Social voting for the “Ship of the Year” award, presented by Coca-Cola, will launch on Thursday, June 25 with voting exclusively on Tumblr, the home for fandoms. The nominees in the category are “Clexa” from “The 100” (Clarke and Lexa), “Olicity” from “Arrow” (Felicity and Oliver), “Karmy” from “Faking It” (Karma and Amy), “Emison” from “Pretty Little Liars” (Emily and Alison), “Sciles” from “Teen Wolf” (Scott and Stiles), and “Bamon” from “The Vampire Diaries” (Bonnie and Damon). Starting June 25, MTV will launch a unique post for each of the “Ship of the Year” nominees on the MTV Tumblr page, with the winner determined by the post with the largest vote count. Voting for this award will run through July 8.

“The Vampire Diaries” leads the pack of previously announced nominees with three nominations in the “Fandom of the Year,” “Ship of the Year” and “Feels Freak Out of the Year” categories. Previously announced nominees, Mad Max: Fury Road, Star Wars, “Faking It,” “Arrow,” Empire and “Teen Wolf” round out the standings with two nominations each.

“The ‘Fandom of the Year’ award celebrates some of the loudest fandoms in pop culture,” said Ryan Kroft, Senior Vice President of Programming Specials and Events for MTV. “We love having the bracket back in action for the second year in a row.”

"Shipping on Tumblr is serious business, so I'm thrilled we're able to celebrate all of the community's passions by opening it up to a democratic process with MTV Fandom Awards, said Amandalyn Ferri, Tumblr's Culture & Trends expert. "Personally, I ship #Karmy (“Faking It”), but we'll see which couple's hypothetical love prevails when voting on Tumblr ends and San Diego Comic-Con begins."

Beginning on Wednesday, July 8, MTV will launch “Fandom Week,” a take-over by fans and celebrity fans, alike, across every MTV platform with segments on-air, on digital and across MTV’s social platforms.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
