Based on national ratings averages and input from media partner TV Guide magazine, People's Choice has included 'True Blood' and 'The Vampire Diaries' among the nominees.
The vampires are feasting on the nominations list of 2010 People's Choice Awards. Announced Tuesday, November 10 at Beverly Hills' SLS Hotel, "True Blood" is among the shows gathering three nods. The CW's "The Vampire Diaries" follows next with two.
The HBO show takes in almost all the categories possible for one show to achieve, only missing the spot in Favorite Drama Actor. Meanwhile, as a newcomer "The Vampire Diaries" attains the honor to battle it out with "True Blood", "Lost", "Heroes" and "Supernatural" in the category of Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show.
However, not only the blood suckers are dominating the list but also the doctors. Representing "Grey's Anatomy" are Seattle Grace medical practitioners such as Patrick Dempsey and Katherine Heigl, and from "House M.D.", it's the chief of Princeton Plainsboro, Hugh Laurie.
In the comedy categories, this year's Emmys winner "30 Rock" fails to secure a slot in the Favorite Comedy but its stars Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey are nominated for Favorite Comedy Actor and Actress respectively. It is "How I Met Your Mother" which gets three including for Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan.
The People's Choice Awards will be broadcast live on January 6 starting at 9 P.M. ET/PT on CBS. Hosted by Queen Latifah, the event will give out the prizes in all 35 categories for TV, music, and movies which winners can be determined by online voting. There is a new category this year, Favorite Web Celeb, which nominees are Miley Cyrus, Andy Samberg, Ashton Kutcher, P. Diddy and Will Ferrell.
