The 2015 Best Of TV Awards are well under way. the 6th annual BOTVA's are still closing out some polls for the opening round, and already have shattered the previous record for votes in the first round combined. With over 400,000 votes already cast at the time of writing this post, the 2015 BOTVA's could have 1/2 a million votes before we even get to round two.
The Nomination rounds for Best Non-Human Character or Prop and Best Couple took place a couple weeks ago. The Non-Human Character/Prop category for once has some new competition, as the defending 5X champion, The Impala from "Supernatural" wasnt the run away leader that it has been in past years. Two Person Of Interest challengers come out of the first round with the most votes. In fact, the Impala finished down in 5th in the opening round. Of course, in the Best couple category, lots of voting happened, both for valid balloted nominees, and, as always for some wrong choices. Including the much talked about, and controversial fight by Hannibal fans to get 1 candidate validated by them.
The Non-Human Character or Prop category was ruled in round 1 by Person Of Interest. Bear, the shows large Germany Shepherd dog with 978 votes beat out The Machine, the all knowing mysterious powerful machine with 900. Michonne's Katana from The Walking Dead narrowly finished 4rd with 583, just ahead of The TARDIS from Doctor Who at 545, and the 5X winner in this category, The Impala from Supernatural at 524.
