Caitlyn Jenner Celebrates Teen Choice Awards “Social Media Queen” Nomination: “What An Honor!”
Caitlyn Jenner is celebrating her first-ever Teen Choice Awards nomination.
As Gossip Cop reported earlier, on Thursday it was revealed Jenner is among the celebrity nominees featured in the third wave of 2015 nominations. The reality star is nominated in the category of “Social Media Queen.” She’s up against all music stars: Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, and Taylor Swift.
But despite the fierce competition, Jenner is basking in the recognition. After hours after the announcement, she tweeted on Thursday night, “And to think I wouldn’t have qualified for this nom a few months ago… What an honor!” Jenner included the hashtags “#TeenChoice #SocialMediaQueen,” and a link to the official voting site.
All Teen Choice winners are decided based on fans’ online votes. But while the Kardashian-Jenner family has earned nods (and wins) in the past, this surprising nomination has come just a couple of days before Jenner hits her two-month Twitter anniversary. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, she joined the social media site on June 1, the same day she debuted as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair.
Jenner went on to become the fastest person to a million followers, a fact that was cheered on last week’s premiere of “I Am Cait.” And though Jenner has only sent a grand total of 27 tweets so far, she’s now amassed 2.75 million followers.
