Category voting for the event begins Tuesday at PeoplesChoice.com.

“What an honor it is to be back producing the People’s Choice Awards for the sixth year in a row,” Burnett said of the upcoming extravaganza. “This awards show has grown from 62 million votes five years ago to over 700 million votes for 2014. These awards are from the fans who actually watch TV shows, buy movie tickets and download music. It’s the one awards show that truly is all about the fans.”

The event will air live from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
