WATCH the 40th Annual People's Choice Awards from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles starting at 9PM on CBS 8.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The most popular stars in television, music and film — including the cast of "Glee," Katy Perry and Sandra Bullock — are up for honors at Wednesday night's People's Choice Awards.

Broadcasting live on CBS from 9-11 p.m. EST from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, People's Choice is one of the first award shows of the season and one of the few decided by the fans themselves.

"Glee" leads with eight nominations, while Perry and Bullock top with five nods each. Perry picked up three awards in 2013. Other past winners also nominated this year include entertainers such as Robert Downey Jr., Jennifer Aniston, Emma Watson, One Direction, Taylor Swift, Jimmy Fallon, "True Blood" and "The X Factor."

Amusing categories like favorite TV anti-hero pit Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's Jaime Lannister of "Game of Thrones" against Bryan Cranston's Walter White of "Breaking Bad."

Additional unique categories include: TV bromance; TV gal pals; movie duo; on-screen chemistry; and series we miss most.

The star-studded show will feature appearances by Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Emily Deschanel, Zac Efron, Anna Faris, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Michael B. Jordan, Queen Latifah, Melissa McCarthy, the cast of "The Big Bang Theory" and more.

Jennifer Hudson will receive the second annual humanitarian award for her work with the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, an organization she formed in 2009 in honor of her nephew, Julian King. Bullock gained the show's first humanitarian award in 2013 for her efforts in storm-ravaged New Orleans.

Brad Paisley, Sara Bareilles and OneRepublic will perform. Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs will host.

The People's Choice Awards nominees are determined by national ratings averages, box-office grosses, music sales, social media activity and peopleschoice.com data. Winners are selected by fans voting online.
