Lamar Odom gets reality show nomination

July 1, 2011 | 11:22 am

Lamjpg The Teen Choice Awards opened the polls for voting, and Lakers forward Lamar Odom is a nominee.

Just not in a sports category.

Instead Odom got the nod in the Male Variety Star category for his role in the reality show, "Khole and Lamar". The program itself is nominated for Best Reality Show, and Khole Kardashian and her sister Kim are nominated together for Female Variety Star. Meanwhile, big sports names like Dirk Nowitzki, Albert Pujols and Shaun White garnered nominations in the Male Athlete category.

But only teenagers aged 13-19 can make selections.

It might be a good way to kill time now that the NBA is locked out. The Teen Choice Awards offer 66 categories on everything from best “Liplock” to “Break-Up Song” to the always-popular Male and Female Hottie.
