First Wave of Teen Choice Awards Nominations Are In


Get your ya-ya-yas out: the Teen Choice Awards nominees are in. The usual suspects are all present and accounted for — Shailene Woodley, Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift, One Direction — as are the shows that make the teenage girls’ hearts throb, such as Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars, each with five nominations. (MTV made a nifty flow chart explaining the various, often interweaving hook-ups that permeate Pretty Little Liars.)

Starting now, fans ages 13 to 19 (sorry, 30-year-old men) can vote once each day per category at the Teen Choice Awards website.

The show, which includes categories such as “Choice Male Hottie” and “Best Smile” have been the teenage retort to the Academy Awards since 1999. Winners receive a surf board festooned with that year’s graphic design. Since 2001, it has been held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California. Usually, the show airs on a one-day delay to allow time for all the apt cuts for time restrictions and optimal commercial placement, but this year the two-hour event airs live Sunday, August 10 at 8 p.m. on FOX.

Miley Cyrus has the most nomination so far, with 41 since 2006, while Britney Spears is in second with 34 since the inaugral year (her most recent nomination was in 2011.) This year’s hosts haven’t been named yet. Last year’s show was hosted by Darren Criss and Lucy Hale.
