The People's Choice Awards aired live Wednesday night on CBS and honored stars like Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Lautner and Johnny Depp. More than 60 million votes were cast in categories that spanned TV, music and movies.
While the show marked the start of awards season, it didn't offer too many surprises in the way of entertainment. No shocking acceptance speeches, no huge upsets, no awkward conversations between recent exes Swift and Lautner.
Hey, at least there's the Golden Globes next weekend, right?
