'Alice in Wonderland,' 'Twilight Saga' among People's Choice Award nominees

November 9, 2010 | 11:34 am


For the 37th year in a row, the People's Choice Awards are giving voice to the masses who feel that the Oscars, Golden Globes and all those year-end best lists have gotten just a bit too highfalutin'. The nominees for the 2011 People's Choice Awards were announced Tuesday and though the critics may have snubbed Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" and "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," both films received multiple nominations, along with their stars, Johnny Depp, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

Along with the usual categories (Favorite Movie, Favorite TV Comedy, etc.) this year's awards add some new races, including Favorite TV Doctor (no Katherine Heigl here) and Favorite Viral Video Star (fingers crossed for the Giant Double Rainbow guy).

According to People's Choice, more than 35 million online votes were cast to determine the new categories and select this year's nominees. Voting for the winners begins Tuesday at awards will be handed out Jan. 5 and televised on CBS.
