  15. Gage says:

    How funny that “One Direction” has copied Robert Pattinson hairstyle. Robert Pattinson definitely should be on the “male fashion” catagory. He’s the face of Dior and looks fabulous on every red carpet.

  16. It.seems.to.me.Robert.Pattinson.wasent.nomated.it’s.looks.like.his.carrer.isn’t..great.it’s.twiggs.fault.sorry.rob.but.Kristen.is.out.shinning.you.again

  17. Markus says:

    As most people (Whites and Blacks), maybe including Latino’s themselves, are not supporting those of Obvious Latino background, namely Selena Gomez, Latinos need to wake up and realize their way below everyone else status in the world. In entertainment and politics are the only real places where people have Big voices in the world, and these big voices usually come from the USA, and in the USA those of Obvious Latinos background are not liked (meaning most don’t vote for them, don’t buy nor request nor stream their music). Latinos MUST START SUPPORTING THEIR OWN IF YOU EVER WANT any sort of voice heard from you. Stop being so childish! Start supporting Selena Gomez, Victoria Justice, Christina Aguilera, Prince Royce, etc. JUST. DO. IT. NO MATTER WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE OR WHAT COUNTRY THEY–OR THEIR PARENTS, ARE FROM!!!

  18. johny says:

    I like one last time Ariana grande

  19. Adam says:

    How was Guardians of the Galaxy not nominated?

    • talia says:

      don’t know if you are being sarcastic or not but Guardians of Galaxy was released last year which is why it won’t have been nominated

  20. Alex says:

    “Furious 7” and “Empire” are both going to have a very good night.

  21. Barbeesha says:

    Aloha was nominated for a Teen Choice Award? Who the f*** nominates these things, the Hollywood Foreign Press?
