The 25th Annual People's Choice Awards Saw a Whole Lotta Loving' Going on
There was requited infatuation as well. Clooney's ER scrubmate, a beaming Alex Kingston, hung on the arm of her new hubby, writer Florian Haertel; James Woods and his date, starlet Natasha Gregson Wagner, gave the term "main squeeze" a literal interpretation; and Jesse's Christina Applegate and boyfriend Johnathon Schaech seemed Velcroed to each other. Double-winner Titanic director James Cameron, whose marriage to Linda Hamilton hit an iceberg last year, even let his blonde gal-pal actress Suzy Amis hold one of his awards (as weighty as "two Oscars and a Golden Globe," Cameron told host Ray Romano).
The hefty glass figurine is especially prized because it comes from average Janes and Joes via a Gallup poll. "I just bought a new home, and I don't own a single piece of furniture," confessed Will & Grace star Debra Messing, whose show tied for Favorite New Television Comedy Series with another NBC nominee, Jesse. "I think that we will design the house around the award."
With the booty distributed, a thousand partygoers retreated to the Beverly Hilton Hotel to nosh on shrimp, quesadillas and cheesecake and to show off their threads. Because People's Choice fashion stakes are relatively low, basic black reigned (Helen Hunt, LeAnn Rimes, Brooke Shields), and designs stayed simple. The show was "a palate cleanser before the showdown to the Golden Globes and the Oscars," says designer Randolph Duke. The mood was so laid-back, Favorite Male Musical Performer Garth Brooks showed up in a mismatched tuxedo. "Yeah, I got the wrong pants on," he said, shrugging. Meanwhile, ER's Kellie Martin had good reason to customize her white satin gown by Richard Tyler. "I asked them to make the slit higher, she said. "I'm feeling a little frisky."
