'House M.D.' and 'Glee' came at the top of the list as Favorite TV Drama and Comedy while Demi Lovato and 'Lie to Me' earned double nods.
FOX's shows "House M.D." and "Glee" prove that they appeal to fans after their victories at 2011 People's Choice Awards were announced. "House" not only won Favorite TV Drama but also helped Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein to win the favorite TV Drama Actor and Actress while Favorite TV Comedy "Glee" delivered a win for Jane Lynch.
The event is a fan-voted awards show which was held at Nokia Theatre on January 5 in Los Angeles, California. Other winners which were announced early were Neil Patrick Harris (Favorite TV Comedy Actor) and Conan O'Brien (Favorite Talk Show Host). The latter said on his acceptance speech, "When you're up against Oprah Winfrey, you don't want to win. It makes Oprah very, very angry."
Laurie once again won for his take on Gregory House, winning Favorite TV Doctor which was actually dominated by the doctors from "Grey's Anatomy". Although the biggest nominee, "Grey's Anatomy" could only manage to steal Favorite Guest Star for Demi Lovato. For Lovato who is in rehab, this is a consolation night for her TV movie "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" also won.
Voted as Favorite TV Shows in Comedy and Drama are "$#*! My Dad Says" and "Hawaii Five-0" respectively. Homer Simpsons and his family walked away with a trophy as Favorite TV Family, beating The Griffins, The Harpers, The Pritchetts/Dunphys and The Scavos.
Meanwhile, "Lie to Me" surprisingly pocketed two nods, one for Favorite TV Crime Drama and the other for Favorite TV Crime Fighter (Tim Roth). This would be especially meaningful for the FOX show which was not given a back-nine order recently.
2011 People's Choice Awards also honors those in movie, music and other fields.
