The Teen Choice Awards are just around the corner, the special event is one of the few award-shows smart enough to air during the summer months when nothing else is on. The LIVE show shared a new wave of nominees this morning, and you should find a few of your favorites on the list.

Leading the television category with seven nods is “Pretty Little Liars” (which is ending this year), followed by “The Flash,” with four. FOX’s “Lethal Weapon,” “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “This Is Us” and “The Vampire Diaries” each received three nominations this year.

On the movies side “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” leads the Teen Choice 2017 film category with five nominations and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” “The Fate of the Furious” and “Power Rangers” each have four. Musical artist Harry Styles tops the music category with three nominations. Additionally, two new categories have been added to this year’s ballot: Choice Throwback TV Show and Choice Latin Artist.

The network has not confirmed the host(s), performers, presenters and additional nominees at this time, but more information on those topics will be announced soon.

Voting will officially open at 5:00 PM PT tonight via TeenChoice.com and Twitter. Starting tonight through Thursday, June 22 at 9:00 PM PT, fans are allowed 10 votes per category, per day, per platform user ID, for their favorite TEEN CHOICE 2017 Wave One nominees.

If you want to vote for your favorites via Twitter this year, you can tweet a category hashtag with the nominee’s name (either @nominee or if the nominee does not have a Twitter account use #nominee). You may only vote for one TEEN CHOICE nominee per Tweet, so don’t go crazy and vote for multiple winners in one Tweet hoping for extra votes. If you want to take the simpler route, you can just go onto the official website and vote for your favorites in each of the categories.
