The Hunger Games is up for 7 People’s Choice Award nominations, and that’s huge. I just got done voting, and I tell you, it’s tough. As a pop culture fanatic with such a soft spot for The Hunger Games, there is a dilemma. Do you just vote for The Hunger Games straight across the board?
It’s hard not to have your biases. I mean, obviously I am biased. I write for this blog after all and run yet another Hunger Games fansite (when I have Internet at home, that is – did anyone miss me while I was gone?). But what about my other biases? I hesitated for a few seconds between The Amazing Spider-Man and The Hunger Games and between Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence. I am a little in love with Andrew Garfield, and I’ve liked Emma Stone as an actress longer.
But let’s face it, that little voice in my head won out, the one yelling “You’re a Hunger Games fansite runner, for crying out loud! How are you going to ask others to vote for The Hunger Games when you didn’t?!” Kind of funny to say after The Girl With The Pearl’s post encouraging HG fans to expand their horizons. But hey, there’s nothing wrong with having a favorite. And there’s nothing like that sense of duty to your fandom.
In all actuality, though, would I really vote for anything else? Probably not. In what we call the real world, I’m still that girl who likes The Hunger Games, and you don’t spend the better part of the last two or so years obsessing over a movie and not giving them your support, especially when you do love the movie and the actors in it.
Now vote! For whoever you want, of course.
But remember, you are reading a Hunger Games blog 😉
