It’s that time of year again. The time when we get to see our favourite stars dressed up to the nines, award bingo and drinking games are pulled out, we prepare to sit through hours of TV time in the hope of a wardrobe malfunction, an acceptance speech controversy, or to catch a 2-second pan of our man/woman crushes. Yes folks, it’s awards season. While the first major awards are handed out this weekend at the Golden Globes, last night (January 6) in Hollywood, stars of film, TV, and music gathered for the first awards of the year and one of the more fun ones as they are decided by us… the people. Hosted by former Glee star, Jane Lynch, the People’s Choice Awards was the perfect party to kick off the season.

And the winners? No real surprises there. The movie categories were claimed by Furious 7, America’s sweetheart Sandra Bullock, and Johnny Depp. Over in TV-land, The Big Bang Theory continued their dominance, and fan-favourites Orange Is The New Black, Grey’s Anatomy, Homeland, Outlander, Supergirl, and Scream Queens all took home some hardware. On the music front, who else but Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran got top honours.

However, the night belonged to Ellen DeGeneres. Along with being awarded the “Favorite Humanitarian” award, she also took home the “Favorite Daytime TV Host” prize, making her the all-time biggest People’s Choice Award winner with 17 awards to her name. Congratulations Ellen.
