Performer of the Year - 2016 Semi Final - Most Outstanding Actor and Actress Polls

Update: 18th January 2017 The polls are now closed and below are the final standings.



A year ago SpoilerTV launched Performers of the Month in order to allow the fans to have a say in who this site would recognize as the best actor and actress each month. Over the past year the fans have spoken and thanks to each of you, we now have a very impressive list of 2016 winners who are the best of the best that the acting profession has to offer. Now comes the time for us to bestow some extra honors on a couple of these winners.

Performer of the Year is the next step in the Performers of the Month feature. The end game here is to somehow manage to pick out the single best performer from this impressive list to bestow upon him or her the title of Performer of the Year. To help make this nearly impossible decision a little easier there will be an elimination round. In this stage, each actor and actress that has won in 2016 will be placed in a poll for their respective categories. The winners here will be recognized as the Most Outstanding Actor and Most Outstanding Actress of 2016. These winners will then go head-to-head in the ultimate showdown to carry the title of SpoilerTV’s 2016 Performer of the Year. This winner will be named in every Performers of the Month nomination post and poll throughout 2017 as the reigning champion. And as a little extra bonus, the winner of Performer of the Year will receive a special article that will cover all of their performances throughout 2016. To be clear, if the winner played multiple characters throughout 2016, the article will only focus on the work they did as the character they won for portraying. Things covered in their original winner article(s) will likely either not be mentioned or just glossed over as the focus of this winner article will be to recognize them for big acting moments that we’ve not yet been able to honor them for previously. Please note that the completion of the articles for the December winners will take priority. The Performer of the Year article will likely be released sometime in early to mid-February, hopefully before the first 2017 winners are announced. Watch my Twitter account for updates on when that article will be released.

Here are the rules that will govern this contest:

-Only winners from the past 12 months of POTM are eligible.
-Only 1 vote per poll per person.

The Most Outstanding Actor and the Most Outstanding Actress contests will run through 12 PM ET on Wednesday, January 18th. The Performer of the Year contest will begin at 6 PM ET on Thursday, January 19th and run through 6 PM ET on Sunday, January 22nd. My work commitments require that I launch the actual Performer of the Year poll later than usual to ensure that I am available when the event begins. This won’t be an easy contest, but in the end we will have our Performer of the Year, bringing an official end to the first full year of Performers of the Month.

After you vote be sure to hit the comments and try to convince others why the performers you voted for deserve to win.

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.
