People’s Choice Awards 2016: Priyanka Chopra, Sasha Alexander, Taylor Kinney among winners


While we know many eyes have already been cast in the direction of the Golden Globes coming to NBC on Sunday night, the first awards show of the season aired in the form of the People’s Choice Awards on CBS Wednesday night. This was a chance for the voters to have their say, and to recognize some people and shows that do not always get the love they deserve.

We’re not going to focus much on the non-TV winners here, mostly because that is not the purpose of this site! Instead, check back to this article over the course of the night for the latest winners from our medium of choice.
