The votes have been tallied and the hardware is about to be handed out.

Over the past few weeks, TV Fanatic has presented readers with an opportunity to (politely and respectfully) stick it to The Emmy Awards.

@Revegenda: Yes the winners were based on votes. We ran a poll about every other day for a few weeks listing the nominees in various categories.


Congrats to my sweetheart Joseph Morgan!!


Yay for Ellen Pompeo! Wish she'd get the real Emmy though, she's so underrated and is long overdue for an Emmy.


Congrats Ian Somerhalder! Fantastic actor and the only reason I watch Vampire Diaries.


Congrats to Jason Segel, Kaley Cuoco, and Community.


@Revegenda I was going say that too.
Also Ian is considered to be a supporting actor (as Paul has higher billing than him). but how was the nominees picked for the votes?


Kaley Cuoco is actually the lead actress in TBBT, but whatever. Just out of curiosity; the winners were based on votes?


YaY..Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder,and Joseph Morgan.


Whoooo!!! Joseph Morgan won!!!!
