    I was glad to hear Trueblood had so many nominations. I voted for them of course. I hope they win more than Twilight, Trueblood is so much better!!!!!!!!!!

  • Val

    I really agree with u guys about Alex! He may not be a “villian” per se,but I have voted for him because HE DOES deserve recognition!!

  • I just got my votes in…Way to go True Blood!! Yeah, Ryan and Stephen??!! But, I gotta go for my Vampire Bill, though!! Geez.. I feel kinda bad..Cause, Ryan is great in his role,too!! What cha, gonna do??!!

  • Vero

    Just voted for the Viking! 🙂 I dont believe Eric is a villain, but Alex is doing such an amazing job that he deserves the recognition.

  • I put my votes in for True Blood! I know Eric’s not a true villain because his character is so complex! But, if you only saw the scene where he tore that redneck dude apart with his bare hands in front of poor Lafayette – and then worried about getting blood in his hair – he could qualify for that one alone!

  • Elizabeth

    Yes, pity Stephen and Ryan are up for the same award. Sorry, but it has to be Bill!

  • Nia

    Its about time the show is getting recognized! I agree with all the nominations. I am hoping we get some wins!!!!!!!

  • Elle

    I agree! Eric is NOT actually the villian! He’s just… Well, he’s Eric. Who happens to not be a villian. Shouldn’t that be Mary Anne?

    But I’ll be so ticked if Twilight wins the awards and not True Blood. I like Twilight to some dregre but it’s plot and character depths are NOWHERE as good as True Blood’s.

  • Options

    Definitely Eric is not a villain. AB potrays him like one for Bill’ benefit. We know the real Eric! I voted for him because Alex should get recognition for the great job he is doing.

  • Carolyn

    i don’t think of eric as a villain, but i am glad that they are recognizing AS as something because he deserves it

  • Bree.J

    Eric is not a villan, he should ne in actors category…im still happy True Bloods getting some recognition

  • kit-kat

    Voted 🙂 …

    Sad to see Star Trek and Let the Right One In up against each other in a few categories. Love both of those movies. Anyway, enjoyed voting for those two, Potter and of course True Blood… tough to choose between Kwanten and Moyer 🙁

    Can’t believe they included Dragonball Evolution in the best comic book movie… seriously, so many comic book movies are released now a days and they couldn’t find a better one? They could have at least sneeked in Afro Samurai in the comic book section (since the animated series and movie air on Spike TV) or One Piece if they wanted to represent comics outside the US.

    I just voted!!! GO TEAM GO!!! Its a shame Steven and Ryan are splitting the votes on Best Horror Actor…
