When Vampire Diaries costars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev took the stage to accept the award for best chemistry at the People's Choice Awards Wednesday night, they joked about their off-screen romance and subsequent split. "It's a good thing it's not awkward," Dobrev quipped.


It turns out Somerhalder and Dobrev weren't the only exes to run into each other at the PCAs.

Britney Spears won her first People's Choice Award for favorite pop artist, and former flame Justin Timberlake was there to see it, nabbing his own prize for favorite album.

Okay, no, they never really dated in real life, but we were still excited to see the actors who shared screen time in The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates reunite, when Barrymore presented Sandler with the award for favorite comedic movie actor. (Don't miss them together in Blended, set for release this Memorial Day.
