The 42nd People’s Choice Awards: All You Need to Know
The People’s Choice Awards 2017 was nothing like the usual award shows. There was more to it than the glamorous celebrity looks and the usual gossip. While some made history, others were overwhelmed by the love that the masses had given them. Here’s what you need to know for a digest of this year’s People’s Choice Awards:
Ellen DeGeneres made history
Ellen DeGeneres picked three awards this year and reached a total of twenty, thus making a record of having won the most People’s Choice Awards ever. She won in the categories of Favorite animated voice in Finding Dory, Comedic Collaboration in Mall Mischief and for her talk show.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds picked one award each
Blake Lively picked an Award for Favorite Dramatic Actress while husband Ryan Reynolds won the Favorite Movie Actor Award. The Gossip Girl star came to the stage all shimmying in her Elie Saab dress and credited her husband for his support.
An overwhelming speech by Johnny Depp
Another iconic moment at the ceremony was when Jhonny Depp got emotional while picking his award for the Favorite Movie Icon. After having a rough year after allegations of domestic abuse and a rather rough split from wife Amber Heard, Depp said in his emotional speech that he was glad that his fans believed in him through thick and thin.
Fifth Harmony’s first Foursome Debut
The ‘Worth It’ girls made the night totally worth it with their first performance as a quartet after band member Camila Cabello quit. Dressed in blush pink satin dresses, they won the award for Favorite Group.
Justin Timberlake picks two awards
After handing over Ellen DeGeneres her awards, Justin Timberlake picked two awards himself for the Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Song category. Dressed casually for the night, Timberlake kept his speech short and straightforward.
Ruby Rose and Priyanka Chopra take the Best Dressed titles
Ruby Rose’s fierce and poignant look at the People’s Choice Award is surely going to be much talked about in days to follow. The red Veronica Beard suit and black lipstick were complimented well by her minimally done hair. Priyanka Chopra wore a peach Sally LaPointe for the night, almost making it feel like summer again.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart made the night memorable
The Central Intelligence co-stars and the favorite duo picked one award each at the 42nd People’s Choice Award. Dwayne Johnson won the award for Favorite Premium Series Actor while Kevin Hart picked it for Favorite Comedic Movie Actor. In his light-hearted and entertaining speech, he thanked all his co-stars and took a dig at Johnson, saying he had made him a less talented person.
