'Twilight' dominates Teen Choice Awards nominations

Posted on

The sun has set (or risen?) on Summit Entertainment’s venerable vampire series — but even though it, like Robsten, is officially kaput, Twilight still holds a hypnotic power over people of a certain age. (That age is “young.”)

The last installment of the blood-sucking saga dominates the “first wave” of nominees at this year’s Teen Choice Awards, which single out the movies, TV series, music, fashion, comedians, athletes, and performers that resonate most with today’s 13- through 19-year-olds. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 snagged seven nods, nine if you include star Taylor Lautner’s individual nominations for Choice Male Hottie and Choice Smile.

But even if you’re over the Cullens, there must be something you like on this list — the nominees range from Argo to Zooey Deschanel, and they cover everything from mainstream action movies to “Choice Electronic Dance Music Artist.” A full list of first-wave nominees is below; starting now, fans of an appropriate age can vote once per category each day at the TCA’s website. Additional nominees, as well as performers, presenters, and a host will be announced soon. The two-hour awards ceremony will air live Sunday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
