The People's Choice Awards were announced last week. Some of the nomineees include Shrek, Pearl Harbor and The Fast and the Furious for Best Picture and Oprah Winfrey, Calista Flockhart and Jennifer Aniston for Best Female Television Performer. The thing about these awards is, judging by nominees like Tom Hanks and Mel Gibson for Favorite Motion Picture Actor, you don't have to have had a movie out this year to get nominated.
If you're looking for some tube time that fills you with the Christmas spirit this week - the networks won't let you down. At 8pm on Thursday, December 6, 2001 you can catch the classic A Charlie Brown Christmas on ABC. This is a favorite of many, afterall, who can resist that crappy little tree Charlie gets? Kinda makes you sad your parents got a big, full one.
