(Newser) – Sandra Bullock reigned supreme at the 40th annual People's Choice Awards last night, taking home four trophies as the evening's top winner. The actress was named favorite movie actress, comedic actress, dramatic actress, and shared the favorite movie duo award with Gravity co-star George Clooney. Bullock's buddy comedy, The Heat, co-starring Melissa McCarthy, was awarded favorite comedic movie. Click for a complete list of winners.

The show's most emotional moment came when Jennifer Hudson won the humanitarian award for her work with children via her Julian D. King Gift Foundation, created with her sister, Julia Hudson, in honor of her nephew, Julian King, who was murdered in 2008 at the age of 7. Accompanied on stage by her sister, Hudson, holding back tears, accepted the favorite humanitarian award. "My mother always taught us without family you have nothing," Hudson said. "Whether you know it or not, we all are family. What happens to the other happens to us. It's one thing to be a celebrity and have power, but it means nothing if we're not making a difference and helping someone else."
