Joseph took to Twitter to share his excitement — in an adorable way, of course. “This is my first nomination that doesn't have 'Villain' in the title ;),” he tweeted yesterday, along with a link to the nomination form. Seems like Joseph is ready to step out of those “villain” shoes and try something else on for size — and we’re all for it, too!
So far, The Originals has been a chance to watch even more of the Mikaleson family squabbling, and Klaus’s machinations and motivations have been fun to debate. We’re eager to see where Klaus’ character arc takes him. (Though, dropping Timothy off of a choir balcony? Not good, Klaus.)
The Top 5 nominees in each category will be announced November 5, and fans will be able to cast votes again from those narrowed-down lists. The awards ceremony itself is scheduled to air on January 8, 2014. Other potential nominees in JoMo’s category include other amazing genre newcomers: S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Clark Gregg and Dracula’s Jonathan Rhys Meyers. What do you think? Can Joseph win over them? Sound off below.
The Originals airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
