After weeks of voting on which celebs should make the cut to be nominees in the 2015 People's Choice Awards, the ballot has been crafted and the nominees have been announced.
Anna Faris and Allison Janney, stars of the CBS sitcom Mom, hosted the grand announcement, held at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles. The duo were joined by other TV stars, including Katharine McPhee and Dylan McDermott, to present the long list of categories and nominees.
In movies, 22-year-old Shailene Woodley is the clear front-runner with four nominations, while Sam Smith is leading the music pack with four nominations of his own. Not to be outdone, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale has secured nominations in both TV and music categories.
Now, it's time to vote again, this time for the winners. Voting ends December 4, and the winners will be announced at the People's Choice Awards ceremony on January 17, 2015. Faris and Janney will also host the awards ceremony.
