Best Of TV Awards 2011 Winner for Best Couple - Bo And Dr. Lauren Lewis - Lost Girl
The Best Couple of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Bo & Dr. Lauren Lewis - Lost Girl.
One of the interesting things I have found from doing these polls for 2 years now is just how fanatical some fanbases are, including ones I knew nothing of going in. Such is the case of a Canadian show, "Lost Girl", more specifically, the fanbase of Zoie Palmer, who plays Dr. Lauren Lewis. Any & all categories this actress, or her character were in, finished considerably higher than I would have expected for a lesser known cable program. The fanbase was certainly eager to make sure their show got noticed. No more proof of the fans adoration for their favorite character can be seen than in this poll. The show essentially is supposed to revolve around "Bo", yet Bo had 2 different write in campaigns for best couple, the other couple campaign didnt even get out of round 1 of voting...while Bo & Dr. Lewis, not only got out of that round, but crushed the competition in it. Only in the last couple days of the finals, did the runner up start to gain on the sizable lead this couple had generated from the early days of voting.
Bo & Lauren beat out the "Smallville" supercouple of Clark Kent & Lois Lane by just over 200 votes, at 1 point had almost 400 vote lead in the early days of voting. The 3rd place finalists Richard Castle & Kate Beckett from "Castle" were even further behind. Even further back in 4th was the "Fringe" on again/off again pair of Olivia Dunham & Peter Bishop. Rounding out the finalists were Marshall Eriksen & Lily Aldrin from "How I Met Your Mother" just slightly ahead of Snow White & Prince Charming from "Once Upon A Time".
Bo & the Doctor were the only same-sex couple to garner any nominations, this perhaps was what vaulted them to the top as they crushed more known TV couples. I couldnt help but notice when I checked my google analytics, the amount of same sex blogs & websites that directed viewers to these polls to vote for their favorite couple (and other categories as well that Zoie Palmer/Dr. Lauren Lewis & Anna Silk/Bo were in), it rivaled & maybe even exceeded that of show fanbases that are familiar with this website. It was evident, their fans wanted them to get respect, get attention, get noticed. They certainly have now. The 1st ever Best Couple in the Best Of TV Awards polls, is a pair of females. Bo & Lauren.

Lost Girl might be a lesser known cable show at home, but it's been making considerable noise internationally and I think that's the key thing. It's been on UK SyFy for a while now, and the border free internet community have been raving wildly about it for quite some time - in no small part due to the really strong performances in the Bo and Lauren romance - so when the US finally got it, there was an audience ready and waiting to jump onboard.

Great! Zoie and Anna have just created a miracle...such a passion/chemistry/tragedy/angst mixture that almost kill me every episode! Please Lost Girl writers and producers, bring Doccubus back!

I am so glad that they won best couple. I am also VERY interested to see how the US audience takes the idea of this F/F couple when the relationship gets more involved between the two of them (since they are only on Ep 5 of Season 1 here in the states). Considering how the fandom reacted, (large majority negatively) when Dr Magnus kissed a woman in Sanctuary I am interested in seeing how the US will react to the Bo/Lauren pairing. I myself have absolutly no problem with it and its wonderful to see something truely different, in my opinion, about couples. It is very rare in the states to see any kind of same sex relationships, especially women, and I hope we can see more in the future.
