Nina Dobrev Wins People's Choice Award For Favorite TV Drama Actress

The fans have spoken! For Vampire Diaries fanatics, last night was a time to celebrate. A major congrats is in order for one of our favorite TV actresses, Nina Dobrev, who took home the People's Choice Award for Favorite TV Drama Actress for her role as Katherine and Elena! The first-ever write-in nominee to make the ballot, Nina's win came entirely from her devoted fanbase.

Her acceptance of the award was a moment to remember -- Hunger Games stars Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence presented the award to a flustered and excited Nina (three of our favorite people EVER on stage together!). Nina looked stellar in a bold green lace dress with nude heels as she gave her acceptance speech.

And in a super-adorable moment, the first thing Nina did after her name was announced was look over and smile at her date and VD co-star Ian Somerhandler. Ian was by her side the whole night, and even tweeted his support: "Congratulations Nina!!! You won!!!! People DO like you;) You rock babe, truly."

Nina, too, has been tweeting up a storm about the PCA's, gushing to her followers, "Thank you for making my dream come true." She also tweeted, "Having a burger as a post award show celebration!"

Some of our other favorite stars had reason to celebrate last night, as well. Lea Michele took home the award for Favorite TV Comedy Actress, Demi Lovato won Favorite Pop Star, and Taylor Swift was honored as Favorite Country Artist.

In honor of Nina's big win, here's a slideshow of some of the always-classy star's most gorgeous red carpet looks.
