The finalists for the TV actors in 4 categories have been decided.
Below is a break down of the voting in each category.
Photos of the final vote tallies are at the bottom.
Best actor in a comedy was a bit surprising to me. Clearly someone who is a fan of "Breaking In" caught wind & garnered the support needed to push Christian Slater to the top of the food chain in the 1st round. I really like Breaking In, but even I would call Slaters choice an unlikely 1 as the odds on favorite going into the next round.
The never ending epic battle between Smallville & Supernatural fans heated up again in the sci-fi voting. Tom Welling & Jensen Ackles went down to the wire (not that 1st round of voting really matters all that much). Both have put the numbers up to suggest they will once again be fighting to the end ofr the best actor title. Last year, Ackles won the Best actor award when it was just 1 award, instead of the current formula that sees several categories.
