This series of awards is an American based annual event. Started in 1975, these awards are given to people for outstanding achievements in the entertainment industry. The selection is based on voting from the general public. This award has a few variations as well such as the “Fox’s Teen Choice Award” and Nickelodeon’s “Kid’s Choice Awards”. However, these are not directly related to the Peoples’ Choice Awards.

People’s Choice Awards Today

One of the main features of these awards is that they are literally decided on by the general public. In the early days the awardees were nominated on the basis of a manual survey. However, today the awards are decided on the basis of an online poll which is considered to be more reliable.

How the Voting is done

The uniqueness of these awards is that anyone can participate in the online polling. There are several sites which one can register with and then cast their vote. There is a fixed time period during which the polling can be done. There is no paper voting done any more. Also, there are some fixed rules and regulations which are to be followed and these details are available online as well.
