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.
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.)
