Throughout the four plus decades that the People’s Choice Awards has been on the air, they’ve given out trophies to some of the most important and well regarded movies of our time. In the first few years alone The Sting and Jaws were Peoples Choice Award winners, which is proof enough that the people tend to get these things right. But every once in a while there are some left field winners in categories that are stacked with competition. The following collection of Peoples Choice Awards snubs show that viewers need to stay on their toes with this ceremony. Anything can happen at the People’s Choice Awards, and that goes double for walks away a winner from the ceremony.

Green Lantern Wins Favorite Movie Superhero

A rare miss from the voters on this one. In 2012 Ryan Reynolds took home this award over Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), and Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique).

Fuller House Takes Home The Award For Favorite Premium Comedy Series

This win is so out of left field, especially when you look at the shows it was competing against. This category was stacked with Showtime standout Shameless, Netflix darling Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Golden Globes titan Veep. This is legitimately wild.

G-Eazy Wins Favorite Hip Hop Artist

At the 2017 awards G-Eazy took home a trophy in this category stacked with top tier and legendary artists like Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and Wiz Khalifa. G-Eazy probably wasn't even expecting this one.

Carrie Wins Favorite Horror Movie

No, not the Brian De Palma directed, genre defining film from 1976. The one from 2013 that you're struggling to remember right now. At the 2014 ceremony, that version of Carrie beat The Conjuring and Insidious: Chapter 2 for best horror movie.
