'Awkward' star Molly Tarlov really wanted to be Kelly Kapowski -- VIDEO


She may play a mean girl on TV, but Awkward‘s Molly Tarlov is nice in real life — even if you insisted on being Kelly Kapowski when you “played Saved by the Bell” with her when you were younger. She makes a few other confessions in our Pop Culture Personality Test below. (And for a Britney Spears-related admission, catch her in our special Prom Confessional.) READ FULL STORY

'Awkward' star Ashley Rickards takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO


Ashley Rickards is a serious ’90s kid.

When the Awkward star came by EW to take her Pop Culture Personality Test, she called out the 1997 kid-favorite film Good Burger as the movie she’s seen the most times — and you thought she was cool before!

On the Awkward front, the MTV star warned that Jenna is going to be experiencing some fallout when it comes to romantic relationships. “These back ten episodes [of which the show is currently in the middle of] are really interesting because for the first time we get to see Jenna make bad decisions that don’t actually have a silver lining. These last episodes [of the season] are really just life because sometimes it just is what it is.”

When it comes to the season finale, airing Dec. 24, Rickards teased, “When we finished filming it, I cried.” But fans shouldn’t take that to mean anything particularly bad for Jenna. She adds with a laugh: “But I cry every time we finish filming!”

To find out Rickards’ thoughts on SpongeBob SquarePants (we told you she’s a girl after your cartoon-loving heart!) and more, watch below:

People's Choice Awards red carpet report: Olivia Munn, 'Awkward', and more

In the midst of the prestige awards season, the People’s Choice Awards can serve as a healthy reminder that at least on some level, entertainment is made for the fans and wouldn’t exist without them. Whether through social media, or encounters at the grocery store, everyone on the carpet had their own favorite fan encounter, and none seem to tire of hearing when people like their work.

Presenter Olivia Munn (The Newsroom) described growing up in a military family, having to move around consistently and fight for herself.  With her fans, she said, she didn’t have to fight anymore. They’d fight on her behalf. “My fans have given me everything,” said Munn on the People’s Choice Awards red carpet, Wednesday. “They’re people who are helping me make my dreams come true.”

Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell echoed Munn’s humbleness. “Without the fans we wouldn’t have the show. We found out last night that we took over half of Twitter during our premiere which is insane. It’s incredible. The support is amazing,” she said.
