E! Online is now accepting nominations for its 2006 Tater Top Awards.

What are the Tater Tops? — this is “the only TV kudofest where the winners are chosen solely by the fans,” and the nominations are fan-driven as well. The showrunners and actors really love getting these awards from the fans, and they are a huge hit year after year.

Right now Kristin Veitch at E! Online is accepting your nominations, and soon she will release the list of the nominees in each category. I’ll be sure to remind you again when it’s time to vote

Here are this year’s categories (and my 1 or 2 nominations for each category). You might see a pattern with my nominations…sue me!!!

    Wow…Logan & Veronica are on The Office? 😉

    I’m not so sure their wit would translate to an office environment where they jinx each other for Cokes and Veronica is engaged so some unappreciative butthead but secretly lusting after Logan.

    On second thought, it totally translates.

    And for best guest star, seeing as you love(d) Alias, you might like Lena Olin. The scene at Syd’s house when Jack sees Irina again for the first time in ages was electric.
