Congratulations, Ellen DeGeneres!
The 58-year-old TV star made history at last night’s People’s Choice Awards by winning the coveted award for the 20th time!
During the star-studded show — held at LA’s Microsoft Theater on Wednesday, Jan. 18 — Ellen was honored with a fun video montage of all her past wins before a parade of tuxedoed men displayed all 20 of her PCA trophies onstage.
“Tonight, her People’s Choice Awards total hits 20… I don’t know how that’s possible. Let’s bring them all out,” Justin Timberlake said before presenting Ellen with her newest award.

“Well, that was subtle… did you request that?!” the singer asked Ellen, who was sitting in the audience beside wife Portia de Rossi.
“Ladies and gentlemen, winning tonight for Favorite Daytime TV Host, Favorite Comedic Collaboration, [and] Favorite Animated Movie Voice, she’s the most decorated winner in People’s Choice history. She is one of my very good friends, I love her so much. She’s one of the best people on this planet and no one is more deserving — the one and only, Ellen DeGeneres,” Justin continued before Ellen appeared onstage.
“This is amazing,” Portia’s wife — who won her first PCA for Favorite Female Performer in a New TV Series in 1995 for her starring role on Ellen — began her acceptance speech.
“Twenty — seventeen, I get it. Eighteen, sure. Nineteen, I can see that. But 20 is outrageous. This is really something than means more to me than… because it comes from the people… so I say thank you, people, and the only thing that would make me happier is if it was voted on by animals,” she continued.
“Thank you all very much, I love you,” Ellen concluded her speech.
After her big win, Ellen took to Twitter to again express her gratitude. “The reason I get to do what I do is because you watch it, like it, vote for it, and retweet it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. #PCAs,” she wrote.
