The Supernatural stud won for the 3rd time in a row with 1,057 votes, almost 200 clear of his closest competitor "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch, who made his run too late. Cumberbatch was 6th with 2 days left in voting before finally catching some fire, only to end up short in the end as Ackles made it a hat trick of Sexiest Actor honours.
In 3rd was Colin O'Donoghue. The man who brings Captain Hook to life on "Once Upon A Time" was consistently in the top 3, but never managed to keep the momentum going as he dropped what was a close race between him & Ackles early on in the final days.
Rounding out the top 5 "Supernatural" angel extraordinairre Misha Collins, just ahead of Hannibal Lecter himself, Mads Mikkelsen.
A tie for 6th between Jared Padalecki & Stephen Amell. In 8th Johnny Depp. 9th Chris Hemsworth. 10th Chris Evans. 11th Tom Mison. Well back in last place was 3X finalist, Gale Harold.
