Now that we're knee-deep in January and The Golden Globes are less than a week away, Awards Season is officially upon us. The People's Choice Awards, in which the best in television, movies, and music are honored by fans who vote online, was held Wednesday night at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre, hosted by The Big Bang Theory's Haley Cuoco, who got some early help from Betty White and Neil Patrick Harris.

More than 230 million voters chimed in on who would walk away with the teardrop-shaped trophy — a record breaking number. First lesson of the evening: People love Emma Stone. She was the first to be honored in the "Favorite Movie Actress" category, while Johnny Depp was later bestowed with the male equivalent award. In comedies, Bridesmaids nabbed "Favorite Comedy Movie," while Adam Sandler took away "Favorite Comedic Movie Actor," and Stone again won "Favorite Comedy Movie Actress."

In television, Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon won for daytime and late night TV hosts, respectively, and Neil Patrick Harris and Lea Michele took away the coveted "Favorite TV Comedy Actor / Actress" trophies. The CBS hit that has been around for seven seasons, How I Met Your Mother, was honored with "Favorite Network TV Comedy," and one surprise of the evening went to the Whitney Cummings-created 2 Broke Girls for "Favorite New TV Comedy."

And don't forget about those offbeat categories like "Favorite Action Movie" (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 … ?), "Favorite Action Movie Star" (Hugh Jackman) "Favorite TV Competition Show" (American Idol), "Favorite Sci-Fi / Fantasy Show" (Supernatural), and "Favorite Movie Superhero" (Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern). Perhaps the oddest honors bestowed were for "Favorite Tour Headliner" and "Favorite TV Guest Star," both taken by pop singer Katy Perry (the latter for How I Met Your Mother), along with "Favorite Female Artist," "Favorite Music Video," and "Favorite Song of the Year." Unfortunately the beloved star tweeted the day before the ceremony that she would not be able to attend, for reasons she did not disclose.
