“#PeoplesChoice holy cow! Thank you so so so much everyone!!!” Ian tweeted. “You are MY people - I fricking love you…”
Aww, so sweet! Though Ian has some stiff competition in this category — The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, and Arrow’s Stephen Amell — TVD fans rallied and got Nina Dobrev her People’s Choice back in 2012 from a write-in nomination, so we can do the same for Ian, right?
Speaking of Nina, she also tweeted a reaction to her nomination, but didn’t stop there. She gave a cute shout-out to Ian on November 6, writing, “And a congrats shout out to @iansomerhalder for his nomination in the Best SciFi Actor category! Way to represent the male Vampires! Kill it! (Pun totally intended).” So sweet!
