The nominees for the 33rd Annual People's Choice Awards were announced on Tuesday (Nov. 7).
Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, Isaiah Washington and Kate Walsh, none of whom were individually nominated for a People's Choice Award, were on hand to reveal the nominations.
Many of The People's choices -- compiled with the help of Knowledge Networks, a leading market research company -- were pretty obvious. Guess what? The People like "CSI," "Grey's Anatomy" and "House." They also enjoy "American Idol" and Oprah Winfrey. On the big screen, they like Johnny Depp and when they listen to music, they prefer country.
The nomination process was explained thusly: "Knowledge Networks used its consumer research resources, which include the only projectable, Web-based, nationally representative panel, to identify a pop-culture-involved sample of men and women ages 18-49. For each category, the respondents were provided with a set of candidates determined by national ratings averages, box-office grosses and album sales. The respondents then chose their favorites in Television, Movies and Music. They also had the option to write in their favorites where not included among the provided candidates. Their top three selections in each category became the final nominees."
