Thanks so much to all of you who participated! This was really fun and I hope to do it again next year.
A special thanks to those who submitted fashion picks for our final four in each category. If you want to check out what people suggested, I pinned everything on my YA Academy Awards Pinterest board. Hope you're having fun watching the fashions on the real Academy Awards!

I'm so pleased to see that many of the ones I voted for ended up winning especially Warner and Cinder!ReplyDelete
I LOVED all the nominee choices and was so nervous I didn't even look until the voting closed.Delete
This was fun! Some of my fav's won and the some of these books I have on my bookshelf to read, so eventually I'll get to read about these "favorite" characters/books! I'm currently reading the Indigo Spell :-)ReplyDelete
Indigo Spell! Slurpees and fondue and t-shirts and Jet Steele...Delete
Lol! Jet Steele! Love it :-)Delete
Wow, some of those were really close!! I enjoyed this it was really fun!ReplyDelete
How did the Darkling not win best villain? And how did he lose by so much? Poor Darkling. I will comfort you!ReplyDelete
Ahhhh, I love Zuzana, though I probably would have gone Iko. She's even better in Scarlet.
I am SO glad Tris didn't win best leading lady. GOOOOO Cinder. That was so close. *punches Tris*
Adrian! Wah. I'm scared to finish VA, because the one where she went to Russia after Dimitri made me so angry. Adrian's obviously the better choice. For one thing, he's not a teacher who would sleep with his student. UGH.
Darkling is just the best. Now that Warner has gone all "share and care" on us, Darkling RULES!!!Delete
Can't choose between Zuzana and Iko. I just can't.
Cinder was a happy surprise for me, but man that was close!
Usually the whole teenager with much older guy skeeves me out like whoa but somehow in VA it didn't bother me as much. I just think Adrian and Rose would make each other miserable.
Yay!Warner wins! :DReplyDelete
And The Fault in Our Stars by John Green too.Cool!But it was a pretty close one between TFIOS and Pushing the Limits.
There were some VERY close ones....Delete
This was so much fun! I can't believe how close some of these were! I hope you do this again next year!ReplyDelete
Next year I will start earlier and try to do more promo. This time I kept it super-low key, just to see if people were into it or not. Every time I put up a post, I'd be like, "what if no one votes?"Delete
This was so much fun! Thanks for thinking this up!ReplyDelete
So glad Adrian won, I was rooting for Sydney, but Cinder is awesome so I'm okay with it. This was fun and you should do it again :)ReplyDelete
Ahhh! Awesome results :)ReplyDelete
Tris and Four were so close! I really haven't read most of the picks so I really need to get reading and meet these awesome characters that made the list. :)ReplyDelete
Yay, congrats to everyone who won! (LOL, I'm treating them like real people!) I knew Adrian could do it! ;) I'm pretty happy with the winners- thanks for doing this event! :)ReplyDelete
