One Direction, The Wanted, Taylor Swift and Rihanna scoop prizes too

The Hunger Games was the big winner at the People's Choice Awards last night, picking up six prizes.

The blockbuster film - the first in a trilogy based on Suzanne Collins' best-selling novels - was named Favourite Movie, Favourite Action Movie and Favourite Movie Franchise, while its star Jennifer Lawrence was named Favourite Movie Actress, and she and co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth took home Favourite On Screen Chemistry.

Jennifer - who beat competition from Mila Kunis, Emma Stone, Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson to take the Favourite Movie Actress accolade - said: "Thank you for loving movies as much as I do, and loving this movie and voting."

However, the 22-year-old beauty also admitted she wasn't feeling very glamorous on such a high-profile occasion.

Accepting her award from actor Robert Downey Jr., she said: "Oh my gosh, I'm sweating so much I'm gonna drop it. Oh god, Robert Downey Jr. knows, I sweat all over you ... when I shook his hand!"

Katy Perry was the biggest individual winner, being named Favourite Female Artist and Favourite Pop Artist, while her Part of Me single was honoured with Favourite Pop Video. Her KatyCats were named Favourite Music Fan Following too.

She said afterwards the awards were a "very nice way to start off the New Year".

She added: "I think if I had to pick one of the awards, Favourite Music Fan Following would be my favourite one because my fans support me so much."

Taylor Swift was named Best Country Artist whilst British boy band One Direction scooped two prizes, Favourite Song for What Makes You Beautiful and Favourite Album for Up All Night. The Wanted also represented Britain to the max by winning Best Breakthrough.

The Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco hosted the ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Performers included Christina Aguilera, Jason Aldean and Alicia Keys.

A record-breaking 475 million votes were cast for this year's event.
