The Best Youth Actor & Actress categories are both new to the awards, and so far, the enthusiasm amongst some of the nominees has been far greater than any of the other categories. No less than 10 of the semi-finalsts either tweeted to their followers on twitter to vote, or retweeted the post I made about them qualifying.
On the male side, the semi-final leader was also the 1st round leader. From "Once Upon A Time" the recently offed Peter Pan character actor Robbie Kay had a sizable lead at 570 votes, more than doubling his closest rival, his castmate & temporary Peter Pan Jared Gilmore who finished with 217 votes. In 3rd was the growing up faster than he ever should have Carl from "The Walking dead" actor Chandler Riggs with 182 votes. Nolan Gould from "Modern Family" was the only other challenger to crack 100 votes with 104 votes, in 5th was Jake T. Austin from "The Fosters" at 81 votes.
The rest of the finalists are Rowan Longworth "Fringe" & Shane Harper "Good Luck Charlie"
Missing the finals - closest to the group was Rowan Longworth "TheKilling" by 10 votes.
On the female side, like the mens side the 1st round winner also led the 2nd round in votes. "Game Of Thrones" attitude filled surviving Stark daughter Arya actress Maisie Williams took the lead with 231 votes. In 2nd was another attitude filled teen, this time Bex Taylor-Klaus, who plays the street-wise Sin from "Arrow" with 199 votes. Sandwiching Taylor-Klaus was another "Game Of Thrones" stark daughter, as Sophie Turner, who plays the elder daughter rounds out the top 3 with 197. Molly C. Quinn from "Castle" was 4th with 165 votes & another Bex Taylor-Klaus selection for her work on "The Killing" rounded out the top 5 with 145 votes.
The rest of the finalists include Taissa Farmiga "American Horror Story", Brighton Sharbino "The Walking Dead" & Gage Golightly "Teen Wolf".
Missing the finals - AnnaSophia Robb "The Carrie Diaries" missed out by 6 votes & Ariana Grande "Victorious" by 16 were the closest of the rest of the semi-finalists.
