Mostly the People's Choice Awards recognize excellence in the arts, but every once in a while you have to look at the stars' humanity!
That's why we appreciate the new Favorite Humanitarian award, which has been presented for the past three years to Sandra Bullock (2013), Jennifer Hudson (2014), and Ben Affleck (2015).
And this year's recipient is none other than Ellen DeGeneres, the star we love to watch give back the MOST!

Friend and fellow funny lady Melissa McCarthy was on hand to sing the praises of the charitable talk show host, who has raised MILLIONS over the course of her career.
Ch-ch-check out the enormously grateful and highlarious-as-always Ellen accepting the award — and the $100k donation to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital (above)!
And be sure to stay updated on the winners list as it's revealed HERE!
