Proud Of Harry Potter
January 15, 2012 by staff
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ — the last instalment of the hit movie franchise about the British boy wizard — won four awards, including best movie and favourite ensemble cast.
Perry won five trophies, including best female music artist, favourite song for “E.T.” and favourite tour headliner. But the perky “Firework” pop star pulled out of Wednesday’s live TV ceremony at short notice, following her split with British comedian Russell Brand two weeks ago after 14 months of marriage.
The People’s Choice is the earliest of Hollywood’s glittering annual awards shows. But unlike the Oscars or the Golden Globes, the People’s Choice winners are determined by fans and provide few insights to the likely winners of the movie industry’s highest honours in February.
The “Harry Potter” stars did not make the trip from Britain to the awards show in Los Angeles so none of their wins were announced on the two-hour televised ceremony.
Female romp “Bridesmaids” won best comedy movie and Johnny Depp picked up the best actor award.
Emma Stone, 23, took the trophies for both movie actress and favourite comedy actress for her roles in civil rights era film “The Help” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”
“I moved to LA eight years ago this week with my mom and it is so insane to be standing up here right now,” Stone told the audience.
Former Disney Channel star Demi Lovato, 19, was voted favourite pop artist following her return to showbusiness after an emotional breakdown in late 2010, beating the likes of Lady Gaga and Beyonce. Maroon 5 won best band.
Television honours included “Glee” star Lea Michele and Neil Patrick Harris for “How I Met Your Mother,” which also won favourite TV comedy show. “Two Broke Girls” was voted best new TV comedy.
Adam Sandler won best movie comedy actor and “Water for Elephants,” starring “Twilight” heartthrob Robert Pattinson, won best movie drama.
Sandler beat perennial favourites like Steve Carell and Bradley Cooper. Both Sandler’s movies this year — “Jack and Jill” and “Just Go With It” — were mauled by critics but as Sandler noted while accepting his trophy, “You the people seem to enjoy” them.
