"How I Met Your Mother" and "Supernatural" won big at the 38th Annual People's Choice Awards. The former led the pack of TV winners, bagging three kudos from all three categories for which it was nominated.

The CBS sitcom successfully beat out strong contenders such as "Glee" and "The Big Bang Theory for the coveted Favorite Network TV Comedy. It also led Neil Patrick Harris to win Favorite TV Comedy Actor prize, and Katy Perry to grab Favorite TV Guest Star title.

Grabbing one less than "HIMYM", "Supernatural" should be proud for it managed to edge out other popular shows such as "The Vampire Diaries" and "House M.D." to take home the Favorite Network TV Drama gong. The CW horror series also beat "TVD" and "True Blood" among others to be named the most Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show.

Also going home with multiple prizes from the January 11 ceremony was "Castle". The ABC crime series was hailed as Favorite TV Crime Drama, while one of its lead stars, Nathan Fillion, was honored with Favorite TV Drama Actor title.

Meanwhile, "Glee" which dominated the nomination list with seven noms only scooped one through Lea Michele's win for Favorite TV Comedy Actress. The Rachel Berry depicter said in her acceptance speech, "I want to dedicate this to my amazing cast, my glee club. You are my family and my best friends. I'm an only child and now I have 11 other siblings."

"TVD" was not going home empty handed either, since its leading lady Nina Dobrev snatched Favorite TV Drama Actress award. Other winners that night included "American Idol, "Pretty Little Liars" as well as new shows "Person of Interest" and "2 Broke Girls".

The 2012 People's Choice Awards was held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles with Demi Lovato serving as a musical performer. The annual prize-giving event also presented awards to people's favorite in music and movie industries.

We are delighted but not surprised that Supernatural's talented cast and crew won major categories. We are ,however, baffled by the inexplicable snub of such an excellent production.

Absolutely ridiculous that the Supernatural cast wasn't invited and awarded on air for Favorite TV Drama. Ridiculous.

Well, I guess we didn't "dominate" hard enough considering we spent hours upon hours voting for Supernatural -and winning BOTH I might add- only to have the PCAs spit in our faces, Jensen's, Jared's, Misha's, and the crew of the show by fiercely downplaying their win. Oh, and to add insult too injury? The assholes had the audacity not to even INVITE any of them to the award show! They sent them their fucking awards in a cardboard box! The lack of respect and acknowledgment for this amazing show is just... astounding. Utterly, astounding. Shame on you PCAs. PEOPLES CHOICE Awards indeed... =(

I am also very upset that Supernatural was snubbed and not invited and that the award was not presented live. The People (all the SPN fans) voted for hours to let our boys win and this is how this amazing show is repaid. Supernatural is Amazing and the PCA's should be disgusted with themselves

I'm so happy Supernatural won in both categories but I'm livid that they were ignored in the ceremony. Best drama is one of the most important TV awards in every ceremony and the PCA has always broadcast it in the past. I guess they're not famous enough for someone high up - apparently it's only the people's choice if the executives approve. It is absolutely disgraceful!

I am super happy about Supernatural's win. SPN deserved this and I am thrilled that both awards are in the bag! Yeah! But I find it insulting and utterly unprofessional that they didn't invite the Supernatural leads to the award show. From TVD only Nina won, and yet they got invited, Supernatural won two main categories and the PCA simply ignored them. The award was given in a 30 sec vid in the red carpet pre-show online. PCA promoted that the "Network TV Drama" would be presented live, but since Supernatural won, they just changed their minds about that. Pff. What a scandal!

I'm Trending #PCASNUBSSPN What the PCA's did was unacceptable, Snubbing SPN & in turn all the fans who voted & tuned in.

I was thrilled that Supernatural won 2 awards, but really disappointed that PCA didn't see fit to actually give them their awards during the broadcast show (especially when one of the categories was Favorite Network TV Drama).
