Neil Patrick Harris, '37th People's Choice Awards 2011'The only awards show voted on by you, it's the '37th People's Choice Awards' (Wed., 9PM on CBS). To keep things cozy and familiar, Queen Latifah returns for a fifth consecutive year as host for the festivities, which kicked off at 9PM ET on CBS, and we'll be there with you every step of the way.

This year the TV categories cover everything from the best in shows and actors, to favorite TV families, doctors, talk show hosts, obsessions, chefs and even guilty pleasures. You can see a list of all the nominees here.

As the People's Choice honors the best in television, movies and music, you'll find even more coverage at our sister site, Moviefone. Check out their photo gallery of all the gorgeous styles as the stars made their way into the Nokia Theatre for the big night. And you won't want to miss Moviefone's results analysis either, to see which movies and film stars are the 'People's Choice.'

175 million votes came in, setting a new record for the People's Choice Awards. Queen Latifah opened the night by saying, "I'm feeling a lot of 'Glee' tonight," and the show did pick up two awards, but it wasn't the night's biggest winner. The 'People's Choice' was also feeling a pretty extensive product placement with the Zio smartphone, which was used in place of envelopes to reveal the winners.

The year of love for Conan O'Brien continued as he took the first TV Award of the night for Favorite Talk Show Host. "When you're up against Oprah Winfrey, you don't want to win," he said in his acceptance speech. "It makes Oprah very, very angry."

Neil Patrick Harris ('How I Met Your Mother') took the award for Favorite TV Comedy Actor, his first honor since his 'Doogie Howser' days, while Favorite TV Comedy Actress went to Jane Lynch ('Glee'). After winning as Favorite New TV Comedy last year, 'Glee' took Favorite TV Comedy this time around in its first year in that category.

On the drama side, Lisa Edelstein ('House') won her first-ever award for Favorite TV Drama Actress, and took a picture of the audience to commemorate the moment. 'House' was also honored as Favorite TV Drama, with Hugh Laurie taking the award for Favorite TV Drama Actor, making it a clean sweep for the veteran series. Laurie even picked up an additional nod as Favorite TV Doctor, making house the most honored television series of the night.

After being gushed over by Queen Latifah, who remembered that one time they were on the cover of that magazine and that other time they fought and then made up and then fought and made up again, 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' was confirmed as hers and our Favorite TV Guilty Pleasure.

Favorite New TV Drama went to 'Hawaii Five-0' and, despite receiving a continuous critical drubbing that began even before it premiered, the people have spoken and '$#*! My Dad Says' won as Favorite New TV Comedy.

While they didn't appear on the telecast, 'Fringe' got some love as Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show, while you chose 'Dexter' as your Favorite TV Obsession. After twenty-two years, 'The Simspons' showed staying power, winning Favorite TV Family. For more TV winners, check out the full list of winners below.

OMG. That was by far the whitest award show to date. Not one black TV show or movie even nominated. and 2 token black singers, Come on. What "people" are actually voting for this crap, surely no people of mine. If it wasnt for Queen Latifah we would have been totally left out. I surely wont be watching this crap again.

that was the worst show I've ever watched. I don't know who voted in this thing but I can't believe how awful and embarrassing the selections were. Queen Laftifah is insufferable. Only saving grace was seeing Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman and Ashton...I think it's teens who really don't see many movies or anything else. The Kardasians with other real actors etc.,,,omg...how bad! The three pigs.

Queen Latifah should not have worn that pink dress...she looked like a sausage! It was a horrible show... it was boring!!! Am I the only one sick of Taylor Swift and twilight people!

Conan won? For being the best at bringing down ratings maybe.

Queen Latifah ought to stick with whatever it is she does best. Not really sure what that is.

Yes. Conan won, because all the voters felt sorry for the biggest cry-baby, multimillionaire on the planet!

Wow...that was actually hard to watch. I thought I liked Queen Latifah until I saw her host this show. She really brought it to a new ghetto level. And her stint with the Kardashian's was unbearable. Every time she came back on stage, I couldn't wait for her to leave. This stint certainly didn't do much for her career.

Worst 2 hrs spent of my life. Queen Latifah was terrible. loud and unoriginal. if i heard "thats what im talking about" one more time i think i would have puked. and i never did know what she was talking about. How many product endorsements were in the show? anyone count? i lost track. how often did the mic not work? why was the mic down so low for the winners speech? more cleavage? Why did they announce one winner and as that person was coming to the stage say oh yeah, the show also won in their category? never really any acknowledgment of the other contenders or even their own time on stage. and of those 175 million votes that came in, how many were the same people voting over and over again. I can tell you it wasn't sane adults doing the voting. Based on some of the winners there were a lot of teenagers with lots of spare time on their hands to sit on the computer and vote over and over again for the same people and shows. How sad that over the years The Peoples Choice Awards should now be called The Voters Who Have No Life and Limited Tv, Movie, and Music Knowledge And Who will Sit Online All Night and Vote. What integrity. Oh well, I've ranted enough. Just another show I mourn for but will not watch again.

you're sooooo right on. It was an embarrassment. I felt sorry for some of the real actors that attended.

I'm not a fan of Queen Latifah's hosting abilities. Still, Dexter, FRINGE, and Conan O'Brien all won tonight, which is pretty awesome in my eyes!

Wow...I don't think I will ever watch anything that even threatens to involve Queen Latifah again
