Teens get a bad rap as being a pretty angsty, hormonal bunch — but they’re also smart, fun and kind of awesome, so it only makes sense that the 2012 Teen Choice Awards followed suit. With nominations for everyone from Justin Bieber to Nicki Minaj to Zooey Deschanel, some frontrunners are predictable: Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and hostess with the mostess Demi Lovato are favorites for all of their categories, though for some of them they’re actually competing against one another!

Most of these are a toss up. Stay tuned to see who snags which surfboards!
