Kiwi heartthrob KJ Apa has been nominated for a People's Choice Award.

The Riverdale star has clearly earned a massive following in the US thanks to the Netflix series, and is now up for the award for best Male TV Star of 2019.

The nod sees him up against Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus, superstars Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K Brown and even his own Riverdale co-star, Cole Sprouse.

The nod puts Apa in good company on a larger scale too though, with stars like Taylor Swift, Keanu Reeves, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Reynolds and Beyonce being nominated at the awards across various categories.


Taylor Swift's Lover is up for Album of the Year against Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next; Khalid's Free Spirit, Billie Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go?, Lizzo's Cuz I Love You, Jonas Brothers' Happiness Begins, Ed Sheeran's No.6 Collaborations Project and Bad Bunny's X 100pre.

Taylor may even come away with two trophies on the night as she's also been nominated for Female Artist of the Year alongside Ariana Grande, Cardi B, Halsey, Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus, Camila Cabello and P!nk.

The Male Artist of the Year category is equally as strong as Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Ed Sheeran, Drake, Travis Scott, Khalid, Lil Nas X and Bad Bunny will go head-to-head to nab the coveted trophy.

Avengers: Endgame is in with the chance of walking away with four gongs as it's been nominated for Movie of Year, The Action of the Year and its stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson have also scored nods.

As well as Robert and Chis, the Male Movie Star category is made up of Tom Holland, Will Smith, Keanu Reeves, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johnson and Adam Sandler, while the female equivalent features Millie Bobby Brown, Zendaya, Sophie Turner, Jennifer Aniston, Brie Larson, Lupita Nyong'o and Tessa Thompson.
