    Yay celebrities! Yay rich people! Yay awards!

    With the end of the Oscars on Sunday night came the end of the awards season. Now officially, the term "awards season" usually only refers to the stretch of film-related events between November and the Academy Awards. For entertainment sites (like this one!), we refer to "awards season" as every single award show that happens between November and the Oscars, so that includes stuff like the Grammys and the People's Choice Awards, because…well, we cover that stuff so it counts.

    Beyoncé performed "XO" and looked damn beautiful doing so.

    One Direction Brit Awards GIF

    Harry Styles was late to the stage to accept an award with One Direction because he was "having a wee." That means he was peeing. We think.

    Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev GIF

    Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder may have broken up last year, but they still won Best Onscreen Chemistry. It was awkward. And then Ian made it more awkward by planting a big one on Nina's cheek while accepting the award.

    Justin Timberlake Instagram

    Justin Timberlake thanked wife Jessica Biel in his speech, but she ditched the show to go snowboarding. And then J.T. went to Taco Bell.

    Britney Spears won her first People's Choice Award, and she was super-thankful, y'all.
