Where: Simulcast on E! and NBC live from the Microsoft Theater in LA

This year, the 2022 People's Choice Awards are expected to be simulcast on both E! and NBC on Sunday, November 13, beginning at 9PM ET live from the Microsoft Theater in LA.
Meanwhile, expect 2022 PCA nominees to be announced in October, and keep it here for more updates including who will host, special awards, and big winners at the 2022 People's Choice Awards!
