The People’s Choice Awards

Aired on CBS: March 4, 1975

Streisand and Sammy Davis Jr.

Presented at the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly HIlls, The People's Choice Awards included Barbra Streisand winning the first annual “Favorite Motion Picture Actress.”

Introduced by Sammy Davis, Jr., Barbra accepted the trophy and said: “This award has a special meaning for me because I've always had the greatest respect for audiences. It's uncanny but they cannot be fooled. You cannot be fooled. You keep an actor honest because you are the finest barometer of the truth, so, I'm really very proud to receive this award from you, the audience. Thank you all very, very much.”
