Doctor Who might not have a panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, but there's a chance its fans could steal the spotlight (twice) at the first-ever mtvU Fandom Awards.
Presented by MTV's college network spin-off, online voting is now open in several categories for the awards, which will be presented on July 27 and air in the US on both mtvU and MTV that evening at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Nominees were announced on July 9.
Doctor Who is listed among TV Dramas including Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries, Sherlock, Breaking Bad and Pretty Little Liars. According to mtvU, the awards will be handled in a "bracket" system, with the top vote-getters moving on to the next round. Doctor Who is directly competing against Breaking Bad and if it wins will move on to the next round. If it makes it past Round 3, the series will be placed head to head against top nominees in the Movies, TV Comedies and Animation categories for the final prize.
The series is also nominated in a special BFF (Best Fandom Forever) category, where its competition is Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sherlock and Batman. (What, no Star Trek?) Votes will be tallied in the form of how many "likes" and reblogs each franchise receives off the voting page.
