By Radar Staff

Katy Perry wasn’t at the 38th annual People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles Wednesday night, but that didn’t stop her from being the night’s big winner.

The Firework singer, who ducked out on the CBS show following her recent split with estranged hubby Russell Brand, took home five awards: Favorite Female Artist, Tour Headliner, Song of the Year for “E.T.“, Music Video of the Year for “Last Friday Night” and TV Guest Star for her cameo on How I Met Your Mother.

She tweeted following her wins: “THANK U to every1 who voted for me for the @peopleschoice tonight! We won so many! Now I need to get more books 2 successfully display them!”

“I moved to L.A. eight years ago this week with my mom, who’s right there,” a moved Stone said. “It is so insane to be standing up here right now. It is hard to describe to you.”

Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Levine, Lea Michele and Demi Lovato were among the night’s other winners, while the venerable Morgan Freeman collected the show’s first-ever Favorite Movie Icon award. 

“When I found out that I’d been nominated for the first-ever People’s Choice movie icon award, I decided to look up ‘icon,'” The Shawshank Redemption star said. “Here’s what I found: The first definition said an icon is a tiny picture on a computer screen that represents a file.”
