3 Reasons Meredith and Cristina Should Win the People’s Choice Award for Favorite TV Gal Pals

Grey's Anatomy — and basically every network TV drama — has fallen out of favor with the Emmys, but the people of America still give the hospital drama the love it deserves. Grey's pulled in an impressive five People's Choice Awards nominations this year, and we're hoping it will earn some wins as well.

One of the categories we're really hoping to see Grey's go for the gold in is Favorite TV Gal Pals, where Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) are up against 2 Broke Girls’ Caroline and Max, How I Met Your Mother’s Lily and Robin, The Big Bang Theory’s Penny, Bernadette, and Amy, and Glee’s Rachel and Santana.

All those friendships have something going for them, but in the end we think the Twisted Sisters should come out on top. Here are three of the many reasons why.

1. Their love has lasted the longest. Grey's is the longest running of any of these series, and Mer and Cristina have been there for each other every step of their journey, from interns to owners of the hospital. They've survived shootings, plane crashes, and fights, and a decade of friendship seems worthy of award.

2. Cristina is leaving this season. These gal pals are going to have to go long distance, because Season 10 is Sandra Oh's last as a full-time cast member. Let's show them some love while they're still on screen together!

3. We need some positivity! OK, so Mer and Cristina's friendship is currently a little strained. But that's all the more reason for us to get out and vote. It's like clapping if you believe in fairies: Vote for Mer and Cristina if you believe their friendship can survive anything!

The People’s Choice Awards air on January 8, 2014, at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. You can vote at PeoplesChoice.com, their official voting app, and on Facebook or Twitter through December 5, 2013.
