This year’s Teen Choice Awards, which honors the best films, music and television, nominees were recently released, and the movie to receive the most nods was none other than the third version of the “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” with 12, including best sci-fi fantasy film.

The popular singing comedy on the Fox network, “Glee,” snagged the second most nominations with nine, one of which is best TV comedy.

A couple rated-R movies also made the cut with a couple nods among them, including “The Hangover Part II” and “Bridesmaids.” Neither of these received the best reviews, but they’re nonetheless two of the most popular movies of the summer.

In the music categories, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber all received six nominations. Additionally, Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga and Cee Lo Green also received a nod each.

These recognition awards, which are chosen based on how many votes teens submit online, will be presented to its recipients on August 7. The trophy is the custom-made surfer board, which is has been since the award show was established.
