On a day that saw her son Jayden James hospitalized after eating something bad back home in Louisiana, Britney Spears also received some good news.
With her career comeback in full swing, it was announced Monday that the 26-year-old was nominated for an award - and one people will actually vote on!
After racking up some big wins at the hilariously rigged and meaningless MTV VMAs, Spears is up for a People's Choice Award for How I Met Your Mother.
The category? "Favorite scene-stealing star." She's certainly that.
Brit Brit is up against Luke Perry and Robin Williams, both of whom were nominated for their guest appearances on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
The star played a dorky receptionist named Abby in two episodes of the CBS show. On the first, in March, she helped HIMYM score its best ratings ever.
Spears has been on a tear professionally, receiving huge applause when she performed at Madonna's Sticky & Sweet concert in L.A. (above) last week.
Her new single, "Womanizer," not only features Britney Spears nude - it hit #1 on the Hot 100 Billboard chart in October - her first #1 song since 1999!
