    Teen Choice Award Nominations: Did The Hunger Games Top Twilight?

    Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Pattinson, Ian Somerhalder, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber

    Can we even call The Hunger Games' Katniss-Peta-Gale question a love triangle anymore if it's not called out to compete against Twilight's famed love triangle?

    The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part I leads the movie field with five nominations heading into the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, while The Hunger Games and The Avengers are a close second with four apiece.

    So, where did Katniss & Co. go wrong?

    Breaking Dawn and The Hunger Games matched up category for category—Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy Movie, Choice Movie Actress: Sci-Fi/Fantasy (Kristen Stewart versus Jennifer Lawrence), Choice Book—except for one. While Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are both up for Choice Movie Actor: Sci-Fi/Fantasy, only Josh Hutcherson got the nod from his film.

    Poor, pretty Liam Hemsworth, forced to fend for himself in the Choice Male Hottie category against Pattinson, Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling and Ian Somerhalder.

    Speaking of which, The Vampire Diaries leads all comers from every medium with six nominations, including Choice TV Show: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi for Somerhalder and Paul Wesley and Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi for Nina Dobrev and Kat Graham.

    Along with his hottie nod, Bieber collected nominations for Choice Male Artist, Choice Male Fashion Icon(!), and his "Boyfriend" is up for Choice Single by a Male Artist. His high-profile Twitter status has also qualified him for the Choice Twit category, where he'll tweet off against Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, Demi Lovato and Ryan Seacrest.

    And the Biebs leads all the fellas—including R.Pattz, Somerhalder and Gosling—with five nominations for his multiplatform choiceness. Meanwhile, his similarly choice girlfriend, Selena Gomez, squares off against Miley, Katy Perry, Kate Upton and Rihanna in the Female Hottie category.

    Jennifer Lopez can apparently do no wrong at anything she puts her mind to, either. She leads all the ladies with five nominations, for Choice Female Fashion Icon, Choice Female TV Personality, Choice Female Artist, Choice Single by a Female Artist for "Dance Again" and Choice Movie Actress: Comedy for What to Expect When You're Expecting.

    The 2012 Teen Choice Awards will air live July 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
