Actress Sandra Bullock and pop superstar Justin Timberlake were the toast of the 2014 People Choice Awards after each taking home a handful of top honours. The Hollywood beauty claimed the first three prizes of Wednesday's (08Jan14) ceremony as she picked up the title for Favorite Movie Actress and was handed trophies for Favorite Comedic and Dramatic Movie Actress, too.
Her space disaster film, Gravity, was also named Favorite Dramatic Movie and her onscreen work with George Clooney landed her the Favorite Movie Duo award.
Timberlake was a triple threat at the Los Angeles ceremony, claiming Favorite Male Artist, R&B Artist and Favorite Album for The 20/20 Experience.
Robert Downey, Jr. was another big winner - he walked away as the Favorite Action Movie Star, while his superhero blockbuster Iron Man 3 was named Favorite Movie and Favorite Action Movie.
Newlywed Kaley Cuoco was given another couple of reasons to celebrate - she was handed the Favorite Comedic TV Actress honour for The Big Bang Theory, while the sitcom was also the winner of the Favorite Network TV Comedy category.
As she accepted her acting accolade, Cuoco, who wed tennis player Ryan Sweeting on New Year's Eve (31Dec13), gave a special shout out to her new husband, saying, "This is the second best thing that happened to me all year; the first was marrying you baby! I love you."
Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson fought back tears as she was hailed the Favorite Humanitarian for her work with the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, the children's organisation she founded in 2008 to help underprivileged kids following the murder of her seven-year-old nephew.
She stepped onstage with her sister Julia to accept the award and paid tribute to her late mother and brother, who were also killed in the family tragedy, telling the crowd: "We wanna dedicate this to our mother, who taught us... that without family, you have nothing, and our brother, who was the most giving."
Awards co-hosts Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs kicked off the show with a skit straight from the diner of their hit sitcom 2 Broke Girls, featuring guest appearances by The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder, The Crazy Ones' Sarah Michelle Gellar, Christina Aguilera, Ian Ziering, The Big Bang Theory co-stars Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch, and talk show host Arsenio Hall. Cuoco also made a cameo in the opening sketch, handing over the honour of presenting the prizegiving after joking that she was going to be busy on the night of the event.

Ever want to date a gigolo but too cheap to pay for one? Like to win things? Enjoy sex toys? Well step right up, folks, because Las Vegas escort Nick Hawk from Showtime's Gigolos is here to answer all of your prayers. This hunk of man meat (if you're into dudes who wear tribal tattoo-inspired nipple rings) has aligned himself a Win A Date With Tad Hamilton -style contest in order to promote his 'Nick Hawk Gigolo Toy Collection,' which of course includes a genuine cast model of his junk (complete with moveable balls!). Why? Because this is America and no tacky decision should go undone.
Should you emerge victorious from the "Win a Date With Nick Hawk" contest, you will be wined, dined, treated like the VIP Las Vegas so expertly pretends you are, and pushed along afterwards with more than a few personal products (vibrators, dildos, and anal beads — oh my!) so that, should the night not go as one would expect, you can still get your rocks off in the hotel room. Thoughtful!
There's even a video, if you can stand the heat this Nick Hawk is emanating from his Ed Hardy-esque persona.
Something tells us you won't be encourage to guard your carnal treasure, since this is a gigolo we're talking about and not a fake movie star from a mediocre-at-best 2004 romantic comedy.

The last the world saw of Sartana Rivera, she was riding off into the beyond with her beloved Machete Cortez, following the latter's bloody duel with the malicious Senator McLaughlin. But as per the announcement immediately following this closing scene in Robert Rodriguez's 2010 cult favorite Machete, audiences haven't seen the last of these characters. Jessica Alba, who plays Sartana, has taken to Facebook to post a few snapshots of herself on the set of the forthcoming sequel Machete Kills, in the company of the director and costar Danny Trejo, who plays the titular hero.
The film has accumulated quite a few noteworthy possible cast members, including Mel Gibson, and, most recently, Charlie Sheen as the President of the United States of America. Check out Alba's pics below, and prepare for Machete Kills... and, eventually, Machete Kills Again.
