Apparently Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder won the People’s Choice Award for best on-screen chemistry, which is a tribute both to how good they are on The Vampire Diaries and, I suspect, to the organizational skills of TVD viewers when you’re talking about a fan-voted event (my cousin Joseph Morgan, who is on TVD’s spin-off, The Originals, also won an award [he is great on that show (he is not really my cousin)]). It was also potentially awkward considering that they dated for a long time and have since broken up, but you’ll be relieved (or perhaps saddened, depending on how much you love soapy shenanigans) to see that they behaved like professionals who still have a mutual affection for one another.

Aw, you two crazy kids. Even my cold, hard, icy, flinty heart may have just melted a wee bit.

Let’s look at the rest of Nina’s dress:

I love the fact that someone is wearing a dress with sleeves and a turtleneck in January, and this may, in fact, be one of the few seasonally appropriate dresses we’ve seen so far this year (admittedly, it’s only the 9th). The whole thing looks like a salute to the Polar Vortex…in a good way.
