People’s Choice TV Nominations Dominated By ‘Glee’ and ‘Vampire Diaries’

Kurt Chris Colfer People's Choice Nominations GleeThe 2012 People’s Choice Awards are on their way and here’s the proof: the nominees. As usual, teen-skewing series like Glee and The Vampire Diaries dominated the nominations, but a few more mature candidates like The Good Wife and The Walking Dead make a few appearances as well. In addition to half the cast of Glee getting some nomination love, newly announced People Choice host, Kaley Cuoco also earned herself a nod for her work on The Big Bang Theory. Plus, the great thing about these awards is that there are enough categories to give plenty of shows a chance for some recognition — they even separate network shows from cable show to even the playing field.

Fans can voice their choices in all categories starting today and ending Dec. 6 via basically every internet avenue available. The Favorite New TV Drama and Favorite New TV Comedy will stay open until the night of the awards, Jan. 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. Votes are accepted at the People’s Choice Awards website, on Facebook, Twitter and via mobile devices.
