Hilary Duff and Nick Cannon have received their share of nominations for Teen Choice awards over the years – and Duff has even won a few of the coveted surfboards. Now, the pair have been tapped to host this year’s show, set to air Aug. 26 on FOX.
Duff won Teen Choice awards in 2003 (Choice Movie Breakout Star, for The Lizzie McGuire Movie) and 2005 (Choice Movie Blush Scene, for A Cinderella Story). The 19-year-old actress and singer has been nominated eight other times.
Cannon has earned four nominations of his own, including one this year, for Choice TV Personality. The 26-year-old comedian has yet to win.
Other celebrities who are due to appear at Teen Choice 2007 include Jessica Alba, Megan Fox, Emmy Rossum, Lauren Conrad, Miley Cyrus, Ashlee Simpson, Anna Paquin, Dane Cook, Jared Padalecki and Taylor Kitsch.
Justin Timberlake has won a record 18 surfboards since 1999, and got four more nods this year. First-time nominees this year include Lily Allen, Shia LaBeouf, Sacha Baron Cohen, America Ferrera and Sanjaya Malakar.
The Teen Choice awards honor teen icons in film, television, music, sports and fashion. The public can vote on the nominees in all categories on fox.com/teenchoice until Sunday, Aug. 19.
Jessica Simpson and her Employee of the Month costar, Dane Cook, hosted last year’s Teen Choice Awards. That show was notable partly due to Simpson and ex-husband Nick Lachey’s efforts to avoid one another – which they succeeding in doing, both on the red carpet and on stage.
