The Teen Choice 2012 nominees have been announced and The CW's “The Vampire Diaries” is sitting pretty with six nominations.

Unsurprisingly, "American Idol" and Justin Bieber also made strong showings, nabbing five nominations a piece. The latter is up for both Choice Male Hottie and Choice Twit.

Likewise, there are multiple nominations for such big screen juggernauts as "The Avengers," "The Hunger Games" and "The Twilight Saga." George Lucas' maligned "Red Tails" could even go home a winner. The brand new “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” also picked up four nods.

The Teen Choice Awards celebrate Bieber, Selena Gomez and the other stars that the coveted youth market obsess over -- although folks like Tom CruiseSalma Hayek and Robert Downey Jr. are hardly teens.

This year's new categories include Choice Electronic Dance Music (EDM) Artist. and Choice Book. Aren't the "Twilight" books way too old to be counted this year? "Breaking Dawn" came out four years ago, but whatever.

The awards show will air live Sunday, July 22 at 8:00 p.m. ET (PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

Here are the nominees:
