The Teen Choice Awards Nominees Are Insane


Listen, I understand that as a non-teen, I should probably just ignore the Teen Choice Awards altogether and go along my merry way. After all, that same technique works just fine for similarly silly awards shows like the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, the MTV Movie Awards and the Grammys (zing!).

That all being said, the nominations for the 2011 Teen Choice Awards were announced today and I just couldn't look away. Some of these are just laughable—like Limitless being in the same category as Black Swan for Choice Movie: Drama—so I thought I'd share with you fine readers so we could all have a good chuckle. And since there are seemingly eight thousand categories—Choice Movie: Hissy Fit is an award, I kid you not—I'll just highlight the particularly absurd or interesting. Enjoy!

Choice Movie Actor: Action
Michael Cera, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Johnny Depp, The Tourist
Vin Diesel, Fast Five
Dwayne Johnson, Fast Five
Paul Walker, Fast Five

Yup, George Michael Bluth Michael Cera is up against Vin Diesel and The Rock for an action award.

Choice Movie: Drama
Black Swan
Limitless
The Roommate
Soul Surfer
Water for Elephants

I mean... c'mon...

Choice Movie: Comedy
Bad Teacher
Bridesmaids
Due Date
Little Fockers
The Other Guys

Is anyone else concerned that Bad Teacher came out five days ago—to horrid reviews—and is already receiving awards nominations?

Choice Movie: Hissy Fit
The Alien, Super 8
Ed Helms, The Hangover Part II
Robert Downey Jr., Due Date
Mark Wahlberg, The Other Guys
Kristin Wiig, Bridesmaids

This category is embarrassing... but I vote for Kristin Wiig.

Choice TV Actor: Drama
Penn Badgley, Gossip Girl
David Boreanaz, Bones
Chace Crawford, Gossip Girl
Daren Kagasoff, The Secret Life of the American Teenager
Hugh Laurie, House

Hugh Laurie is probably feeling pretty lousy about his Emmy nomination chances at this point.

Choice TV: Animated Show
American Dad
Bob's Burgers
The Cleveland Show
Family Guy
The Simpsons

Ladies and gentlemen, your FOX Sunday night lineup.

Choice Red Carpet Fashion Icon: Female
Miley Cyrus
Vanessa Hudgens
Lady Gaga
Jennifer Lopez
Taylor Swift

If Miley Cyrus wins this, I may have a stroke.

The Teen Choice Awards air Sunday, August 7 at 8/7c on FOX... but please spare yourself.
