People’s Choice Awards 2016: Complete Winners List

Jane Lynch Peoples Choice - H

'Furious 7,' 'The Big Bang Theory,' Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy and Johnny Depp were all winners during the annual awards show, hosted by Jane Lynch, on Jan. 6.

Jane Lynch said it best: “We the entertainers have put our self-esteem in your hands. … Oh, God, what have we done?”

The People’s Choice Awards, hosted this year by Lynch, honor the year’s pop-culture favorites from movies, TV, music, gaming and social media.

Lynch, whose CBS comedy Angel from Hell debuts Thursday (Jan. 7), kicked off the awards show with a dance number parodying songs including “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” and Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance.”

Calling herself a “slightly more masculine Neil Patrick Harris,” Lynch followed up her song and dance with a monologue, calling out People’s Choice voters. “You’re the ones who watched a rat dragging a pizza down a flight of stairs 9 million times,” she said. “You’re the ones who made the man bun an OK thing for a dude to wear.”

Later in the show, Ellen DeGeneres received the People’s Choice Favorite Humanitarian Award, which gifts her with a $100,000 donation from Walgreens that she is passing on to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The award comes just days after DeGeneres' high-rated talk show was renewed through 2020.

Accepting the award from Melissa McCarthy, DeGeneres started her speech by asking, "Would I call myself the Mother Teresa of talk shows, the Dalai Lama of daytime? No. But I'm sure someone out there has." Adding that she certainly never "set out to receive any of the many, many, many, many awards I have received over the years." She said it's strange to get an award for being nice and kind, which she sees is "the point of being a human." 

Near the end of the night, the show had its own Kanye West-VMAs moment when an audience member jumped on stage and grabbed the mic from the co-hosts of The Talk, who were accepting their award for favorite daytime TV hosting team.

The People’s Choice Awards 2016 aired live, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, on CBS. The full winners list is below.
