The 37th People’s Choice Awards, honoring the best in popular culture for 2010, were held on January 5, 2011 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California, and were broadcast live on CBS. The show has been held annually since 1975 and is voted on by the general public. Queen Latifah was the host for the fifth consecutive year.
Voting began in October to see who would receive a coveted People’s Choice nod in 2011, and continued until November 9, 2010 – when official nominees were announced in some 40 categories – including Favorite Country Artist, Favorite Action Movie and Favorite TV Comedy.
The winners for the 2011 People’s Choice Awards have been revealed and the movie that made it big was the beloved The Twilight Saga: Eclipse starring teenage sweethearts Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. It was the best movie of 2011 amongst the three awards (Drama Movie, Best Movie and Onscreen team) it won. While Kristen Stewart (Favorite Movie Actress ) won over Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp (Male Movie Star for the fifth time) was one of the People’s Choice Awards winners as well. It was the Twilight Saga star first time at the People’s Choice Awards and it was clear K-Stew was uncomfortable on stage.
