'Jersey Shore,' 'Teen Wolf' And 'Awkward.' Vying For 'Teen Choice' Surfboards

You'll hear a lot of actors in dapper suits and designer gowns talking about how it's "just an honor to be nominated" for any award show's prize, but MTV's a little bit more straightforward: We want our talent to win sh**. And now that cast members from "Jersey Shore," "Teen Wolf" and "Awkward" are up for the summer's coveted Teen Choice Awards surfboard trophies, the campaign begins...

The show, which will air July 22 on Fox, has given nods to Ashley Rickards and Crystal Reed for Choice Summer TV Star for their portrayals of high school anti-heroine Jenna Hamilton and werewolf hunter-in-training, Allison Argent, respectively. On the male side of the same award is Tyler Posey, who plays Allison's boyfriend and tortured werewolf Scott McCall, while Pauly D, "The Situation" and Snooki racked up nominations for Choice Reality TV Star. Oh, and let's not forget Rob Dyrdek, whose "Ridiculousness" nomination in the same category made it a four-show affair for MTV.
