Downey Jr. wins 2 awards at People’s

LOS ANGELES - Robert Downey Jr. was seeing double at the People’s Choice Awards.

The star of “The Judge” and “Iron Man” picked up the trophies for favorite dramatic movie actor and favorite movie actor at Wednesday’s fan-favorite ceremony honoring stars in film, television and music.

“This is perfect for me because I love people, I’m crazy about movies, and I prefer people who love my movies,” Downey said.

“The Big Bang Theory” also won multiple honors. The sitcom about a group of scientists was awarded trophies for favorite network TV comedy and favorite TV show, while co-star Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting was chosen as favorite comedic TV actress.

“We truly have a love and passion for making this show together,” said “Big Bang” co-star Johnny Galecki. “Honestly, it’s a dream come true every day, and it’s never lost on any of us for a split-second that it’s entirely due to your love and support.”

The gush-filled ceremony kicked off at the Nokia Theatre with “Mom” stars Anna Faris and Allison Janney quipping about their selection as the show’s hosts.

“Oh, who are we kidding?” Farris joked. “Neil Patrick Harris was unavailable, and Ellen DeGeneres said she was busy.”

However, DeGeneres wasn’t completely booked. The talk show host was on hand to pick up the trophy for favorite daytime TV host.

Other winners in attendance included Hunter Hayes as favorite male country artist, Matt Bomer as favorite cable TV actor, Chloe Grace Moretz as favorite dramatic movie actress and Chris Evans as favorite action movie actor.

“I’ll say 30, 40 percent of the votes were my mom, but the other 60 percent, it really, really means a lot to me,” Evans said. “I’m eternally grateful.”

Melissa McCarthy was honored as favorite comedic movie actress, while Adam Sandler was selected as favorite comedic movie actor.
