People's Choice, the original metric of pop culture, is dedicated to providing entertainment fans with a platform to express their opinions. The annual People's Choice Awards live telecast gives fans a chance to honor their favorite entertainers, while the People's Choice official website, PeoplesChoice.com, lets enthusiasts voice their choices year round through polls and editorial features.
People's Choice Awards celebrates fan favorites in movies, music and television and is the only major awards show where real people - not industry insiders - determine the nominees and winners, setting it apart from other awards shows.
In the age of American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and countless other franchises where the fans decide the outcome, People's Choice was ahead of its time.
For the past 40 years, many of Hollywood's most popular actors, musicians, television shows and movies have been named People's Choice Award winners by their fans. The event began in 1975 with 14 categories; winners included Mary Tyler Moore, Barbra Streisand and The Sting. In 2013, there were over 40 categories, honoring Katy Perry, Robert Downey, Jr. and The Hunger Games.
