The nominations for the 2014 Saturn Awards were announced this morning and The Vampire Diaries is nominated for Best Youth-Oriented TV Series alongside Arrow, Pretty Little Liars, Teen Wolf, Supernatural, and The Tomorrow People.
The Saturn Awards honor the best in genre entertainment:
The Academy was founded in 1972 by noted film historian Dr. Donald A. Reed to honor and recognize films often overlooked by mainstream awards. Over the years, the Academy has expanded its reach to include recognizing excellence in television and home entertainment, as well as other genres, including adventure, thriller and action. Robert Holguin, president of the Academy says, “This has been an incredible year for genre entertainment which I affectionately refer to as enhanced or exaggerated reality. The films and shows we honor continue to lead in box-office success showcasing a cadre of great talent helming today’s works of wonder. I’m thrilled to see the organization reach its’ fourth decade of dedication to the most imaginative creations on the silver screen and fantastic visions on the television screen”.
To see the full list of categories and nominees, check the official Saturn Awards website.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries!
Last night’s People’s Choice Awards yielded a handful of riches for The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. Miss the show? You can check out highlights below and a HUGE congrats to Joseph, Ian and Nina on their wins! Pat yourselves on the back, TVD and Originals fans.
First up, Joseph Morgan won for Favorite Actor in a New TV Series and was presented his award on the PCA red carpet before the show.
Joseph also introduced One Republic with Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale.
And Ian Somerhalder was also presented with an award on the pre-show red carpet: Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor.
And finally, Ian and Nina Dobrev took home the PCA for Favorite On-Screen Chemistry and gave what might have been the funniest and most charming acceptance speech of the night. (And Malin Ackerman may have given the most unique pronunciation of Ian’s name we’ve ever heard.)

Big thanks to youtube user r0man1st for the videos.
There have been a lot of questions about how the fall premiere of The Originals will work, since we’ve already had a backdoor pilot. Fortunately, Zap2it has some answers for us, as well as some hints about a new character we’ll be seeing in the fall.
Chronologically, the new “Originals” premiere will follow the backdoor pilot. That episode — and everything that happened in it — will still exist in the show’s universe. The purpose of the new premiere is instead to move the story forward and to introduce the characters and concepts to new viewers who may not have watched “The Vampire Diaries” in the past.
Meanwhile, in Mystic Falls, Graduation (EP423) has picked up some nods over at Entertainment Weekly‘s 2013 Season Finale Awards. The Vampire Diaries comes away with wins in the following categories: Best Non-Romantic Cliff-Hanger, Best Fight (Verbal or Physical), Most Disturbing Image and Most Rewound Moment.
Want to know which scenes got the nods? FIND OUT AT ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY.
It’s that time of year again: The Teen Choice Awards have announced their first wave of nominations. The Vampire Diaries as a whole is up for Choice TV Show: Fantascy/Sci-Fi. Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley are both up for Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Nina Dobrev and Kat Graham are both nominated for Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Congratulations, everybody!
