Well, this isn't awkward at all.
The two took the stage together with network president Mark Pedowitz, where the pair not only looked fabulous, but also remained consummate professionals as they came to talk about the show (see more of that here).
"There was no apparent awkwardness onstage," an eyewitness tells E! News, while adding the former couple walked the carpet separately, about 15 minutes apart.
"They were both very professional," a second source says.
The 34-year-old actor and the 24-year-old brunette beauty met in 2009 on the set of their hit CW series.
Both have remained mum on their current relationship status, with the exception of Somerhalder's cryptic tweet, which has since been deleted.
Ian and Nina are both shooting individual movies this summer. Somerhalder will be filming in London, while Dobrev will be in Atlanta.
