The Teen Choice award nominations came out on Monday, and as many would have predicted, Twilight, High School Musical 3 and Miley Cyrus pulled in the most nominations. Brangelina also picked up nomination for “Choice Actor” and “Choice Actress”, and they’ll be going up against each other in the “Choice Celebrity Activist” category. Brad and Angelina are up against Natalie Portman, Leonardo DiCaprio and Hayden Panettiere. I bet Leo wins. Guess who the hosts of the Teen Choice Awards will be? None other than the Jonas Brothers! And they’re going to perform too! Lord, that is going to be one long night for the adults:
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still pretty cool in the eyes of teens. The two picked up two 2009 Teen Choice Awards.
Pitt is up for “Choice Movie Star: Drama” for his role as a man aging backwards in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. He faces off against Hugh Jackman (Australia); Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire); Robert Pattinson (Twilight) and Channing Tatum (Fighting).
For “Choice Movie Actress: Drama,” Jolie, who plays the mother of a kidnapped son in Changeling, competes against Nicole Kidman (Australia), Beynonce (Obsessed), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Kristen Stewart (Twilight).
Both Pitt and Jolie are also up against each other in the category of “Choice Celebrity Activist.” (Pitt and his sibs just gave 1 million to help a Missouri hospital open a new pediatric cancer center.) Also competing for the title: Leonardo DiCaprio, Hayden Panettiere and Natalie Portman.
Pitt and Jolie weren’t the only stars to get Teen Choice love. Twilight and its cast lead this year’s nominees with an impressive 12 nominations. High School Musical 3: Senior Year and its cast, Miley Cyrus and Gossip Girl and its cast each scored 10 nominations, while American Idol earned seven nods. Starting today, fans ages 13-19 can vote once each day for their favorite nominee at teenchoice.com.
The show airs Monday, Aug. 10, on FOX. The Jonas Brothers will host and perform.

I feel like we’ve already covered the Teen Choice Awards, but apparently, I was just thinking about the MTV Awards. My guess is that the Teen Choice Awards will go down a lot like the MTV Awards, though, with Twilight sweeping in the major categories. And yes, I can’t believe I’m actually handicapping the Teen choice Awards. But I’m totally right. If you go to vote on the Teen Choice site ballot thing, there’s a note that encourages teenagers to vote everyday. Twihards rule at that kind of hardcore voting.
