community. The opening segment, when Joel McHale brought out a bunch of babies in a multi-baby stroller, was questionable, especially because one of the babies was bawling and was clearly in distress. (At least they didn’t Benadryl them ahead of time I guess.) Other than that I found it a fun little awards show, despite the fact that Hollywood is still trying to prop up drunk abuser Johnny Depp. They’re throwing good money after bad with that guy.


Kristen Bell had a couple of presenting jobs last night, she presented favorite movie comedic actor along with Matt LeBlanc and she gave Tyler Perry his much-deserved humanitarian award. Her teleprompter failed halfway through the intro for Perry and she admitted this and then ad libbed the rest of her speech like a pro. You could tell she was making it up as she went along and it worked. Then, after they showed the video segment of Perry buying vans for disabled people, building homes for families in need and just generally being an awesome person, Bell made an unnecessary explanation of why she hadn’t memorized the whole speech. This is her Type A personality coming out and I get it. Still, it wasn’t about her and she should have realized that. (You can see Tyler’s inspiring speech here, The People’s Choice Awards didn’t put up the intro part unfortunately.)

Bell was in this very curious Rasario silver jumpsuit featuring a bizarre white bust. This looked like Little Mermaid meets Saturday Night Fever and it was questionable to say the least. I like the fact that it’s a jumpsuit and that it looks comfortable, but this would have worked better without the bra thing.

Here’s Kaley Cuoco in Lela Rose. There was a lot of questionable fashion last night, but I guess that’s to be expected for a secondary awards show like this. Big Bang Theory won Favorite Network TV Comedy (video is here), which was its eighth People’s Choice Award. I guess that speaks to either how popular it still is and/or how influential CBS is. That’s the same network which aired the PCA and they won a bunch of awards. Plus most of the Big Bang cast showed up, except for Jim Parsons, and that seems to be the major requirement for winning a PCA.

Jada Pinkett Smith came on at the end to introduce Johnny Depp, who won for Favorite Movie Icon and then made a drunken speech about how his fans have stood by him despite the fact that he’s a terrible person. (My words obviously.) He said “I came here for you, the people, who through whatever good times or bad have stood by me and trusted me.” Poor Johnny Depp, getting called out for being an abusive SOB. The nation does have a history of trusting abusive SOBs despite all the evidence that it will end badly. You could tell that someone tried hard to make Johnny look presentable

Getting back to the fashion, Jada was in a tight black Dolce and Gabbana dress with a tie front and I liked it. She looked hot. This was a great choice for the event.

      Agree! Kristen’s is the worst and all I can think is “butt pad” lol. Jada wore this during her MC scene in Magic Mike XXL didn’t she?

  2. Esmom says:

    Kristen seems like she’s not afraid to take a few fashion risks, which I like, but yeah those white cups are unfortunate. She looks so fresh faced and lovely, though.

    Jada does look hot. And I don’t hate Kaley’s dress, the top is very flattering on her. The yoga hair is not good, imo.

  3. L84Tea says:

    She looks like she has whipped cream on her boobs.

  4. MsGoblin says:

    Jada’s read the Jennifer Lopez playbook on posing – with her open mouth and squinty eyes.

    I’m so tired of this look.

  5. Runcmc says:

    Kaley’s hair…. uhhhh… that looks like my post-workout messy bun.

  6. Slowsnow says:

    Why did Kristen superglue two origamied chef’s hats onto her boobs? If it was to hide the horrendous fabric it worked! Brava! Only noticed it the second time I looked. Well done.

  7. kimbers says:

  8. QQ says:

  9. whyme says:

    Like others, I thought she had whipped cream on her breasts. Not a good look but she’s very pretty and I love her show The Good Place! I hope more people watch it and enjoy it as much as my husband and I do. I don’t want it to be cancelled!

    I love Kristen but that outfit gets a no from me.
    That’s awesome that Perry has used his success to help people who need it.

    In the future, it would be ideal if you would state “people with disabilities” rather than “disabled people.” By using person-first language, you will help to clarify that a disability does not define someone. It is something that they have rather than something that they are.

  12. kri says:

    KB’s boobs look like cupcake paper holders. And is that…METALLIC GINGHAM!!!?? My gawd. I didn’t know there was such a thing. If you threw that dress at an attacker he would run for his damn life.

  13. Servina says:

    Holy chicken cutlet cheeks – Jada got her old face back

  14. Taxi says:

    Kristen’s white booblet cups are awful & the rear view is just shy of a wedgie. Does her stylist hate her?
    Jada looks like a hard mess.

  15. squeezeolime says:

    Jada can fuk right off

  16. Lindy says:

    Jada’s body, tho!!!!

    And I love me some Kristen Bell, I really do, but that is the worst thing I’ve ever seen her wear.
