It was a big night for the family-friendly animated adventure “Finding Dory” and the decidedly more adult-themed superhero movie “Deadpool” at the People’s Choice Awards.

“Finding Dory” was named favorite movie and favorite family movie, while “Deadpool” was named favorite action movie and star Ryan Reynolds took home an award for favorite movie actor.

Britney Spears took home three awards in the music categories — favorite female artist, favorite pop artist and favorite social media celebrity — along with one for favorite comedic collaboration, which she shared with Ellen DeGeneres.

DeGeneres became the most decorated artist in the 47-year history of the awards, winning three tonight for a lifetime total of 20.

In the television categories, “Outlander” was named favorite show; “The Big Bang Theory” was named favorite network comedy; and “Grey’s Anatomy” was named favorite network drama.

Favorite cable drama went to “Bates Motel”; favorite cable comedy was “Baby Daddy.”

The awards were presented at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Comedian Joel McHale, star of CBS’ “The Great Indoors,” hosted the ceremony, which was slated to air on CBS beginning at 9 p.m.

Actor/writer/filmmaker Tyler Perry received the fifth annual People’s Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian during the show, honoring his efforts on behalf of organizations including the NAACP, Feeding America and Charity Water.
