LOS ANGELES (AP) — The people still like Ellen DeGeneres.

The comedian picked up her 11th trophy at the 36th annual People’s Choice Awards. DeGeneres was awarded the favorite talk show award Wednesday at the fan-favorite ceremony. During her acceptance speech, the new “American Idol” judge poked fun at Sandra Bullock, who was on hand with Ryan Reynolds to receive the favorite comedy movie award for “The Proposal.”

“One for each of Sandra Bullock’s toes,” the talk show host joked.

Queen Latifah, who returned as show host for the fourth consecutive time, kicked off the ceremony at the Nokia Theatre with a jazzy name-dropping number. Stars such as Mariah Carey and Carrie Underwood were on hand to accept trophies selected by Internet voters.
