The first wave of nominations for the Teen Choice Awards were announced today, and Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries lead the pack with an impressive five nominations each. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire follows closely behind with four nominations.

Pretty Little Liars was nominated in the categories of Choice TV Show: Drama, Choice TV Actor: Drama (Ian Harding, Keegan Allen), and Choice TV Actress: Drama (Troian Bellisario, Lucy Hale), while The Vampire Diaries was nominated for Choice TV Show: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi (Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley), and Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi (Kat Graham, Nina Dobrev).

Other nominees include Beyoncé (Choice Female Artist, Choice Female Hottie), Selena Gomez (Choice Female Hottie, Choice Smile), and One Direction (Choice Music Group, Choice Male Hottie). The most intriguing race, though, may be in the most obscure category: Choice Smile, where exes Harry Styles and Taylor Swift are up against each other. (Styles may have the slight edge, as he won the award last year.) The nominations for brothers Chris and Liam Hemsworth in the Choice Movie Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi category (for Thor: The Dark World and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, respectively) could also add some intrigue to the 2014 ceremony.

Fans ages 13 to 19 can vote once per day in each category for their favorite Teen Choice nominees at beginning today. The Teen Choice Awards airs August 10 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX. Hosts, performers, presenters and more nominees, who will be announced shortly—but for now, see the full list of wave one nominations below.
