The first major award show of the year kicked off last night at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles with the People's Choice Awards.
Our own Dave Karger was one of the hosts for the red-carpet preshow (watch it here) of the event which lets fans vote for their favorites in film, television and music.
While the full list of winners can be seen here, we've put together the 15 best pics that recapture the essence of last night's event.
2 Broke Girls stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs shared hosting duties this year. Meanwhile, Adam Sandler was all smiles after winning Favorite Comedic Movie Actor. Here, he shares a laugh with multi-award winner Sandra Bullock.
The marketing push for That Awkward Moment is ramping up as Michael B. Jordan, Zac Efron and Miles Teller presented an award together. Teller joined Karger during the preshow to talk about the upcoming film. He shared a story about meeting John Cusack, telling the actor, "Hey, for the past four years, everybody's been telling me I remind them of you. What do you think of that?" Cusack responded, "I'm sorry to hear that. You're much more attractive and good luck."
Jessica Alba and Allison Williams were on hand to glam up the red carpet and present awards. Williams was also part of the nominated cast of Girls for Favorite Premium Cable TV Show. Homeland ended up taking home that award.
Two former Mouseketeers cleaned up at the PCAs. Justin Timberlake took home awards for Favorite Album, Favorite Male Singer and Favorite R&B Arist. Meanwhile, Britney Spears won her first (!) People's Choice Award for Favorite Pop Artist. She lost Favorite Female Artist to Demi Lovato.
Sandra Bullock posing with a bunch of awards... this could become a familiar scene over the next two months. The Gravity star took home PCAs for Favorite Movie Actress, Favorite Comedic Movie Actress and Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress. Next up for Bullock will be the Golden Globes this Sunday, where she and her sci-fi film have multiple nominations.
Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres continues to be an unstoppable force in the daytime TV landscape. DeGeneres took home her 14th consecutive PCA and took time to laugh it up with Blended star Drew Barrymore backstage.

All eyes were on The Vampire Diaries duo of Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. The two ended an off-set relationship last year, but ended up winning Favorite On-screen Chemistry award. Not allowing the awkwardness to overtake the moment, Somerhalder ended the brief acceptance speech with a kiss on the cheek. Somerhalder also won for Favorite Sci-fi/Fantasy TV Actor.
Jennifer Hudson and her sister Julia were honored for their humanitairan efforts. The award was presented by L.L. Cool J who described Hudson as "strong, resilent and beautiful."
