Nina did not win the award she was individually nominated for in the Choice Action Movie Actress category, although The Vampire Diaries won the Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show award; which was a fitting end with the show having aired the finale of its eighth and final season on Friday, March 10th 2017 on The CW in America that included Nina’s triumphant return to the series as both Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce. Meanwhile, Kat Graham who portrayed Bonnie Bennett on The Vampire Diaries won the Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actress award.
Julie Plec summed it up beautifully in a series of tweets congratulating everyone involved in The Vampire Diaries, an extraordinary thank you to all the fans and a special congratulation to Kat Graham:
Well holy shit, one of the #tvd writers just emailed me congratulating me on the Teen Choice Award and I HAD NO IDEA.

There was also success for Nina’s recent collaborator Vin Diesel; as The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 won the Choice Sci-Fi Movie award in which Vin Diesel voices Baby Groot, although rather surprisingly The Return of Xander Cage and Fate of the Furious did not win any awards.
