Not only did exes Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev take home surfboards for Choice TV Actor and Actress in a Fantasy/Sci-Fi series for their work in The Vampire Diaries, but the show itself was honored by an overall win for Choice TV Show in the same category!
It was a tough race, considering TVD was up against the likes of Once Upon a Time, Supernatural, Beauty and the Beast, and Arrow. OUaT has a big fan following, but most notably, TVD won out over the long standing Supernatural — which is in its 9th season, while TVD just rounded out its 4th.
On Twitter, the stars were openly ecstatic about their win. Kat Graham (Bonnie) quickly thanked the voters before turning her attention to more important (?) matters, saying, “We thank you to everyone who voted! Love you! Breaking bad in an hour and a half, time to get focused!!”
Ian Somerhalder (Damon) jumped in early with a prediction of his win, saying, “Something tells me that I'm going to see a bunch of awesome teens in just a little bit.I might even get to go surfing this evening...Maybe;),” then later showed some love, saying, “I'm so grateful and so in love with you damn Teens- very cool day. Thank you #TCA2013 for creating this.”
