In addition, Lawrence picked up an additional award for Favorite Movie Actress, beating out the likes of Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone, and Scarlett Johanson. 

Katy Perry was the other major winner at the People’s Choice awards, picking up trophies for Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Pop Artist, Favorite Music Video for “Part of Me”, and Favorite Music Fan Following for Perry’s fanbase “Katycats”. Yes, we are awarding people who actively call themselves “Katycats” now. Believe it. One Direction also won their nominations in Favorite Song of the Year for “What Makes You Beautiful” and Favorite Album of the Year for their debut “Up All Night”, furthering cementing the People’s Choice awards as being relevant only to 11 year old girls.
