The 43rd Annual People’s Choice Awards was definitely full of some major moments. From Ellen DeGeneres making history and nabbing her 20th PCA, to Jennifer Lopez taking home her first TV acting award. Then of course there were the upsets, the shockers and the tearjerkers. Here’s our recap of the 10 most memorable moments of the evening.
Winning big for the night was Ellen DeGeneres, who made history by becoming the most decorated People’s Choice Awards winner ever. The Finding Dory star swept three big categories, including Favorite Daytime TV Host, bringing her lifetime PCA total to a whopping 20 awards.
In TV, JLO nabbed her first major TV award — Favorite TV Crime Drama Actress — for her role on Shades of Blue.
Tyler Perry received the Favorite Humaitarian Award for all his charitable efforts and endeavors. During his acceptance speech, Perry addressed the dark state of this country and encouraged people to “be light for each other.”
Taj Mowry and the cast of Baby Daddy FINALLY nabbed their first PCA after being nominated three years in a row. The cable comedy beat out The Real Husbands of Hollywood, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Younger and Atlanta.
BFF’s Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson won a trophy apiece — The Rock for his show Ballers and Hart for Favorite Comedic Actor. But, the highlight had to be when Hart accepted his award, and Johnson flipped him the bird.
In music, Justin Timberlake won two awards, Favorite Pop Artist and Favorite Song for his hit “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” which he wrote for the movie Trolls.
Meanwhile, Fifth Harmony performed for the first time as a foursome and capped off a show-stopping performance of their single “Work From Home” by winning Favorite Group. Good job, ladies! Now let’s work on that name change.

And, Priyanka Chopra shocked many when she beat out Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, Ellen Pompeo and Taraji P. Henson for Favorite Dramatic TV Actress.
Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview
Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.
“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”
According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.
Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.
“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”
She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”
In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.
“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
