Writer: Dzamira Dzafri


"Iron Man 3" was the most popular film at the People's Choice Awards.

12 Jan – Sometimes even regarded as even more pointless than the Teen Choice Awards, the very recent People's Choice Awards 2014 had awarded the public's most voted for person, show, film, video or song with a trophy in the shape of the teardrop of a usually more deserving nominee.

"Iron Man 3" ended up winning a whole bunch including Favourite Action Movie Star (Robert Downey Jr.), Favourite Action Movie and Favourite Movie, sweeping the film category with almost everything.

Sandra Bullock also won big for her work in "Gravity", as the acclaimed film by Alfonso Cuaron seems to also be very well received by movie fans and voters, winning Favourite Dramatic Movie Actress, Favourite Movie Actress and Favourite Movie Duo with George Clooney. But that's not all, as she also won awards for the popular comedy "The Heat", scooping up Favourite Comedic Movie Actress and Favourite Comedic Movie as well.
