Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley presented Best Horror Actress at Spike TV’s Scream 2010 Awards. The ceremony took place Saturday night (October 16th) in Los Angeles at The Greek Theater but it won’t air until Tuesday October 19th on Spike. You have to wait till then to see the hottest trio on TV.
Interestingly enough, the award went to Anna Paquin of that other vampire show, True Blood, which all three cast members have said they are a fan of and Somerhalder auditioned for (and lost out to Ryan Kwanten.) Somerhalder also took part in the LOST tribue/award for Final Farewell with Jorge Garcia, Malcolm David Kelley and Henry Ian Cusick.

It’s not often sixteen year olds get to sail solo around the world so when one brave teen takes on the challenge, everyone takes note. Abby Sunderland, has attempted the adventure and she has found herself in the middle of not only the Indian Ocean, but a heated debate about what a teen should or shouldn’t be allowed to do on their own.
Sunderland set sail in her yacht, Wild Eyes, in an attempt to be the youngest person ever to circumnavigate the globe non-stop, alone and unassisted. In April she had to stop in Cape Town, South Africa for repairs and while it ended the non-stop part of her quest, Abby continued on after her auto pilot system was fixed. On June 10th, Sunderland set off her EPRIB’s (emergency beacons) after her boat was turned on it’s side and the mast snapped thanks to a storm near Madagascar. A rescue plane has spotted the teenager and her disabled boat and a nearby fishing vessel has been dispatched to pick up the stranded-at-sea teen.
Abby’s father, Laurence Sunderland, is telling reporters that his daughter’s journey is over for now, but the debate is raging on: was she too young to try it in the first place? Should her parents have stopped her? Would waiting until she was eighteen made that much of a difference? It wasn’t too long ago when the world was asking the same questions of Jessica Dubroff’s parents. Dubroff died in 1996 when she attempted a solo flight at the age of seven and was tragically unsuccessful.
What do you think? Is Abby brave or foolhardy? Are her parents supportive of her dreams or way to lenient? Sound off below!

Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin are in the March issue of Vogue magazine promoting their latest film, Remember Me. The costars joked about the craziness that surrounded filming in New York City:
“It was the most ridiculous experience,” says Pattinson, flashing the sweet, shy smile those crowds hoped to see. “You’re trying to stay in character and you’re trying to walk down the street, but all those people keep reminding you that you’re not this character, you’re—”
“A show pony,” cracks de Ravin, and the two burst into laughter.
de Ravin and Pattinson both have a lot riding on this film – as they look to branch out of their successful TV show/movie roles: Emilie as Claire from LOST and of course, Robert as Edward Cullen of Twilight.
Let’s hear it! Are you planning on catching Remember Me in theaters? What do you think of the photos?

The Vampire Diaries is heating up after it’s long winter nap and just in time for the new episodes, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, and Ian Somerhalder have scored the cover of Nylon Magazine for February. Here is an excerpt:
On the similarities between Twilight, True Blood, and Vampire Diaries: “When the show first started… you automatically thought Twilight. But once you continue, there’s a whole other side of it that goes a lot deeper… It’s about letting everyone know that we’re different but we all respect each other.” –Nina Dobrev
On the sudden success of the show: ““Do I think the show would be successful as it is, if it weren’t for all that? No.” –Paul Wesley
Hey Ian, is there any similarity between LOST and Vampire Diaries? “[My character] is gonna be the coolest character on television. There was no doubt about it. It reminded me of Sawyer, Josh Holloway’s character on LOST. He was always the character I secretly wished I could play.”
The show is hot hot hot and after this past week’s return with “Bloodlines” and all the reveals – the show is just getting better. Somerhalder also returns to ABC’s final season of LOST as Boone Carlyle on February 2nd. Check out TVD latest episode, “Unpleasantville” on Thursday January 28th at 8pm EST.

Good news to everyone who has been watching The Vampire Diaries - Variety is reporting that the CW Network is ordering nine more scripts for the sci-fi drama starring Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Wesley.
As for “Diaries,” the CW has picked up nine more scripts – a good sign that a full-season order is in the cards. And it’s no surprise: Show holds the record as the CW’s most-watched premiere ever (4.9 million viewers).
One Tree Hill is also getting thirteen more eps and Melrose Place (yawn!) is getting six more.
I love Somerhalder’s evil Damon. I miss him on LOST as Boone, but look forward to his return on the island (or where ever the castaways may be…)

The CW network is putting forth it’s vampire show, Vampire Diaries this fall with mega hot actor Ian Somerhalder cast as bad boy/vampire Damon (go here to learn more about the character Damon from the books.) In the video from MTV.com Somerhalder explains that the show will be ‘edgier’ than Twilight simply because it’s a weekly show and that while he thinks the comparisons are good, the end result will be different.
Have you read the books – both the Twilight series from Stephanie Meyers and The Vampire Diaries from LJ Smith? What do you think? Are you going to watch this show this fall?
By the way – Somerhalder was on ABC’s highly popular show LOST a couple of years back but his character, Boone, was killed off. At the San Diego Comic Con this year he confirmed he will be back when LOST does an apparent ‘reboot’ in time.
I don’t care where I get to see those blue blue eyes – I just adore him and he gives Robert Pattinson a run for his money in the sexy vampire department.
