The people have spoken, and the people love Ellen DeGeneres!
The beloved actress and talk show host took home three People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday, January 18 and that brought her up to a whopping 20 People’s Choice Awards wins!
The big moment at the Microsoft Theater for the night’s festivities included a montage of her previous wins including a parade of men all holding her 20 trophies while presenter Justin Timberlake called her “one of the best people on this planet.”
The night’s wins for DeGeneres included Favorite Daytime TV Host, Favorite Comedic Collaboration, and Favorite Animated Movie Voice.
DeGeneres then made a classic heart-warming and hilarious speech, stating, “This is amazing. Seventeen, I get it. Eighteen, sure. Nineteen, I can see that. But 20 is outrageous. This is really something that means more to me… because it comes from the people… I say thank you, people, and the only thing in the world that would make me happier is if it was voted on by animals.”
