Excitement, entertainment, emotion- the 45th E! People’s Choice Awards was all this and so much more! Like every year, A-list movie stars, musicians, and TV personalities got votes from the general public on the basis of which the most deserving and much-loved fan-favourites took home the prestigious awards in their respective categories.
And like always, the event registered the presence of many renowned celebs like Robert Downey Jr., Zendays, Jennifer Aniston, Pink, Kevin Hart, etc. But as ardent followers of the star-studded event must know- People’s Choice Awards is not merely a gathering of stars under one roof but the recognition of their contribution to the industry and the place they hold in the hearts of millions around the globe.
While the People’s Choice Awards is, and will be, an unforgettable event, we have selected a few memorable moments from the special evening for you to relive (the entire list of winners can be found at the end of the article):
Pink urges people to “Change the F***ing World!”
Honoured Pink with the People’s Champion Award, the singer and activist urged people to fight for “decency and humanity and kindness.”
“I know that one person can make a difference. You feel like you don’t matter, that your life doesn’t matter? Get involved,” Pink said on stage. “You can’t tell me Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela, Gloria Steinem, Anita Hill, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Malala Yousafzai, Greta Thunberg — tell me one person can’t make a difference.”
Jennifer Aniston pays tribute to her longest-running series “Friends”
Holding the People’s Icon Award, fans beloved Rachel Green, remembered her long-running sitcom Friends and credited it for giving her the stardom she has today.
“If I have any claim to this word ‘icon’ it’s only because I was able to be on an iconic show with an iconic cast and an iconic haircut,” Aniston said. “I mean, Friends was truly the gift of a lifetime, and I would not be standing up here without that amazing show and those amazing five other actors and with an audience who stuck with us for a decade, and through streaming services now, and syndication, and I’m sure coming to a ‘watch soon’ near you or something.”
Marvel Studios’ films take home the biggest haul
While fans all over the globe were incensed over Italian filmmaker, Martin Scorsese’s comments calling Marvel films ‘not cinema’, the People’s Choice Awards came as a major relief as Avengers: Endgame is officially People’s Choice Awards’ best film of the year. The film also won Best Action Movie of 2019 as well as Robert Downey won the Male Movie Star of 2019 award.
Spider-Man: Far From Home’s Tom Holland won best Action Movie Star of 2019 and Zendaya was voted best Female Movie Star of 2019.
“Keeping Up With The Kardashians” wins in two categories but Khloe Kardashian ignoring the win takes the limelight
While “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” won the award for the best reality show, Khloe Kardashian got the award for the Best Reality Star 2019. But when Kim, Kourtney and their mom, Kris Jenner came on stage to accept the award, fans were surprised by Khloe’s silence as she merely stood behind her sisters and smiled.
She later tweeted to apologize to her fans and explain the situation.
