Sir Alex Ferguson has been named Barclays Manager of the Season, with Nemanja Vidic taking the player's prize.
Manchester United clinched the Premier League title with last weekend's draw at Blackburn and will receive the trophy at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Red Devils have also made it through to the final of the UEFA Champions League, where they will face Barcelona at Wembley later this month.
Two of the men at the forefront of their success have now been recognised in a prestigious awards double for United.
Centre-back Vidic has been a key cog in United's defence and has made more league starts than any other Red Devils player during the campaign.
Ferguson lands the top manager award from the Premier League sponsors for a ninth time, while 29-year-old Vidic has now been named Barclays Player of the Season twice in his United career.
The votes came from representatives of football's governing bodies, the media and supporters.
