‘The Hunger Games’ was the big winner at the People’s Choice Awards last night (09.01.13), picking up five prizes.

The blockbuster film – the first in a trilogy based on Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novels – was named Favorite Movie, Favorite Action Movie and Favorite Movie Franchise, while its star Jennifer Lawrence was named Favorite Movie Actress, and she and co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth took home Favorite On Screen Chemistry.

Jennifer – who beat competition from Mila Kunis, Emma Stone, Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson to take the Favorite Movie Actress accolade – said: “Thank you for loving movies as much as I do, and loving this movie and voting.”

However, the 22-year-old beauty also admitted she wasn’t feeling very glamorous on such an auspicious occasion.

She said: “Oh my gosh, I’m sweating so much I’m gonna drop it. Oh god, Robert Downey Jr. knows, I sweat all over you … when I shook his hand!”

Katy Perry was the biggest individual winner, being named Favorite Female Artist and Favorite Pop Artist, while her ‘Part of Me’ single was honored with Favorite Pop Video. Her ‘KatyCats’ were named Favorite Music Fan Following.

She said afterwards the awards were a “very nice way to start off the New Year”.

She added: “I think if I had to pick one of the awards, Favorite Music Fan Following would be my favorite one because my fans support me so much.”

British boy band One Direction scooped two prizes, Favorite Song for ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ and Favorite Album for ‘Up All Night’.

‘The Big Bang Theory’ actress Kaley Cuoco hosted the ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Performers included Christina Aguilera, Jason Aldean and Alicia Keys.

A record-breaking 475 million votes were cast for this year’s event.
