Disney/Pixar’s WALL●E was voted Favorite Family Film during Wednesday night’s People’s Choice Awards, beating out DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda and Disney/Walden Media’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. However, the night belonged the Warner Bros.’ The Dark Knight, which fluttered off with five awards, including Favorite Movie, Favorite Action Movie and Favorite Cast. The Batman pic also earned stars Christian Bale and Heath Ledger a win for Favorite On-Screen Match Up, and saw Bale’s Batman take Favorite Superhero.
FOX’s The Simpsons proved it’s still keeping the fans in stitches. The long-running comedy from creator Matt Groening was voted Favorite Animated Comedy, besting fellow FOX toon Family Guy and Comedy Central’s South Park. The win was mentioned briefly by the CG-animated M&M characters, who appeared throughout the show and explained that no one came up to accept the award because none of the Simpsons characters are real.
The 35th Annual People’s Choice Awards was broadcast live on CBS from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Calif. See the complete list of nominees and winners at http://www.pcavote.com/pca/show/nominees.
