True Blood’s King of the Villains

January 15, 2011 by  

The Vampire King Reigns Supreme:

True Bloods Russell Edgington RecliningTrue Blood’s own Russell Edgington (played by Denis O’Hare), the Vampire King of Mississippi, was recently voted the reader’s choice best TV villain of 2010 in’s “Best of 2010” poll. He beat out Agent June Stahl (Sons of Anarchy), Alice Morgan (Luther), Anna (V), and Jimmy O’Phelan (Sons of Anarchy). The King of Mississippi overwhelmingly claimed his throne, with 56% of the reader’s votes. And let’s face it – Russell stole every scene he was in. It was almost impossible not to love him – what a spectacular villain he was.

Other Nominations:

Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley) and Franklin Mott (James Frain) were nominated in the category of “Most Awkward Couple/Most Sexual Tension”. Shockingly, they placed third out of five possible couples! I’ve never seen a dysfunctional couple like those two before.

True Blood itself placed  third itself, behind Vampire Diaries and Supernatural, for “Best Undead Series”. That’s another category that is hard to believe. Not to knock Vampire Diaries (which I’ve never seen) or Supernatural (which I love), but really? True Blood delivers the real action, romance, and drama every week.

Those were the only other categories True Blood was nominated in.
