Truth: I love award shows. Watching celebs get all dressed up and win awards? Count me in. One thing that would make them even more awesome? If I could control who won.
So over here at Gurl, we decided to pretend that we can pick who wins what at Teen Choice™ 2012. Check out who would win these awards if Gurl.com had all the power:
Choice Movie: Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Nominees: Bones, Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, Revenge, Touch
Gurl’s Winner: Pretty Little Liars, for sure. That show had me biting my nails throughout the entire second season, and I’m counting down the days until it starts up again. It’s exciting and includes awesome fashion. Win!
Choice TV Show: Comedy
Nominees: American Idol, America’s Next Top Model, Survivor: One World, The Voice, The X Factor
Gurl’s Winner: I’m going to have to go with American Idol on this one. Between the awesome judges and the amazing talent that graced the stage, it blew us away this year. Plus, I’ll never get tired of singing competitions.
Choice Male Artist
Nominees: Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Taylor Swift
Gurl’s Winner: All of these ladies are so incredible – how could anyone pick a winner for this?! In the end, I’ll have to go with Katy Perry. Girlfriend got divorced this year and handled it without any huge public drama. Plus, she’s released two new empowering songs no one can stop listening to. She’s awesome!
Choice Music Group
Nominees: “Lonely Boy” by The Black Keys, “Paradise” by Coldplay, “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People, “We Are Young” by fun featuring Janelle Monae, “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye featuring Kimbra
Gurl’s Winner: I’m going to have to go with “Somebody That I Used To Know”. That song is impossible not to sing along to, and it’s such a great breakup song. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it.
Choice Single By A Female Artist
Nominees: Miley Cyrus, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry
Gurl’s Winner: I love the fashion sense of all these ladies, but I’d give this one to Miley. Her fashion choices have been criticized endlessly, but I still don’t get why. Miley always looks great and isn’t afraid to take risks without going too crazy, no matter what people say about her.
Choice Female Hottie
Nominees: Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling, Liam Hemsworth, Robert Pattinson, Ian Somerhalder
Gurl’s Winner: I don’t know how it’s possible to pick one hottie out of this group, but I’d have to go with Ryan Gosling. His movies are amazing and everything he does is a hit. And, I mean, the dude’s like a real-life superhero – breaking up fights and saving girls from getting hit by cars? Come on now.
Nominees: Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, Daniel Tosh, Kristen Wiig
Gurl’s Winner: All of these nominees are hysterical, but I’d give this one to Kristen Wiig. I still can’t stop laughing at Bridesmaids, and I also still haven’t gotten over the fact that she’s leaving Saturday Night Live. There’s never a time she doesn’t make people laugh.
Nominees: Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, Demi Lovato, Ryan Seacrest
Gurl’s Winner: Demi Lovato. From tweeting her personal thoughts to ranting over the Disney Channel’s unfortunate eating disorder jokes, Demi probes to be a total role model for girls everywhere. Her Twitter is just as honest and open as she is.
But these aren’t the real winners – you’ll have to tune into the show to see that! And if you want to watch it live, as in you’re actually there in the audience (who doesn’t?!), then enter this Teen.com sweepstakes for your chance to win two tickets! And if you don’t win, you can still tune in and watch the TEEN CHOICE 2012 LIVE on Sunday, July 22 at 8/7C on FOX.
