Tonight (Dec. 18) marks the first ever People Magazine Awards. Meant to be a celebration of the past year in pop culture, the awards show presented different categories throughout the night that were accepted by some of Hollywood’s most esteemed stars.
The categories were kept a near secret until the awards show aired, but we managed to keep a close eye on the broadcast and compile a list of tonight’s big winners for you! There was only one fan voted award, which was an award for Best People Magazine Cover of the Year, that fans could vote on through Twitter.
