“Fandom of the Year” and “Ship of the Year” nominees are up for the MTV Fandom Awards

The MTV Fandom Awards opens up “Fandom of the Year” and “Ship of the Year” categories for fans to vote on.

MTV will be hosting the 3rd annual MTV Fandom Awards at San Diego’s Petco Park on Thursday, Friday 21st, during Comic-Con weekend, and all the categories are now open for fans to vote on, including “Fandom of the Year” and “Ship of the Year!”

MTV today announced the nominees for “Fandom of the Year,” presented by JOLLY RANCHER Candy, which will feature 32 nominees going head-to-head across multiple platforms in a special social tournament spanning movies, TV dramas, TV comedies and, for the first time ever, video games.  MTV also announced nominees for “Ship of the Year,” presented by FDA, celebrating the relationships that fandoms are dying to see.  The awards will be handed out at the third annual “MTV Fandom Awards,” which will take place alongside the “MTV Fandom Fest” at Petco Park on Thursday, July 21, beginning at 6:30 p.m. PT, leading into the 8:00 p.m. PT taping of the awards.  The show will air on Sunday, July 24, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

The multiplatform, social-first approach to “Fandom of the Year” voting will charge fans from the 32 fandoms across each of the four categories to put their loyalties to the test with tournament-style voting across Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr and Twitter.  Voting is now open on Facebook with all 32 nominees.  To cast a vote, fans must share their favorite nominee image. On July 13, the 16 nominees with the most shares will move on to the next voting round, which will be announced at 2:00 pm ET that day.


Obviously, MTV is taking advantage of the social media platforms and having fans vote through Facebook which fandom is worthy, and then fans would Share their vote for others to vote on as well.  There are 32 nominations for Fandom of the Year, which includes the combination of Movies (Captain America: Civil WarDeadpool, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 2, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Inside Out, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.Star Wars: The Force Awakens, X-Men: Apocalypse) TV shows (some of our faves are “Supernatural,” “Teen Wolf,” “Game of Thrones,” “Arrow,” “The 100,” “The Walking Dead,” The Flash,”) and Games (Dragon Age, Fallout, Pokemon, World of Warcraft.)


MTV is using its Tumblr account exclusively for the Ship of the Year votes, which you can see and vote below by liking that vote. Looking at the list of nominess, they do include both canon and non-canon ships! The one with the largest vote count will be the winner:

For those of you who don’t have a Tumblr account to vote on those, well, we can’t say how to go around that to vote other than asking someone else who does have a Tumblr account to vote for you if they haven’t voted for themselves already.  Same goes for Facebook and/or Twitter.
