CBS has announced the nominees for the 35th Annual People's Choice Awards during a ceremony hosted by Joshua Jackson "Fringe," Carrie Ann Inaba "Dancing with the Stars," Paula Marshall "Gary Unmarried" and Jay Mohr "Gary Unmarried."

'The Dark Knight' is up for awards in a whopping seven categories. 'Iron Man' is no slouch either, gathering five nominations.

Winners will be revealed during the live broadcast of 35th Annual People's Choice Awards which will be hosted by Queen Latifah from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2009 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.  The first awards show of 2009, 35th Annual People's Choice Awards honors fan favorites in television, movies and music.

You can vote for your favorites starting today at pcaVOTE.com.

Two comic book superheroes are going to slug it out with a big-screen icon for the in the FAVORITE MOVIE category. Nominees are 'The Dark Knight', 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' and 'Iron Man'.

The same three nominees are also up for the FAVORITE ACTION MOVIE award.

The cast of 'The Dark Knight' gets another nod in the FAVORITE CAST category, throwing down against a bunch of chicks from 'Mamma Mia!' and 'Sex and the City'.

It's no surprise that Robert Downey Jr.  gets a nod for FAVORITE MALE MOVIE STAR, contending with Harrison Ford  and Will Smith.

Which takes nothing away from Christian Bale's nomination for FAVORITE LEADING MAN. He'll have to hold off Brad Pitt  and Mark Wahlberg.

The two super guys also battle Will Smith for FAVORITE MALE ACTION STAR honors.

Bale and the late, great Heath Ledger get a nod in the FAVORITE ON-SCREEN MATCH-UP  category, pitted against Tina Fey & Amy Poehler ('Baby Mama')  and Harrison Ford & Shia LaBeouf  ('Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull') 

And no real surprises in the FAVORITE SUPERHERO category, the nominations of which go to Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Will Smith as John Hancock.

Thanks to Antonello Blueberry for the submission.

The People's Choice Awards are CRAP.  Tell me what the difference is between "Favorite Male Movie Star" & "Favorite Leading Man"?  And please Maniacs...that was a rhetorical question.  Still, it's good to see that TDK is still holding it down;-)

Can you say..."And the Oscar goes to... Dark Knight!"

I voted in this!

I'd rather vote for stuff like this than the useless Prez catagory.  I would suggest hitting all the Iron man stuff, Batman needs no help, but Iron man could lose out to a few chick flicks.

I voted for Iron Man in all catagories it was nominated in, Robert Downey might win for best leading Man.

I feel shocked...

 Tina Fey & Amy Poehler from Baby Momma?  No offense to the ladies involved (I'm generally a big fan). but that movie was rancid.  That Baby & Indy are up for anything only reminds me of how pathetic the masses are.

"Did you vote, Mr. Pirate?"

Hells no!
