Peoples’ Choice Awards Once Again Give People Chance To Act Like They Care About Music

Nov 10th, 2008 // 2 Comments

After having its ceremony called off because of the Writers’ Guild of America strike last year, the Peoples’ Choice Awards are back–and they’re ready to honor Maroon 5 and Rascal Flatts all over again. Yes, those two bands are repeat nominees in the “Best Group” category, although they’ll have to fend off Coldplay to take home the honors from the click-happy residents of America. Other multiple music-related nominees include Rihanna, Chris Brown, and Alicia Keys–those three are also named in the all-encompassing “Favorite Star 35 & Under” category, which I guess is in honor of the ceremony’s 35th year. Also, somehow that awful Fergie track from Sex And The City got nominated in the Favorite Song From A Movie category, although I reckon her Prada and Gucci-clad self will get stomped by Meryl Streep’s rendition of “Mamma Mia.” Full list of nominees after the jump!

Nominees Announced For 2009 People’s Choice Awards [Zap2It]

  1. Chris Molanphy

    They did get the breakdown right on the two Rihanna songs, R&B vs. pop. So…um, there’s that.

  2. Rock You Like An Iracane

    Sweet Jesus, “Good Life” vs. “Lollipop” vs. “Low” is like “Billie Jean” vs. “The Future’s So Bright” vs. “The Final Countdown,” at least on merit.
