It’s Teen Choice time again: Fox presents an­nual award show

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

Once again, it’s time for teens to have their say about the awards cir­cuit.

Fox presents the 2019 edi­tion of the mid­sum­mer sta­ple known as Teen Choice on Sun­day, Aug. 11, with surf­boards as “tro­phies” pre­sented to win­ners in ar­eas from movies and tele­vi­sion to mu­sic and sports. The dig­i­tal world ap­pro­pri­ately is cel­e­brated, too, since votes were cast on a ded­i­cated web­site and on Twit­ter in two waves over the past cou­ple of months.

A win in the choice sum­mer TV ac­tress cat­e­gory may give a last hur­rah to Rose McIver for “iZom­bie,” the CW se­ries that ended its five-sea­son run at the start of this month. The pleas­ant tal­ent says she’s now “gain­fully un­em­ployed for the first time in years, and it’s prob­a­bly good for me to slow down and spend more time with my fam­ily. It’s very for­eign to me to go back to Au­di­tion Land and not know what’s around the cor­ner, and I think I’m ex­cited to take that in my stride.”

McIver’s fel­low Teen Choice con­tenders in her con­test are: Chloe Ben­net, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”; Hi­lary Duff, “Younger”; Jes­sica Marie Gar­cia, “On My Block”; Millie Bobby Brown, “Stranger Things”; and Yara Shahidi, “grown-ish.”
