Yes, I can say to you guys that I don't have 18 years old yet. But I can prove that I'm in many groups in Facebook (made for BatB) and they have 90% - or even more - ladies with a lot more than 18 years old. A lot. We voted SO much, everyday! And this ladies voted a lot more than me, they're so dedicated. They are wives, mothers, grandmothers and good people. We deserve this victory.

Who votes for People's Choice Award ? Certainly not me. Breaking Bad as most missed is the only show that would have gotten my vote

I'm 28 and no "teenie" as it was said in comments before who has voted for the PCAs, to be specific for my favourite show Beauty and the Beast and Kristin Kreuk. When voting started, I knew it would be like David fighting against Goliath because there are millions of TVD fans, so I voted everywhere I could, at least 2.000 times a day. The fandom's win is well-deserved, "beasties" are very dedicated to their show and voted their hearts out to make this happen. To all the people who can't believe it, what about congratulating? A miracle has happened, it was a tough fight. And I'd like to congratulate TVD fans on Ian and Ninas win, we don't hate anybody. We just love our show.

The People's Choice Awards have always followed this same format, so I'm not sure why everyone is getting upset about it now. They have way too many awards to give in such a short time. And yes, the winners do know ahead of time, that's why they were there. You didn't see many nominees around who didn't win at least one thing. But again, that's how this show has always worked. They do it the way they did with Stana because she was already set up to present so she could just kill two birds with one stones... Not a lot of the presenters won awards or this would have occurred more. And yes, it may have very well been teens voting for these awards, but everyone is able to. So you can't really get upset about it... It's still a better awards show than most as it encompasses shows people actually watch!

Yeah! Congrats to REIGN and BATB! Also congrats to Kristin Kruek with BATB!(I hope I spell her last name right). I love the two tv shows above they're my favorites! Go Mary! Go Francis! Also Bash! :-)

I agree Castle also won big,so they should be added.
Sad however that they did not receive their price on stage like the other winners,That does seam rather unfair.

I agree the winners knew ahead of time that they won. It is all staged. How more pathetic these awards can be. And the voterrs clearly were some teenage girls younger than 18, as the winners are shows mostly seen by teenagers so it really does not represent the whole majority of age demographic. Pathetc awards. They should beeen even eliminated from the awards shows

I can testify that I'm surely no longer a teenager - well beyond I can tell you. And I voted with my heart out for BATB.

"Castle" also won big, winning Favorite Crime TV Drama 3rd time in the row :) Add them to the list, please :)

200% agreeing with you, I was gutted when they said "presentig next is the winner for best TV drama actress Stana Katic"... I wanted to see the presenters announce "and the people's choice goes to Stana Katic", she didn't actually have any time to give a speech!
But, I am very happy that she won

What was the average age of the voters, if known? It seemed the higher viewing rated shows were not even represented. And it's very obvious the "winners" knew ahead of time they won....it takes the surprised look they display when their name is announced as being over-acting.

I actually don't think it was meant to appear to be a surprise. Even one of the winners (I think Julianna Marquelis when accepted the award for the Good Wife) talked about how surprised the cast/crew were when they found out they won. And also only people who won showed up not all the nominees and they only handed out the awards that the winner was present for. I definitely didn't like that half the awards weren't presented, multiple awards were given out at once if someone won more than won, and some of the winners had to do their acceptance speeches while presenting. It felt overly rushed and was so annoying. Also some of the winners (mostly ones that weren't presented) don't make any sense. You are telling me that Beauty and the Beast beat out TVD, OUAT, Sleepy Hollow and Walking Dead? Even if excessive amounts of teens were voting TVD or OUAT would have won over Beauty and the Beast.

Well, I'm 53 years old, and I voted over 100 000 times for BATB..... And I'm not the only dedicated beastie around. So I think it's safe to say that we won the award fair and square. The other shows fans simply didn't vote enough... And yes, I do have a life, but I spend a lot of time in boring phoneconferences at work, some days as much as 4 hours, and every vote I placed using the facebook app took 3 seconds to place. That makes an average of 1100 votes per hour. I put in over 70 000 votes that way. And then on breaks, I voted using the Androidapp....

No need to justify youself! Let's just enjoy r well deserved win!

I can believe it. I'm 33 and I voted like 15 times a day for Joseph Morgan as best actor in a new show. Some of these shows are watched by more than teens. After all the target demographic to win is usually women 18-34. Not the low end of teens. But then I'm not a fan of BATB at all. It's not a bad show per se, I just never got into it. But I seriously agree OUAT should have beat BATB!!! OUAT is my favorite show. It is seriously fantastic.

Beauty and the Beast is an amazing show and has a very dedicated following. So do not underestimate what #Beasties will do to share their love for Beauty and the Beast and its Cast.

@ Ida+May

I agree with you Ida May. I've been all into Beauty and the Beast since it began and I've loved every episode. Kristin deserved to win PCA for Fav.Sci/Fi Actress. She works hard and the chemistry that she and Jay have is as Vincat is great. We Beasties are roaring for more of BatB and hope it gets renewed for a 3rd Season. The show is exciting and has everything. I look forward to it each week because I'm addicted. Me and the rest of the Beasties are so happy it did well in the 2014 PCA.
