    Maybe it would be easier to report on who didn't make the cut.

    The nominations for the 2012 People's Choice Awards were announced this morning, and the list is definitely long (if not always distinguished).

    After all, we are talking about a show that makes a yearly effort to honor as many famous faces as possible in movies, music and TV.

    Not surprisingly, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 leads the way this time around with nine nominations, including Favorite Movie as well as acting nods for stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton.

    The final flick in the popular film franchise is competing with Bridesmaids, The Help, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon for Favorite Movie.

    And Radcliffe himself is in a pretty tough race as he goes head-to-head in the Favorite Movie Actor category with the likes of Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson and Ryan Reynolds. Seriously, people are expected to pick just one?

    On the TV side of things, the host of this year's People's Choice Awards, Kaley Cuoco, received a nod for her work on The Big Bang Theory, as did her costar Jim Parsons. Their show will also be competing for the Favorite Network TV Comedy prize against Glee, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family and Two and a Half Men.

    And there was some good news for us here at E! as Kim Kardashian, Giuliana Rancic along with Tia and Tamera Mowry (who have a show on our sister network Style) all earned Favorite TV Celebreality Star nominations. They face off against Gene Simmons and Kathy Griffin.

    As for the music world, it seems all genres are pretty much represented in the Favorite Artist categories. Blake Shelton, Bruno Mars, Eminem, Enrique Iglesias and Justin Bieber have been nominated for Favorite Male Artist while Adele, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift vie for the same prize on the ladies' side.
