2013 Teen Choice Awards analysis: Troian Bellisario, Emily VanCamp face off

Teen ChoiceSome categories for the Teen Choice Awards this year may be pretty easy to call, including the one for Choice TV: Drama Series that we talk about at the link here. However, we’re not so sure that the battle to win Drama Actress is really that cut-and-dry at all. You have five ladies here who all possess an immense amount of talent, and they all have sizable followings to go along with it. What could be the determining factor at the end of the day is if fans of their series show support.

Do you want to make your pick known here? While you vote officially for the awards here, we have an unofficial poll below that could give you an idea as to where the votes are going.

The nominees – Troian Bellisario, “Pretty Little Liars” (ABC Family), Blake Lively, “Gossip Girl” (The CW), Vanessa Marano, “Switched at Birth” (ABC Family), Hayden Panettiere, “Nashville” (ABC), Emily VanCamp, “Revenge” (ABC)

The favorite – Just for the sake of “Pretty Little Liars” dominating Twitter, we’re going to go with  Troian Bellisario here for the win. Plus, she could have the best chance here based on the level of her performance throughout the second half of season 3, elevating almost everyone around her as a trained-to-be-perfect young student in Spencer Hasting who was starting to unravel at the seams. The next-strongest candidate is likely Blake since she is a big star away from “Gossip Girl,” with Emily VanCamp in third place.

Who should win – For the first time since we started doing this series a little earlier on in the week, we’re saying that Troian should actually win this, as well. While Hayden was a Golden Globe nominee, “Nashville” fell apart at times in the second half of its first season, whereas, “Pretty Little Liars” and Troian’s performance each got stronger. We knew that she was a great actress, but she showed something within her arsenal that we hadn’t seen before: Pain and instability.
