Teen Choice Awards Choose Kaley Cuoco to Host, Reveal 'Best Vampire' Nominees

Get More: Awards, News

The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco has been chosen to host the Teen Choice 2011 awards ceremony, to be broadcast Aug. 7 on Fox.

The show also announced that Selena Gomez and OneRepublic (which, my square self has been informed, is not the clothing chain) have been added to the slate of musical guests.

And in its final bit of housekeeping, Teen Choice 2011 revealed the contenders for “Choice Vampire.” And they are…
* Nina Dobrev, The Vampire Diaries
* Ian Somerhalder, The Vampire Diaries
* Paul Wesley, The Vampire Diaries
* Robert Pattinson, Twilight Something
* Nikki Reed, Twilight, Too
* Alexander Skarsgård, True Blood

That final surge, folks, gives Vampire Diaries a 12-10 lead over Glee as far as TV’s most-nominated program. Because you know you were keeping track. Ballots can be cast here (if you are young enough, that is).

    • are you forgetting that Nina plays two characters on VD? Elena is the doppleganger of Katherine, who IS a vampire!

      • I know….just had a memory slip and my mind just went straight to thinking of her as Elena.

  • Anyone BUT Robert Pattinson and Nikki Reed. The Vampires in Twilight are NOT, i repeat, NOT real vampires. I mean, the author chose to ignore the mythology that surrounds vampires. Where are their goddamn
    fangs? AND VAMPIRES DO NOT SPARKLE!!!!!!!!!!!! To all teenage girls: If you are smart and have any descency, DON’T VOTE FOR TWILIGHT!

    • REAL VAMPIRES? As if such a thing actually exists! I can’t help laughing at people who act like you.

      Hands down Nina Dobrev or Ian Smoerhalder should win this!

  • I hope Someone from Vampire Diaries wins. Would love for it to be Ian. But Nina did Katharine so well I think she deserves it too.

    • I agree i hope nina gets it or some one from the vampire diaries

  • Just because they sparkle, they’re not vampires? Folks, I hate to break it to you, but even if the vamps in Twilight burned in the sun, they’re a terrible excuse for vampires. As a matter of fact, each entry on this list is. There’s not a single vampire on the ballot. VD and TB don’t have decent vampires either.

    Call me when a vampire is nominated that’s actually SCARY. Like vampires should be.

    • Why don’t you drop a few names who deserve to be nominated instead of whining?

  • Well Erick is really hot, the Twilight vampires are so so lame they sparks and worse chimes, there is no competition, Stefan is handsome, but no one can resist the bad guy like Damon Salvatore

  • Guys remember to vote for Demi Lovato, she really deserves to win

  • I think that Vampire Diaries and True Blood are the only contenders, because even if they’re sexy, they’re dangerous and evil, not as sparkling vamps who drink animal blood.

  • If ‘Twilight: Eclipse’ sweeps the Teen Choice Awards, then ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1′ should sweep the Razzie Awards. To make sure it does sweep the Razzie Awards, go to razzies.com and find out how to join.

  • Should teens even be watching True Blood?

    Comment by Tabitha – July 26, 2011 12:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • My thoughts exactly! This worries me….
      Next year, they’d better nominate Colin Farrell.

    • 18-19 year olds can watch it. But I get what you’re saying.

  • ROBERT PATTINSON, KRISTIN STEWART AND TAYLOR LAUTNER ARE THE WORST ACTORS EVER!

    Comment by Taryn – July 26, 2011 03:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • True blood is hands down the best show ever. Having vampires in it is just an added bonus. Alexander Skarsgard is oh so yummy and this year we get to see a different side of him showing he truly us an all around actor!

  • TB sucks… Twilight can‘t deserve to win. TVD is the BEST. Ian and Nina are amazing actors…

    Comment by LoveSmolder – July 29, 2011 10:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • No love for Caroline! Shes the best character on TVD and an awesome vampire! So much easier to watcher her then wooden Nina, who seems to play Katherine and Elena with the exact same accent stance and facial expressions, they might be doppelgänger but that means they should only look the same! If she needs to learn how to be two diff characters she should check out BTVS S3 episode Dopplegangland and watch Alyson Hannigan play two completely different Willow’s!!!!!
