The leading winners at this year's People's Choice Awards were 'Finding Dory' for Favourite Movie (and Family Movie), Ryan Reynolds for Movie Actor and Jennifer Lawrence for Movie Actress. Reynolds saw more success when his movie 'Deadpool' landed the Action Movie prize, but it was Robert Downey Jr. and Margot Robbie who won the Action Movie Actor and Actress awards.

Finding Dory star Ellen Degeneres has spoken about the possibility that the animation includes Pixar’s first gay couple. DeGeneres admitted that she doesn't know herself if the characters in question are lesbians, but she welcomes the conversation about inclusion as a "a great thing."
Ellen DeGeneres has spoken about the rumours that Finding Dory includes a same-sex couple.
Speaking at a recent press conference in Beverly Hills DeGeneres said: "I personally think it's a great thing. I think everything that we see in the media – whether it's television or film or anything you see – should represent everything that's happening in the world.

Portia De Rossi , Ellen Degeneres - World premiere of Disney-Pixar's 'Finding Dory' at the El Capitan Theatre - Arrivals at El Capitan Theatre, Disney - Hollywood, California, United States - Wednesday 8th June 2016
Dory's past has always eluded her, she's a little forgetful fish whose bright character and warm heart make up for all the times she's got herself - and her friends - into trouble. Dory lives with Marlin and Nemo but now she wants to go out and find her real parents. Before she can begin her real adventure, Dory finds herself being scooped up and taken to a marine institute. Whilst in quarantine, Dory meets a whole host of new friends who instantly take to the little blue tang. Hank, the octopus, Bailey the white beluga whale and Destiny the whale shark are just a few creatures who will help her.
For Dory, her mission is quite clear, she must escape the confines of her new home and return to the ocean to find her family - whilst hopefully finding Marlin and Nemo once again too. Dory's new friends in the institute are eager to help Dory out however they can.
Finding Dory is the 2016 follow-up to the 2003 film Finding Nemo. Like the first film, it was written and directed by Andrew Stanton but this time directorial duties are in partnership with Angus MacLane.
More characters we can't wait to fall in love with.
'Finding Dory' is definitely on the way now, and with it a whole host of lovable new characters. It takes place just a year after the events of 'Finding Nemo', even if it's taken more than ten years for this sequel to finally arrive. We're sure it'll be worth the wait.
Squirt the little sea turtle
Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane, 'Finding Dory' is set to arrive on June 17th 2016. While it was disappointing to learn that we won't be hearing Michael Sheen's voice in the movie after all since he was edited out of the final cut, the new characters that did make it are still inescapably awesome.

What's behind her love of sharks and whales?
'Finding Dory' is the sequel every Disney fan has been waiting for since news that one might be made started circling. After 'Finding Nemo', it was the forgetful fish that everybody remembered (ironically) and so it's great to finally see her back story come to life - and you may notice that there are a few clues to her past in the original film.
Ellen Degeneres reprises her role as Dory in the upcoming sequel
The majority of memorable quotes from 'Finding Nemo' come from Ellen Degeneres' lovable Pacific regal blue tang fish. The reason why might be because there's always been an air of mystery about her; she acts in ways thought very unusual by other fish and never fails to confuse companion Marlin with her dangerous actions and unreliable nature.
