Performers Of The Month - October Polls *RESULTS*

Share on Reddit


Once again the actor category was easily won by Outlander’s Sam Heughan. He took the lead right away and never lost it. His powerful performances fueled by his immense talent led him to deliver consistently powerful performances throughout the month of October. His incredible work ethic and mastery of his craft has earned him the highest level of respect amongst his peers and fans alike. It is for these reasons and so much more that he so easily swept the category despite being up against some truly powerful and impressively talented competition. This second win does disqualify him from eligibility for the rest of the year, but he will be a part of the Performer of the Year contest come January.

After a fierce competition Fear The Walking Dead’s Alycia Debnam-Carey deservedly won the title of October’s Most Outstanding Actress. In both this round and September’s round of POTM Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe and Alycia Debnam-Carey did battle for the title. Last month Balfe won the title by a small margin, but this month Debnam-Carey pulled off the win. These two immensely talented actresses shifted the lead back and forth all week constantly overtaking one another. In the end, Debnam-Carey took the lead again just in time to secure the win. There was incredibly fierce competition this month from all the nominees. This group was one of our strongest to date. Alycia Debnam-Carey is an exceptionally gifted actress who has showcased her immense talent in every show she has been on. Fear The Walking Dead has given her a lot of powerful material to work with, but the episode she won for was certainly the strongest episode for her. Though fierce and sincere acting she broke hearts and brought great weight to the precarious position her character was in. She is certainly a deserving winner and more than earned this title. Fear The Walking Dead’s season has ended so she will have no further eligibility this year (unless she guest stars in something before the end of the year), but she will join all the prior winners on the year-end Performer of the Year contest.

The winner articles for Sam Heughan and Alycia Debnam-Carey will be released sometime prior to the end of the month. Keep an eye on my Twitter for an announcement on when to expect the articles. In the meantime please feel free to use the comments to talk about these brilliant winners and their incredible competition.

Original Post

October saw many exceptional performances which have led this round of POTM to have a fierce lineup of nominees. All five of the reader nominated actresses are prior POTM winners with two of them being the 2016 Performers of the Year. They are joined by another staff nominated prior winner making for a total of six former winners competing this month in just te actress category alone. Then there are the other very talented and phenomenal actresses also competing. The actress category might be the fiercest line-up we've had yet. Will a prior winner add to their winning total or will someone skyrocket past them to claim the title for the first time? One thing is for sure, for one of these actresses to win it's going to take a strong showing of voters. The actor category is equally as competitive with a strong lineup of exceptional performers. Who will prevail there? Will it be a former winner or will someone swoop in to claim the title for the first time? Get to voting because the performers need every vote when it comes to competition this stiff.

Now comes the hard part where you can only vote for 1 actor and 1 actress to be crowned as the Performers Of The Month for October. The polls will be open until 6 pm ET on November 14th.
