On Thursday, People's Choice Awards winners were broadcasted live from the Nokia Theatre in L.A. Among the winners are exes Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder who have won the People's Choice Award 2015 for Favourite TV Duo.

It is not the first time the stars of the hit television series "The Vampire Diaries" have won the award for their on-screen chemistry. In 2014, Nina and Ian bagged the People's Choice Award for Best On Screen Chemistry. Ian displayed their chemistry on stage last year and famously kissed Nina. He also hugged a widely grinning Nina on stage even though the couple had broken up some time back. This year, both Nina and Ian were absent from the award show.

Though Nina and Ian's award for Favourite TV Couple does not come as a surprise, there are some who feel that it might get awkward for the ex-couple to be given this award as they have broken up now. "Considering they were once the hottest couple off-screen, too, do you think they ever get a little weirded out by the fact that they are still being bestowed the honor of Favorite TV Duo," writes Rachel Paige of Bustle. She also commends Nina and Ian for maintaining a "professional relationship."

"The Vampire Diaries" is running into its sixth season now, and the couple had been awarded for their on-screen chemistry so many times in the past, too. They both were in a romantic relationship for two years and enjoyed the fame of the series together. Their chemistry impressed the fans of the series and even played a huge role in the popularity of the show.

Nina and Ian were also knows as Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson ("Twilight") of the small screen. But the couple broke-up in September 2013. They claim to remain friends even after the split.

Nina has been linked up with several guys after the split from Liam Hemsworth to Derek Hough to Orlando Bloom. Ian, on the other hand, was recently spotted buying jewellery with his new girlfriend Nikki Reed and also spoke about how "he couldn't be happier" with his good life during the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards. The 41st People's Choice Awards kicked off on Jan. 7, 2015 in Los Angeles.
