Summer is coming. The weather is getting warmer, schools are almost out of session, and the latest round of Teen Choice Awards nominations is here. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials – one of our favorite movies last year – is ready to rise to the occasion, with a total of 3 nominations for the 2016 Teen Choice Awards.
So who/what has the honor of being nominated? The movie itself will be taking on some serious competition for one of the top prizes – Choice Movie: Action/Adventure – while stars Dylan O’Brien and Kaya Scodelario are in the running for Choice Movie Actor: Action/Adventure and Choice Movie Actress: Action/Adventure.
The other contenders for Choice Movie in this category are Deadpool, In the Heart of the Sea, Spectre, The Divergent Series: Allegiant, and The Jungle Book. O’Brien and Scodelario will be facing off against the stars of these films, including Chris Hemsworth, Neel Sethi, Ryan Reynolds, and Theo James in the Actor division and Charlotte Riley, Léa Seydoux, Morena Baccarin, and Shailene Woodley in the Actress division.
The first film in the series, The Maze Runner, received 5 nominations for the 2015 Teen Choice Awards – including Choice Movie: Action, Choice Movie Actor: Action, Choice Movie Actress: Action, Choice Movie: Chemistry, and Choice Movie: Breakout Star. Though it didn’t take home any Surfboard trophies, Maze Runner fans will be more determined than ever to make sure that doesn’t happen again this year.
Fans can vote for their Wave One picks now through Thursday, June 2 via TeenChoice.com, the FOX NOW app, and Twitter.
The 2016 Teen Choice Awards will air in a star-studded two-hour event LIVE Sunday, July 31 from 8-10:00 PM ET on Fox.
