People’s Choice Awards 2017 crowned some pretty big winners on Wednesday night (Jan. 18), but only one nominee can say they’re officially the most decorated winner in People’s Choice Awards history.
So who’s the individual that holds the impressive title? Why it’s none other than everyone’s favorite daytime talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres!
DeGeneres made history on Wednesday (Jan. 18) when she became the most decorated People’s Choice Awards winner ever, thanks largely in part to her multiple wins throughout the night! The Finding Dory star walked away with three big wins, including Favorite Daytime TV Host, Favorite Animated Movie Voice, and Favorite Comedic Collaboration for her hilarious visit to the mall with none other than Britney Spears. DeGeneres’ three wins brings her to a grand total of an incredibly impressive 20 People’s Choice Awards overall!
DeGeneres’ pal Justin Timberlake was on hand to help celebrate the talk show host’s 20th win and even had some help when it came to bringing all 20 of DeGeneres’ trophies that she’s won over the years.
After, DeGeneres took the stage to thank the fans for their continued support over the years.
“20 is outrageous— this is really something that means more to me because it comes from the people,” said DeGeneres. “You are the people who are responsible for me being up here so I say thank you people,”
While officially holding the title for most decorated People’s Choice Awards winner means a lot to DeGeneres, the talk show host teased just before she wrapped her speech up that there’s one thing that could have brought her even more joy.
“The only thing that would make me happier is if it was voted on by animals because I love them,” joked DeGeneres.
Given DeGeneres’ comedic timing and her dedication to making the world a better place, it’s not surprising to hear that the fans came out in droves to help ensure the talk show host walked away with multiple wins this year.
Congratulations on officially being the most decorated People’s Choice Awards winner of all time, Ellen! We’re already looking forward to tuning in to next year’s awards to see if you’re able to defend the title!
