Other CW shows receiving nominations were Smallville (Choice TV Actor: Action Adventure - Tom Welling, Choice TV Actress: Action Adventure - Kristin Kreuk, Choice TV: Sidekick - Allison Mack and Choice TV: Villain - Michael Rosenbaum) and America's Next Top Model (Choice TV: Reality Competition, Choice TV: Personality - Tyra Banks and Choice TV: Female Reality/Variety Star - Teyona Anderson).

OK... they ain't the Emmy's, but who wants to watch a stuffy awards show anyway?
