E! has revealed the leading nominees in the Australian Social Star of 2020 category for this year’s E! People’s Choice Awards handed out next month.
For the second year running, Australians will be able to cast their votes for the Australian Social Star of 2020 award, with six diverse nominees competing for the coveted title.
This year’s suite of influencers have made their mark on the nation and form a strong collective. In the running for the title, Aussies up for nomination include Brooke Blurton, Tigerlily, Flex Mami, Helen Chik, Lana Wilkinson and Martha Kalifatidis.
Representing a diverse mix of individuals, our Aussie nominees bring an eclectic combination of passions, personalities and achievements to the virtual stage. Putting our best foot forward, this year’s nominees are undeniably influential beyond their feeds – from females conquering traditionally male-dominated industries to professional ‘opinion havers’, glam gurus and reality TV sensations. These individuals have pushed the boundaries of digital innovation, engaged audiences in all-new compelling ways, and surprised us with the most “omg”, “wtf” and “lol” moments.
With voting categories spanning across music, pop culture, TV and movies, the annual E! People’s Choice Awards will once again call upon fans across the globe to make their mark and vote for nominee’s worthy of the win.
In each of the 44 categories, fans worldwide can choose from eight nominees representing movies, television, music and pop culture.

This year’s new categories include “The New Artist of 2020,” “The Collaboration Song of 2020,” and “The Soundtrack Song of 2020.”
