People's Choice Awards quietly given out

The stars of Grey's Anatomy and Pirates of the Caribbean were among the fan favourites at the 34th annual People's Choice Awards on Tuesday, as CBS scrapped its usual live broadcast of the show for a strike-friendly, pre-taped program. The People's Choice Awards announced last month it would replace its traditional live show with "a new format" that had its crews deliver trophies to music, film and television stars on location. Other winners in categories that spanned from television to movies to music included Katherine Heigl of "Grey's" as favourite female TV star, "Dancing With the Stars" as favourite reality show, Ellen DeGeneres as favourite talk show host and Justin Timberlake as favourite male singer. Top movie winners included Johnny Depp and Reese Witherspoon as favorite male and female movie star, respectively, and Justin Timberlake was voted favorite male singer.
