Teen Celebrity Shameless Promotion Awards, I Mean Choice Awards
The ballot for the Teen Choice Awards is out. The show, which will air in August and will be hosted by the Jonas Brothers, is bascially a giant promotional tool for teen stars. Disney isn't hosting the award show, but they might as well be. The Jonas Brothers aren't just hosting, they're NOMINATED for more than one award (not that this is new, Hilary Duff and Miley Cyrus have both hosted AND won awards in the past-and both are Disney bred talent). Miley Cyrus has TEN, that's right TEN, nominations ranging from Best Actress to Best Female Artist. The uber-popular teen film Twilight has also racked up ten nominations and stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are sure to take home an award or two. Other Disney products like Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato appear on the ballot and will likely gain some ground over the heavy favorites thanks to their heavily promotoed new movie airing on the Disney Channel later this month.
The teen choice awards truly are by teen choice. The log in website requires a date of birth and won't let anyone that isn't a true "teenage" engage in voting (that is unless they make up a date of birth within the teen range).
Miley Cyrus has already promoted the voting and awards show on her Twitter page: "i still cant believe im up for all the teen choice awards! please please please vote! :)"
