People’s Choice Awards 2016: Full List of Nominees
They say good things come to those who wait — and this is definitely a moment fans have been waiting for!
Nominees for People’s Choice Awards 2016 were announced earlier today at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles. With more than 72 million votes cast across music, movies, TV, and digital, the run-up to the 2016 show is already shaping up to be incredibly contentious. Making the race for a coveted trophy even more exciting? A number of nominees snagged multiple votes.
Among them is People’s Choice Awards first-timer, The Weeknd, who leads the list of nominees with a whopping five nods, including “Favorite Male Artist” and “Favorite Album” for Beauty Behind the Madness. On the flip side, Madonna, who is a two-time People’s Choice Awards winner, is nominated for both “Favorite Music Icon,” which pits her against Paul McCartney, Prince,Steven Tyler, and Stevie Wonder, and “Favorite Female Artist,” a category which finds her facing off against Demi Lovato, Lana Del Rey, Selena Gomez, and Taylor Swift.
As far as triple threats are concerned however, that honor goes solely to Dwayne Johnson, the only nominee to receive recognition across three different genres. Johnson, aka “The Rock,” is nominated in movies for “Favorite Action Movie Actor,” in TV for “Favorite Cable TV Actor,” and in digital for “Favorite Social Media Celebrity.”
Meanwhile, though Grey’s Anatomy lost McDreamy this year, it seems to have gained even more love from fans. The series is the most-nominated TV show, with an impressive six nods. Coming in just slightly above that is Avengers: Age of Ultron, the top movie nominee with a total of seven nods.
