Talk about one mother of a House party.
Not only did House take home Favorite Television Drama at last night's People's Choice Awards, Hugh Laurie also scored a win, and Lisa Edelstein won her first major award for her flawless performance as Cuddy on the hit Fox drama. (Our professional commentary on all that? Woo to the freaking hoo! And you can quote that.)
To celebrate, we asked Lisa to tackle some burning Q's from fans...
For starters, and clearly much to the delight of all you "Huddy" fans, Lisa says she's been loving acting out the House and Cuddy romance this season, and hopes it keeps going strong. "It's been amazing," Lisa told us. "I've certainly had a lot more to do, and I've loved that...I love working with Hugh, and I've gotten to do that a lot. I just think it had to happen at some point. You can't just keep running around in circles. So now we'll move forward and see what happens from there, but I've really enjoyed the storyline."
So what about those other femmes fatale at Princeton-Plainsboro? While Olivia Wilde ("Thirteen") has been MIA for much of the season (maybe you caught her most recently in Tron?), Amber Tamblyn has stepped in to fill the void. "I adore Amber Tamblyn," Lisa says. "First of all, she's been acting since she was an embryo, and she's very bright, and she's very together, and she's hilariously funny...Really confident--a really self-confident young woman. Olivia, too--it's nice to be around such smart, confident, together young women."
As for the money Q--Will Olivia Wilde ever return as a series regular?--Lisa says, "I think she's still considered one [a series regular]. It's just that she's off being a movie star. Bye, Olivia. It was nice knowing you...She's coming back. She's coming back this year."
As for her big win last night, and the show's sweep, Lisa is about as grateful as grateful gets. "It's amazing. It's amazing! Because it's our audience, and I feel appreciated, and in fact I'm not acting in a vacuum. It's really great to be acknowledged by the people that watch the show."
