The movie of the year award is based on the votes cast by the audience throughout the show.

Not just romance and drama were celebrated. Bridesmaids won two awards for Melissa McCarthy’s best comedic performance the leading ladies’ gut wrenching performance in the food poisoning scene. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 managed to steal two awards under the best cast and best hero categories.
