Teen Choice Releases Inaugural ‘Vampire Award’ Shortlist

Yes, you’re reading that right, Teen Choice ’11 actually has a category for ‘Choice Vampire’, thus proving themselves to be far more progressive than the, frankly intolerant Academy Awards will ever be. It’s about time vampires received recognition for their acting prowess and it’s a bold move by Teen Choice (now in its 13th year) to include these supernatural beings in their award categories.

A spokesperson for Teen Choice has today issued a statement in which they lampooned the other award ceremonies, calling them “bigotedâ€? and adding that “their [other award ceremonies] refusal to recognise the thespian talents of other-worldly actors actresses is now bordering on the ridiculous, we [Teen Choice] have decided to lead by example, and from now on will be including at least one category for best supernatural being every year.â€?

Teen Choice went on to hint next year’s awards will include a category for “Choice Dragonâ€?, with The hobbit’s Smaug hotly tipped to take the title. The move has been welcomed by The Werewolf, wizarding, and angel’s alliance, although, not everyone is happy; The Society For The Continuation Of Ogres And Trolls have left a number of vitriolic comments on Teen Choice’s message boards and Facebook fan pages.

Of course that didn’t happen, it would be ridiculous. However, Teen Choice has actually announced the nominees for “Choice Vampireâ€? (it does indeed exist), which are as follows:

Nina Dobrev – The Vampire Diaries
Robert Pattinson – Twilight
Nikki Reed – Twilight
Alexander Skarsgård – True Blood
Ian Somerhalder – The Vampire Diaries
Paul Wesley – The Vampire Diaries

And they also announced Kaley Cuoco (8 Simple Rules, The Big Bang theory) will be hosting their 13th annual awards, which take place on August 7.
