The People’s Choice Awards 2012 were held on January 11 at the Nokia Theater, Los Angeles. It was Katy Perry’s night. She topped the list of prize winners, taking home five awards including favorite female artist and song of the year, for ET.
The star, who is going through a divorce from British comedy actor Russell Brand, did not attend the awards ceremony. But Perry took to Twitter to celebrate her victories.
“THANK U to every1 who voted for me for the @peopleschoice tonight!” she wrote. “We won so many! Now I need to get more book[shelves] 2 successfully display them!”
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 also did well, winning four awards, including favorite movie and ensemble film cast. The stars of the film, which also picked up best action movie and book adaptation, were also absent from the awards ceremony.
The People’s Choice is the earliest of Hollywood’s annual awards shows. But unlike the Oscars or the Golden Globes, however, the winners are chosen by fans.
Ellen DeGeneres, Nina Dobrev, Chloe Grace Moretz, Adam Levine from Maroon 5, Lea Michele and Demi Lovato were among the winners who accepted their awards in person.
Robert Pattinson’s latest film Water for Elephants won best drama movie
Star of The Help, 23-year-old Emma Stone, won both the favourite movie actress and favorite comedic movie actress, said in her acceptance speech,
I moved to LA eight years ago this week with my mom, who’s right there. It is so insane to be standing up here right now. It is hard to describe to you.’”
Morgan Freeman was given the ceremony’s first ever film icon award.
“When I found out that I’d been nominated… I decided to look up icon,” the Hollywood actor said. “”Here’s what I found: The first definition said an icon is a tiny picture on a computer screen that represents a file.”
Kim Kardashian won the award for the Favorite TV Celebrity Reality Star, which might cheer her up and stick one in the eye of the campaigners seeking to get the Kardashian family off the TV. Somebody obviously likes them!
