It’s that time of year again, when surfboards are given out to the most worthy. The first round of the 2013 Teen Choice Awards nominations were announced today, and surprise, surprise, The Vampire Diaries is well represented!

In the Choice TV Show: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, TVD is up against a bunch of its fellow CW shows: Arrow, Beauty and The Beast, and Supernatural. Once Upon a Time was also nominated in the category.

For Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) and Kat Graham (Bonnie Bennett) are both in the running. Eek! Who to choose! They’ll battle it out with Katie Cassidy from Arrow, Ginnifer Goodwin of Once Upon a Time, and Beauty and the Beast’s Kristin Kreuk.

Yet another tough decision must be made when it comes to the Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi noms. Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) vs. Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore). Why must this happen every year? We love them both! The Supernatural brothers, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, are also pitted against each other. Rounding out the category is our old TVD friend Stephen Amell of Arrow. (If you recall, he played a torture-happy werewolf in Season 2.)

Well, we’re officially not teens, so we don’t envy those of you who have to choose between Ian and Paul and Kat and Nina. We'd have to vote for everyone. Multiple times. Click here to vote!
