2014 Character Cup - Final Stats and Wrap-Up

It's been 63 polls, but we finally have a winner. Congratulations to Dean Winchester of Supernatural, who also got the most votes of any contestant in the contest and was one of two contestants who received over 1,000 votes in each round. Congratulations also go to Janna, for wining out prediction contest with just 14 missed. You rocked! Awesome job! Bragging rights go to you! Other top predictors were Toni, Sharon Seymour, and Dahne, who all missed 16, and Famous 4 It, who missed 17 in total. It's been fun comparing how different the contest turned out and where people thought it would go.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated either through voting, predicting, or commenting. I have had a blast and I hope you did too. I appreciate you playing along and helping hiatus pass more quickly. This contest has been better than I ever dreamed it would be because of you. Thank you! Since I am a trivia fan and because I was asked to, I've gathered some general facts about the contest along with the final rankings below. Also by popular demand, I have been requested to hold a runner-off poll which will last for 24 hours as well, ending around 5 pm CST Thursday. I won't make another annoucement about it but enjoy. I am also putting a poll here about the nominating process next year. This year we were allowed to nominate two males and two females. This ended up with a very balanced contest with 33 females and 31 males included. The question is whether you would like to keep it this way or not have any stipulations on which 4 to nominate. This choice may lead to a majority of male characters in the contest, although we've never done it like this so it could still end up even. As always, happy commenting and voting!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
