Titanic still People's Choice
Another prize: Director James Cameron with actress Suzy Amis
Movie blockbuster Titanic was a hit at a major US awards ceremony on Sunday night - but director James Cameron has had enough of winning prizes.
The film won 11 Oscars last year, and sailed home with two People's Choice Awards, which are voted for by the public through a nation-wide telephone poll.
But James Cameron said: "We're hoping this is closure. It really is a great honour. After 1998 being such a fantasy year for all of us, this is a nice way to end it."
Saving Private Ryan star Tom Hanks - who won favourite movie actor - joked: "It's never too late to give an award to Titanic."
But the film's stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet lost out to Hanks and Sandra Bullock as favourite actor and actress. Sir Elton John, who performed on stage with country singer LeAnn Rimes, was named all-time favourite musical performer.
Seinfeld and Frasier shared best television comedy, and ER won best television drama. Favourite male television performer was Tim Allen, from the sitcom Home Improvement.
Helen Hunt - who won a best actress Oscar for As Good As It Gets last year - picked up favourite female television performer for her role in Mad About You.
Asked by reporters if she was tired of award ceremonies, she replied: "When you win, it's hard to get sick of it. It's very flattering."
There's Something About Mary was named best comedy movie.
This year's awards - the 25th - were the first to feature online voting via the Internet.
