angelinajolie.jpgBefore you write off the People's Choice Awards alltogether, allow me to remind you that last year, the People (who are these People, anyway?) passed over other, reliably milquetoast nominees such as Shrek 2 and The Incredibles in order to give the Best Film award to none other than Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11. Almost a year later, I *still* haven't quite finished unpacking what that says about our culture - so let's jump ahead and make fun of this year's crop of nominees, shall we? It's been decided that the proletariats will line up to fellate their favorite celebrities in two seperate, but indistinguishable categories: Favorite Male/Female Movie Star, and Favorite Leading Man/Lady. What's the difference between a Movie Star and a Leading Lady? I have no clue, but apparently, Renee Zellweger, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz know something about being ladies that Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman do not. Also, Softpedia is making a big deal out of the fact that Angie and Brad-dad have been nommed together in the Favorite On-Screen Match-up category. "The implications of the couple being nominated for Mr. And Mrs. Smith are immense," somebody Soft writes. "That might force them to appear at the ceremony together, after they have so hard tried to keep their relationship off the press." Yeah ... except, I get the feeling that anyone trying to "force" Angelina Jolie to do anything may be in for an unpleasant surprise.
