Performers Of The Month - Nominations For February 2016 *UPDATED: Nominations Closed*

UPDATE 3/7: Nominations are now closed! The polls will go live tomorrow at 12 pm ET and the Top 5 Readers Choice nominees will be revealed then. Thank you to all those who participated in the nominations round this month!

UPDATE 3/3: For those of you still checking this post here is a potentially rewarding opportunity for you. Start a creative "Do Your Part And Nominate" campaign and spread the link to this post around. Once you launch your campaign through any fan forum or social media public forum be sure to leave your campaign link in the comments section or email me the link to your campaign at and be sure to label your email "POTM February Contest" or something along those lines so I can identify it. I will only accept full links as shortened links will not be clicked on and therefore your campaign will not be seen. The creator of the most creative campaign will win the opportunity to nominate 1 performer to be guaranteed a spot on the poll as a Contest Winner Nominee. You have until March 6th at 12 pm ET to send me your entries and I'll notify the winner later that evening so I can get the winners' nominee. The timeframe is kind of short this month but if it goes over well I'll launch the contest again next month when the nominations round starts. For the entry to count it must include the link to this article and an instruction telling people to follow the entry instructions to ensure their nominations count. If you have a nominee that you really want to have a chance in the polls but you don't think will make it into the Top 5 then this is your chance to get that performer to the next round. Have fun and let others outside of our awesome community know they have the chance to reward extraordinary performers from February.


First let me thank all of you for making the January contest such a success and helping to preserve the integrity of this search for the best performers every month. Before you make your nominations please take a minute and think about all the great performances you saw in February and narrow it down to your top 2 outstanding actors and actresses.

Rules for nominee eligibility:
-The actor/actress must have delivered an outstanding performance in the prior month in a new first run episode of a network, cable, or streaming series.
-Guest stars are eligible for nomination as long as they appeared in a new first run episode.
-Netflix and other streaming series performers who are on a series whose whole season was released at one time are eligible for 60 days from the release date. (ex: Fuller House premiered in February and will be eligible for the February and March nomination rounds)
-If a performer wins 2 times within a year they become ineligible to be nominated again until the following year. Some performers have larger fan bases than others and we want every nominated performer to have a fair chance at winning.

As with anything the first outing provided some insight into a couple changes that can be made to the nomination process to make things go smoother. Here are some guidelines for making your nominations that will hopefully help make the whole process go just a bit smoother.

Nomination Guidelines/Rules:
-As stated above only outstanding performers who delivered an outstanding performance in February are eligible. To help ensure this ALL nominations MUST list an episode where the nominee delivered their most outstanding performance during the month. My hope is that this will make everyone pause for a second and think about who you're nominating and why. If enough of the nominations single out a particular episode I will include it on the poll next to the performers name to give voters some guidance on why this nominee earned a place on the poll.
-ALL submissions MUST have a username. Only 1 submission per person! Multiple submissions from the same user will not be permitted and anyone discovered making multiple submissions will have all of their nominations discarded. However, if you think you have submitted twice on accident let me know and I’ll erase the erroneous submission for you and your nominations will still count.
-Please use the performer’s full name as it appears in the credits of the show they appear in.
-When placing your nominations please use the below format as it will help me determine the Top 5 Reader Nominees faster and help expedite the creation of the poll. This is not mandatory but will be a major help to me.
Performer Name (Character Name) (If a guest star please state “Guest Star” here) - Show (Episode # In Which Outstanding Performance Took Place)
-ex: Jane Doe (Jane) (Guest Star) - Jane Doe (1x1)

For the purposes of this column we want to reward outstanding and powerful performances that blow the minds of the viewers so take that to heart when making your submissions. Nominations will be open from 12 pm ET on the 1st of the month to 12 pm ET on the 7th. The polls will then run from 12 pm ET on the 8th to 12 pm ET on the 14th. Winner write ups will be up as soon as possible after the polls close.

Submit your nominations below and then hit the comments to convince others why they too should cast a vote to nominate your nominee. Only the Top 5 nominated performers in each category will earn a spot on the polls so the more nominations someone gets the better chance they have of making the poll as a reader nominee and moving one step closer to the title of Performer of the Month!

January Winners:
Outstanding Actor: Bob Morley (Bellamy Blake) - The 100
Outstanding Actress: Alycia Debnam-Carey (Lexa) (Guest Star) - The 100

All winners throughout the year earn a place on our year end Performer Of The Year poll which will determine the best performer of 2016!


Preferred Nomination Submission Format:
Performer Name (Character Name) (If a guest star please state “Guest Star” here) - Show (Episode # In Which Outstanding Performance Took Place)
-ex: Jane Doe (Jane) (Guest Star) - Jane Doe (1x1)

ALL nominations MUST be submitted with a username and include an episode number where each nominee delivered their best performance in February.
