Despite just getting its US premiere less than a week ago, Dune has been nominated for four People’s Choice Awards!
The film, which just received a green light for Part 2, was nominated in the following categories:
- The Movie of 2021
- The Drama Movie of 2021
- Timothée Chalamet for Drama Movie Star of 2021
- Jason Momoa for Drama Movie Star of 2021
Dune is an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s critically acclaimed 1965 sci-fi novel of the same name. While the film was always marketed as a Part One, Legendary and Warner Bros. decided to wait to announce if the film would get a Part 2 until after gauging the audiences response. Clearly, that response was overwhelmingly positive.
Part 1 starred Timothée Chalamet as the gifted hero Paul Atreides alongside Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Chang Chen, David Dastmalchian, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.

The PCA’s will air on E! and NBC on Tuesday, December 7 at 9 p.m. ET. Voting is open until November 17.
