Thanks so much to all of you who submitted nominations and voted. It's time to find out who will be facing off this weekend in our awards ceremony. Just like in the real awards show, I took the top four candidates in each category. You can see how close the voting was --some beloved characters and books lost out by just one vote! So when voting re-opens, please vote!
But remember, it's an honor just to be nominated.
FINAL VOTING WILL BE 12:01 AM FRIDAY FEBRUARY 22 THROUGH 9 PM SUNDAY FEBRUARY 24! Watch for the post on Friday.If you want to know more about the nominations and first round of voting, check out the nomination post and the semifinalist post.
And, there's a new chance to win by dressing one of our nominees. But first, let's find out who made it through to the finals!

Again, FINAL VOTING WILL BE 12:01 AM ON FRIDAY FEBRUARY 22 THROUGH 9 PM EST ON SUNDAY FEBRUARY 24.After the winners are picked, I'll draw three people who participated in the awards and entered in the Rafflecopter. Each winner can choose from the books that inspired our final winner in each category.
New way to enter -- dress a nominee! What would Sydney Sage wear to the awards ceremony? Perhaps that red dress we heard so much about? How about the Darkling? I'm picturing him in a long black coat. Just pick any of the finalists in any category and find them something to wear for the ceremony. You can include accessories if you'd like. Then leave a link in comments to your outfit -- you can link to a web page, a Pinterest board, a blog post, or a Polyvore collage.
If you want to see what other people have suggested, check out or follow my YA Academy Awards Pinterest board. I'm pinning everyone's ideas with their name and comments.
