People"s Choice awards 2012: Emma Stone and Katy Perry are the biggest winners

Emma Stone proves biggest winner of People's Choice Awards (that actually showed up)…as MIA Katy Perry sweeps the show with five trophies

She was the brightest light during an evening where the stars failed to show, but Emma Stone wasn't complaining.

The 23-year-old Crazy, Stupid, Love star won two trophies at tonight's People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

She was cool in both attitude and attire, expressing her excitement to the audience in a hip green tuxedo jacket and skinny black trousers.

'It is so insane to be standing up here right now,' she added. 'It is hard to describe to you.'
