The Vampire Diaries TV SeriesBack on June 3rd, Deadline Hollywood reported that the CW had launched its first ever Emmy campaign, highlighting the Warner Bros.-produced shows Gossip Girl, Smallville, One Tree Hill, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries. DH provided a look at the CW’s For Your Consideration insert in Emmy Magazine (the brainchild of WB TV’s chief marketing officer, Lisa Gregorian) and revealed that a DVD with special Emmy promo trailers of the aforementioned shows had been included. (Any chance the general public will get to see this Vampire Diaries promo trailer at some point?)

A few days later, Vlada of TV blog Staying In provided more detail about the OMFG FYC insert, mentioning that the network had submitted the Vampire Diaries Pilot and Lost Girls. Vlada had this to say in regards to the CW’s chances for Emmy recognition:

While I don’t think that most of the CW shows can compare to the glory days of the WB, least of all Emmy-nominated shows like Mad Men, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t some underrated talent on the network.


Now Zap2It’s Carina MacKenzie has chimed in on the CW’s Emmy chances, reinforcing the point that while CW shows may not stand a chance in the Emmy race, there’s something to be said for the CW roster’s influence on pop culture and the strength of some of its stars:

That’s not to say that Ackles won’t deserve [an Emmy] eventually. In fact, we think The CW is currently grooming the actors who will be tomorrow’s greats. Nina Dobrev’s subtle shifts between her two characters, Katherine and Elena, in “The Vampire Diaries” finale are very telling of her natural ability and dedication to the craft. Ian Somerhalder has spent a decade on television, but it wasn’t until he hit The CW that he truly found his stride with Damon Salvatore.


What do you guys think? Is the campaign ballsy or futile? Agree with the Vampire Diaries episodes submitted?

    I don’t agree with including the Pilot episode at all. And Lost Girls is inferior to say Blood Brothers IMO. But I would love to see that new promo trailer.

  • Marina- Stelena!

    Definitely don’t agree with putting the pilot in- definitely the worst episode of the season (they had to get all of that lovey-dovey, cliche, supernatural stuff out of the way) and then the real story lines started to take place.

    I like Lost Girls, but Blood Brothers or that other episode… can’t remember what its called (one where we see pearl shot, Katherine taken away etc.) or The Turning Point, or even Isobel

  • Del

    What the hell..Why would you submit the WORST episode of the season(Pilot)? It should be Lost girls, blood brothers, Isobel, finale, any of those. But the pilot even i didn’t like, and I love TVD. And not mention the acting was mehhh..i think the writers and actors learned what they were doing wrong and the episodes significantly improved from then on.

  • Dawn

    I agree with DEL above, there were way better episodes after the pilot that could have been included. Frankly, the pilot was rather cheesy compared to many of the other edgier episodes later. I am happy they are doing the campaign, this is an awesome show with a very talented cast that deserves some recognition, particularly Ian, sorry I had to fangirl there!

  • GA Peach

    They should have submitted either Let the Right One In, Isobel, Founder’s Day, The Turning Point or Miss Mystic Falls. Although, Lost Girls was ok to send in. It would be nice if Vampire Diaries could win an emmy. After all, it is one of the best shows on TV today. Ian Somerhalder as Damon..Smokin Hot and totally has sold his character. No one could play the part of Damon like Ian somerhalder has. Paul Wesley as Stefan and Nina Dobrev playing two characters ..Elena/Katherine.. Why couldn’t Vampire Diaries win?

  • Marina- Stelena!

    I agree with GA Peach, Let The Right One or The Turning Point also Miss Mystic Falls would have all been great episodes to submit. The finale would have been ok, but not the best episode for this campaign since it really doesn’t show their talents- its just an epiosde we love as fans of the show because its the (most epic ever) season finale.

    Excellent choices. Totally agree. Good luck.
