Playing Anna Faris on Last-Minute Prep for People's Choice Awards: 'I'm Scared Right Now'

The People's Choice Awards air tomorrow night on CBS, and ET has a look at the prep and an update from the show's hosts, Mom stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney.

The first thing we spotted inside Nokia Theatre L.A. Live is who is sitting next to who?

Sitting front and center is Favorite Movie Actor nominee Robert Downey Jr. who is seated next to Ben Affleck. Also in front, the cast of The Big Bang Theory and Iggy Azalea. Presenter Kevin Hart will be laughing it up a row behind them.

Sitting next to each other are Favorite Action Movie Actor nominee Chris Evans and Favorite TV Icon nominee Betty White.

Executive producer Mark Burnett told ET that Iggy Azalea will play a big part in the show, as will Fall Out Boy (who will perform "Centuries") and Lady Antebellum (who will perform "Freestyle").

The show will also feature a look at the new CBS comedy The Odd Couple starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon. Watch the video for your first look at the show, premiering Feb. 19.

Anna and Allison are also nominated for their CBS comedy, Mom, which airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, but Anna is just trying to focus on hosting.

"I'm scared right now looking at this stage," Anna told ET. "I want my husband to come with me."

Anna's husband Chris Pratt will likely be absent from the show, as the couple's 2-year-old son Jack has an upcoming medical procedure.

"Our sweet son is having eye surgery, so [Chris] may be home with him," Anna said.

The surgery news comes two years after Jack was born premature at 3 pounds and 12 ounces. At the time, the doctors told the couple that Jack may need cosmetic surgery to correct his eyes and that he might have special needs.

Anna told GQ in the outtakes of Pratt's December Man of the Year interview, the news was "devastating," but they knew they could face the challenges ahead. "[I]t also felt like, you know, 'We can do this.'" Faris said.

People's Choice Awards airs Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
