Furious 7 And The Big Bang Theory Win Big At People’s Choice Awards 2016


James Wan’s box office juggernaut Furious 7 emerged as the big winner from last night’s People’s Choice Awards 2016, nabbing two prizes across the Favorite Movie and Favorite Action Movie categories. It brings closure to a remarkable year for Universal’s petrolhead franchise, which is now eyeing a production start in Cuba ahead of F. Gary Gray’s 2017 entry into the series.

Beyond that, the other success story was that of The Big Bang Theory. Continuing to pull in the big numbers even after nine seasons, Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady’s beloved sitcom took home the Favorite TV Show and Favorite Network TV Comedy gongs, while Jim Parsons – who plays the incomparable Sheldon Cooper – got the nod for Favorite Comedic TV Actor. Remaining with the big winners for the time being and Melissa McCarthy stole the show across both mediums, earning Favorite Comedic Movie Actress and Favorite Comedic TV Actress.

For the full play-by-play breakdown of the People’s Choice Awards 2016, you can consult the list below. Indeed, many of the nominees and eventual winners aren’t terribly surprising, so don’t expect these awards to have too much bearing on the Golden Globes and/or Oscars.
