She must be home in a onesie! Jessica Biel may have missed out another award show with her husband Justin Timberlake Wednesday night, but the singer made sure to mention her during his night out. While attending the 2014 People's Choice Awards in L.A., the entertainer thanked his "beautiful wife" when accepting the award for Favorite Male Artist.

"Thank you! I would like to thank Ellen for all the personal inspiration and the cookies -- bakes a hell of a cookie," Timberlake, 32, said of his seat buddy Ellen DeGeneres. "No, I'd like to thank my parents for continuing to instill in me that no dream is too big."

"I'd like to thank all the fans who voted. I'll take it -- people's champ, I love it," he continued. "And I'd like to thank my beautiful wife for teaching me patience and the little things like just putting the dishes in the dish washer. It goes a long way -- fellas, you're welcome!"

This is the second award show in a row the "Take Back the Night" singer has attended without 31-year-old Biel. During the 2013 American Music Awards on Nov. 24, the Total Recall actress explained her absence when her no show caused a frenzy on social media.

"I'm watching from home tonight," she tweeted at the time. "Calm down, Internet."
