What makes this award show so special is that the people have the power. The People’s Choice Award is voted on entirely by the public. The 2011 People’s Choice Awards were held Jan 5, at the Nokia Theater in LA. Hosted by Queen Latifah, the star studded show brought in stars like Taylor Swift, Zac Efron and Natalie Portman and others.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, House M.D. and Eminem cleaned house with four awards each. Fans picked Twilight as their favorite overall movie and favorite drama. Kristen Stewart also won favorite movie actress.
Johnny Depp won for best movie actor and made sure to say hi to Taylor Swift on behalf of his daughter. “My daughter said if I didn’t say hi to you I’d be in trouble, so hi from my daughter,” he said while onstage. The award for favorite country artist went to Taylor Swift. According to 2010 Music Industry Report, besides Lady Gaga and Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift was most played over the airwaves this year. This report was released by Nielsen SoundScan and Billboard on Wednesday.
