Plot Synopsis

Since 1975, THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS have annually honored outstanding achievements in film, television and music by letting America vote for their favorites in multiple categories. The Awards relied on the results of Gallup Polls until 2005 when it switched to online voting, where it received a record 230,000,000+ votes on, the official People's Choice Awards Facebook app, and Twitter. For the 39th Annual Awards in 2013, Sandra Bullock was honored with the first-ever award for "Favorite Humanitarian" for her generous philanthropic efforts throughout her career, specifically her ongoing commitment to Warren Easton High School in New Orleans following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Subsequent winners of the Humanitarian Award include Jennifer Hudson (2014), Ben Affleck (2015), Ellen DeGeneres (2016), and Tyler Perry (2017).
E!
