'Vampire Diaries,' 'Grey's Anatomy' Top People's Choice Award Nominees

It is the considerable opinion of BuddyTV that the people should not be allowed to vote. This morning the 2011 People's Choice Award nominees were announced and the choices are less than inspired. Sure, like a broken clock, some of the choices show an impressive exhibition of taste (nominating Ian Somerhalder's highly entertaining performance on The Vampire Diaries), but mostly, it's an embarrassment.

You can see the full list of nominees below, but here are my top five objections:

-Gossip Girl has three nominations. Even when people actually liked it and it was actually good, it didn't deserve three nominations. In particular, the suggestion that Blake Lively and Chace Crawford are "actors" is an insult to the word itself.

-The people clearly don't understand the definition of the word "obsession," because as entertaining as shows like Burn Notice and White Collar are, I doubt their fans will be boiling rabbits anytime soon.

-The people owe an apology to Daniel Tosh for suggesting that his show is a guilty pleasure and lumping it in with Jersey Shore and the Real Housewives. Tosh.0 is very funny and the pleasure it provides should not cause guilt.

-Why would anyone want to be a part of Charlie Sheen's TV family?

-If you're going to bother having a category for TV doctors, the least you can do is choose from more than just two shows.

-Nominating Britney Spears for her pointless glorified cameo on Glee is crazier than anything she's ever done.

However, to prove that I don't completely hate the people, I will commend the People's Choice Awards for nominating shows other awards ignore like The Vampire Diaries, Lie to Me, Bones, So You Think You Can Dance and the entire Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show category.
