Every January, awards season kicks off with the delightfully weird People's Choice Awards. It's truly unlike any other ceremony: The winners are determined by plebeians with Internet access, categories change constantly (debuting this year is Favorite TV Character We Miss Most), and there's the longstanding rumor that those who take home trophies are informed ahead of time. Plus, the cross-pollination of music, movies, and television allows entertainers of all kinds and calibers to interact. As a result, nearly anything can happen — like these 15 notable moments from years past.
The 41st annual People's Choice Awards will air January 7 at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.
