Nathan Fillion "Castle" wins his 3rd Best Action or Drama Actor award, but his 1st since 2012. With last years winner Christopher Gorham "Covert Affairs" not being eligible for this yers award due to the shows completion, and the lack of support this year for Arrow nominees, Fillion was able to push his way back to the forefront and regain the title that he missed out on in 2013 & 2014. Nathan brings to life the former novel writer turned NYPD consultant Richard Castle every week. This year saw his character become a private detective, and see his marraige nearly fall apart leading Fillion to take his character in some more unique directions than years past.
Michael Emerson "Person of Interest" was 2nd, just 7 votes behind. This was Emersons first finals appearance since 2012. Yannick Bisson "Murdoch Mysteries" was 3rd, up from 7th last year. Jim Caviezel "Person of Interest" finished 4th making it back to the finals after his 2013 & 2012 appearances. Mads Mikkelsen "Hannibal" finishes 5th despite an overwhelming amount of support in the first two rounds that saw him 2nd & 3rd in those rounds, this was his 3rd consecutive finals.
Stephen Amell "Arrow" in 6th was victim to a real large drop in online support for Arrow this year after being Runner up last year & 3rd the year before. Alex O'Loughlin "Hawaii Five-0" in 7th is in his 4th consecutive finals. Rami Malek "Mr. Robot" tied O'Loughlin in 7th in his 1st year of eligibility. James Spader "The Blacklist" was just 1 vote behind them in 9th in his 3rd consecutive finals. John Barrowman "Arrow" the 2013 winner finishes down in 10th in his 3rd consecutive finals.
Hugh Dancy "Hannibal" 15th was in his 3rd finals, Ben McKenzie "Gotham" was in his 2nd finals. Paul Blackthorne "Arrow" was in his 2nd finals.
Charlie Cox "Daredevil" 11th, Robin Lord Taylor "Gotham" 12th, Jon Huertas "Castle" 13th, Kevin Chapman "Person Of Interest" 14th all were in their 1st finals.
His 7 vote margin of victory is the smallest in the categories history, the previous smallest was when John Barrowman "Arrow" beat Fillion in 2013.
