Teen Choice Award nominations pit Zayn Malik against One Direction
The Teen Choice Awards have revealed the first round of nominees for 2015, and they’re particularly cruel for Directioners: Both Zayn Malik and One Direction are nominated separately for the “Choice Male Hottie” award.
How will the members of One Direction feel if Zayn wins? How will Zayn feel if One Direction wins? What if this splits the Directioners vote and the “Choice Male Hottie” trophy goes to somebody like Ryan Guzman? (Side note: Really? Ryan Guzman? The guy who gives Jennifer Lopez a first edition copy of The Iliad in The Boy Next Door?)
In non-One Direction related news, Furious 7 leads the movie categories with five nominations, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, and Pitch Perfect 2 each have four. The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars snagged the most TV nominations (five), and Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and Iggy Azalea lead the music categories.
