Who else won the top prizes?
The winners of the People's Choice Awards have been announced! And while there are a few surprises here and there, such as 'Game Of Thrones' losing out in two categories as well as 'Jurassic World' AND Amy Schumer, it's a pretty pleasing set of results for a monster of a year in terms of entertainment.
