Blake Shelton said he was happy he was honoured at the E! People’s Choice Awards on Sunday so that he wouldn’t be the only one at his table who didn’t win anything during the night.

The “Voice” judge won the prize for favourite country artist, which was announced later in the show.

During his acceptance speech, Blake pointed out that his seatmates – Gwen Stefani, his girlfriend; the late-night host Jimmy Fallon; and the actress Zendaya – had all been honoured.

“I’m really glad I won this, because I was the only person at my table who hasn’t won anything tonight, and it was starting to get a little bit embarrassing,” Shelton said.

He added: “Zendaya was making fun of me earlier.”

Fans on Twitter loved the joke.

But the “Euphoria” star wasn’t the only celebrity to get a shout-out during Shelton’s speech. He said that thanks to the singer Pink, who had said a curse word that was bleeped out in the live broadcast, “now I know we can cuss on this show.”

“I want to say: Gwen Stefani, I love the s— out of you,” he said.

Earlier in the night, Stefani was honoured with the style-icon award, and she, too, professed her love for her boyfriend during her acceptance speech.

“I love you, Blake Shelton. You’re a babe,” she said.

Fallon took home the award for nighttime talk show of 2019 for “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and Zendaya won awards for favourite movie actress and drama TV star of the year.
