Animated movie sequel Shrek 2 swept the boards at Sunday night's 31st Annual People's Choice Awards with a staggering five wins.

The film defied the odds by collecting gongs for Favorite Movie Drama, Favorite Movie Comedy, Favorite Animated Movie, Favorite Sequel, Favorite Animated Movie Star and Favorite Villain Movie Star.

Fahrenheit 9/11 shocked viewers by claiming the Favorite Motion Picture Award--despite attacking US President George W. Bush--while last year's other controversial picture, Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ won the Favorite Movie Drama prize.

Hollywood darlings Julia Roberts and Johnny Depp were crowned the most popular male and female movie stars, while Renee Zellweger was named the Favorite Leading Lady for her portrayal of loveable 'singleton' Bridget Jones in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.

Brad Pitt's victory as the Favorite Leading Man for his part in movie epic Troy was overshadowed by his recent split from wife Jennifer Aniston (News: Pitt and Aniston Split)

The ceremony, hosted by TV stars Jason Alexander and Malcolm Jamal-Warner, was held at the California's Pasadena Civic Auditorium and broadcast on CBS.

The nominations were chosen by editors at magazine Entertainment Weekly, the People's Choice production team and a panel of pop culture fans, while winners of the 38 film, television and music categories were determined by internet voting.
