It was definitely a night worth celebrating for Ellen DeGeneres and for sure a time she will never forget.
As we have reported before, the TV host and comedian has broken the record for the most awards received at the People’s Choice Awards in its whole 46 years of existence. The fact that the awardees are chosen by the public makes the recognition even better because she knows how many people admire and respect her.
This year’s edition of the awards show she took home, to complete her collection, the wins for Favorite Daytime TV Host, Favorite Animated Movie Voice, for Finding Dory, and Favorite Comedic Collaboration at the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Although her beloved wife, Portia de Rossi was unable to get to the event in time to see Ellen walk on stage and receive her trophies because of a traffic jam, Ellen and Portia managed to celebrate the special record of 20 wins after the show ended.
The two went out for a romantic dinner date at the Madeo.
Because they left right after the ceremony, Ellen was still wearing her Award outfit, a velvet burgundy jacket over a black button-down shirt and matching pants.
Portia De Rossi however, managed to change into something else, trading in her white-and-gray blouse top for a more casual navy shirt and jacket with gold buttons.
The pair looked very happy in each other’s company and they couldn’t stop smiling all evening. Paparazzi took dozens of pictures showing the two cheerful women leaving the Italian restaurant.
After Ellen DeGeneres was awarded at the People’s Choice Awards, reporters managed to catch up with her backstage and the TV personality could not stop talking about Portia and her gorgeous red carpet look, saying jokingly that “It’s such an accident because she normally doesn’t look beautiful like that.”
