Johnny Depp gets emotional during acceptance speech at People's Choice Awards

"I came here for one reason tonight and one reason only". "Who through whatever good times or bad, have stood by me, trusted me". "You've very, very graciously invited me here tonight". So I appreciate that very much.

As members of the audience cried "I love you", the actor continued to express touched he'd been by their "kindness" during his dramatic divorce from actress Heard.

For reference, to win Favorite Movie Icon, Johnny Depp was voted over fellow nominees Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Cruise, and Tom Hanks.

In mid-January, after an extremely long and drawn-out process, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard finalized their divorce.

Depp, 53, and Heard, 30, were married for 15 months.

2016 was a tough year for Johnny Depp which saw him lose his mother and have his marriage to Amber Heard come to a very public and nasty end with allegations he was abusive, but Johnny Depp seemed to have noticed that his fans stayed right by his side, and thanked them for their support after being presented with a People's Choice Award Wednesday night.

Perhaps he should thank the people who stuck by him, because we all had good reason to seriously doubt the man's character in light of 2016's unsavory revelations. E! News said the former couple finally reached a settlement since divorce papers were filed back in May of previous year. All of that makes Depp's appearance at this year's People's Choice Awards that much more special and memorable.

In a hearing in a court in Los Angeles on Friday, the judge declined Heard's request to delay the finality of the divorce to take Depp's deposition, reports TMZ.

Heard had previously announced that she was going to donate the money from the split directly to charities after she claimed Depp was physically abusive to her during their relationship.
