The People’s Choice Awards are over a month away, but we already know the name of one celebrity who’ll pick up an award at this ceremony. Jennifer Lopez will be honored with the People’s Icon Award for her contributions to music, film, television, and fashion.

Jen Neal, general manager of live events and lifestyle digital for E! News, praised Lopez for giving us some of the “most iconic, unforgettable performances of all time” for more than two decades.

“For paving the way for artists around the world and single-handedly increasing Latinx representation in music, film, television, and fashion, we’re honoring Jennifer Lopez with The People’s Icon of 2020,” said Neal in a statement.

2020 has been a landmark year for Lopez even before this announcement. She received a series of major award nominations for her role in Hustlers and delivered a historic performance at the Super Bowl LIV halftime show. She’s next set to appear in the romantic comedy Marry Me, alongside Owen Wilson and Maluma.

This year’s People’s Choice Awards will take place on November 15th, with a live broadcast on E!
