People's Choice Awards 2012: The Winners And Losers On A Star Studded Night


The 2012 People's Choice Awards were held last night (Wednesday 11th January, 2012) at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The biggest winner was undoubtedly Katy Perry, who took home five awards, after being nominated for seven. Perry, who won Favourite TV Guest Star, Favourite Song of the Year, Favourite Music Video, Favourite Tour Headliner and Favourite Female Artist was not in attendance following her split from Russell Brand.

Chloe Moretz, star of Hugo, won the award for Favourite Movie Star Under 25, beating Harry Potter actors Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint in the process. The stars of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows had no cause for disappointment, though, as the film won Favourite Movie, Favourite Action Movie, Favourite Book Adaptation and Favourite Ensemble Movie Cast. The series How I Met Your Mother also triumphed in three categories. Bridesmaids triumphed as Favourite Comedy Movie, whilst Water For Elephants was the most popular drama. Emma Stone took home two awards: Favourite Movie Actress and Favourite Comedic Movie Actress, while Johnny Depp matched that, with favourite Movie Actor and Favourite Animated Movie Voice.

Ellen Degeneres and Jimmy Fallon were both honoured for their TV hosting talents and American Idol topped the poll as the nation's Favourite Competition Show - a bitter blow for X Factor creator Simon Cowell. Bruno Mars was voted Favourite Male Artist in the Music categories, with Katy Perry as his female counterpart for that award. Maroon 5 capitalised on the global success of 'Moves Like Jagger' by picking up the Favourite Band gong, while Rihanna was Favourite R&B artist. Demi Lovato performed 'Give Your Heart A Break' live on the televised show and celebrated winning the Favourite Pop Artist category. Also performing on the show was Faith Hill, who gave a stirring rendition of new single 'Come Home'. She wasn't nominated for any awards this year though and the Favourite Country Artist honour went to Taylor Swift. Beyonce was nominated in three categories but failed to take any awards home. However, with news of the birth of her first child currently in the headlines, it is unlikely that she would have been able to attend the ceremony to collect them anyway. Similarly, Adele, who seems to have a huge raft of awards nominations under her belt after the release of 21 last year, was nominated for four awards but was victorious in none. She will, no doubt be looking to the Grammy's next month for more success.

Many of the articles I read have the British spelling of many words. Have I missed something or do we outsource reading material too?
