People's Choice Awards: 'Twilight' Loving, That Annoying Acceptance Speech, And Everything Else In Between
People's Choice Awards: 'Twilight' Loving, That Annoying Acceptance Speech, And Everything Else In Between
Well, you have spoken and, well, the People's Choice Awards have been given out. For the most part, the winners were an expected bunch.

House took two awards: it was voted Favorite TV Drama, and its lead, Hugh Laurie, was named Favorite TV Drama Actor. The Big Bang Theory was named Favorite TV Comedy.
Twilight is available on Amazon Prime.


Johnny Depp was named Favorite Movie Actor--and, in effect, was named Actor of the Decade after having received the most votes throughout the last ten years of the awards. Sandra Bullock was named Favorite Movie Actress. The Twilight franchise won four awards, including Favorite Movie, and Taylor Lautner was voted Favorite Breakout Movie Actor.

The music category was a bit of a no-brainer, with Taylor Swift winning Favorite Female Artist. Keith Urban took home the Favorite Male Artist award, and had a touching speech addressed to his wife, Nicole Kidman.

But I've got to mention what is perhaps the lamest thing I've ever seen in an awards ceremony. The Glee cast went up to accept their award for Favorite New TV Comedy, and they were teasing that they'd thank us for voting... by not singing. They instead sold a pizza company. Absolutely lame. Absolutely laaame. (No, I don't blame but cast, but product placement gone overboard is worse than, well, product placement.)

Okay. Rant over. The full list of winners are on the People's Choice Awards website, but I'm listing down all the major television winners here:

Favorite TV Comedy: The Big Bang Theory
Favorite TV Drama: House
Favorite TV Comedy Actor: Steve Carell, The Office
Favorite TV Comedy Actress: Alyson Hannigan, How I Met Your Mother
Favorite TV Drama Actor: Hugh Laurie, House
Favorite TV Drama Actress: Katherine Heigl, Grey's Anatomy
Favorite New TV Drama: The Vampire Diaries
Favorite New TV Comedy: Glee
Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show: Supernatural
Favorite TV Obsession: True Blood
Favorite Competition Show: American Idol

Oh, and for us who tuned in to see the sneak peek of Survivor: Heroes vs Villains, well, we got some ideas as to who's in it, including Rupert Boneham, Russell Hantz, Jessica Kiper, Benjamin Wade... pretty much the list we mentioned a few days back.
