The fall awards season is gearing up to be a big one. Summer’s ending with the Teen Choice Awards and the Video Music Awards, while fall is getting ready for the American Music Awards and the People’s Choice Awards.
The People’s Choice Awards has been around since 1975, running on CBS before making the switch to E! in 2018. The show will be returning to the entertainment network for the second year in a row on November 10th.
The PCAs are known for having fans submit their favorites for nominations for a limited period of time before the actual nominations are out. This year, they’re doing it again. Starting August 12-16, fans are able to submit their top picks in television, movies, music, and pop culture during the fan-favorite nomination phase.
Fans will be able to voice their opinions on who should be nominated for the 43 categories on Monday, August 12th starting at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET at the official PCA website. Submissions will be open all week until Friday, Aug. 16 at 8:59 p.m. PT/11:59 p.m. ET.
Each person can cast up to 25 submissions per day, per category during the fan favorite nomination phase. So if one is torn on who should be nominated for a certain category, no problem.
Official voting starts on Wednesday, September 4, with the top eight nominees being announced in all 43 categories. Last year, K-Pop group BTS and Freeform series Shadowhunters took home four awards each, earning the most for the night. Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War was nominated for the most at six total.
The People’s Choice Awards will air on Sunday, November 10th at 9/8c on E!. Nicki Minaj with Tyga, Rita Ora and John Legend performed at last year’s show, however, performers for this year have yet to be announced. There was no host for the 2018 ceremony, so there’s no telling if the same will happen this year.
