There is still time to vote folks for the final voting for the contest will end December 30 at 9 p.m. (PT) and the winner will be announced on December 31. Ian Somerhalder should definitely be the winner as he has spent the last three years (if not before) tirelessly fighting for this planet and its creatures besides putting in ten to twelve hour days acting on the Vampire Diaries and paying respectful attention to his fan base both via social media and personal appearances. That is the perfect definition of Celebrity of the Year.
