The Sexiest Actor of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Erica Durance.
Commom theme in this years awards. If you won the sci-fi acting award for your gender, you apparently are also the sexiest. The Smallville hottie Erica Durance matched her male award winning counterpart in the sci-fi category Jensen Ackles, by also taking home the sexiest category. Having had the honour of meeting Ms. Durance severla times, I can say I understand the voters decision. She really is as stunning in person as the tv screens & magazines make her appear.
Erica won this category with a bit of a lead over eventual runner up "Lost Girl" star Zoie Palmer. Mila Kunis, who lead for several days, eventually would fade back & finish 3rd. "Fringe" cutie Anna Torv was continually in the race, but would eventually finish 4th. "House" hottie Olivia Wilde was 5th, my personal pick finished 6th, "The Client List" star Jennifer Love Hewitt. Another "Lost Girl" on the list in 7th Anna Silk, 8th is "Once Upon A Time" sherriff Jennifer Morrison, 9th is "Community" cutie Alison Brie, and rounding out the finalists is "The Secret Circle" hottie Britt Robertson.
Like the mens category, there was 5 different leaders over the course of the polls, but only 21 lead changes. Erica, Zoie, Mila, & the 2 Jennifers all had leads, but it was Mila & Zoie that really only had the leads after about day 5 until Erica took over in the final 3-4 days of voting. Interesting observation I made with this result. Erica won sci-fi actress, and sexiest actress.. yet her character Lois Lane finished nowhere close to the top in the favorite character category.

Best Of TV Awards 2011 winner for Best Actress in a Comedy is - KALEY CUOCO - The Big Bang Theory
The Best Actress in a Comedy of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Kaley Cuoco - The Big Bang Theory.
When I was looking at finalists for all the categories, I pretty much expected this outcome. The woman behind many nerds & geeks dream character Penny had the perfect storm of opinion poll potential for voting. Extremely attractive, funny character, on a vastly popular show, and of course, the fact her character has an on again/off again relationship with a self-proclaimed nerd were all the key ingredients to a probable win for this category...and she didnt let them down.
Kaley had a sizable lead on runner up Jane Lynch from "Glee". Lynch had a quick early lead, but failed to keep up the pace & eventually fell behind the eventual champ. 3rd was another "The Big Bang Theory" star, Mayim Bialik, who came close to catching Lynch in the final couple days. 4th was "30 Rock" star Tina Fey, 5th was the oldest finalist in ANY category, 90 year old Betty White from "Hot In Cleveland", Lea Michele from "Glee" came in 6th narrowly passing 7th place Alison Brie from "Community". Maggie Lawson of "Psych" came in 8th & Megan Mullally from "Children's Hospital" rounded out the finalists in 9th.
This category really showed the domination that The Big Bang Theory has in the comedy category. Finishing 1st in this category was not a shock, but a relative secondary character on the show managing to finish 3rd shows that fans of TBBT wildly love anything to do with their show. The ONLY thing that held back a sweep of the comedy categories for them was a well dressed womanizer in the actor category, or TBBT would have swept the genre.
