Ellen Degeneres is officially the most decorated PCA winner in the award show’s history! The comedian and daytime host now has 20 awards, which is a world-record. We love Ellen and are so proud of her! She definitely deserves those awards. Congrats! Can she just run for president already?

When Justin Timberlake won the award for Favorite Male Artist AND Favorite Song. He celebrated with Ellen and Portia De Rossi by giving them both a big hug and jumping up and down because of how happy they were. Can you say friendship goals?

In his acceptance speech for Favorite Song, JT made a shoutout to his wife Jessica Biel, and of course his son, Silas. Justin told his son who may or may not have been watching the show “if you are buddy, the nanny is fired! I love you and go to bed! You’re the reason why I wrote this song.” The song he was talking about was ‘Cant Stop The Feeling’. So cute!

Blake Lively‘s incredible speech about girl power! In her acceptance speech for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress, Lively said, “Thank you for sending a message to Hollywood that people wanna hear stories about women, and we wanna hear your stories. Whether it’s social media, your iPhone, whatever. Tell your stories now more than eve. You need to be heard. You are valuable. No one can limit you,” — Very empowering!

And last but not least, was Fifth Harmony‘s killer performance. The girls — Lauren, Dinah, Normani, and Ally — slayed as a foursome as they performed their hit ‘Work from Home’. They also took home an award for Favorite Group. This was the first major performance they have done since Camila Cabello left the group in December.
