'Pretty Little Liars,' 'Harry Potter' rule second wave of Teen Choice Award nominees
Teens -- get ready to make even more difficult choices.
The 2011 Teen Choice Awards have announced the second wave of nominees (see the first wave -- dominated by "Twilight" -- here). TV dramas "Pretty Little Liars" and "Switched at Birth" lead the new grouping with five nominations each.
In the movie categories, summer blockbusters with long titles like "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" placed well, along with more teen-targeted fare such as "Monte Carlo" and "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."
"Teen Wolf" joins "Pretty Little Liars" and "Switched at Birth" among the most-nominated TV shows. There's also the far-fetched competition between "The Walking Dead" and "The Voice" in the Breakout Show category.
Wave 2's music categories are predictably owned by pop stars Demi Lovato, Beyonce and Jason Derülo (who will perform at the show).
The event itself promises to be a star-studded evening. Justin Bieber, Rebecca Black, John Cena, Zooey Deschanel, Ashley Greene, Joe Jonas, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Katie Leclerc and Mike “The Miz” Mizanin will be joining previously announced participants Tyra Banks, Jason Bateman, Kirsten Bell, Rachel Bilson, Cat Deeley, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Gillian Jacobs, Tyler Posey, Maggie Q, Avril Lavigne, Kellan Lutz, Vanessa Marano, Joel McHale, Nikki Reed, Zoe Saldana and Taylor Swift. The special will also feature performances by will.i.am and Jason Derülo.
This year's event will also feature a special new award, the Acuvue Inspire Award, which will be given to a celebrity teen who has made outstanding charitable contributions over the past year.
The award show will air live Sunday, August 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
Fans ages 13-19 can vote once a day, per category at Teenchoiceawards.com. But hurry -- voting ends Friday, August 5.
