The winners have been announced for the 36th Annual People’s Choice Awards, and the results weren’t that surprising. The most popular shows, movies and actors dominated the night including The Twilight Saga, Sandra Bullock and Johnny Depp for film, while “House” and “The Big Bang Theory” took home top honors in television.

The amount of Twilight love that was given out during the show was unnerving. For a moment there the People’s Choice Awards looked like they were produced by MTV, and we all know how MTV loves their vampires and werewolves.

Check out the rest of the night’s big winners…

Be prepared to be shocked by the amount of undeserving wins at this year’s show. Some of the actors and films that took home awards make you want to do a double take at the nominations list. Unfortunately, like most ceremony’s the People’s Choice Awards are a popularity contest, but of the worst kind. There’s no stipulations. Anyone can go online and vote, and when you give that kind of power crazy things happen, like this year’s winners…


Favorite Movie Actor

  • Johnny Depp

Favorite Movie Actress

  • Sandra Bullock

Favorite Action Star

Favorite Comedic Star

Someone out in the universe actually thought Yes, Man was funny? Giving Jim Carrey an award for comedy these days is a throwback to his early career. It’s no longer relevant. Sandra Bullock on the other hand has been on a roll this past year so her win is no surprise. But why did Hugh Jackman win for Wolverine? I thought we all hated that movie?! Stop encouraging Fox dammit!

Favorite Breakout Movie Actress

Favorite Breakout Movie Actor

Favorite On-Screen Team

All three of these winners were solely chosen by 12 – 15 year olds. Who else has the time to go online and vote for the best actors and movies besides teenagers? The rest of us have jobs, and bills to pay. It’s laughable that Miley Cyrus beat out Anna Kendrick in her category, and it’s even more surprising that Taylor Lautner won over someone as talented as Joseph Gordon-Levitt or as charismatic as Chris Pine.

How the hell did The Proposal beat out The Hangover for Best Comedy Movie? I’ll admit that The Proposal isn’t as bad as some people make it out to be, but there’s much to be desired. It’s in no shape or form funnier than The Hangover. Also, Twilight once again raped the competition by being named the best movie and franchise beating out Harry Potter and Star Trek. How is that right?

Favorite Web Celeb

Isn’t it telling when Ashton Kutcher wins an award in the miscellaneous category, and it’s for being a web celebrity? Remember when he used to actually do film and television work? As for the rest of the television categories, “True Blood” is deserving of its award through and through. That show’s like a disease, a welcomed disease that you don’t want to find the cure for.

And how many shows will honor Hugh Laurie as the Best Dramatic Actor for his work on “House,” before the Emmys take notice? Are they trying to pull the same garbage they did with Keifer Sutherland and make him wait it out? Take a hint Emmys, the people have spoken!

What do you think about this year’s People’s Choice winners? What were the biggest disappointments? What surprised you?
