It's too bad Katy Perry decided to back out of the People's Choice Awards at the last minute, because she was the biggest winner of the night!
The "Teenage Dream" singer made the sudden decision not to appear in the wake of her recent divorce with Russell Brand, but she still won nods in five categories, including Favorite Female Artist, Tour Headliner, Song of the Year for "E.T." with Kanye West, Favorite Music Video for "Last Friday Night," and TV Guest Star for How I Met Your Mother. Impressive!
Following close behind Perry with four awards, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was honed with Favorite Movie, Favorite Action Movie, Book Adaptation and Ensemble Movie Cast. We're happy to see the last film in the Potter franchise go out with a bang!
Emma Stone took home Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Comedic Movie Actress, tying with Johnny Depp, who won Favorite Movie Actor and Favorite Movie Voice for Rango.
Glee superstar Lea Michele won Favorite Comedic TV Actress, which she dedicated to "All the Rachel Berrys out there." Ellen DeGeneres was honored for Favorite TV Host. Neil Patrick Harris won Favorite TV Comedic Actor, and thanked partner David Burtka and their twins in his speech, who he joked, "should be asleep in the limo at the valet."
Maya Rudolph took the stage with her fellow honorees as they sang a Wilson Philips song onstage after Bridesmaids won Favorite Comedy Movie, while Robert Pattinson (who sat next to Hot In Cleveland winner Betty White during the show!) was on hand to accept the Favorite Drama Movie award for Water for Elephants.
After performing onstage, Demi Lovato nabbed Favorite Pop Artist, while Lady Gaga was honored with Favorite Album of the Year, and Taylor Swift Favorite Country Artist, although neither showed up to collect their awards.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian proved people still can't get enough of her over-the-top drama -- honoring her with Favorite TV Celebrity Star of 2012.
