Despite not appearing at Wednesday’s 38th annual People’s Choice Awards, Katy Perry was the big winner of the night.

Perry, whose 14-month marriage to Russell Brand ended last month, was honored in five categories, as favorite female artist, tour headliner and for song of the year for “ET” with Kanye West, music video for “Last Friday Night” and TV guest star for How I Met Your Mother.

In a Twitter message earlier in the week, Perry said she wouldn’t attend but told fans, “I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed!”
