The Best Guest Star of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Michael Rosenbaum - Smallville.
In the last season of the epic CW hit series Smallville, they brought in a plethora of guest stars from the past seasons to go out with a bang & to boost ratings. None were more prominent & anticipated than the return of Clark Kent's nemesis for several seasons, Lex Luthor, played by Michael Rosenbaum. Rosenbaum returned to the show that boosted his career for 1 final episode, the epic series finale.
Michael beat out another Smallville baddie, "Zod" actor Callum Blue finished 2, ahead of a plethora of Supernatural guest stars. James Marsters 3rd, Genevieve Padalecki 4th, Julian Richings 5th & Alona Tal in 6th. Perhaps too many choices for SPN fans prevented them from fighting for 1st. In 7th was Leverage guest star Mark Sheppard, 8th was How I Met Your Mother guest star Katie Holmes, 9th went to Community guest star Michelle Krusiec, and rounding out the finalists was Jennifer Love Hewitt from Hot In Cleveland.

Last year we had the 2010 Best Of TV Awards, the inagural awards here for it. It was responsible for almost 100,000 votes last year.
Winners were selected in 7 categories lasst year- http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/best-of-tv-awards-polls.html
This year, we have even more categories.
To nominate someone, something or a show in its proper category...you must contact us thru 1 of these 3 ways..
1- THIS BLOG POST (not other posts or the contact section),
2- Or on our official facebook fan page http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/canadagraphsweeblycom/101034953308978
3- Thru twitter by at messaging me at @Canadagraphs or @Canadagraphs2 w hashtag #BOTVA2011
Rule 1- ALL Nominations must be based ONLY on work of episodes that aired for the first time in 2011 prior to October 25th, 2011 (except for new shows- up to Nov. 15th permitted).
Rule 2- You can nominate at all available outlets (facebook, twitter or here) if you so choose to.
Rule 3- Sci-fi category covers anything dealing primarily with paranormal based shows. Regardless if its a comedy or a drama, if its paranormal based...its Sci-fi. This will dissolve the frustrating "Vampire Diaries/True Blood isnt a sci-fi, its a drama" argument of last year. TVD/TB is a sci-fi show, and thus its show & actors will compete in those categories.
Rule 4- You do NOT have to vote in every category...but you must vote in at least 3 for your nominations to count.
Rule 5- you can nominate up to 3 in each category... if you want to nominate more than 3, remember, you can nominate thru twitter, facebook and here.
