'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Leads People's Choice Awards Nominations


The People have spoken–and it’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” that scores big with fans who nominated the superhero flick, as well as its cast, in seven 2016 People’s Choice Awards categories.

The Marvel film, which was this summer’s third-highest grossing movie (worldwide), picked up nods for “Favorite Movie” and “Favorite Action Movie,” and the love continued for Robert Downey Jr (“Favorite Movie Actor” and “Favorite Action Movie Actor”), Scarlett Johansson (“Favorite Movie Actress” and “Favorite Action Movie Actress”) and Chris Hemsworth (“Favorite Action Movie Actor”).

Other hit films like “Jurassic World,” “Furious 7,” “Inside Out” and “Pitch Perfect 2” will vie against “Avengers” for the “Favorite Movie” honor.

More than 72 million nominations from fans for their favorites in film, television, music, video games, and social media were calculated for the upcoming award show, which announced nominees Tuesday. Voting in all categories is available at PeoplesChoice.com now through Dec. 3.

Jane Lynch will host the live program on CBS on Jan. 6 from Los Angeles.
