    Dads rule!

    On The Line, a national prostate cancer awareness campaign, announced the nominations for the first annual 2012 "Big Daddy Awards" -- from Brad Pitt to President Obama -- in which fans can vote for their top celebrity dad picks in 33 categories that encompass film, television, music, comedy and sports.

    The "Big Daddy Awards" is a virtual award show held exclusively online, of which the winners will be announced on Monday, June 18, the day after Father's Day. Fans can vote for their favorite celebrity dads here, now through June 17.

    Nominations include top celebrities and noted figures in fun and unique categories -- Brad Pitt is nominated for "Heartthrob Big Daddy"; Jay-Z for "Hip Hop Big Daddy "; David Beckham for "Best Dressed Big Daddy"; Bono for "Do Gooder Big Daddy"; and President Obama for "Presidential Candidate Big Daddy." Other nominees include Mario Batali for "Hottest Thing in the Kitchen Big Daddy"; Clint Eastwood for "Iconic Big Daddy"; Cee Lo Green for "Bald and the Beautiful Big Daddy"; LeBron James for "Pro Hoops Big Daddy"; Donald Trump for "Business Mogul Big Daddy"; and even All-Time TV greats from Andy Griffith, Hugh Beaumont, Bill Cosby, Michael Landon, Ray Romano and George Lopez for "TV Dad Hall of Fame Big Daddy."

    "The Biggest Daddy of the Year Award" will go to the dad with the most votes overall.

    Will you vote? Who is your favorite dad besides your own? Fave TV dad?
