Who is being honored at the 2022 People's Choice Awards?

The biggest award of the night is going to Ryan Reynolds. The Deadpool actor is set to receive "The People’s Icon” award. Reynolds, who is also a nominee this year, is being honored "for his contributions to film and television."

“In any endeavor—whether it’s acting, producing, marketing or business—Ryan Reynolds has the unique ability to create joy and authentically connect with his audience. He's received many accolades over the years, but it's these innate qualities that makes him so beloved,” Tryon said in a press release. “We cannot wait to present Ryan with ‘The People’s Icon’ award at this year’s show.”

Also being honored at the 2022 PCAs are Shania Twain and Lizzo. Lizzo is being recognized with “The People’s Champion” award for "her groundbreaking contributions to music and television, as well as her commitment to championing overall diversity and inclusivity across race, gender, sexuality, and size."

Meanwhile, Twain will take home the “Music Icon” award. “I’m so incredibly honored to be named ‘Music Icon,’” the country star said in a press release. “I have some of the greatest fans in the world. They have supported me since the early days, and it’s their love and passion that keeps me going. I’m thrilled to go back on tour and bring my new music and fan favorites to them, and what better way to start than at the ‘People’s Choice Awards!’”
