Neil Patrick Harris didn't say a word about last week's revelation that he's gay. When the announcement was finished, Harris made a fast exit, leaving a dozen or so reporters who'd been hoping for interviews.
Also making a speedy exit was Isaiah Washington. He, too, announced some of the nominations but left before talking with reporters. This was one of his first public appearances since he was involved in a fight on the set of "Grey's Anatomy" a few weeks ago.
Johnny Depp, Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Ellen DeGeneres, Carrie Underwood and Shakira lead the nominees for the 33rd annual People's Choice Awards.
