The 2017 Best Of TV Awards winner in the category of Best Couple is - LUCIFER MORNINGSTAR & CHLOE DECKER "LUCIFER"
This years winner for Best Couple is Lucifer Morningstar & Chloe Decker "Lucifer", giving them their award in this category. The pair won with 167 votes. It is not rare to see a couple who only shared a couple fleeting romantic moments get nominated, or even make the finals, but to win? Till now, it was unheard of. Lucifer & Chloe shared a few hot moments in early 2017 before the writers shelved their will they wont they games permanently. But it was enough for the shows fans to vote for them as a couple. The ultra charismatic Tom Ellis, who is the lead of Lucifer makes the fans of the show so inspired, he probably would have had a chance to win if he made out with a pork chop, let alone the shows current lead actress Lauren German. This is the first BOTVA award for Lucifer in any category. I can stated right now, it will not be their last.
