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.
