Lots Of Ugly Betty Noms For Teen Choice Awards!
June 15, 2009 by Tom
Fox announced the first wave of nominees for its annual Teen Choice Awards, and there was lots of love for Ugly Betty:
The show was nominated for Choice TV Show - Comedy (along with Hannah Montana, How I Met Your Mother, iCarly, and The Office).
America Ferrera was nominated as Choice TV Actress - Comedy (along with Miranda Cosgrove, Miley Cyrus, Jenna Fisher, and Eva Longoria Parker)
Vanessa Williams was nominated for her portrayal of Wilhelmina in the Choice TV Villian category (along with Spencer Pratt, Zachary Quinto, Michael Rosenbaum and Ed Westwick).
Michael Urie received a nom in the “Choice TV: Fab-u-lous” category. His competition is Perez Hilton, Carson Kressley, Rex Lee and Miss Jay.
Urie also recieved a nomination for Choice TV: Sidekick (along with Jake T. Austin, Allison Mack, Jennette McCurdy, and Emily Osment).
Tony Plana was nominated in one of my favorite categories: Choice TV: Parental Unit (along with Billy Ray Cyrus,Rob Estes and Lori Loughlin, Molly Ringwald and Mark Derwin, and Matthew Settle).
I love it! And this means I’ll definitely watch the awards show this year (Airing Monday, August 10 from 8-10 on FOX).
Of course, in the past, All the nominations for Ugly Betty had a hard time overcoming the lure of Hannah Montana to the target demographic, although based on my daughter’s taste, I’d say iCarly is stealing some of Miley’s thunder.
The best chance, I think, is Michael Urie’s nominations. He really deserves the “Fab-u-lous” win, if I’m reading the meaning of the category correctly. I mean, hasn’t Marc been incredible this year? He’s practically become a co-star, all the while retaining his, er, fab-u-lousness.
And Urie’s sidekick nomination is a no-brainer. He’s deserved that since season 1.
Congratulations to all the Ugly Betty nominees!
