The final wave of Teen Choice Award categories are out, and it looks like social media is going to be a major force to be reckoned with this year. The awards, which honor the biggest winners in pop culture, is judged by teen viewers, so it’s no surprise that they’ve added slew of new categories to honor the best of the web.
The new categories include nods for your favorite web stars both male and female as well as by genre. With categories specifically devoted to comedy, music, beauty and gaming, the nomination list reads like a who’s who of YouTube celebs. The TCAs also rolled out the very YouTube-friendly category, Best Collaboration (Troyler boyfriend tag, anyone?).
This year’s TCAs also honor the superstars of Twitter, Instagram and Vine, and the nominee list is full of celebs and social media favorites. There’s even a special category for the most fanatical fan army.
So far, the leader of the pack looks to be Vine music heartthrob Shawn Mendes, who scored an unprecedented three noms for Choice Web Star: Male, Choice Web Star: Music, and Choice Viner. Shawn’s fans already took his album to the top of the iTunes charts in record time, but can they help him conquer the Teen Choice Awards?
A full list of all the nominees can be found below. You can also head over VOTE for your faves!
