Potential nominees for "The 33rd Annual People's Choice Awards" were compiled with the help of Knowledge Networks, a leading market research company. Knowledge Networks used its consumer research resources, which include the only projectable, Web-based, nationally representative panel, to identify a pop-culture-involved sample of men and women ages 18-49. For each category, the respondents were provided with a set of candidates determined by national ratings averages, box-office grosses and album sales. The respondents then chose their favorites in Television, Movies and Music. They also had the option to write in their favorites where not included among the provided candidates. Their top three selections in each category became the final nominees.
Fans have the opportunity to vote for their favorites in each category at PCAvote.com starting today. Online voters can also register for a chance to win a VIP trip to "The 33rd Annual People's Choice Awards." Visit PCAvote.com to learn more about the sweepstakes.
