Olivia Munn: People's Choice Is the 'Most Exciting' Award Show of the Season (VIDEO)
Alas, the long-awaited awards season is in full swing, with the Golden Globes, Grammys and the Academy Awards all coming down the pipeline. But for Olivia Munn, the best show has already come and gone.
“Growing up and watching the People’s Choice Awards, it was always the most exciting one for me by far,” the comedienne told Celebuzz on the ceremony’s Wednesday red carpet at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif.
Stunning in a Carolina Herrera frock paired with black Christian Louboutin platform pumps, Munn even played a part in evening, presenting the People's Choice trophy for Favorite Country Artist alongside Johnny Galecki.
But as a beaming Taylor Swift strolled on stage to collect her win, Munn pulled a bit of a Kanye West. After Munn casually snatching the award out of Swift’s hands, the country-pop crooner joked, “This always happens.”
“And it always will happen, Taylor,” Munn said dryly. “This is your lot in life.”
Then Munn slipped back into a smile and returned the award to its rightful recipient, saying, “I’m not going to be this person.”
"I love everyone there," the actress gushed of the Fox comedy cast. But Munn is still flexing her dramatic muscles on HBO series Newsroom.
"We’re in the second season of Newsroom now and it will premiere in June so we’re shooting it now," she explained. "It’s so much fun to go from hardcore drama with [Aaron] Sorkin to doing this really fun comedy on New Girl."
