The 2016 Best Of TV Awards winner in the category of Sexiest Actor is - Christian Kane
This years winner was a pretty unexpected pick to me. While Christian Kane has been wildly popular in the past during his Leverage days, he was never quite "in the hunt" for awards.... often making the finals, but coming up well short. This year, his fandom rallied together to give the man from Dallas, Texas this years title of Sexiest Actor. His only previous effort in the category got him to the semi-finals in 2014.
Kane won with 257 votes, narrowly holding off Jensen Ackles, the former 3X winner. Going into the last day, Kane has a 44 vote lead, but won with just a 24 vote margin.
Jensen Ackles was 2nd, the 3X winner of this award has now been runner up for 3 consecutive years.
Misha Collins was 3rd with 188 votes. This was his first finals appearance since 2013. after 3 consecutive 4th place finishes. This gives him his highest ranking ever.
Colin O'Donoghue was 4th with 157 votes. He finished 7th, 8th & 3rd in his previous finals appearances. David Giuntoli was 5th in his first ever finals appearance with 87 votes.
Jared Padalecki was 6th with 45 votes in his 6th consecutive finals appearance. Stephen Amell, the defending 2X winner stumbled down to 7th this year with 32 votes. Chris Evans was 8th with 26 votes. Chris Hemsworth with 25 votes came in 9th. Tom Ellis was 10th with 24 votes.

The Winner of the 2014 Best Of TV Award for Best Action or Drama Actor is.... Christopher Gorham "Covert Affairs"
It seemed a foregone conclussion that this years winner would be from Castle or Arrow based on the first two rounds of voting & years prior voting. Instead Christopher Gorham "Covert Affairs" pulls out a quite frankly, unexpected win. Gorham who brings to life blind CIA officer Auggie Anderson on the show pulled out all the stops to win. Using twitter & the social celebrity networking site WhoSay to encourage fans to vote for him. This is the 1st time Best Action or Drama Actor Award has been won by someone from a show that has no other awards. This is Covert Affairs 1st & only award as the show recently was canceled by USA.
Runner up Stephen Amell "Arrow" was 3rd last year narrowly beat out the 2013 winner, his co-star John Barrowman by 4 votes. Fair to say the vote split of these 2, and the other 2 Arrow cast on the ballot had some play in this years winner.
In 4th is the 2 time winner of the award Nathan Fillion "Castle". Well back in 5th is James Spader "The Blacklist" in his 2nd finals appearance, up from last years 7th. In 6th is Mads Mikkelsen "Hannibal" down 1 spot from 5th last year. In 7th is Yannick Bisson "Murdoch Mysteries" in his 1st ever finals apperance. In 8th is Alex O’Loughlin "Hawaii Five’O" dropped from the 4th place finish of last year in his 3rd consecutive finals appearance. In 9th is Ben McKenzie from the rookie hit "Gotham". In 10th is Hugh Dancy "Hannibal" finishing in the same place he did last year. In 11th & 12 are 2 more "Arrow" cast in their first finals appearances, Colton Haynes 11th & Paul Blackthorne 12th.
