Forget magazine polls and television ratings, the people have chosen who they find worth awarding.

And the stars are Sandra Bullock, Johnny Depp and the Taylors (both Swift and Lautner) who were honoured at the 36th Annual People's Choice Awards aired on CBS on Wednesday night. The show was hosted by Queen Latifah.

Bullock bagged an award for the Favourite Movie Actress for The Blind Side. The actress beat out stiff competition from Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart.

But that's not all. Bullock's film The Proposal, costarring Ryan Reynolds, was named the Favourite Comedy, reports People.

'I am only up here because I am fortunate to work with people who make me look good,' a tearful Bullock said while accepting her award. '[Thanks] most of all to my family ... Life is hard sometimes, but we get through with laughter.'

'Thank you to everyone who voted,' she said, 'because you're voting for all the people who make me look good -- and you're making me look very good.'
