The People’s Choice Awards of 2019 took place Sunday, November 10, in Santa Monica, California. Some of the biggest celebrities from TV, movies, social media, and music took home trophies. 

During the voting period this year over one billion fans took part in voting for their favorite celebrities. Some winners consisted of Cole Sprouse from the TV show Riverdale and Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things. Sprouse was voted the male TV star of 2019 and Brown was female TV star of 2019. The show Stranger Things also got some recognition as it was named the show of 2019. 

When it comes to music, Shawn Mendes and Billie Eilish took home the wins for male and female artist of 2019. Shawn also won song of 2019 for his song “Senorita” featuring Camila Cabello. In the end, Taylor Swift’s album Lover won the category album of 2019, with tough competition like Ariana Grande, Khalid, and Ed Sheeran. 

As for the big screen, Avengers: Endgame was chosen as the movie of 2019. The next category up is pop culture. 

The nominees for social star of 2019 consisted of Emma Chamberlain, The Dolan Twins, Rickey Thompson, The Ace Family, Shane Dawson, Liza Koshy, Tana Mongeau, and David Dobrik. While these are all popular candidates, David Dobrik came out on top. 

This year Jennifer Aniston was also honored with The People’s Icon of 2019 Award for her iconic and numerous roles she has played throughout the years. 

While your favorite star, movie, show or song may not have won, I’d say all the wins were well deserved and the show was very entertaining.
