The Winner of the 2014 Best Of TV Award for Best Action Or Drama Program is.... Arrow (CW)

This year, Arrow returns to the top and it seemed like a foregone conclussion through much of the voting. With this win, Arrow nabs 9 Awards this year. While the show spent much of 2014 killing off characters close to the shows lead character Oiliver Queen, the shows fans have become a nearly unstoppable force on these awards. With 2587 votes, the show sets a new categorry record for most votes, and largest margin of victory 1,499 over runner up 2011 & 2012 winner Castle with 1088 votes. In 3rd is Sherlock in its 1st finals with 772 votes.
In 4th was Covert Affairs with 531 votes in the shows 1st & seemingly only finals appearance on news that it has been canceled. In 5th is Person Of Interest with 358 votes. In 6th Criminal Minds, the only show to be in all 5 finals for the category, down from 3rd last year. In 7th this year is Hannibal in its first finals appearance.

The Best Action or Drama actor category had 1 of the few notable upsets of recent memory last year when secondary star John barrowman of Arrow beat out his own shows lead, and the defending 2 time winner Nathan Fillion from Castle to take the award. This year, those same top 3 finalists from last year are back & in the serious mix for this years honour. Joining them are 1st time finalist Christopher Gorham from Covert Affairs who finished 2nd to Stephen Amell from Arrow for the semi-final vote, and Mads Mikkelsen from hannibal, who finished 4th, a spot higher than he finished in the finals of last years vote. While the top 5 from last year all made the finals this year, the bottom half of last years top 10 was not so lucky, only 7th place James Spader from The Blacklist & 10th place Hugh Dancy from hannibal is returning. Ousted were Johnny Lee Miller of Elementary, Matthew Gray Gubler from Criminal Minds and Jim Caviezel from Person of Interest. New to the party besides Gorham are, Paul Blackthorne and Colton Haynes from Arrow, giving them FOUR finalists. Yannick Bisson from Murdoch Mysteries, and Ben McKenzie from the rookie drama Gotham.
The Best Action Or Drama Actress category has been the "Stana Katic Award" since its inception in 2011 as the actress from Castle has won all 3 times, making her the only actor or actress to win her award every year since its existence. But this year, it might not go her way if Emily Bett Rickards from Arrow has any say in it. The leading vote getting in the semi-finals had more than Katic & 3rd place fellow Arrow cast member Susanna Thompson combined. Three more Arrow cast made the finals with Caity Lotz in 4th, Willa Holland in 5th & Katie Cassidy in 12th, giving Arrow FIVE finalists. Surely vote splitting will be a major concern for the finalists there, giving Katic a bit of a chance still as she was the only finalist from Castle with Molly Quinn just missing out by 5 votes. Despite the seemingly lopsided rrow & Stana Katic race, there are other contenders. Lucy Liu from Elementary finished 3rd last year in the finals to Katic & Rickards, and comes in this year in 6th in the semi-finals. Amy Acker of Person Of Interest was also a finalist last year, finishing 5th and narrowly made it in this year in 11th. Grace Park finished 6th last year & finished 8th in this years semi-finals. Other newcomers besides the 4 newcomers from Arrow include Pauley Perrette from NCIS, Maggie Smith from Downton Abbey and Helene Joy from Murdoch Mysteries. Two finalists from last year Ellen Pompeo from Grey's Anatomy & Kerry Washington from Scandal failed to make the finals this year, along with Celina Jade from Arrow & Taraji P. Henson from Person Of Interest who are no longer eligible.
The Best Action or Drama Program category will again look like a fight between the defending champion Arrow & the former 2 time champion Castle. Perennial contender Criminal Minds finished 3rd last year and finished 8th in the semi-final voting to make it 5 consecutive years in the finals, the ONLY Drama to have done so. Last years New Program runner up Hannibal finished 3rd in the semi-final vote, cementing itself as a contender this year. In 4th is 1st time finalist Covert Affairs. Joining Covert Affairs on the 1st time finalist list is Sherlock, Murdoch Mysteries & The Blacklist. Only 5 of last years finalists made it to the finals this year. Missing the mark this time were retired Breaking Bad, along with Rookie Blue, Elementary, Grey's Anatomy & The Mentalist.
The Finals for these categories will take place in January 2015 HERE

The opening round generated 94,550 total votes. Of those, 5,081 were write-in votes. Unfortunately, only 2,299 were valid write in votes. Leaving 2,782 failed write in votes. More sad, this is not even the worst year percentage wise of ineligible write in votes.
As some of you who follow me on twitter, facebook, tumblr or right here on this site know, I have warned many people this year about writing in nominees in categories they either A- are already nominated in, or B- are not eligible for.
As you have surely noticed on prior results posted. Votes for write in votes of already nominated challengers were taken off their total in the round 1 results.
HOWEVER, as we all know, when you add up the write in votes, and the votes shown for write in votes...they don't even come close to adding up. This is where the write in votes for people, or shows NOT eligible in a category come in. I have tabulated a SUBSTANTIAL list of them over the 27 categories.
As I said repeatedly, doing this would lead to penalties. This year, I have decided the best way to do this is to take votes against a person/character and add them all up, divide them by all the categories they are eligible for round 2 in. So say "Person A" had 72 bad votes, and are eligible in 3 categories, they would have 24 votes against them in each category to be taken off.
How this will be done is, this round, 75% of those votes will be taken off. 18, per category. If the person still makes the finals in all 3 categories, the other 25% will be taken out there, costing them 6 votes each category there. If they only make it in 1 category, all the left over votes will go into the 1 category then, meaning 18 votes will be lost by person A in that category in the finals. If they don't make any finals, then the penalties just vanish since the person whose fans made the incorrect votes was eliminated.
I saw several "whats it matter, its not hurting anyone" comments. Which I suppose is technically right. I mean I wasn't physically harmed (as far as I know) from counting all the excess votes. HOWEVER, my TIME and patience were wasted to add them all up. Each write in vote has to be added up manually because of the countless spelling and punctuation varieties fans came up with for some of them. For 3 years I have warned fans thru the various social media platforms, as well as on here, this COULD happen....and several fanbases chose to ignore the statements. Thus why this year, those votes WILL be collected off the totals. Perhaps NEXT YEAR, certain fan bases will read things more thoroughly.
I did NOT keep track of anyone with less than 3 votes, as about 20% of the nominees had at least 1 against them.... and that's a LOT of people to track. Only the more frequent offenders were catalogued.
