A pandemic didn’t stop Hollywood from honoring this year’s heroes and icons. The People’s Choice Awards were held on Sunday, November 15th. They were hosted by Demi Lovato and had a virtual audience in attendance.
The show took safety precautions with only having one person on stage at a time, the awards were on a table instead of being handed to them, and if there was more than one person, they stood six feet apart.
This show was a great, heart-warming break from everything going on in the world. There were performances, speeches, tears, and laughs.
Here are just some of the best moments from the People’s Choice Awards.
Tiffany Haddish made us all laugh
Before the show, the red carpet is always a highlight of the night. Tiffany Haddish brought some laughs to the carpet. When reporter Giuliana Rancic asked the actress how she was doing she replied with, “Successful. How are You?” which is in typical Tiffany fashion.
She took home the award for Movie Actress of 2020 for “Like a Boss.”
Sofia Vergara says goodbye to ‘Modern Family’
The actress won her last award for Comedy Star of 2020 for “Modern Family.” The series ended this year and Sofia made sure to thank all of her cast and crew of her show. She looked beautiful in her lacey dress and encouraged everyone, “even though it sucks” to wear a mask.
Vergara, like most of us, had to add that she misses Ed O’Neill. Sofia was also up for the Female TV Star of 2020 but lost that to Ellen Pompeo.
Ellen takes home another award
Ellen DeGeneres has won every PCA she has been nominated for, except for two, and tonight was no different. She took home The Daytime Talk Show Host of 2020. Ellen thanked the staff and crew on her show for making all of it possible.
The talk show host has received backlash this year after there was some drama on the set with unfair treatment to staff and guests.
Jimmy Fallon’s microphone is muted
You can always count on Jimmy Fallon to bring the laughs. That’s why he won for Nighttime Talk show of 2020. But there was a snag. Jimmy’s Zoom microphone was “muted” while he was making his acceptance speech and the cast of the “Saved By The Bell” reunion tried to warn him.
However, when he realized the show cut him off on purpose, which caused the audience to laugh once again at the talk show host.
Jennifer Lopez wins the People’s Icon of 2020
JLo can do it all – act, sing, dance, inspire, and win. She took home one of the biggest awards of the night – The People’s Icon. Many of her celebrity friends, and her kids, sent in video messages congratulating her on a successful year (“Hustlers,” Super Bowl Halftime, etc.) and career.
Jennifer thanked the fans and encouraged girls of any age to live their dreams and still be kind and give back.
She is truly an icon.
