Selena Gomez and Bruno Mars Lead Teen Choice Award Nominations

The Teen Choice nominations are out – and some Latinos are going head-to-head for awards.

Selena Gomez's first featured film, Monte Carlo, was nominated for "Choice Summer Movie," battling it out with Hollywood blockbusters like “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.”

Gomez, who turns 19 on Friday, was also nominated in the “Choice Summer Movie Star: Female” category, where she's up against veteran actress Rosario Dawson for her role as Kate in "Zookeeper."

Justin Bieber’s main squeeze also snatched a nomination for “Choice Summer Music Star”; she's facing off against her BFF Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, Beyoncé, and Katy Perry in that category.

The nominations were announced Monday night.

Christina Aguilera’s “The Voice” was nominated, too, for “Choice TV: Breakout Show.” Its rival show, American Idol, wasn’t.

Scotty McCreery was, though. The Puerto Rican star is dueling it out with fellow Boricuas Javier Colón, of "The Voice," and Bruno Mars for "Choice Music: Breakout Artist."

Along with international sensation Pitbull, Mars was nominated in the “Choice Summer Music Star: Male” category. Mars' "Lazy Song" was also nominated for “Choice Summer Song,” as was Demi Lovato's newest single “Skyscraper.”
