When it comes to awards shows, the Teen Choice Awards may not be the most prestigious in the biz, but they are one of the most exciting. Fans rally together to make their favorite actors, movies, and TV shows win, and in turn, the celebs take home a surfboard.

Well, get ready to vote, Once Upon a Time fans, because our favorite fairy tale drama was nominated for a 2013 TCA! They are up for the “Choice TV Show: Fantasy/Sci-Fi” category and against some serious CW competition: Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries!

Though all of these shows are great, we obviously think OUAT should win. Here are five reasons why — in GIFs, of course!

It’s a fantastic show that you can watch with the family
