It's time once again to do your patriotic duty and take part in the democratic process and vote for the People's Choice Awards.

"2 Broke Girls" star Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs have been announced as hosts for the upcoming 40th annual People's Choice Awards, which honor favorites in the world of TV, movies and music. 

"Fast & Furious 6," "Iron Man 3" and "Star Trek Into Darkness" are vying for "Favorite Movie," while tube favorites like "The Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones" and "The Big Bang Theory" lead the competition in the TV categories. On the music side, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Kanye West are, unsurprisingly, the big names.

Some of the event's fun categories that aren't likely to show up on Emmy ballots anytime soon include "Favorite TV Anti-Hero," "Favorite TV Bromance," "Favorite TV Gal Pals" and even "Favorite Series We Miss Most" (does "NewsRadio" count?). 

Winners will be revealed during the live broadcast of 40th annual People's Choice Awards from Nokia Theater L.A. Live on Wednesday, January 8 at 9:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

"Kat and Beth are great additions to our People's Choice family and we are excited to have them host the show,” said People’s Choice Awards executive producer Mark Burnett. "Their energy and charisma are a perfect fit for our audience."

Voting opens today for all 58 categories and will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on December 5, 2013. Cast your votes here. This may be the only chance that "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" has to win an award, so make your votes count.
