Anna Faris and Allison Janney Diss Ellen DeGeneres while Hosting the 2015 People Choice’s Awards

The spotlight is on Ellen DeGeneres this time as People’s Choice Awards hosts, Anna Faris and Allison Janney diss her for being “too busy.” Read on for more details.

We’re all used to seeing and hearing DeGeneres joke about Hollywood stars, but on the 2015 People’s Choice Awards, the joke is on her as the event’s hosts, Faris and Janney diss her for skipping out on hosting.


According to Dailymail, the two hosts first had a rundown of the qualities that make a good host. Janney said a good host is “a complicated test of knowledge charm, likeability looks.” Farris counters her by saying, “Oh who are we kidding? Neil Patrick Harris, 41, was unavailable and Ellen DeGeneres said she was busy!”

Faris and Janney spilled the joke even when DeGeneres was seated in the audience. DeGeneres attended the event with her wife, Portia de Rossi. DeGeneres, however, was a good sport as a camera slowly focuses on DeGeneres as she played along the hosts’ skit.

DeGeneres snagged the “Favorite Daytime TV Host” award for the fifteenth time, for which the TV host thanked her fans for accepting her and supporting her with whatever she wants to do. She also said that having received the award for 15 times might mean that she’s “doing something right” and that whatever she’s doing brings about a connection with the audience.

Other highlights of the event include Faris and husband, Chris Pratt’s hilarious opening for the 2015 People’s Choice Awards. Pratt disses Faris by saying that he was busy being a big-shot movie star that he doesn’t have time to go to the event with her.

In an interview with CBC, Faris admitted that she and co-host and “Mom” co-star Janney are terrified for being chosen as hosts for the 2015 People’s Choice Awards. Janney said that she and Faris have “never hosted a show before” and spilled that the event coordinators might have been crazy for choosing them.

Janney wore a silver-sequined gown while Faris sported a white low-cut top. The 2015 People’s Choice Awards was held on Jan. 7, 2015 in Los Angeles.
