Complete List of 2018 People’s Choice Awards Finalists

It’s been a few weeks since E! announced all the potential nominees for People’s Choice Awards, and the list of finalist is finally here. A couple of surprise nominees managed to make the cut thanks to winning the public’s write-in vote.

When it comes to the movie categories, Infinity War led the way with a total of 6 nominations. It was nominated for both best movie and action movie of the year, while the stars – Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., and Scarlett Johansson – picked up nominations in acting categories. It was closely followed by Black Panther, which managed to get five nominations.

TV categories proved that the strong fan base can get you anywhere when it comes to People’s Choice Awards. Fantasy series Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments managed to score five nominations – most of them thanks to the write-in votes. Grey’s Anatomy also received five nods, including best TV show and best drama show.

Something similar happened in the musical categories, where South Korean boy band BTS managed to beat the likes of Cardi B and Camila Cabello to receive a total of four nominations.

People’s Choice Awards voting will be open until October 19 and the winners will be announced on November 11 on E!
