Video of Moonlight's People's Choice Awards win and Alex's speech

This is a fab Alex moment :) The video shows Queen Latifah announcing Moonlight as the winner of the People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama. We also see Alex O'Loughlin's acceptance speech and his answers to the fan's questions. I know that he won over even more fans with his thoughtful words and easy going manner. He looks soooooo good in this clip. I adore his lovely Australian accent. He really needed, and deserved, the time off to go home to Australia.

Alex graciously mentions and congratulates the other finalists in Moonlight's category ~ Gossip Girl & Private Practice. Other winners did not do that same. Again, showing Alex is such a good guy!

Who else thought the answer to "What makes Vampires so sexy?" should be "DUH ~ just look at him!?!" *grin*

Here is a transcript of Alex's endearing speech......

"I'm lost for words. Well... I'm not. I've got some words, and I'll give them to you now. I'm so incredibly happy. I feel so privileged to be a part of this show in the first place. Having to stop it at 12 episodes, because of you know, because of the writers strike and stuff has been really frustrating. But to even be considered for this award was thrilling to me, because it's not about a panel of judges. It's about our fans, and it's about all you people that watch the show. It's about the people. The people voting. To know ~ I found out today ~ we've had over 10 million votes, which is incomprehensible to me. I'm just really, really thrilled. I'm so, so happy to accept this award. I'd love to just say congratulations to Private Practice and Gossip Girl... the other two finalists with Moonlight. Thank you so much to all you people who voted for us. And, let's all pray for another season. Thank you! Thank you!"
