People’s Choice Awards Nominees 2017
The People’s Choice Awards 2017 has 64 categories in which fans submit their votes for nominees. This may be a big year for talk show host, comedian, actress, and activist Ellen DeGeneres. DeGeneres is nominated in three categories, and if she sweeps the awards, she will win the most People’s Choice Awards in history. There’s a big difference between People’s Choice Awards and award shows like the Golden Globes or the Academy Awards. For example, Suicide Squad was destroyed by critics, yet a popular hit with fans. Some fans were so outraged by negative reviews of the film that they threatened lawsuits. Suicide Squad is a contender for the 2017 People’s Choice Awards for favorite movie. It is competing against Captain America: Civil War, Finding Dory, Deadpool, and Zootopia.

Another example of how the People’s Choice Awards nominees differ from other award shows is the nomination for the Netflix series Fuller House for favorite premium comedy series. While Fuller House is a huge hit with fans and will return for Season 3, the show was obliterated by negative critics’ reviews. The difference between the award shows and nominations makes it clear that fans and critics have different opinions on quality entertainment and taste. During award show season, the People’s Choice Awards stands apart from the other events as it is the time when the fans truly voice their opinions and cast their votes.
The nominees for the 2017 People’s Choice Awards were announced in a live press conference. You may see that video below.

How to Watch CBS Live Stream Online
CBS will provide two live streams; neither of which are free. The first stream is through CBS Live, and you must have a cable or satellite television subscription in order to watch shows like the People’s Choice Awards online. The second is CBS All Access. CBS All Access is a pay subscription that gives you an a la carte version or app with access to CBS on-demand content and programming, as well as live TV events. International viewers who want to watch the People’s Choice Awards will find that CBS All Access is the best option.
While many people suggest cutting the cable cord and ordering stand-alone services, you’ll quickly find the subscriptions add up. Those who want to ensure they have easy, simple access to live events, streaming online programming, and on-demand shows will find that having a cable or satellite subscription is the best way. With your cable or satellite provider, you can even download your provider’s official app and tune into live television broadcasts that way. For example, if your cable provider is Spectrum or Comcast, download that app, then tune to the CBS channel, and you can watch the live stream that way.
Are you going to watch the People’s Choice Awards and Red Carpet event streaming live online through the CBS apps, on TV or on demand? You will be able to follow the 2017 People’s Choice Awards on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.
