Ellen nabs two
People's Choice nominations

Ellen DeGeneres
earned two nominations Thursday from the People's Choice
Awards, announced in Los Angeles. The out comedian and
actor is up for both Daytime Talk Show Host and Funny
Female Star.

Out creator Mark
Cherry is also in the running as his Desperate
was nominated for TV
Drama—something of a surprise, since the show
competed in the comedy division of the Emmys in
September. Housewives star Teri Hatcher was
also nominated in the Female TV Star category.

The nominations
were announced by Ghost Whisperer's Jennifer
Love Hewitt, Lost's Dominic Monaghan, and show
host Craig Ferguson. Three nominees compete in each
category, all selected by polling fans. The public can pick
