DeGeneres Collects 14th People’s Choice Award
The fans made their top picks in television, music and film at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards and deemed Ellen DeGeneres their favorite daytime TV host, making her the woman with the most People’s Choice honors - a total of 14 trophies.
"As a young girl growing up in New Orleans, if anyone would have told me I was going to win 14 People’s Choice Awards, I ... I mean 12, yes. Thirteen? Maybe. But 14?" joked DeGeneres, who said she wanted to make "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" the show for everyone - old, young, black, white, gay or straight.
"As a matter of fact, just yesterday I was talking to this lovely African-American woman and she told me she was single and she works 80 hours a week to get by and she looked forward to coming home every night and watching me, and that woman’s name is Oprah Winfrey. I think I am doing something right."
The show kicked off Wednesday night with Sandra Bullock receiving the award for favorite movie actress.
Presented the award by fellow actor Sean Hayes, Bullock said, "I know this looks like I spent lonely Friday nights just voting for myself, but I didn’t. An actor can’t do what they do without hundreds of amazing people working for them, with them, alongside them." She went on to thank her "The Heat" co-star, Melissa McCarthy, the crew of her hit space film "Gravity" and her son, Louis.
"The Heat" was chosen as favorite comedic movie.
Justin Timberlake picked up an award for favorite album, "The 20/20 Experience." He thanked his "beautiful wife," Jessica Biel, "for teaching me patience and the little things like just putting the dishes in the dishwasher. It goes a long way. Fellas, you’re welcome."
