People's Choice kicks off award season ... sort of

The 2008 awards season kicked off with last night's People's Choice Awards, but due to the ongoing writers' strike, NBC was forced to pare down the ceremony to a series of pre-recorded acceptance speeches, with the always-fabulous Queen Latifah playing host on the wraparound.

So, no red carpet report, ladies. For the sake of eager fashionistas everywhere, let's hope things in Hollywood return to normal soon!

That said, there were some pleasant surprises among this year's winners, including Reese Witherspoon for Favorite Female Movie Star and Drew Barrymore for Favorite Leading Lady. In the music category, Gwen Stefani walked away (on tape) with the award for Favorite Female Singer, Daughtry's "Home" came out as Favorite Rock Song, and the Police received the nod for Best Reunion Tour.

Congratulations to all of this year's winners!
