Ellen DeGeneres Hilariously Accepts People's Choice Award

At Wednesday night’s People’s Choice Awards, our favorite daytime talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, was awarded the Favorite Humanitarian Award for her notable charity work throughout the years. Introduced with a moving speech by Melissa McCarthy, DeGeneres accepted the award with her signature dry wit, calling herself the Mother Teresa of talk shows and the Dalai Lama of daytime.

She also used the occasion to remind people that everyone has the innate ability to be kind and generous, which is probably why she closed her speech with a shirtless photo of Chris Hemsworth.

Watch her funny speech below, and check out her MAKERS story in the video above.
