Dwayne Johnson has done it again! The actor is officially this year’s Favorite Premium Series Actor for the second year in a row!

The Ballers star took a moment to dish out a slew of high fives to the fans in the audience before officially taking the stage at Peoples Choice Awards 2017 to accept his award.

“Thank you to the people, thank you guys so much. Thank you to the fans. I appreciate it guys,” said Johnson, who also went on to say that he appreciates winning an award for playing a character that’s so near and dear to his heart.

Before stepping off the stage, Johnson also left everyone watching with some beautiful words of wisdom.

“I promised someone I’d say this — it’s such an honor to entertain for you guys,” said Johnson. “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”

Johnson’s win this year marks the actor’s fourth nomination and second win at People’s Choice Awards. As for Ballers, fans of the hit sports dramedy will have to wait until June to get their fix of Johnson’s Spencer Strasmore.

The good news is, we’ll be seeing a lot of Johnson as the year goes on. This year, the actor is also set to star in a slew of highly anticipated films including Fast & Furious 8, Baywatch, and Jumanji.
