The people have spoken, and this year's nominees for the People's Choice Awards are an interesting mix of popular programs and CW favorites.


Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


Glee tops all TV shows with seven nominations, including individual recognition for Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele, Jane Lynch and guest stars Gwyenth Paltrow and Kristin Chenoweth. Surprisingly, the CW's Vampire Diaries was the next most popular show with four nominations, including ones for stars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev.

A number of shows scored three nominations, including How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy and Bones. Surprisingly, Supernatural was able to score a nomination for Favorite Network TV Drama, competing against The Vampire Diaries, Grey's Anatomy, House and The Good Wife.

In my favorite ridiculous nominations, USA's Royal Pains is up for Favorite Cable Comedy, despite the fact that it isn't really that much of a comedy.

The most impressive nominee might be Katy Perry, who picked up four nominations in the music categories, plus nominations for TV (for guest starring on How I Met Your Mother) and film (for providing the voice of Smurfette).

Here is the complete list of nominees for the 2012 People's Choice Awards. You can vote for the winners at the official website and see who wins on Wednesday, January 11 at 9pm on CBS in a ceremony hosted by The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco.
