Which Tumblr Fandom Will Reign Supreme In The mtvU Fandom Awards?

The reblog-a-thon begins now.

Tumblrs, start your engines: the mtvU Fandom Awards are kicking off a competition specifically for you, to determine once and for all which fandom on everyone’s favorite microblogging platform is our BFF (that’s Best Fandom Forever, of course.)

Starting today, six fabulous fandoms have the opportunity to rise to the top and rule them all, starting on MTV’s own tumblr. We’ve created one unique post for each of the Best Fandom Forever nominees, with voting open through July 23. And because this is Tumblr, you know the drill: whoever has the most notes, wins. Which group of pop culture enthusiasts will emerge victorious as our BFF? Read on for a rundown of the nominees.

“Harry Potter”
Before we go any further, it should be noted that the power of the Harry Potter fandom is such that even now, years after the conclusion of both J.K. Rowling’s series and its movie adaptations, Potterheads still managed yesterday to basically break the internet. Best fandom ever? You’re damn right it is. This fandom eats Harry Potter. They sleep Harry Potter. They ARE Harry Potter! And when it comes to winning this competition, Harry Potter himself has nothing but confidence in his followers.

“The Lord of the Rings”

One does not simply walk into Mordor, and one does not simply like “The Lord of the Rings.” What makes this fandom the best? There’s the Gollum paparazzi art, for starters; and of course, the hundreds of fans who are planning their very own elvish weddings. And without this fandom, would we have ever known the glory of the 10 HOUR REMIX of “They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard”?
