That’s right, The CW hit The Vampire Diaries it already leading the pack, earning an impressive six nominations, surpassing the likes of American Idol and Justin Bieber who each received five nods, respectively.

Ryan Gosling, 21 Jump Street, and those wildly popular Avengers also get a few well deserved nods amid the slew of movie categories.
