Performers of the Month - August 2019 Voting **RESULTS**



Results

This turned into quite an interesting round of voting. The Readers’ Choice nominees were in a fierce battle for the top spot for most of the voting period. Cait Fairbanks, Marie Avgeropoulos, and Jason Dohring all gave the ultimate winner a fierce challenge for the title. The Staff side was just as fascinating with the winner not being determined until just prior to voting ending. It was a wild round, so thank you to everyone who turned out to nominate and vote. The August round usually tends to be a bit low-key because of the transition from Summer shows to Fall, but this turned out to be one of the most captivating rounds all summer.


Hannah John-Kamen flawlessly portrays both Dutch and Aneela on Syfy’s Killjoys allowing her to showcase her vast range. Playing one character is hard enough, but trying to breathe life into two very different characters is a whole other level that not many performers can rise to. John-Kamen has not only risen to the challenge, but she has found ingenious ways to differentiate the two characters and give them each their own very distinct personalities and traits. In Three Mutineers (5x6), John-Kamen was tasked with complex stories for both of her characters. She was front and center in both main storylines and delivered flawless performances every second she was onscreen. With Dutch, she had to take the fiery Killjoy on a complicated journey to liberate the prison vessel and obtain ships to further their cause against The Lady (Alanna Bale). Then there was Aneela who was given a complex emotional and physical story as she reunited with Kendry (Mayko Nguyen) and Jaq (Jaeden Noel) and had to protect her family. The tones of both storylines were vastly different and yet she was flawless in her portrayal of both of these fierce women. Her performances as both Dutch and Aneela made her a very worthy winner of the title of SpoilerTV’s August Readers’ Choice Performer of the Month.



Cara Delevingne’s performance in Kingdom of the Moons (1x3) of Amazon’s sumptuous new drama Carnival Row, is one for the ages. She plays Vignette Stonemoss, a fae caught between duty and love in a time of war. Every one of Delevingne’s scenes is electric, as her complete immersion in Vignette’s personality makes every heartbreak and thrill contagious. In this single episode, Delevingne conveys not only her character’s own dauntless spirit but also builds a connection for viewers to Vignette’s entire world and enables them to feel every shred of her grief and yearning when everything that matters to her is lost. The brighter moments are just as wonderfully performed; Delevingne soars enthusiastically through even the most peaceful scenes. In short, she creates magic. For this performance, the SpoilerTV Staff chose her as August’s Outstanding Performer of the Month.

Original Post

August is usually a month full of surprises because most summer shows have wound down for the year and Fall shows have yet to premiere. That lull leaves the door open to surprises for this feature and this round saw us have our first-ever daytime performers nominated. After careful review of the rules of the feature we determined that there is nothing preventing them from being on the poll with their fellow nominees. They join the ranks of a list of talented performers and it will be interesting to see who will prevail this month from this list of powerhouse performers.

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.
