2012 People’s Choice: TV Nominees

Here are the TV Nominees:

Favorite Network TV Drama

  1. The Good Wife
  2. Grey’s Anatomy
  3. House
  4. Supernatural
  5. Vampire Diaries
Winner: Grey’s has always been a favorite, but House was the winner last year. Plus the Good Wife has the Golden Globe acclaim.
My Choice: Grey’s Anatomy

Favorite TV Drama Actor

  1. David Boreanaz
  2. Hugh Laurie
  3. Ian Somerhalder
  4. Nathan Fillion
  5. Patrick Dempsey
Winner: Nathan Fillion needs his due(as well as co-star Stana Katic) as he has rocked the role as Castle for over 3 seasons. Perennial Fav. Dempsey or Laurie could steal the statue though.
My Pick: Nathan Fillion

Favorite TV Drama Actress

  1. Blake Lively
  2. Ellen Pompeo
  3. Emily Deschanel
  4. Eva Longoria
  5. Nina Dobrev
Winner: Eva could pull away this year… Desperate Housewives has alway been seen as a prime time “soap” but its in its final season and Eva needs her dues.
My Pick: Same

Favorite Cable TV Drama

  1. Dexter
  2. Game of Thrones
  3. Pretty Little Liars
  4. True Blood
  5. White Collar
Winner: This one is a tough call, Dexter did win the TV Obsession Award last year against all the same nominees except Game of Thrones which could be the series that takes it away from Dex. My favorite isn’t even up there (Boardwalk Empire)

Favorite Network TV Comedy

  1. Big Bang Theory
  2.  GLEE
  3. How I Met Your Mother
  4. Modern Family
  5. 2 & Half Men
Winner: The 5 Exact same nominees are back again for Round 2. Will GLEE win again or will fellow Emmy winner Modern Family win, but it could be the last round between these 5 as some tough competition will be coming up from the New Comedy category in 2013
My Pick: Big Bang Theory

Favorite TV Comedy Actor

  1. Alec Baldwin
  2. Chris Colfer
  3. Cory Monteith
  4. Jim Parsons
  5. Neil Patrick Harris
Its the funny man category and last years winner is back(Neil Patrick Harris). All 5 have the potential to win, but Jim Parsons has been the man to beat lately, but the wild card in this is GLEE Star and Canadian Cory Monteith.
My Pick: Jim Parsons, but I have a feeling Patrick Harris could repeat.

Favorite TV Comedy Actress

  1. Courtney Cox
  2. Jane Lynch
  3. Kaley Cuoco
  4. Lea Michele
  5. Tina Fey
Its the ladies turn and some familiar names are back again such as the 2011 winner in Jane Lynch and she looks to be the woman to beat, but don’t count out Fey even though 30 Rock isn’t as huge as GLEE.
My Pick: Tina Fey

Favorite Cable TV Comedy

  1. Hot In Cleveland
  2. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
  3. Nurse Jackie
  4. Royal Pains
  5. Weeds
Cable TV category’s are always the toughest to call due to the fact that not everyone has access to these shows even though some cable TV shows are the best out there. Hot In Cleveland has gotten runs on network channels and Royal Pains was the most watched of all of the nominees.
My Pick: Nurse Jackie
Favorite TV Competition Show
  1. American Idol
  2. America’s Got Talent
  3. Dancing With the Stars
  4. So You Think You Can Dance
  5. The Voice
The Voice is the new kid on the block replacing Hell’s Kitchen from last years nominees and it could be the one to steal the award away from American Idol.
My Pick: The Voice
Favorite TV Crime Drama
  1. Bones
  2. Castle
  3. Criminal Minds
  4. CSI: Las Vegas
  5. NCIS
Last years winner Lie to Me isn’t even on the air anymore, so its a wide open category. NCIS is the ratings favorite, CSI the old and wise show and Castle the new kid. Could Castle of only 3 full seasons steal the show? NCIS goes home with the award.
My Pick: Castle
Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show
  1. Fringe
  2. Supernatural
  3. True Bloods
  4. The Vampire Diaries
  5. The Walking Dead
This is a tough one as the only show listed that I watch or have seen is The Walking Dead and True Bloods are the leaders of the pack. Cable TV may win it again, but The Vampitre Diaries is right there from all the Twilighters.
My Pick: The Walking Dead
Favorite Day Time TV Show Host
  1. Al Roker, Matt Lauer, Ann Curry Savannah Guthrie & Natalie Morales                      (The Today Show)
  2. Anderson Cooper (Anderson)
  3. Ellen Degeneres ( The Ellen Degeneres Show)
  4. Kelly Ripa, Regis Philbin (Live With Regis and Kelly)
  5. Rachel Ray(Rachel Ray Show)
They have broken the TV Talk Show Host catagory into two for 2012 and Ellen loves it! The perennial winner will try to get that People’s Choice Award but Regis and Kelly are in the way as there fans would love to see Regis go out on top.
My Pick: Ellen Degeneres Show
Favorite Late Night TV Host
  1. Conan O’Brien
  2. David Letterman
  3. Jay Leno
  4. Jimmy Fallon
  5. Jimmy Kimmel
The winner of the TV Host cat. last year is back in the new Late Night Cat. A lot of fans are still mad over what happened with NBC and the Tonight Show but his new show is on Cable and not network TV. Look for the younger generation to speak up and announce the King of Night(at least for now)
Favorite TV Guest Star
  1. Gwyneth Paltrow (GLEE)
  2. Jim Carrey ( The Office)
  3. Katy Perry (How I Met Your Mother)
  4. Kristin Chenoweth (GLEE)
  5. Michael J. Fox (The Good Wife)
All five of the guest appearances were the best of the year. Michael J. Fox was the only one to dip into a drama series with his appearance on the The Good Wife but the two GLEE appearances stole there respective nights.
My Pick: Kristin Chenoweth (GLEE) although Fox is the wild card
Favorite TV Celebrity Star
  1. Gene Simmons
  2. Giulianna Rancic
  3. Kathy Griffin
  4. Kim Kardashian
  5.  Tia and Tamara Mowry
If these nominations had been announced 2-3 weeks ago I would have been calling for a Gene Simmons win, but after all the Kardashian drama which included a trending Twitter topic of #thingslongerthenkimsmarriage I have a feeling the Kardashian is taking home the trophy.
Favorite New TV Drama
  1. A Gifted Man
  2. Grimm
  3. Hart of Dixie
  4. Once Upon a Time
  5. Pan Am
  6. Person of Interest
  7. Prime Suspect
  8. Revenge
  9. Ringer
  10. The Secret Circle
  11. Terra Nova
  12. Unforgettable
Two of the biggest category’s are the new TV series cat. Once Upon a Time and Terra Nova are surprises as there series have just started. Grimm was one of the critically disliked show on this list. Pan Am is the most similar to a show you would find on Cable TV. This Cat. will truly tell us who the fav show is. Its too early in the TV game to for shows to be picked up/cancelled unless truly devastating. Next Year will tell us who survives
My Pick: Pan Am
Favorite New TV Comedy
  1. 2 Broke Girls
  2. Allen Gregory
  3. Last Man Standing
  4. Man Up
  5. New Girl
  6. Suburgatory
  7. Up All Night
  8. Whitney
Last Man Standing is the newest kid on the block only premiering 2 weeks ago, but the fact Tim Allen stars in the show doesn’t hurt. 2 Broke Girls and New Girl are the critic’s favorites, but Up All Night has been getting the viewers and has the comedy stars.
My Pick: 2 Broke Girls
