2018 Character Cup Nominations




With the Favorite Episode now officially crowned and the episode competition over, it's time to reflect on those characters that moved us with their stories and inspired us to love TV that much more. Whether it's a character on a show that's still on, one long ended, or anything in between, some characters just resonate and pull us into their sagas. The Character Cup is designed to honor those characters, so reflect back on all your favorite TV because it's nomination time.

Nominations will remain open until 12:01 am CST on July 15. Nominating/ranking polls will come immediately after if necessary and more info about the actual contest will be posted then. If you haven't participated in the Character Cup on SpoilerTV before, it's simply a way to show your favorite characters some love and pass the time until the fall season starts. There's nothing serious about it. People nominate their favorite characters and the top 64 characters go head-to-head. So think back on all those great TV shows you've watched in the past or are watching now. Who are your favorites?

While the Character Cup works the same way as other SpoilerTV summer contests, there are some differences. The biggest is that each show can be represented by only 1 character and only 1 character per actor. This allows more variety so more people can participate. Therefore, you can only nominate 1 character per show and 1 character per actor. Also, once a character wins this competition they are retired. A list of previous winners is in the Nomination Rules.  Characters that have been on 2 shows together, like Sharon Raydor and Andy Flynn from both The Closer and Major Crimes, cannot be nominated together as a technicality, since both were regular characters on both shows.

For me though, the best difference is the TV Talk Topic. Each day there is a new TV topic to discuss so even if you don't have anyone to vote for that day, you can still be part of the conversation. If you have any great TV Talk topics, please add them to the nomination form. I can't wait to talk TV with you again.



Nomination Rules (PLEASE READ):



1. Only 1 Submission per person. If you submit multiple times ALL your submissions will be removed.

2. You can nominate 3-4 characters but they must be on the same nomination form. They can be from shows currently airing, those long ended, and everything in between. Only characters from scripted shows are eligible though.

3. Nominating more than 1 character from the same show, 2 characters that have been together on the same shows, or more than 1 character per actor will invalidate your nominations.

4. Only nominations with both the character AND the TV show will be included. Also please use the character's full name if you can. If a character is always called by their nickname, that will work too.

5. Please do NOT nominate Jack Shephard (LOST), Dean Winchester (Supernatural), Castiel (Supernatural), Root (Person of Interest), Sameen Shaw (Person of Interest) or Alex Danvers (Supergirl). These characters are already past winners and therefore cannot run again. Any nominations for them will be invalid.

6. While this is only the nominating stage, it's a great idea to talk up your character in the comments section. Last year we had several characters that people wished they had nominated but forgot about. This is especially true for shows that are not currently airing.

7. Nominations will close at 12:01 am CST on July 15.. Nominating/ranking polls will begin shortly after and will last about 24 hours.

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.
