Paul Wesley (Donnie, The O.C.) is nominated for Choice TV Breakout Star Male for The Vampire Diaries. Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill), Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) and Hilary Duff (Olivia, Gossip Girl) are all nominated for Choice TV Scene Stealer Female while James Lafferty (Nathan, One Tree Hill) is nominated for Choice TV Scene Stealer Male.

Life can’t always be planned out.”

  • Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) tweeted that he booked a movie that films in October and November…which means he’ll  have to work out the schedule with 90210, especially since he’s been upgraded to series regular.
  • Both new issues of In Touch and Us Weekly have nice group pictures of some of the Beverly Hills 90210 stars at Ian Ziering’s (Steve, Beverly Hills 90210) wedding. There might be some in the other tabloids, too, but I haven’t combed through those yet.

  • The CW sent me screeners for Hellcats, featuring Matt Barr (Ian “Psycho Derek” Banks, One Tree Hill) and Robbie Jones (Quentin, One Tree Hill), as well as Nikita, featuring Melinda Clarke (Julie, The O.C.). After I watch them, I will post some thoughts, like I did for Life Unexpected.

  • You know all those questions we had after the 90210 season finale? On why promised or hinted to things never actually happened? E! Online has some answers and I, for one, am pissed off. (Of course, that’s nothing new for me in regards to this show but still…)
  • Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 9021o) will have a recurring role on ABC’s Scoundrels, which premieres June 20. Thanks to Jethro and Gina for alerting me to the news. Not sure what this means for Call Me Fitz, if anything.

  • I know I said videos from The CW upfront would be published today, but I am having trouble uploading them to YouTube. I appreciate your patience and understanding.
  • Altitude, starring Jessica Lowndes (Adrianna, 90210), now has a distributor. No release date has been announced, though. The promo was…interesting.

  • Coverage of The CW upfront with interviews and/or commentary: Zap2it, Zap2it again, E!, TV Guide, Variety, MTV, The San Francisco Chronicle and TV By The Numbers. There will likely be more tomorrow. I decided not to post stories that were only regurgitations of the press release. Seemed like a waste of my time and yours.
