The show kicked off Wednesday night with Sandra Bullock receiving the award for favorite movie actress.
Presented the award by fellow actor Sean Hayes, Bullock said, “I know this looks like I spent lonely Friday nights just voting for myself, but I didn’t.

The star-studded show featured appearances by Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum, Zac Efron, Anna Faris and Michael B. Jordan.
