People’s Choice Awards 2024: Adam Sandler Receives People’s Icon Of The Year Honor From Jennifer Aniston, Delivers Hilarious Acceptance Speech

At the 2024 People’s Choice Awards, Adam Sandler was honored with the People’s Icon Award, receiving a touching tribute from friend

Jennifer Aniston. Hosted by Simu Liu, the event celebrated Sandler’s legendary comedy roles and his profound impact as an actor, writer,

and producer in the film industry.

Starting his acceptance speech on a light note, Sandler humorously joked about mistakenly believing he had won PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive title, and he wrote a speech for that. Sandler said, “My name is Adam Sandler and I am the sexiest man alive, can I get a hell yeah?”

He then went on, “To the PEOPLE Magazine’s academy members of hotness and sexual attractiveness, I would like to say thank you for recognizing me as the man who made our entire country the horniest this year and was by far the most-talked-about person in the bedroom by couples or throuples during fantasy role plays and sloppy time. Can I get another hell yeah?”
