In the three years the youth awards have been around Chandler Riggs "The Walking Dead" has been a contender each year, and each year has moved up 1 spot from 3rd in 2013, to 2nd last year to winning this years award. The young actor who portrays Carl Grimes on The Walking Dead had lots of competition for this years award, but managed to hold off his challengers.
Riggs was 1 of 4 actors who had the lead at some time. Runner up Jared Gilmore "Once Upon A Time" had the lead at times early on, and even on the 2nd to last day was tied with Riggs before falling behind. David Mazouz "Gotham" in 3rd had the lead breifly in the 1st day of the vote, eventually being passed by others before making a bit of a late surge to push himself back up into 3rd in the end. Sloane Morgan Siegel "Gortimer Gibbons Life On Normal Street" showed his first round vote lead wasnt a fluke by hanging in with actors from more known shows to finish 4th, and was at times leading thru the first two days of the vote. Ironically, last years winner Isaac Hempstead Wright "Game Of Thrones" wasnt 1 of the 4 leaders, he finished 5th this year, just ahead of the 2013 winner Robbie Kay who was back for his 2nd time, this time however with his new show "Heroes Reborn" he finished 6th.
Ross Lynch "Austin and Ally" came in 7th, Tanner Flood "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" nabbed 8th by 1 vote over Raphael Alejandro "Once Upon A Time" in 9th. Benjamin Stockham "About A Boy" got 10th, just ahead of Sean Giambrone "The Goldbergs" in 11th.
