'Twilight' eclipses rivals at People's Choice Awards

January 5, 2011 |  8:00 pm

Despite rumors to the contrary, the public is not so fickle. The mass of humanity voting for the People's Choice Awards stuck with familiar faves when picking winners.

One year after Johnny Depp won two People's Choice Awards for favorite movie actor of 2009 and favorite movie actor of the decade, he returned to claim the trophy as the first favorite actor of 2010 too. The latest "Twilight" installment, "Eclipse," won favorite movie and favorite on-screen team just as the previous version ("New Moon") did last year.

Twilight saga eclipse people's choice awardsThat crowd pleaser Adam Sandler, past recipient of four People's Choice Awards, claimed yet another (favorite comedy star).

However, Angelina Jolie no longer reigns as a favorite action star, a prize she won twice in the past. This year she lost to Jackie Chan. In addition, she lost favorite actress to "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" lovebird Kristen Stewart. At least Angie still has Brad . and a house full of kiddies to console her.

Stewart's victory was a nice rebound, considering she lost the category last year to Sandra Bullock.

The "Iron Man" franchise finally flexed its muscle. Two years after the first version lost three People's Choice prizes, part two nabbed the laurel as favorite action film crushing Angelina Jolie's "Salt."
