2011 People's Choice Awards Winners

As long as Summit continues to make Twilight movies, we should expect said movies to dominate the People's Choice Awards. This year's ceremony – which aired on CBS last night and featured most of Hollywood's biggest fan favorites – could've been called from outset, with The Twilight Saga: Eclipse taking home two major awards, while Kristen Stewart wrangled up one of her own. Would Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner go home with empty pockets? And what about Captain Jack himself, Johnny Depp?
First off, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse won Favorite Movie Drama, as well as Favorite Movie. Kristen Stewart added a Favorite Movie Actress to that pile, though Pattinson and Lautner came up empty when Johnny Depp swiped the Favorite Movie Actor all for himself. Other awards went to the film Grown Ups, which took home Favorite Comedy Movie, with that film's star, Adam Sandler, still coughing up enough laughs to earn him the Favorite Comedic Star award. Meanwhile, Zac Efron, who starred in the little seen indie Charlie St. Cloud in 2010 and nothing else – walked away with the Favorite Movie Star Under 25 award.
Two more years of Twilight films (Breaking Dawn parts 1 and 2) should keep that film at the top of the pack, though with 2011 packed full of fan favorites like Pirates of the Caribbean, Transformers, and the final Harry Potter movie, we expect the competition to be a bit tougher this time next year.
