Starting the year off with a BITE!
Fans of Kyle Schmid (a.k.a vampire Henry Fitzroy on Blood Ties) helped him take home a win as "Sexiest man in the Vampire realm" and, as is the effect most vampires have, the article author Raelynn Coombs, soon found herself enthralled.
Then it was announced this week that Blood Ties will be re-released in the Spring (April 6th) with the complete series on DVD and Blu-ray.

Then, just 2 days ago, at the People's Choice Awards (which, on that night, could have been renamed to The Vampire Choice Awards), the "undead" lived again, with Twilight Saga: New Moon, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries all taking home awards.
In fact, even several "general" winners and nominees, still in some way, could be linked back to "Vampire".
- Alyson Hannigan who won best Tv Comedy Actress, was former witch Willow, on Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
- Keifer Sutherland, nominated for 24, was vampire David on The Lost Boys.
- Katherine Heigl, who won best Tv Drama Actress, has starred in The Ugly Truth, with Gerard Butler, who was of course Dracula in Dracula 2000.
- Johnny Depp, was chosen Fave Movie Actor of the decade, and he will soon play vampire Barnabas Collins in the 3 film adaptation, based on the original tv series, Dark Shadows.
- Sandra Bullock, who won for Best Movie Actress, starred in Speed with Keanu Reeves, who starred as Jonathan Harker in Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula .
As well, today (Jan 8th, 2010) saw the opening the vampire horror/thriller Daybreakers , starring Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe (this will be DaFoe's third time as one of the "living dead", with Shadow of the Vampire and The Vampire's Assistant, being the others).
And there's much more fanged fare on the fore, as seen on author Catherine Karp's Upcoming Vampire Movies & Series: 2010 Edition

In about two weeks are the Golden Globe awards (Sun. Jan 17th), and there's no doubt, that a Vampire related some one/thing (movie, tv, person etc) may win.
Then on Jan. 21st, we have the winter return of The Vampire Diaries.
By mid-June Season 3 of True Blood returns on HBO. (Rumor has it as set for Sunday June 13th).
And by June 30th, Twilight Saga: Eclipse, is set to take (yet another) bite out of the boxoffice.
Hell, even some radio stations are going in for the kill. This sunday, 9am-12pm eastern, Montreal's own CJAD 800 am Trivia Show will run along a vampire theme.
So would this year see "all things vampires" sucking the blood from the competition?
Only time will tell!
In the meantime, here's some fangy Twilight Saga: New Moon parody from this weeks People's Choice Awards. Enjoy!
