The elections that actually matter have come and gone for now, but if you’ve still got election fever and you’re not putting your money or your voting power on The Voice or X Factor contestants there’s always the prestigious People’s Choice Awards.

The good news is that there are plenty of gay lady friendly or adjacent finalists up for People’s Choice Awards this year. Here’s a break down of some of the more LGBT-related or relevant nominees. So check them out and get voting – or don’t. With all of the gains for marriage equality, plus Tammy Baldwin becoming the first openly gay Senator ever that’s a pretty damned good election year. Will it matter if Ellen gets another People’s Choice? 

Vote here for this very life-altering election. The People's Choice Awards will air Jan. 9, on CBS. 

Favorite Movie:

“The Amazing Spider-Man”
“The Avengers”
“The Dark Knight Rises”
“The Hunger Games”
“Snow White and the Huntsman”

We're going with The Hunger Games since Katniss kicks ass and looks fab in a pair of boots and Jennifer Lawrence is pretty much the best thing to happen to young Hollywood in years. 

Favorite Movie Actress:

Anne Hathaway
Emma Stone
Jennifer Lawrence
Mila Kunis
Scarlett Johansson

This is a tough category considering all of these women are excellent actresses who've played tough, witty, bad-ass or even bisexual or lesbian adjacent - see Scar-Jo in Vicki Cristina Barcelona or Mila Kunis in Black Swan. That said, here's a photo of the lovely Mila.

Favorite Movie Icon:

Emma Thompson
Maggie Smith
Meryl Streep
Michelle Pfeiffer
Susan Sarandon

It's impossible to choose just one, but since Meryl played lesbian in The Hours we'll go with her. But wait, Emma played lesbian on The Ellen Show sitcom back in the day. This is pretty much an impossible category. Good luck voting. 

Favorite Face of Heroism:

Anne Hathaway, “The Dark Knight Rises”
Emma Stone, “The Amazing Spider-Man”
Jennifer Lawrence, “The Hunger Games”
Kristen Stewart, “Snow White and the Huntsman”
Scarlett Johansson, “The Avengers”

This category is as impossible to choose as Favorite Movie Actress but, just for fun, we thought we'd throw in a photo of Kristen Stewart looking like she's ready to cut a paprazzo.

Favorite Comedic Actress:

Cameron Diaz
Emily Blunt
Jennifer Aniston
Mila Kunis
Reese Witherspoon

This is another category with no obvious choice. Cam Diaz played bisexul in Being John Malkovich, Mila hooked up with Natalie Portman in Black Swan and Emily Blunt played gay curious in My Summer of Love. Here's Emily just because.

Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress:

Charlize Theron
Emma Watson
Keira Knightley
Meryl Streep
Rachel McAdams

Again, how do you choose just one? They're all so good. Luckily, if you have time to waste you can just keep clicking on the categories and voting until your fingers go numb. Charlize played gay in Monster and Meryl in The Hours, if that helps.

Favorite Network TV Comedy:
“The Big Bang Theory”
“Glee”
“How I Met Your Mother”
“Modern Family”
“New Girl”

Big Bang, Modern Family and How I Met Your Mother all star gay actors and Modern Family features a gay male couple but since Glee is the only one that stars a gay actor (Chris Colfer) a lesbian (Jane Lynch) and features lesbian and bisexual women, the answer is obvious. 

Favorite Network TV Drama:

“Gossip Girl”

“Grey's Anatomy”
“Grimm”
“Once Upon a Time”
“Revenge”

While we at SheWired are Revenge devotees-- thank you Emily VanCamp!--if we're going purely on adorable representation of a queer couple even through break-ups, pregnancy, baby daddies, car crashes, a musical episode and amputation then we have to go with these two!

Favorite Cable TV Drama:
“Burn Notice”
“Leverage”
“Pretty Little Liars”
“The Walking Dead”
“White Collar”

Sure, there are plenty of Walking Dead fans out there but, for us, Pretty Little Liars has this hands down with its lady killer gay character Emily Fields (Shay Mitchell) and her girlfriend Paige (Lindsey Shaw). 

Favorite Premium Cable TV Show:
“Dexter”
“Game of Thrones”
“Homeland”
“Spartacus”
“True Blood”

Sure, True Blood has more LGBT characters than you can swing a cat --or were-panther at-- but Dexter's Debra Morgan is really just the best honorary lesbian ever on television. But wait, Pam and Tara are kind of hooking up on True Blood. Honestly, this one's a dead heat. 

Favorite TV Crime Drama

“Bones”
“Castle”
“Criminal Minds”
“CSI”

“NCIS”  

This one's easy. Criminal Minds costars out actress Kirsten Vangsness as the masterful hacker Penelope Garcia.

For the win! 

Favorite Late Night Talk Show Host:

Chelsea Handler
Conan O'Brien
David Letterman

Jimmy Kimmel

Not only is funny lady and vodka lover Chelsea the only woman in the category but she's a big LGBT ally who's producing a show starring a lesbian as a lesbian character with Fortune Feimster's new project.

Jeff Probst
Katie Couric
Michael Strahan
Ricki Lake
Steve Harvey

Ricki is the original Tracy Turnblad in John Waters' classic Hairspray. She's also an ardent ally and advocate for LGBT people.

This one could go to the Gleeks but we're calling it for the Little Liars. 

Favorite New TV Comedy:

“Ben & Kate”
“Go On”
“Guys with Kids”
“The Mindy Project”
“The Neighbors”
“The New Normal”
“Partners”

The Matthew Perry starrerGo On costars Julie White as a lesbian trying to pull her life together following the death of her partner but The New Normal, about a gay male couple having a baby via a surrogate is executive produced by out lesbian Ali Adler. Tough Call.

“666 Park Avenue”
“Arrow”
“Beauty & The Beast”
“Chicago Fire”

“Last Resort”
“The Mob Doctor”
“Nashville”
“Revolution”
“Vegas”

The CW’s Emily Owens, M.D. starring Mamie Gummer as a quirky hospital intern features Kelly McCreary as her lesbian best friend but Chicago Fire features Lauren German as lesbian character Shay and also costars The Good Wife’s Monica Raymund as a paramedic who looks great in chinos and an t-shirt. Here’s a picture of German and Raymund just for fun. 

 

Favorite Pop Artist:
Adele
Demi Lovato
Justin Bieber
Katy Perry
P!nk

Adele can sing her lungs out and Katy Perry is fun and kind of hot but no one can blow the doors off of a venue while lifting a dude besides this woman!
