Sandra Bullock stooped to conquer at the People's Choice Awards. The 49-year-old actress walked away with four trophies as the evening's top winner.

She was named favourite movie actress, comedic actress, dramatic actress and shared the favourite movie duo award with 'Gravity' co-star George Clooney. Bullock's buddy comedy, 'The Heat', co-starring Melissa McCarthy, was awarded favourite comedic movie.

Fans deemed Ellen DeGeneres their favourite daytime TV host, making her the woman who has gained the most People's Choice Awards with a total of 14 trophies.

"As a young girl growing up in New Orleans, if anyone would have told me I was going to win 14 People's Choice Awards I...I mean 12, yes. 13, maybe. But 14?" joked DeGeneres, host of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', who said that she wanted to make the show for everyone from old, young, black, white, gay and straight.

'Iron Man 3' scored three awards including favourite movie, action movie and the film's star, Robert Downey Jr received the favourite action movie star honour.

Justin Timberlake also nabbed three awards. Among them was the favourite album accolade for 'The 20/20 Experience'. In a sweet moment, he thanked his "beautiful wife," Jessica Biel, "for teaching me patience and the little things like just putting the dishes in the dishwasher. It goes a long way. Fellas, you're welcome."

Katy Perry, who was not at the show, scored the win for favourite video for the third year in a row, following up on last year's award for 'Part of Me' and 2012's honour for 'Last Friday Night' with her hit 'Roar' this year.

A pregnant Drew Barrymore, who joked that DeGeneres had called her fat backstage, presented her 'Blended' co-star Adam Sandler with the comedic movie actor award. Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, the stars of 'The Vampire Diaries', earned the award for best on-screen chemistry. The duo, who had their round of break-ups and make-ups, on-screen and off, joked about their coupledom.

"The good thing is chemistry," said Dobrev, with her arm around Somerhalder, who she is no long romantically attached to. They managed to make a would-be awkward moment entertaining by addressing their buzz-worthy pairing head-on.

Shemar Moore heavily hit on fellow presenter Malin Akerman, cracking jokes about ebony and ivory and saying he didn't see a ring on her finger. She played right along, leaning in as the crowd cheered them on.
