and the Poolie goes to...

1. Rebekah Mikaelson (The Vampire Diaries) 12 points
1st by Jack, 3rd by Me

This is Rebekah Mikaelson's first nomination and win for the best female character in a drama series.

Obviously, it's not a category that many Poolie voters take stock in, seeing that 12 points (5 from Jack, 4 from Matt, and 3 from me) won this award for Rebekah, but the bigger disappointment is that only three voters are lucky enough to witness the fun of this character.  Honestly, the fact that most Poolie voters aren't watching The Vampire Diaires is a travesty.  Turo Escalante wins over Klaus?  I can understand Jaydon not taking part, because as we all know, he is an absolute snob who only watches the snobbiest of snobby television (love you Jaydon), but there is no excuse for the rest of the crew.  Specifically Tyson, who for some reason still reps True Blood hard, should love Vampire Diaries.  It's the much better of the two major vampire shows out there.  Anyway, back to Rebekah.  If you were to tell me after season two that I would enjoy another female character on Vampire Diaries nearly as much as Caroline Forbes, I would have said you were crazy...but Rebekah pulled it off.  She's sexy, she's ruthless, and most importantly, she's stealthily emotional.  Congratulations and let's hope this leads to more TVD awards next season.
