Lea Michele and Glee Co-Stars Dominate Teen Choice Award Nominations!
The 2013 Teen Choice Awards might as well be called the Glee Choice Awards, since the musical series completely dominated the newest wave of Teen Choice nominations!
Fox announced the latest Wave Two nominees for this year's Teen Choice Awards on July 1, and Glee stars were nominated in almost every TV category!
The Glee cast members who were just announced as nominees are — deep breath, as it's a long list! — Becca Tobin (Kitty) as Choice TV Villain, Chord Overstreet (Sam) as Choice TV Male Scene Stealer, Heather Morris (Brittany) as Choice TV Female Scene Stealer, Lea Michele (Rachel) as Candie's Choice Style Icon, and both Melissa Benoist (Marley) and Blake Jenner (Ryder) as Choice TV Breakout Star. Talk about an embarrassment of riches!
As if that's not enough, the show had already received a slew of nominations in Wave One last month, including Chris Colfer (Kurt) for Choice TV Actor: Comedy, Lea for Choice TV Actress: Comedy, and the show itself for Choice TV Show: Comedy. It's worth pointing out that Glee was surprisingly snubbed when the 2012 Emmy nominations were announced last year, so it's nice to know that the show still has such a passionate fanbase of younger viewers.
Now the next step is making sure that the show gets plenty of wins as well! Teens can vote once a day for their favorites at www.teenchoiceawards.com from now until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, August 10. The show airs on Fox at 8 p.m. on August 11.
We're excited about every single one of the show's Teen Choice nominations, but we're squealing the most about the fact that Melissa and Blake — who are rumored to be a real-life couple — were both nominated in the same category. So freakin' cute!
So make sure to rock the vote — and hopefully we'll all be as gleeful as we are now when the show actually airs! We just hope no one has to rig the voting to make this happen, as Rachel tried to do when Kurt ran for student-body office in Season 3. Keep it clean, everyone!
