Nina Dobrev Carries Her Award at LAX Still Wearing PCAs Dress and Headed Home With Ian

Ian Somerhalder was on bag duty while Nina Dobrev carried her new People's Choice Award.

Nina Dobrev didn't even have time to change out of her People's Choice Awards red-carpet dress before heading to LAX with boyfriend Ian Somerhalder to head right back to Atlanta last night. Nina was toting her PCA statue, which she won for her work in The Vampire Diaries. The show has such an avid following that they managed to score her the award, despite not even being on the original nominee list. It's been a huge week for Nina, who also turned 23 on Monday. Nina finished up her thank-yous on Twitter and revealed that this morning, she ate a piece of birthday cake with her PCA sitting on the table with her.

Ian Somerhalder had his own sweet message for Nina, his leading lady on the show and in real life, tweeting, "Congratulations Nina!!! You won!!!! People DO like you;) You rock babe, truly."
