Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton received all-genre nominations for the People’s Choice Awards 2013. Jason Aldean, who is nominated for Favorite Country Artist, joined other celebrities to reveal the news.
Fans cast more than 93 million votes to pick new categories and determine the slate. Justin Bieber, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, Channing Tatum, Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence are among the top nominees.
Fans can vote for winners without leaving their favorite social media outlets, including Facebook, which has a custom app, and Twitter, through the use of specific hashtags. This is a significant step forward for fan-voted shows, which in the past have relied mainly on website voting.
• Website – PeoplesChoice.com continues to be the main voting platform
• Facebook – Facebook.com/PeoplesChoice features a custom application where fans can personalize their voting experience and share their votes with friends.
• Twitter – Fans can cast official votes by tweeting a specific series of hashtags based on the nominee’s name and category. Details at PeoplesChoice.com/pca/vote.
• Mobile – Fans can vote in all categories on the People’s Choice Awards mobile site, and via the official voting application for Android and iOS devices.
Voting will end on Dec. 14, 2012. Winners will be revealed during the live broadcast from the Nokia Theater L.A. Live on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) on CBS.
