With awards season just around the corner, most of the major nomination lists have been released. That includes the world’s most famous popularity contest, The People’s Choice Awards (January 18th, 2017). Somehow, producers have managed to sandwich it in between more important and (slightly more) prestigious shows, like the Golden Globes and Critic’s Choice Awards.

But the difference between this show and the others is the People’s Choice is exactly that: decided by the people. Whether you live and breathe music, are more of a TV junkie, or like to find your entertainment online, this show has something for you.

This year, Stranger Things, Captain America, and Drake headline the major categories. One thing we’ve learned from years past is don’t expect a lot of upsets. For example, the Big Bang Theory has won the “Favorite TV Show” category for the past two years. So it’ll likely win again.

One category that definitely won’t see a repeat winner is “Favorite Movie Icon.” But that’s because it was just created. While it’s a great category in theory, it appears to be missing something; all five nominees are male. I’m not saying those five actors don’t deserve the title, but you can’t tell me there isn’t one actress who could fit on the list as well. Comment below on what you think.

So since there’s a ton … and I mean A TON (64!) categories, let’s just take a look at the basics..
