Fangirl Awards Info

Winners & Nominations, List of Academy Members, FAQ

These nominations do not reflect the opinions of the editors at All Things Fangirl, but rather the Fangirl Academy, made up of 120 lovely ladies who follow us on Twitter, read the blog, or know us in real life. In the case of a tie for the final slot in a category, the ATFG editors acted as the tie-breaker. Some ladies couldn't get their ballots in on time, so we padded the roster by recruiting some geeky friends and neighbors to help out, but the Academy will be voting on the winners.


 After months of building the academy, sending & receiving ballots and tallying up the choices, the day has finally come! All Things Fangirl takes great pleasure in announcing the winners of the first annual Fangirl Awards.

Nominations & winners were decided by tallying up the votes of 120 fangirls from across the world. Sign up to be a member for next year's awards here. Here are the original members, and you can follow a list of the active Twitter members here.

The Fangirl Academy


@ nicolealvarado

If you like a little suspense with your award winners, watch the videos at!

After the videos, you'll find all the winners typed out, once again, following Nathaniel R's method of highlighting first place in gold, 2nd in silver and in some cases, 3rd place in bronze. Thanks to the fangirls who participated in voting and in presenting! I hope next year we have an even bigger academy and even more fangirls presenting :).

Your voice, Hermione. You said my name. Just my name. Like a whisper. So I took it, clicked it and this tiny ball of light appeared. And I knew. It flew towards me, the ball of light, right through my chest and straight through me. Right here. And I knew it was going to take me where I needed to go." - Harry Potter: DHP1

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are these all for one year only, or are some for all-time/the decade?

A: Every answer should be in regards to the year in question only.

Q: For Best Villain & Best Chemistry, should we write actor names or character names?

A: Either will do as I'll know who you mean in any event, but why don't we say character names, plus the name of the movie/tv show, just so it's uniform

Q: What happens if categories like "Most Overrated/Underrated" get so many differing nominees, that there are no 5 that rule them all?

A: In any scenario where the Fangirl Academy's individual answers differ so much that five clear nominees to not exist, the writers at All Things Fangirl will make an executive decision and pick from whatever you guys submit. We will act as the tie-breakers - the Vice President's role in the Senate, if you will. ... Sorry, thinking a lot about the Senate today, as I'm sure all of you are too!

Q: If I throw in some remarks about my nominees, any chance anyone will get to read them?

A: ATFG new writer @TooAdorkable actually had quite the fun idea regarding that scenario: "What if we added an Apples to Apples element? With every nomination, people can write a sentence or give a quote for why they think the nominee is awesome, and then the best, most hilarious, most clever statements/quotes can be included on the final nominations with credit given to the person who penned it." Sound good? Have at it!

Q: The "platonic?" category, is that just platonic? Or does there have to be a relationship (i.e. Harry+Hermione in HP)

A: Platonic, no romantic relationship. Just wanted a category that could account for the actors who have great chemistry without there being a sexual interest. Just any relationship you enjoy that isn't 1. overtly romantic/sexual (i.e. Holmes & Watson - people have their suspicions, but nothing is spelled outright), 2. romantic at all, (i.e. Dr. Parnassus & The Devil - amazing chemistry, not romantic in the slightest). This year, I've decided - if it is sexual chemistry that simply isn't romantic yet (i.e. Brennan/Booth) - that belongs in the Chemistry - Romantic category.

Q: Best Characterization of an Established Figure - what qualifies as an "established figure"?

A: Any figure that has already been established anywhere - in comics, previous movies or tv shows, books, or even history. So it could apply to anyone from a comic book adaptation (i.e. Watchmen), any reboot (i.e. Star Trek), anything based on a book (WTWTA, Lovely Bones) or anything that draws from history & uses real life figures (Inglorious Basterds' Hitler, Night at the Museum, biopics). Originally, the category just applied to figures from comics/books, but due to the variety of nominations I've received already, we've opened it up a bit.

Q: What about British shows? Are they eligible?

A: Shows from across the pond are eligible if 1. They have aired on American television in the year in question (most likely on BBC America or PBS) or 2. They have aired in Britain in the year in question and were additionally, available legally in the US, i.e. through Hulu, Netflix or DVD.
