Event was hosted by Queen Latifah
The movie swashbuckler “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” and its stars Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley led winners during Tuesday night’s 33rd annual People’s Choice Awards.
Jennifer Aniston, Ellen DeGeneres, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Nickelback, Justin Timberlake, Eva Longoria and Patrick Dempsey were also favorites.
“If it wasn’t for the people, I’d never win an award,” Longoria said, laughing as she accepted her award for female television star.
The movies “Click” and “Cars” were also winners.
Depp, appearing by satellite from London, said he was humbled by the honor.
“I know that I’ve said this before. But the fact that this award comes from the people makes it all the more special,” he said. “And thanks for keeping me employed, yeah? You’re the boss.”
The CBS-TV show from the Shrine Auditorium was hosted by Queen Latifah. Winners were picked by public Internet balloting. The Favorite New TV Comedy and Favorite New TV Drama categories were open for online voting through the first hour of the broadcast.
