People's Choice Awards 2013: We Won!!!!!!

Supernatural did it!!!! Not only were Jensen & Jared (and their lovely wives) actually at the awards show this year, but they presented an award (Fav Band) and received 2 awards!!!!

So what was won? Favorite SciFi/Fantasy show (2 years in a row!) and Favorite TV Fan Following (yay Fandom!).
Yes! We did it! We voted our hearts out and the show has two more wonderful awards on the shelf. Jensen & Jared did both lose out on the Favorite Dramatic TV Actor to Nathan Fillion, but considering the votes were no doubt split between the two, it was somewhat to be expected. I'm a Castle fan, so I'm pretty okay with Nathan's win.

Two out of three isn't bad at all and the added plus was that the boys were actually there. It was great to see the camera center on them throughout the show (making up for last year's snub PCAs? Hmmm?). I'm so happy and proud that fandom once again proved that we are a part of the best show on TV. :D

Here's a great little interview with Jensen on the red carpet!

Wanna go for a ride?
I'd just like to say seeing so much of the interior of the Impala brings back memories from my childhood when I rode in the backseat of my parent's 1964 Impala. See that bar light above the door? Our Impala had those same lights! I get so happy when I see those light up on the show. Ahem...sorry about the tangent, but I just love that car and how it ties to my own past. *g*
PhotoScape's effects strike again with some nice glow. ;)

Some PCA contemplations

Now that I've seen the awards and processing SPN's winnings the importance of the evening has really set in.

This was a big night for SPN, no doubt about it. Jensen & Jared were there in person and they picked up two wins, not to mention getting interviewed and photographed on the red carpet. More exposure for them and the show, though in the grand scheme of Hollywood SPN is still small potatoes.

I know some people are lamenting that neither of the boys won the Fav Dramatic Actor award. But it's just one award and considering both of the guys were nominated I think the numbers were simply against either of them coming up with a win.

But to put SPN's wins a bit more into perspective, I made this post on Tumblr:

How great were SPN’s wins at the PCAs last night?

Pretty darned amazing when you compare to how the competition did. I only looked at these 2 shows because they were nominated in many of the same categories SPN was and they also have large fanbases.

The Vampire Diaries - 4 Nominations, 0 Wins

Once Upon A Time - 4 Nominations, 0 Wins

Supernatural - 3 Nominations, 2 Wins

Not bad at all for the “little show that could” that’s in it’s 8th season. :)

I was honestly a little shocked that the other 2 shows didn't get anything. As the older show, one would think SPN would be more likely to be forgotten and pushed into the background, but you can't underestimate this fandom!

The other thing I noticed during the show was how some winners kept referring to it being the "people's choice awards" and "it's about the people". It started to feel so impersonal. I mean, we're all people, but only some of us are "fans". I thought it was very nice that when Jensen & Jared were accepting the win for SciFi/Fantasy Show that Jared used the word "fans". Further shows how appreciative the guys are towards the people that make up the fanbase and how we truly are a family. I have no personal knowledge on the fans of other shows, but I get an impression that the bond the fans of SPN have with not only the stars of the show but the crew as well is a special one. They know us and we know them. Look how accessible the SPN cast & crew are with all the conventions year after year. I don't see that happening with The Vampire Diaries or Once Upon A Time. Makes me feel even more fortunate to be a part of this wonderful show that's touched so many of our lives. We truly have something to be proud of and thankful for.

A cute little moment as Dean wipes the residue found on the emergency door latch onto Sam's jacket. lol
How's everyone doing after last night's emotional roller coaster? I think I'm finally calming down. Good thing since I need to get some sleep. :P But what a wonderful night! So happy for all of us as fans, for Jensen & Jared, and for that hardworking crew up in Vancouver.
Have a good Thursday everyone and job well done on the voting! We did it! \0/ *hugs*
