The category is fashion! The 2022 People’s Choice Awards are still hours away — and we can expect our favorite stars to kill them.
The biggest names in music, television, film and style will be celebrated on Tuesday, December 6th at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California – with Kenan Thompson serve as the host of the ceremony. The comedian also hosted the 2021 soiree.
“I’m really excited to host the People’s Choice Awards again this year and to celebrate the incredible talent and fans that this show brings together,” said Thompson, 44, who is also a Comedy TV Star nominee, in a statement in October. “I’m so thankful to be nominated – Greetings to the fans and congratulations to all the nominees. Get ready for round two!”
Other celebrities who are nominated include, among others Reese Witherspoon, Selena Gomez, doja cat and Lizzo for their presence on social media. The 34-year-old “Truth Hurts” artist is also being honored with the People’s Champion Award for her commitment to promoting diversity and inclusivity across race, gender, sexuality and size.
“She leads with kindness, champions inclusion and advocates for more diversity and equity in the industry and beyond.” Cassandra Tryon, senior vice president of entertainment live events at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said of Lizzo, per Variety. “Her commitment to breaking down barriers and empowering others to use their own voice to create change makes her a true ‘people’s champion.'”
