  • This year is the 46th edition of the People's Choice Awards. They were held for the first time in March 1975.
  • It's an award that honors audience's favorite movie, TV and music stars.
  • The Icon awards are given each year to highlight certain entertainment figures for their talent or for their social role during the year.
