Some reports on Teen Choice Awards 2016 suggest that the awards show is apparently “rigged”. While the issues surfaced back in 2014, it has yet to die down. Teen Wolf star Shelley Hennig addressed the issue and decided to speak up.
Teen Wolf won two awards namely Choice Summer TV Show and Choice Summer TV Actress. Tyler Posey, Cody Christian and Shelley Hennig took the stage. As usual, Dylan O’Brien was nowhere in sight. Hennig bagged the award for the first time. Likewise, she didn’t hesitate on speaking up about the rumoured issue.
As reported on International Business Times, Posey allowed Hennig to speak first before his acceptance speech. The actress, who portrays Malia on the show, told Posey that he “rigged” the award.
“You rigged it, didn’t you?” she said. But before Posey could answer, she told him, “Don’t answer that!” Of course, the actress was indeed joking. On the other hand, Posey addressed the final season of the show in his speech. He promised fans a “memorable” season.
Another International Business Times report stated that the “rigged” issue started after the show in 2014. There was a disclaimer that stated that while fans have the opportunity to vote for their favourites, it revealed that the producers still has a say on who will bring home the award. Eventually, they changed the voting process yet it appears some are still unconvinced.
Meanwhile, Pretty Little Liars won big in the Television Category of the awards show. See list below.
