The biggest moment of the night was when audience member Zacari Nicasio took the stage and grabbed the mic from “The View” co-host Sara Gilbert, who was accepting the award on behalf of her co-stars for Favorite Daytime TV Hosting Team. Before he was literally kicked offstage by Sharon Osbourne, Nicasio gave a shout-out to Kanye West and Kevin Gates, exclaiming, “Yeezy jumped over the Jumpman.”
After the incident, Nicasio was handcuffed by the LAPD, but released shortly after. He told The Hollywood Reporter that he crashed the staged "to tell everybody who I was” and promote his own music, as well as pay respect to his idols. He added, "I had to shout out who I look up to: Kanye West and Kevin Gates. I came here to do this tonight. I could honestly care less about what was going to happen.”
Nicasio also posted a video on Instagram of himself jumping onto the stage with the caption, "You know I had to do it.. 2016 I'm taking over 💯 @future @privatekanye @balmainparis @zara @iamkevingates #2016 #peopleschoiceawards #yeezy."
This wasn’t the first time that Nicasio has done something like this; he also crashed Kris Jenner’s 60th birthday party. Watch a video of him talking to Kris at the party.
Another highlight from the show was when Dakota Johnson experienced a wardrobe malfunction while taking home the Favorite Dramatic Actress award for her work on “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Onstage, she said, “Leslie [Mann] just broke my dress. Well, it’s not like nobody here hasn’t already seen my boobs.” Watch!
One bittersweet moment featured Vin Diesel, who got emotional while taking home two awards for “Furious 7.” He paid tribute to Paul Walker by singing a few lines from Wiz Khalifa’s hit song “See You Again.” He said, "When we didn't want to come back to filming when the tragedy was too heavy, it was the love of everyone combined that saw us through to the end.” Watch the moment!
Melissa McCarthy also grabbed some attention for her much slimmer figure at the star-studded ceremony, where she was honored with the Favorite Comedic Movie Actress award and Favorite Comedy TV Actress award. When she took home the Movie Actress award, she shared, "This is so crazy to be up here. Every time you buy a ticket, every time you go to see a movie, every time you support it, you allow me to live out a crazy dream. I always feel like I should pinch myself because I can't believe that I can do it.”
