William Levy, Selena Gomez, J.Lo rule the 2012 Teen Choice Awards nominations!

It's almost time for the annual Teen Choice Awards! The first wave of nominees were revealed today and I'm happy to say that the Latino community is being well-represented through the likes of Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and more of our favorite Hispanic celebs!


Nominations for the two Disney starlets were announced early on. Lovato is nominated for Choice Twit among fellow avid tweeters like Ryan Seacrest, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. Meanwhile, Gomez earned three different kinds of honors, falling into the categories of Choice Female Hottie (wonder how her boyfriend, the Biebs, feels about that one?), Choice Music Group (with her band, The Scene), and Choice Single by a Group for her song "Hit the Lights."

Other Latinas were also recognized. Forbes' number one entertainer, Jennifer Lopez, was nominated four times for her participation on American Idol, her diva fashion sense, and her music. Her name appears in the categories of Female Choice Fashion Icon, Choice Single by a Female Artist (for "Dance Again" ft Pitbull, Choice Female Arist, and Choice TV: Female Personality.

Lopez will have to battle it out against Christina Aguilera, who was also named for TV Female Personality for her judging duties on The Voice. And the nominations aren't limited to reality TV shows! The one and only Sofia Vergara is nominated as Choice TV Actress: Comedy for her role as Gloria on Modern Family.

Let's not forget about the boys too! Actor Adam Rodriguez is nominated for his role on CSI: Miami. Meanwhile, two Latino cuties, Pitbull and Bruno Mars, are going up against each other in two of the same categories, Choice Single by a Male Artist (for "Give Me Everything Tonight and "It Will Rain") and Choice Male Artist. Pitbull is also nominated for Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Artist. For good reason too—he was everywhere this year!

And perhaps the most unexpected of the bunch? Our beloved Cuban heartthrob, William Levy, is nominated for Choice TV: Male Reality Star for his turn on Dancing with the Stars. Totally well-deserved!!

I can't wait to see how it all goes down and which of all these amazing celebs will take home the awards. They've all accomplished so much this year and it's great to see so many of them recognized! Of course, these are some of my favorite Hollywood stars so I guess I might be a little bit biased.
