‘Sith’ sits well with People

Depp, DeGeneres, Garner all nab awards

See Winners

The force was with “Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith,” which was named favorite movie and favorite movie drama at Tuesday night’s 32nd annual People’s Choice Awards.

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and TV star Jennifer Garner also won multiple awards. Garner, of TV’s “Alias” and the action movie “Elektra,” got the nod for female action star and female TV star.

DeGeneres was honored as favorite daytime talk show host and funny female star, the same awards she took home last year.

Johnny Depp again was named favorite male movie star, although Sandra Bullock took female honors over Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman. Last year’s winner, Julia Roberts, wasn’t in the running.

Brad Pitt returned as favorite leading man.

On TV, the favorites included “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “American Idol” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” — all repeats.

“My Name is Earl” was named favorite new TV comedy and “Prison Break” won for favorite new TV drama after votes cast over the Internet during the live telecast were counted.

The People’s Choice Awards were presented at the Shrine Auditorium and broadcast live on CBS.

The nominations were determined by editors at Entertainment Weekly, the People’s Choice production team and a panel of pop culture fans. Winners were determined by Internet voting.
