This funny lady is being celebrated for more than just her dance skills! At the 2016 People’s Choice Awards, Ellen DeGeneres will receive the fourth annual award for Favorite Humanitarian, presented by Walgreens.

“I am so honored to be receiving the People’s Choice Humanitarian Award,” DeGeneres said in a statement. “I think it sums me up perfectly as I am both a human and an itarian.”

DeGeneres has used her talk show to help those in need and raise awareness of worthy causes, one of which is her chosen beneficiary, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. That isn’t the only opportunity DeGeneres has to get up on stage: She is nominated once again in the Favorite Daytime TV Host category—and taking home that trophy would tie her for the most People’s Choice wins in history.

While we don’t yet know if she will tie the record or not, we can be sure she will provide the audience with laughs when she takes the stage with fellow comedian and host Jane Lynch. Tune in to the People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 6 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
