*For the first time ever the 2018 E! People’s Choice Awards was put on by E! Entertainment for its 44th year. It’s the only major award show that allows the public to vote entirely for their favorite categories in film, TV, music and everything pop culture and EURweb was there.
First up on the carpet was “This Is Us” star Susan Kelechi Watson who discussed her recent photo shoot with Glamour and the show’s latest season.
“The majority of us felt like this is going to be one of our best seasons,” she told yours truly, Rocky Harris. “I love where we’re going with Vietnam, with exploring depression, exploring Randall’s campaign and Beth losing her job just all these issues – fertility – so much is going on this season. It’s exciting.” Watson also shared that it was her first time being on the cover of a magazine.
Comedian and Chicago native Lil Rel Howery stepped on the People’s Choice red carpet for his very first time.
“I like going to awards shows, it’s very interesting. I actually enjoy the show. It’s always who you’re sitting next to.” He also added his feelings on now being a part of the people’s favorites crew. “It’s a peace of mind thing. It’s hard when you start to become a celebrity or whatever that is and everything that comes with it. But I’ve been handling it well,” said Howery.

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Terry Crews has been outspoken about several social issues. He took the time to give his thoughts on gun control and how he uses his celebrity to promote non-violence.
“My thing is no one should be able to fear that this [mass shootings] would happen to them in America. There’s got to be a way to uphold the constitution and also make sure you don’t wipe out the civilization,” said Crews.
His wife, Rebecca King-Crews, chimed in saying, “Massive assault weapons shouldn’t be sold to individuals. Why are they doing this?”
The awards took place Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. See the complete winners list here.
