People's Choice Awards
The award show's creator was Bob Stivers, who produced the first show in 1975. The first awards recognized The Sting as 1974's Favorite Picture, Barbra Streisand as the year's Favorite Film Actress, and John Wayne as its Favorite Film Actor. Ratings for the annual event peaked in 1977, when the 3rd People's Choice Awards attracted 35.3 million viewers who witnessed Farrah Fawcett win for Favorite Female TV Star, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope win as the Favorite Picture, and Streisand and Wayne win again in the Film Actress and Actor categories.
Procter & Gamble, the show's only sponsor, bought the show from Stivers in 1982. Outside of the required local advertising and network promotional time, all advertising during the awards show features solely P&G brands.
