For a while now us fans have been trying so hard for The Primetime Emmy Awards to at least give The Vampire Diaries a fair chance, when going through the voting Process that they would really consider this show.
We did find out that Paul is in Lead Drama Actor, Nina is in Lead Drama Actress and Ian is in Supporting Drama Actor on the ballot thanks to @cadlymack on Twitter, but of course The Primetime Emmy Awards will most likely just pass on over them without even a look at what was submitted, if you ask me it is discriminating.
The reason I say that The Primetime Emmy Awards discriminate towards The Vampire Diaries is because it’s not just them it’s The CW they put their nose up too, they can deny this all they want, but it’s the truth, nowhere is it written that The CW shows can’t be nominated, but we went through this with The WB and UPN years ago there were a few Solid Good Emmy Worthy Shows like For Example Buffy The Vampire Slayer this show is now a LEGEND and was always passed up, it had a few nominations in like Visual Effects, Music etc, but I am talking about the Actors being nominated along with the show as a series.
Perhaps The Primtime Emmy Awards ignore because The CW isn’t a rich network, but if you ask me it’s the riches Network out there and not because of money, but because of the people on it, the talent on a few of the shows is just Phenomenal and it breaks my heart that each year it gets ignored. Though as Actor Ian Somerhalder says: “We will live and continue” from his tweet to Nina Network on June 9th, 2011 while discussing The Primetime Emmy Awards.
Another reason because it’s not a High Rated Network well here is the thing which I feel should end soon The Nielsen Ratings it’s ridiculous because when you really look at it you know damn well The Vampire Diaries is getting more then the 2 or 3 mil A week they get in these “ratings”, I mean seriously The Vampire Diaries Facebook has over 7 MILLION Fans and I bet you those 7 Million WATCH the show and then don’t forget all those without Internet and a Nielsen Box that are not being counted.
I hope that one day things change and this Discrimination ends but until then we can just continue to enjoy our shows, admire and adore our actors and actresses that bring us nothing but the best every time they are on our screens.
One thing is for sure though Emmy or No Emmy The Vampire Diaries will always be remembered, it has one hell of a Fan Following and I am so proud to be part of the Fandom. Who Needs An Emmy when you got all of us! It would be amazing, but life goes on.
