Performers Of The Month - December Poll *RESULTS*

Share on Reddit


This final round of 2017 POTM voting has provided two very worthy winners. They have each been nominated many times before but were never able to get the voting support necessary to secure their wins. That all changed this month when they both shook up their respective fields to start off strong and lead all the way to the end.

The actor category was full of many exceptional and powerhouse performers. Whoever was going to win had to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. It’s fitting that the winner portrays a character who has repeatedly defied the odds. Agents of SHIELD’s Iain De Caestecker (Leo Fitz) has been nominated many times before but has never been able to overcome the other actors with much larger voting fandoms. But that all changed this month when the voters showed up in droves to support him allowing him to take the lead early on and hold it for the whole week. He trailed a bit at first, but through slow but steady voting he took the lead within the first hours of the competition and held the lead. Outlander’s David Berry provided some stiff competition constantly threatening to overtake the lead, but he was never ever able to overtake him. The actor category was such a strong group that almost anyone who won would have been a worthy winner. De Caestecker has been a steadily reliable performer who continues to deliver some truly exceptional performances week after week. Even though he’s only been in a couple episodes so far this season he’s made the most of them and delivered some intense performances. He almost single-handedly shouldered the weight of an entire episode and his performance was just as perfectly executed as always. He’s a gifted performer deserving of the title of December’s Most Outstanding Actor.

The actress category was just as competitive. The actresses in this category represent the best of the best. Each of them delivered truly exceptional performances on their respective shows. Out of the gate, Rachel Nichols from The Librarians and Rachel Brosnahan from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel fought for the lead. That is until the ultimate winner quaked into the lead and went on to hold it all the way to the end. Agents of SHIELD’s Chloe Bennet (Daisy Johnson/Quake) took the lead within the first day and held it all the way to the end. She held off Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe who was right on her heels all week, but who trailed off at the end as Bennet surged ahead. Bennet was relatively unknown when she took on the part of Skye, but she proceeded to carve out a name for herself through hard work and one incredible performance after another. She has taken her character on one of the most complex transformative journeys of almost any character on television. Yet, through it all, Bennet has ensured that a part of Skye lives on inside of Daisy. As the character has risen to become more of a leader and warrior Bennet has been given so much to work with and she has done proud by her show always delivering topnotch performances that go above and beyond expectations. She is a very worthy winner to carry the title of December’s Most Outstanding Actress.

Iain De Caestecker and Chloe Bennet will be honored with winner articles that will be out before the end of the month. Please keep an eye out for those in the coming weeks.

These two will join all the prior 2017 POTM winners in the Performer of the Year contest that will launch tomorrow at 6 pm ET and will determine the ultimate 2017 Reader’s Choice Performer of the Year.

Please keep a lookout for the new 2018 rules for POTM which will post late this evening.
