Award season is officially among us!
As it’s no surprise that I love celebrities and all things media related such as film, TV, music & theatre, I love this time of year so I decided to do a quick recap of the American “People’s Choice Awards” for 2016.
First of all, just to summarise the PCAs it has been an award show in America since 1975 and covers the art-forms of Film, TV, Music & Digital. I also just want to say that I love this award show in particular because it’s voted by the people, and everyone around the world can submit their votes. To me, this makes it a more meaningful award because for the artists becuase ultimately they couldn’t do their jobs if the public didn’t have interest in them and their work(s).
Now onto the good stuff…
For the TV & Movie categories:
A special Humanitarian award went to Ellen Degeneres, and rightfully so in my eyes, as this woman is so generous, giving and loving. However, during her speech she raised the valid point of it baffled her slightly, as she felt being kind should be everyone’s first nature. Though she seemed humbled, as she also picked up the award for Daytime TV show host.
Sandra Bullock was crowned Favourite Movie Actress, and gave a moving speech about working mothers and her son. Minions was also the champion in the Favourite Family Movie category. Channing Tatum was alongside her as he took the award for Favourite Movie Actor.
Another successor was Melissa McCarthy, as she took Favourite Comedic Movie Actress & Favorite Comedic TV Actress therefore proving the people adore her comedy! She also gave a very moving speech, and seemed genuinely overwhelmed.
Johnny Depp showed up looking cooler than ever and was prided on being Favorite Dramatic Movie Actor, meanwhile the rising talent of Dakota Johnson became Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress but had a near wardrobe malfunction incident on-stage.
Vin Diesel gave a long and emotional speech about Furious 7 and Paul Walker.
There was also drama on-stage when The Talk won for Favorite Daytime TV Hosting Team
Lady Gaga’s partner Taylor Kinney was triumphant as he was announced Favorite Dramatic TV Actor.
There were several obvious winners, such as Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory, Pretty Little Liars and Orange is the New Black in the TV categories, but equally a few surprises.
As for the Music & Digital categories:
Many of the winners were predictable with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Fifth Harmony (who beat the seemingly unbeatable One Direction!) & Shawn Mendes being triumphant in their various categories.
Madonna was crowned Music Icon, and unsurprisingly Justin Bieber‘s tune “What Do You Mean?” became the Favourite Song.
However, there were still some surprises as Britney Spears won for Favorite Social Media Celebrity and Connor Franta won for Favorite YouTube Star over the likes of Grace Heilberg and Tyler Oakley.
There we have it, that’s a rough summation of the PCAs 2016. Congratulations to all winners and nominees (click here for the full list of winners). Who were you pleased to see win? Or disappointed to see they missed out? What other award shows are you excited about this year? Let me know!
