Queen Latifah will return as host of the ‘2010 People’s Choice Awards’ ij January, and a few people of color and their respective projects will battle it out for the title of ‘People’s Choice.’

Emmy Award-winning supermodel-turned-talk show host Tyra Banks’ daily talk show is nominated for favorite TV talk show, but she will have to beat ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show,’ as well as ‘Chelsea Lately,’ ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and ‘Live with Regis & Kelly.’
