Yes, youâre reading that right, Teen Choice â11 actually has a category for ‘Choice Vampire’, thus proving themselves to be far more progressive than the, frankly intolerant Academy Awards will ever be. Itâs about time vampires received recognition for their acting prowess and itâs 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 âbigotedâ? and adding that âtheir [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 yearâs awards will include a category for âChoice Dragonâ?, with The hobbitâs Smaug hotly tipped to take the title. The move has been welcomed by The Werewolf, wizarding, and angelâs alliance, although, not everyone is happy; The Society For The Continuation Of Ogres And Trolls have left a number of vitriolic comments on Teen Choiceâs message boards and Facebook fan pages.
Of course that didnât happen, it would be ridiculous. However, Teen Choice has actually announced the nominees for âChoice Vampireâ? (it does indeed exist), which are as follows:
Nina Dobrev â The Vampire Diaries
Robert Pattinson â Twilight
Nikki Reed â Twilight
Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd â True Blood
Ian Somerhalder â The Vampire Diaries
Paul Wesley â 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.
