Jennifer Garner was one of the big Hollywood names to attend the awards show, and was on hand to collect the Choice Drama Movie award for Miracles From Heaven, along with her young co-star Kiley Rogers. 

In the film, Jennifer took on the role of real-life mum Christy Beam, whose daughter is miraculously cured from a rare disease. 

"Thanks to everyone, we were definitely the underdog in this category," the star told the crowd. "That's so exciting. It's amazing to us the impact this movie was able to have." Before leaving the stage, she added: "All the kids who are in a hospital waiting for a miracle, don't give up hope."

Jessica Alba was moved to tears as she took to the stage with a group of teenagers who have all lost family members to gun violence. Following a powerful performance of Marvin Gaye's track What's Going On by Ne-Yo, she told the crowd: "These teens had the courage to come here with their grief and take a stand. Tonight, Ne-Yo and I and all of us here and all of you watching need to do the same."

Ne-Yo then asked the audience to stand up, take their phones out and take a photo of the group on stage, and to then post the picture on social media with the hashtag #StopTheViolence.
