People's Choice Awards: The People Get It Wrong

People's Choice Awards Jennifer Lawrence Catching FirePeople's Choice Awards 2014: Gee, why aren't the Oscars more like them? (Photo: Jennifer Lawrence in 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire')

People are always bitching about the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences not representing the tastes of the average moviegoer. The Academy is accused of being elitist and snobbish, snotty and snooty, old and tired. Well, below you'll find the list of winners and nominees of the 2014 People's Choice Awards (select categories). So, this is what the Academy Awards would look like if they were popular (or populist), young, and vibrant; in other words, if they were to truly represent the likes and dislikes of the average moviegoer (at least in the United States).

The list below will also give you an idea of what the Emmys and Grammys should look like if they were to truly represent the likes and dislikes of the average U.S. TV watcher and music listener.

But wait … In the movie categories, where are Paul Walker and Jennifer Lawrence? Is Johnny Depp listed for the box office bomb The Lone Ranger? See, not even The People get it right.
