Ellen DeGeneres People’s Choice Awards 20th Win Video – Watch Justin Timberlake’s Tribute
Ellen DeGeneres made history at Wednesday’s 2017 People’s Choice Awards by becoming the first celebrity to hit 20 wins. Check out the video below!
The talk show host went into the 43rd PCAs with 17 previous victories and three nominations tonight. To no one’s surprise, DeGeneres won all three categories: Favorite Comedic Collaboration, Favorite Animated Movie Voice, and Favorite Daytime TV Host. That gave her her 18th, 19th, and 20th wins, more than anyone else in the history of the awards.
In celebration, Justin Timberlake came on stage to deliver a special tribute in DeGeneres’ honor. “She’s a trailblazer, a rule breaker, a relentless philanthropist, which I’m told is a good thing, a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, and one of the funniest, kindest people on the planet,” he said. “I’m talking, of course, about Portia’s baby mama.”
Following a montage of some of DeGeneres’ past PCA moments, Timberlake hilariously had all of her trophies brought out on stage. When the comedienne came up to accept, she amusingly went on tangents about mashed potatoes and animals. “The only thing that would make me happier is if they were voted on by animals because I love animals,” DeGeneres announced, before doing a funny bit.
This is now the second year in a row that the PCAs have featured a special segment dedicated to DeGeneres. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, at the 2016 show, DeGeneres was honored as the Favorite Humanitarian. Watch the new video of Timberlake and DeGeneres below!
