LOS ANGELES, Jan. 4, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — The nominees for the 2016 People’s Choice Awards were announced this morning by actress Jane Lynch.

Notable nominees were The Weeknd, leading the list with a whopping five nominations, including Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Album for “Beauty Behind the Madness.”

Madonna, who is a two-time People’s Choice Awards winner, is nominated for both Favorite Music Icon, which pits her against Paul McCartney, Prince, Steven Tyler, and Stevie Wonder, and Favorite Female Artist, a category which finds her facing off against Demi Lovato, Lana Del Rey, Selena Gomez, and Taylor Swift.

Actor Dwayne Johnson is a triple nominee and the only nominee in three different categories. Johnson, aka The Rock, is nominated in movies for Favorite Action Movie Actor, in TV for Favorite Cable TV Actor, and in digital for Favorite Social Media Celebrity.

With six nominations, “Grey’s Anatomy” is the most-nominated TV show and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is the top movie nominee with a total of seven nominations.
