The 43rd Annual People’s Choice Awards took place tonight (January 18, 2017) in Los Angeles, California with Pixar’s Finding Dory taking home the prize for three awards. Held annually since 1975, the People’s Choice Awards differs from the average award shows as the categories are voted on by the general public rather than members of the Hollywood Foreign Press and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — to name a few.

Previously, Pixar Animation Studios has won four People’s Choice Awards for Cars (Favorite Family Movie, Favorite Song), Wall-E (Favorite Family Movie), and Toy Story 3 (Favorite Family Movie). Tonight, Finding Dory has nearly doubled the People’s Choice trophy count for the studio by winning all three nominated categories (see complete list below).

While the People’s Choice Awards tend to not televise each category, Ellen DeGeneres was on hand to accept a few awards; Best Daytime TV Host, Favorite Comedic Collaboration, and Best Animated Movie Voice for her reprise role in Finding Dory — making her the most decorated People’s Choice Award recipient.


  • Finding Dory (WINNER)
  • Captain America: Civil War
  • Deadpool
  • Suicide Squad 
  • Zootopia


  • Ellen DeGeneres in Finding Dory (WINNER)
  • Bill Murray in The Jungle Book
  • Ginnifer Goodwin in Zootopia
  • Jason Bateman in Zootopia
  • Kevin Hart in The Secret Life of Pets


  • Finding Dory (WINNER)
  • Alice Through the Looking Glass  
  • The Jungle Book 
  • The Secret Life of Pets 
  • Zootopia

In addition to The People’s Choice Awards, Pixar’s exciting award season continues with nominations for Finding Dory and Piper being recognized at the Annie Awards, BAFTAs, VES Awards, Producer’s Guild of America Awards. Although Finding Dory was overlooked at the Golden Globes, we are also eagerly awaiting upcoming nomination announcements for The Academy Awards.
