The 41st annual People’s Choice Awards aired Wednesday night with Allison Janney and Anna Faris, stars of the CBS comedy “Mom,” hosting the event. The duo came to play with jokes and sketches meant to entertain the star-studded audience and fans watching from home. But not everyone was amused.
Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, who plays Penny on the hit CBS comedy “The Big Bang Theory,” played a part in a sketch with Janney and Faris poking fun at CBS’ Chuck Lorre sitcoms. Lorre created and produced four current shows on CBS – Cuoco-Sweeting’s “The Big Bang Theory,” “Two and a Half Men,” “Mike and Molly” and “Mom.” The sketch featured a faux taping of the shows in which the actors accidentally mixed up their scripts between the different shows, resulting in chaos.
Despite appearing in the sketch herself, Cuoco-Sweeting, 29, did not appear to be enjoying herself while watching the pre-taped sketch from the audience at the awards Wednesday. A shot of the actress, via Zap2It, shows her unamused and perhaps even grimacing. Cuoco-Sweeting has not publicly addressed her reaction to the sketch, but the sketch and other comedy bits throughout the night seemed to underwhelm the whole crowd, not just her.
It’s unclear whether Cuoco-Sweeting had a personal objection to the sketch, or if she was simply unamused like many others in the audience. Despite her apparent distate for the skit, the actress did have reason to celebrate.“The Big Bang Theory” cleaned up at the 2015 People’s Choice Awards, winning Favorite TV Show. Cuoco-Sweeting also won for Favorite Comedic TV Actress. It looks like plenty of people are laughing at her character, even if she didn’t seem to find herself funny in the sketch.
