Robert Pattinson Wins Choice Vampire At Teen Choice Awards — Sorry, Ian Somerhalder :(

Sun, August 7, 2011 10:16pm EDT by 83 Comments

Yes, I’m so bummed over Ian’s loss that I actually used an emoticon in a headline.

I write this post with my tail truly between my legs. As much as I wanted The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder to win Choice Vampire at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards, the obnoxiously large surf board unfortunately went to Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson.

So what went wrong for Ian? Here’s my take:

Vampire Diaries fans went hard with the voting, as always, but simply had too many choices. Ian got my hypothetical vote — apparently at 23 I’m no longer considered a “teen,” despite what my DVR says — but I do love me some Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley. Since each person can only cast one vote, fans simply couldn’t decide which of Mystic Falls’ fanged residents deserved the top honor.

Or maybe I’m just in denial.

And since nobody likes a sore loser, I tip my hat to Rob. The Twilight movies are huge, and more importantly, its fans are clearly loyal.

I should also note that Rob did a great job speaking on behalf of the “blood cancer awareness and education campaign,” Cancer Bites. For more information on that, go to http://www.cancerbites.tv.

True blood and vampire diaries exist because of ROBERT PATTINSON, so this very bad programs should say. THANK YOU ROBERT.
AND YES, ROBERT IS THE BEST VAMPIRE FOR EVER.

When a fan base is divided with three characters from the show competing against each other this is what happens. The other guy wins. Edward Cullen is not a true vampire anyway, he has NO Fangs. He is reptilian.

What the Fudge?

Robert “Edward” may look great to you all in “The Twilight saga” but truely i think that Ian “Damon” deserved it so much more he brought the real meaning of vampires back.Vampires aren’t suppose to sparkle, they sould kick ass and that is exacly what Ian “Damon” did in Vampire Diaries! I like “The Twilight saga” but i love “Vampire Diaries” so much more! It’s more realistic don’t you think?

I am all for Ian Somerhalder!!!!!!

I adore Ian and Rob, but the teens made the choice. I couldn’t eben vote. Stop complaining. Next time submit a suggestion to TCA to change the awards; one for the little screen and one for the big screen. Twilight is still showing on the big screen and the teens love Rob. Maybe when it is no longer on the big screen Damon (Ian) will win. I think he is great and so sexy, but so is Rob. You complain too much and give us too much personal comments. Just show the facts.
