LOS ANGELES -- Fans got their say Wednesday at the 39th annual People's Choice Awards, as their favorites from film, TV and music were honored at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live.
Kaley Cuoco of CBS' The Big Bang Theory, a comedic TV actress nominee, returned to host the event, which presents awards based on online fan voting. More than 475 million votes were cast this year, a record-breaking number. A big favorite was The Hunger Games, which took prizes for movie, action movie, movie franchise and on-screen chemistry. One of its stars, Jennifer Lawrence, won for favorite movie actress and favorite face of heroism.
"In many ways, this is more pressure," said Glee's Chris Colfer, favorite comedic TV actor. "These are the people (the fans) who keep you employed." And Colfer said he wants to keep his fans happy: "I don't want to disappoint anyone."
