Katy Perry - Absent Katy Perry Wins Big At People's Choice Awards
It was a huge night for Katy Perry at the People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday (11Jan12) even though the pop star's marriage break-up prevented her from attending.
The I Kissed a Girl star pulled out of the event earlier this week (09Jan12) via a tweet but it was still very much her night as she picked up five awards, including one for her guest spot on TV comedy How I Met Your Mother.
Perry also claimed trophies for Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Song of the Year (E.T.), Favorite Music Video (Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)) and Favorite Tour Headliner.
It was also a great evening for the cast of the final Harry Potter movie, The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 - the film picked up awards for Favorite Movie, Favorite Action Movie, Favorite Book Adaptation and Favorite Movie Ensemble Cast.
TV hit How I Met Your Mother was a triple winner at the Nokia Theater ceremony - as well as Perry's guest role prize, the show landed the night's Favorite Network TV Comedy honour and Neil Patrick Harris took home the Favorite TV Comedy Actor award.
Johnny Depp and Emma Stone were among the double winners - he was named Favorite Movie Actor and Favorite Animated Voice for his role in Rango, while she picked up the Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Comedic Movie Actress awards.
Meanwhile, Morgan Freeman beat out Harrison Ford, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford and Robert De Niro to be named the People's Choice Awards' first Movie Icon and Betty White celebrated her 90th birthday a week early - she was given a standing ovation as she accepted the Favorite Cable TV Comedy award for her sitcom Hot in Cleveland.
