The 40th edition of People's Choice Awards kicked off tonight, Jan 8, and as it happens "Gravity" star Sandra Bullock was awarded the honour for "Favorite Movie Actress" beating out nominees such as Melissa McCarthy, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Scarlett Johansson.

The star-studded event started with hilarious style where "2 Broke Girls" stars Kat Dennigs and Beth Behrs turned on their pre-recorded skit from their hit TV show, where the first joke of the night came from Kat's ample cleavage as she calls it her "Golden Globes."
"The Voice" coach Christina Aquilera stole the show when she appeared dressed as a busty waitress as she fills in the girls' role in their show and points to her cleavage saying: "Don't worry ladies, I get a lot of tips."
The first award was announced by "Will and Grace" star Sean Hayes and jokingly referring Sandra as his "wife." Taking to the stage, Sandra fired back and said, "I'd like to thank my husband Sean, for being there night and day, night and day."
"It looks like I spent Friday nights staying home and voting for myself," she quipped.
While on stage, Bullock thanked her "The Heat" co-star Melissa McCarthy, saying, "An actor can't do what they do without people working, for them, beside them with them."
Jessica Alba was the next star to take center stage and gave out the gong for Favorite Album, which went to Justin Timberlake. The former N'Sync singer jokingly wrestled with Ellen DeGeneres before making it to the stage and thanked her as he was presented with the award.
"I would like to thank Ellen for all the personal inspiration," says Justin as he begins his speech. He received the award for his "The 20/20 Experience" album. Ellen took the stage after Timberlake when she accepted her 14th People's Choice Award for Favorite TV Host.
Awards that were announced during the pre-show included Cable TV Actress that goes to Lucy Hale, Sci-fi/Fantasy TV Actor goes to "Vampire Diaries'" star Ian Somerhalder and Best Streaming Series, "Orange Is the New Black."
