Our fave supernatural soap and its array of attractive actors are up for nine Teen Choice Awards this year. Nine! Not only is the show itself up for the Choice TV Show Fantasy/SciFi category, the main trio — Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Wesley — also picked up nominations. Michael Trevino, Kat Graham, and newcomer Joseph Morgan all got nods as well. Basically, the entire cast — minus Candice Accola, who was robbed! — is up for awards, because, well, they’re awesome. ‘Nuff said.
Here’s the nomination list:
Choice TV Show Fantasy/SciFi — The Vampire Diaries Choice TV Actor Fantasy/SciFi — Paul Wesley (Stefan) or Ian Somerhalder (Damon) Choice TV Actress Fantasy/SciFi — Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine) Choice TV Scene Stealer Actress — Kat Graham (Bonnie) Choice TV Scene Stealer Actor — Michael Trevino (Tyler) Choice TV Villain — Joseph Morgan (Klaus) Choice Hottie Male — Ian Somerhalder (Damon) Choice Hottie Female — Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine)
OK, so we’re not exactly teens anymore, but we still want our favorite people on TV to win. The rules say you must be between the ages of 13 and 19 to vote, so for those of you who can, do the rest of us a favor and surf on over to the Teen Choice Awards website to cast your vote every day. Then we can all catch the live awards show ceremony on August 7, 2011 at 8/7c on Fox; hopefully we'll see TVD’s many stars walk away with some much-deserved honors.
