Fresh off the heels of her appearance with Madonna at Dodger Stadium in L.A. last week, Britney Spears has scored a People’s Choice nomination for favorite scene-stealing guest star for her role on How I Met Your Mother.

But dominating this year’s nominations is the late Heath Ledger and his movie The Dark Knight, which came away with nods for favorite movie, favorite cast and favorite on-screen match-up for Ledger and costar Christian Bale.

The Joker and Batman will compete with other favorite duos Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf.

New this year is an award for favorite star under 35, which has been added to the list to celebrate PEOPLE’S 35th birthday and the show’s 35th year.

The People’s Choice Awards, hosted by Queen Latifah, will air on CBS Jan. 7.
