The 2016 People's Choice Awards aired tonight and once again "Supernatural" claimed at coveted prize. Both Misha Collins and Jensen Ackles were up for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor, but there could only one could win. Last year Jared, Jensen and Misha were all nominated and Misha Collins won. This year it was Jensen's turn.
The award was given off camera, and here's Jensen's official acceptance speech on his Facebook. He and Misha are pretty adorable in this!

Today, People's Choice ran this article on the win.
"Supernatural" was also up for favorite Sci-Fi Fantasy TV show, but lost out to the very motivated fandom from "Beauty and The Beast." Ah well, better luck next year.
