Show is described as a celebration and recognition of the year’s most influential and talked-about people in pop culture, celebrity and Hollywood that have fueled the country’s conversations.
The newly-created awards include Biggest Phenomenon of 2014, year’s Most Popular Person, the Most Stylish Person, Funniest Person, Sexiest Woman of 2014 and more. Viewers across the country will also have an opportunity to participate in a fan-voted award.
“There is no better barometer of the cultural events and top personalities of the world than People magazine,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “This awards show will bring to light all who have broken through the clutter to make their voices heard throughout the year.”
Just last week, NBC announced it was reviving the American Comedy Awards, which last aired 13 years ago.
