“Harry Potter” voted Best Fandom Forever at mtvU Fandom Awards

Last week we told you about the first ever mtvU Fandom Awards, which celebrate the best fandoms out there. Now, we’re happy to report that the Harry Potter fandom emerged victorious in the Tumblr-voted Best Fandom Forever Award!

Potterheads came out in full force, beating out the fandoms of Sherlock, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Buffy, and Batman.

The award ceremony will air this Sunday, July 27 at 8/7c on MTV. The Potter fandom’s award will be accepted by none other than Matthew Lewis!

Other winners include Veronica Mars for Fandom of the Year, The Vampire Diaries’s Damon and Elena for Ship of the Year, and Game of Thrones’s Purple Wedding for OMG Moment of the Year. John Green, author of The Fault in our Stars, will receive the mtvU Visionary Award.
