For decades he has made audiences laugh, but now 57-year-old comedian Adam Sandler has a special honor: at the 49th People's Choice Awards, which will be held on February 18, he will become the owner of the title of "Favorite Icon in Cinema" (People's Icon Award). This was announced by the organizers of the event to the Hollywood Reporter.

The annual ceremony at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica will be hosted by Marvel star Simu Liu.

Previously, the People's Icon Award has been awarded to such stars as Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Reynolds and Jennifer Aniston.

It is also already known that musician Lenny Kravitz will receive the Music Icon Award.
