People's Choice Awards 2011 - winners

Last night, the ceremony for the People's Choice Awards 2011 took place at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. Queen Latifah hosted the event that gives the general public their say in honouring film, television and music stars.  

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse won four awards, taking Favorite Movie, Movie Actress (Kristen Stewart), Drama Movie and On Screen Team (Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner). Iron Man 2 won Favorite Action Movie, Favorite Horror Movie was A Nightmare on Elm Street, while Grown Ups was named Favorite Comedy Movie. 

The only winner that stands a chance at the more serious and important awards ceremonies over the next two months was Toy Story 3 which won for Favorite Family Movie.

Johnny Depp was the winner for Favorite Movie Actor, while Jackie Chan was the surprise winner for Favorite Action Star. Adam Sandler received the prize for Favorite Comedic Star and his award sporting a black eye that he sustained playing a recreational basketball game.

Other four-time winners included the television series House, which won for  Favorite TV Drama, TV Drama Actor (Hugh Laurie), TV Drama Actress (Lisa Edelstein) and TV Doctor. Eminem was another fourfold winner with wins for Favorite Male Artist and Hip-Hop Artist to go with Favorite Song and Music Video prizes that he shared with Rihanna for their collaboration on "Love The Way You Lie".

Rihanna was also named Favorite Pop Artist.

It's quite clear that even though everyone loves to complain about the Oscars and industry awards shows, that they do a much better job at rewarding quality and artistic merit than popular opinion-based awards shows. Sadly, most of the winners on this night were B-list at best.
