'Gossip Girl,' 'Secret Life,' 'Jersey Shore' Rule Teen Choice Award Nominations

If the children are our future, then we're screwed.  Today this year's Teen Choice Award nominees were announced, and as always, the list features some truly absurd nominees.

On the television side, Gossip Girl leads the nominees for a TV Drama despite having a subpar season and coming in as one of the CW's lowest-rated shows.  Meanwhile, a great new show like The Vampire Diaries was stuck in categories for Fantasy/Sci Fi shows, which is arguably the most interesting category since it also features Fringe, True Blood, Lost and Supernatural.

Twilight is available on Amazon Prime.


Other big TV nominees include 90210, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Jersey Shore, which pulled in four nominations, including Favorite Reality Star nominations for Pauly D, The Situation and Snooki.

For movies, the amount of categories might be larger than the number of nominees since there are Best Movie, Actor and Actress categories for Action Adventure, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Romantic Comedy, Comedy and Horror/Thriller.  In fact, Ashton Kutcher, Amanda Seyfried, Channing Tatum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kristen Bell, Kristen Stewart, Rachel McAdams, Robert Downey Jr., Robert Pattinson, Sam Worthington and Sandra Bullock are all nominated for two movie acting awards, while Zoe Saldana has three nominations (Avatar, Death at a Funeral and The Losers).

If that's not enough to make you question the Teen Choice Awards, how about the fact that Toy Story 3 is nominated for Best Animated Movie despite not even being in theaters yet?
