Brad Pitt’s People’s Choice nomination

Brad Pitt will compete against Hugh Jackman and Channing Tatum for the honour of Favourite Movie Actor at the 2015 People’s Choice Awards.

The newly-married heartthrob’s inclusion in the prestigious category was announced on Tuesday morning by Anna Faris and Allison Janney in a live feed.

But Brad has some tough competition if he wants to take home the gong – as he will have to beat fellow nominees Channing Tatum, Hugh Jackman, Mark Wahlberg and Robert Downey Jr.

Brad is also up for Favourite Dramatic Movie Actor, alongside Robert once again, as well as Ben Affleck, George Clooney and Matt Damon.

Brad’s new wife Angelina Jolie also earned herself a nomination at the awards, as she is up for Favourite Movie Actress. She also has some tough competition, however, as she is up against Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Melissa McCarthy and Scarlett Johansson.

As well as Favourite Movie Actress, Angelina is up for Favourite Action Movie Actress, with a similar group of nominees including Jennifer, Scarlett, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Saldana.

Over on the men’s side, Hugh and Mark also received seconds nomination in Favourite Action Movie Actor, along with Chris Evans, Denzel Washington and Liam Neeson.

Angelina’s recent movie Maleficent also received a nod as it is up in the Favourite Movie category, alongside Channing’s 22 Jump Street, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy and Hugh and Jennifer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Scandal’s Kerry Washington and Nashville’s Hayden Panettiere have been recognised in Favourite Dramatic TV Actress category, but face tough competition alongside Ellen Pompeo, Alyssa Milano and Emily VanCamp.

Lady Gaga’s boyfriend Taylor Kinney has been nominated in the Favourite Dramatic TV Actor category, with Dax Shepard, Jesse Williams, Justin Chambers and Patrick Dempsey.

Music stars will also been recognised at the ceremony, to be held next January, with nominees including Beyoncé, Iggy Azalea, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Pharrell Williams.
