Fox has announced that The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco will be hosting the 2011 Teen Choice Awards, which are set to air on Sunday, August 7th. Cuoco joins a plethora of other TV-related appearances on the 13th annual celebration of everything teens love in music, sports, film, and television, including the Kardashians, Rose Byrne (Damages), Shane West (Nikita), Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars), Victoria Justice (Victorious), and Ed Helms (The Office), among others.
Wizards of Waverly Place actress, teen pop star, and Justin Bieber’s main squeeze Selena Gomez is one of the scheduled performers, joined by her band The Scene.
Also unveiled was the final category: Choice Vampire. Not surprising addition, considering that vampires seem to be the “it” pop culture trend in 2011. Nominees include three vamps from The Vampire Diaries (Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley), two from the Twilight franchise (Nikki Reed, Robert Pattinson), and one from True Blood (Alexander Skarsgard). You can vote for this and all other categories on the Teen Choice Awards website every day until the ceremony on August 7th.
