The Winner of the 2014 Best Of TV Award for Favorite TV Character is.... Felicity Smoak "Arrow"
After 4 years of Dean Winchester from "Supernatural" as the pollsters Favorite Character, we have a new winner. Felicity Smoak (played by Emily Bett Rickards) "Arrow" won the honour this year with a new record 1,340 votes, surpassing the old record from 2011 of 1165 by Dean Winchester. Her margin of victor of 318 is also a new record, breaking the record of 186 from last year by Dean Winchester.
Ms. Smoak has had an interesting year. She had her crush tell her he loves her, was used to help her crush/boss take down Deathstroke, and got a new boss at her day job. Felicity has certainly become a fan favorite in the short time of the show. This was the 2nd year felicity was in the finals, finishing 4th last year & showing she might be a force to be reckoned with someday.
Runner up this year goes to Kenzi from "Lost Girl" with 1,022 votes. This is the 3rd year in a row that someone from the show was runner up, after 2 consecutive years of Lauren Lewis being there the fans opted this time to choose a character that died this past year on the show. Last year Kenzi was 14th. After 4 consecutive awards, Dean Winchester "Supernatural" finishes in an unfamiliar 3rd with 822 votes.
In 4th is Bo Dennis "Lost Girl" 786, up from the 7th place she was last year. In 5th was Richard Castle "Castle" with 779, the characters highest ever finish was 13th last year. In 6th was Oliver Queen/Arrow "Arrow" up from lat years 11th place finish. In 7th was Kate Beckett "Castle" which is a sharp rise from the 19th she placed last year. Regina Mills/Evil Queen "Once Upon A Time" was 8th, dropping slightly from 6th last year, Hannibal Lecter "Hannibal" finished 9th one spot lower than his 8th place finish last year. Sam Winchester was 12th, dropping from his 5th place spot last year. While Castiel "Supernatural" last years 3rd place finalist, and the only person besides Dean Winchester to be on the top 5 list every yead, dropped all the way to 13th this year. Kurt Hummel slipped to 14th this year after being 10th last year.
Emma Swan "Once Upon A Time" in 24th returns to the finals for the 1st time since 2012.
Odd statistical anomaly, Amy Farrah Fowler "The Big Bang Theory" in 40th has made the finals 4 times, and has finished last in 3 of the 4 years.

The Winner of the 2014 Best Of TV Award for Best Guest Star is.... Osric Chau "Supernatural"
For the 3rd consecutive year a Supernatural Guest Star wins this award. Osric Chau, the 2013 Recurring Actor Award winner nabs the 2014 honour for Best Guest Star. Only a 31 vote margin of victory over another SPN familiar face, Kim Rhodes in 2nd, Rhodes held the lead several times as her and Chau leapfrogged each other a few times in the last 3 days before Chau took enough of a lead to not be caught. This is the smallest margin of victory in this category to date. In 3rd was "Agent Of SHIELD" guest Star Lucy Lawless.
Another Supernatural guest star, Rob Benedict nabbed 4th ahead of Person of Interest guest star Winston Duke in 5th, Duke held the lead for much of the 1st two days of voting before slowing down considerably. Shockingly, considering the dominance she has had in all her other categories so far this year, Emily Bett Rickards finished a mediocre 6th in the guest star category for her spot on "The Flash" just ahead of Stephen Amell for the same episode. In 8th was "Once Upon A Time" guest star Rose McGowanjust ahead of 9th place Cliff Simon from "Castle" and rounding out the top 10 was a rare 3 way tie with Colin O'Donnell "Arrow", Hugh Dillon "Continuum" & Bob Newhart "The Big Bang Theory" all tying for the spot.
Deon Richmond "Psych" nabbed 13th ahead of Natalie Dormer "Elementary" in 14th. Grant Gustin "Arrow" took 15th ahead of Robert Knepper 16th, Michael Rowe 17th & Charlotte Ross back in 18th also all from "Arrow.

Alaina Huffman with 624 votes joins the ranks of Julia Maxwell, Rachel Miner & Felicia Day as "Supernatural" alum to win the Best Recurring Actress Award. Just like their male cohorts, SPN has won every single award on the womens side for the recurring categories. Huffman, a repeat finalist in this category, finished 3rd last year. Without Felicia Day or Anna Torv from "Fringe" to compete against this year, she won quite handily ahead of another Supernatural alum Erica Carroll in 2nd with 429 votes. In 3rd, last years 4th place finalist Gillian Anderson "Hannibal" with 361 votes, Anderson held the lead breifly opening day, then was passed by Huffman & never again did the lead change.
In 4th was Katrina Law "Arrow" just ahead of "Lost Girl" star Anna Silk in a very shocking 5th. In 6th was last years 5th place finalist, and this years Best Youth Actress winner, Bex Taylor-Klaus from "Arrow". In 7th, another "Lost Girl" actress Ksenia Solo. Finishing 8th was "Murdoch Mysteries" star Arwen Humphries. In 9th was Celina Jade for "Arrow" just ahead of Alex Kingston, also from "Arrow".

The Winner of the 2014 Best Of TV Award for Best Recurring Actor is.... Tahmoh Penikett "Supernatural"
You have to hand it to Supernatural fans. While other shows like Castle & Arrow have dominated voting in their respective categories some years for the Best Program, actor & actress in their categories, their lack of support of recurring & guest stars on their shows is quite evident by the combined ZERO top 3 finishes in any of those categories. "Supernatural" on the other hand celebrates its 4th Recurring Actor Award with Tahmoh Penikett winning this year with 698 votes.
In 2nd was Kris Holden-Ried "Lost Girl" as the show was forced to compete for the awards offered to those with 3 to 7 appearance in the year due to the odd schedule the show had. The same for 3rd place finalist "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch who had the lead for about a day at the beginning before Penikett passed him.
In 4th was Travis Aaron Wade "Supernatural" well ahead of 5th place finisher "Arrow" actor Brandon Routh. A tie for 6th between "Person of Interest" star Enrico Colantoni & "Supernatural" star Curtis Armstrong. 8th was "Once Upon A Time" star Michael raymond James. In 9th was the other "Sherlock" star Martin Freeman. 10th place tie between David Nykl & J.R. Ramirez both of "Arrow" ahead of 12th place Kevin Alejandro also from "Arrow"
