The 2017 Teen Choice Awards “First Wave” Nominations Have Just Been Announced
As our days heat up with summer fashion, summer recipes, and even summer camps for grown ups, the season’s sizzling awards shows are getting into gear. That includes the 2017 Teen Choice Awards, which have just revealed the first wave of their nominations.
It’ll be one heck of a Pretty Little Liars face-off when it comes to Choice Drama TV Actress, as all five of the ladies fill the category (plus Bella Thorne). We can’t wait to see the reaction when *that* particular award is announced. It could cause drama that’s worthy of the show itself.
Beyond that, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson showed some serious force by turning up in three separate categories for his work in Moana, The Fate of the Furious, AND Baywatch, while Hailee Steinfeld matched his impressive feat with three different mentions of her own.
Emma Watson is standing strong with nominations for both Choice Fantasy Movie Actress for her now-iconic role as Belle in Beauty & the Beast as well as Choice Drama Movie Actress for her part in The Circle. These are just a few of the exciting stars who have nabbed nominations and will surely show up for this year’s awards action.
