1st Annual Just About Write Golden Trio Awards — SPECIAL CATEGORIES

Welcome to the SPECIAL CATEGORY of the 1st Annual Golden Trio Awards! 

If you somehow missed the COMEDY and DRAMA categories, check them out and be sure to vote and keep voting to ensure your favorites make it into the #Top3! Just like with the other categories, the "Special Categories" run similarly: you have until Sunday, August 16 at 8 AM EST to vote in the polls and we will award our top three voters with the honor of receiving their first-ever Golden Trio Awards!

This category is a bit less structured, a bit more fun, and does have something special to one of its categories, which I'll mention momentarily. The writers and I had a great time narrowing down our nominees for Best Villain, Plot Twist of the Year, and Social Media King/Queen (we should send whoever wins first place actual crowns, shouldn't we?). But one category rules them all: OTP of the Year.

Now, MTV recently conducted their fandom awards and used Tumblr solely to count the votes for the Ship of the Year. We're going to do something a little bit similar! We'd ask that you vote here at the polls, but also head on over to our Tumblr page. We've got separate posts for each ship listed below and will be counting the reblogs and likes into the total number of votes for each ship:

If you think that's incentive to vote... wait. Because there's MORE. (I feel like some bad infomercial announcer right now...) If you manage to get one of the actors from your ship's pairing to retweet or post the poll (either the post or the Tumblr one), we'll add 100 votes to your total. If you get BOTH of the actors, we'll throw in another extra 100 votes.

Hook/Emma, Once Upon A Time

  1. Is it 1 vote / reblog or like?

    1. Likes and reblogs both count -- essentially whatever number I see at the bottom of the original post will be what we use. Hope that makes sense!

  2. S.T.E.R.O.L.I.N.E <3

  3. Hey ... I think you guys blocked me on Tumblr, because I can't reblog the post anymore, and I'm not sure why. All I did was vote and reblog - I didn't even comment. I think I may have followed/unfollowed a couple times by accident when I was trying to click the reblog button too quickly, if that's a problem. Is there any way you guys can un-block me so I can vote, please? My username is sweetiepie1019.

    1. They might have blocked you because you were spamming? The same thing happened with the MTV Fandom Awards, and they probably don't want that to happen either.

  4. Carmilla in every category it's listed :)

  5. I've been sitting at my desk all this week for practically 8 hours clicking and voting for #CaptainSwan simply the best!

    1. Wait, hold on ... can we vote more than once in these polls? I assumed it was a one and done thing. The vote didn't change when I tried to vote again.

  6. Good thing I have no college this week so I can just vote for CaptainSwan all day haha

  7. where's Darvey SUITS??
