How to Watch the 2020 People’s Choice Awards This Weekend

Get ready for a star-studded Sunday because E! News is hosting the People’s Choice Awards once again.

You can expect an impressive line-up of nominees, guests and performances on the evening of Nov. 15. For the third year in a row, the 2020 People’s Choice Awards will go live from Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. It’s not clear what kind of social distancing measures the pop culture and entertainment network will adapt for its 46th annual award show, but plan on previewing some serious fashion on the red carpet hosted by E! News’ own Giuliana Rancic ahead of the live broadcast at 9 p.m. ET.

Read on to find out more details on E! News’ 2020 People’s Choice Awards show, including how to watch, who is hosting and attending this year’s event.

How Can I Watch the Award Show?

You’ll be able to watch the 2020 People’s Choice Award Show on E! News starting at 7 p.m. ET with the evening’s red carpet hosted with Giuliana Rancic. Following the two-hour parade of arrivals, the live broadcasted awards will kick-off at 9 p.m. ET. You can also follow the excitement through E! News’ Twitter and Instagram, which will kick off at 8 p.m. ET.

According to Eonline.com, the show will re-air at 11 p.m. ET on the entertainment news network channel and be available online on Monday, Nov. 16.

Who Is the Host?

Demi Lovato is this year’s PCA host. We expect the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer to have a line up of fabulous outfits and shoes, both on the red carpet and throughout the show. Lovato’s heels collection is quite impressive, even during the COVID-19 pandemic she has been spotted teetering in shoes from cutting-edge designers such as Amina Muaddi, who is slated to receive yet another award, this time with Rihanna, at the 2020 Footwear News Achievement Awards, which will be held virtually, on Dec. 8.
