There’s a whole big list, which you can view in its entirety here, but I didn’t include all of the categories, because frankly, I wasn’t sure you’d be all that interested to know that Ryan Seacrest was, of course, nominated for Best Reality Show Host for ‘American Idol’. You know.

My choices for winner are in bold. Who do you think is going to win their respective categories?
