The first bunch of 2013 Teen Choice Award nominations came out today, and Supernatural is well represented with three noms.
The show is up for Choice TV Show - Fantasy/Sci-Fi, up against Once Upon a Time and fellow CW shows Arrow, The Vampire Diaries and Beauty and the Beast.
And for Choice TV Actor - Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki are BOTH nominated, competing against The Vampire Diaries‘ Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley as well as Arrow’s Stephen Amell. Clearly teens love the CW.
SPN has long been a favorite at the Teen Choice Awards. It was nominated for the same three awards last year and these new nominations bring the show’s total to 12 noms, though oddly it has never won.
In unrelated (but perhaps more exciting) news, Supernatural alum Jim Beaver scored a Critics Choice Award nomination for Guest Performer in a Drama Series for his work on Justified. It’s not directly tied to SPN, but I’m still darn excited that Beaver is finally getting the credit he deserves.
