Since 1975, the People’s Choice Awards have been sidestepping the critics, guild members, Hollywood insiders, and anyone who could potentially earn the "professional" label to play litmus test of the general public. Anyone can vote using the PCA’s online, paving the way for a populist read on pop culture. What can we gather from the 2014 results? For one, the country is watching different movies.

"Maleficent," "Divergent," "22 Jump Street," and actors like Melissa McCarthy, Adam Sandler, and Jennifer Lawrence. all earned love from the 2015 People’s Choice Awards, which hand out a bevy of genre-specific awards. There’s a little crossover with the circuit — "Gone Girl" picked up a Best Thriller statue — and then there are wins that feel a bit more artificial. "The Judge" star Robert Downey Jr. hasn’t been in the Best Actor conversation since people saw "The Judge" in September. But, hey, a PCA pick-me-up never hurt anyone.
