It's not really a surprise, but our beloved The Dark Knight has grabbed the top honor at the 35th People's Choice Awards. If there was any award the film was sure to get, that's the one I'd pick. Aside from Favorite Movie, the film also scored a win in the Favorite Action Movie category, and an acting nod for Christian Bale and Heath Ledger. That's right -- one prize, Favorite On-Screen Match-Up. (Chemistry, baby!) Plus, a win for Favorite Cast and one more for Bale as Favorite Superhero -- sorry Tony Stark.

With all the love and press, however, the Dark Knight wasn't able to sweep the ground out from under Will Smith, who picked up both Favorite Male movie Star and Favorite Male Action Star. And outside the realm of irresistible geek fare, Wall-Enabbed Favorite Family Movie, The Secret Life of Beesscored Favorite Movie Drama and Independent Movie (over Zachary? I think not.), and, egads, 27 Dresseswon the prize for Favorite Movie Comedy. Really, people? Over Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and the other great comedies last year? Geez.

Wrapping up the Favorite wins: Favorite Leading Man went to Brad Pitt, Funny Male Star went to Adam Sandler (did we go back to the '90s?), Female Movie Star went to Reese Witherspoon, Leading Lady went to Kate Hudson (again, what year are we in?), Female Action Star went to Angelina Jolie, Funny Female Star went to Tina Fey, and Favorite Song -- Meryl Streep and "Mamma Mia."
