People's Choice Awards nominations 2012

November 8, 2011 |  2:57 pm

Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks are among the 2012 People's Choice nominees
Moviegoers weren't interested in shelling out their hard-earned money to see Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks in "Larry Crowne" at the box office over the summer.

But judging by today's People's Choice Awards nominations, the two are still some of the most popular stars in the country. Both Roberts and Hanks secured nods for the 2012 ceremony, whose winners will be voted upon by the public. Also among the actors and actresses selected as fan favorites were Johnny Depp, Jennifer Aniston, Daniel Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson.

There was, predictably, much love for both the "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" franchises: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2" was nominated as movie of the year, favorite action movie, favorite book adaptation and favorite ensemble movie cast; Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton were all deemed some of the most popular stars younger than 25; Taylor Lautner, meanwhile, earned a nod for favorite action star.
