“Twilight,” “High School Musical” and “Gossip Girl” have a combined 32 nominations for the 2009 Teen Choice Awards; that’s 32 more than Degrassi has so far. I’M SHOCKED AND OUTRAGED!!! I’M GONNA *CRAIG OUT* ON THE NEXT PERSON I SEE!!
Hosted this year by The Jonas Brothers, The Teen Choice Awards airs Monday, August 10 on FOX. Let’s face it; Degrassi has never been popular enough here in the U.S. to earn a nomination in the Choice TV Drama category, which is dominated by shows teens will ADMIT they enjoy like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Gossip Girl.” If there’s any consolation, “90210,” which stars former Degrassi girl Shenae Grimes, is nominated in the category this year.
Instead, Degrassi’s going to once again place their hopes of winning a TCA in the to-be-announced-later “Summer” category. Degrassi won Choice Summer TV Show in 2005 and 2007, and they were nominated last year.
Starting July 3, Degrassi’s going to finally catch up with CTV and air the final 10 episodes of Season 8. That’s six regular episodes and the 2-hour (4-part) TV movie, “Degrassi Goes Hollywood.”
If you care, or if you’re one of those poor souls who completely rely on The-N for their Degrassi information, here’s summaries for the episodes airing this Summer:
Jane Says (1 & 2): Noone understands why Jane hates her dad so much. Not even Jane, until she’s haunted by memories from her past. Danny’s new girlfriend Leia doesn’t quite fit in with Danny’s group of friends.
Touch of Grey: Tired of only being known as Kelly’s girlfriend, Emma tries to create an identity of her own. KC’s bad boy past is revealed.
Heart of Glass: Alli likes Johnny, and is willing to do WHATEVER it takes to keep him around.
Up Where We Belong: Everyone is stressed out with exams, and Mia makes a decision that will change her future.
