Joaquin Phoenix may have been named favorite leading man during Tuesday's People's Choice Awards, but the actor wasn't feeling too chatty about the honor. Sure, he was grateful. But in his taped acceptance speech, Phoenix nodded to the ongoing writers' strike – which forced producers to retool the show – by using cards to broadcast his message. "I'm speechless without the writers," his cards read. "Seriously. But in my own quiet way, I want to thank the millions of fans that voted for me for favorite leading man." The actor then mumbled a quick "thank you" at the end of his printed message.
