BREAKING NEWS–Johnny Depp nominated for People's Choice Award!

Another sign that awards season is almost upon us–the People’s Choice Award nominations were announced on Friday, and for the second year in a row, Johnny Depp received a nomination for Favorite Male Movie Star. Deppheads will recall that Johnny won this award in 2005; he did not attend the ceremony, but sent a memorable taped acceptance speech. Johnny’s competition this year includes Samuel L. Jackson and–ironically enough–the man who originally persuaded Johnny to try acting as a profession, Nicolas Cage.

The People’s Choice Awards will be given out on January 10, 2006, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The awards ceremony will be broadcast live.

Congratulations to Johnny Depp on his People’s Choice Award nomination! Perhaps it is a good omen that the nominations were announced on the day AFI Fest held its “Tribute to Johnny Depp.”
