The PCAs come just before the Golden Globes and the Oscars and offer audience members lighthearted humor while recognizing the best in movies, television, and music. Each award is selected through votes by fans, which- President of People's Choice Fred Nelson believes- makes it the most empowering gala of its kind.

"From categories to nominees to winners, the people are in charge. We're excited to once again empower the fans to create the show they want to see on January 9."
