The 2015 Best Of TV Awards Winner for Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actress is Ruth Connell (Supernatural).
Ruth Connell becomes the 1st actress from Supernatural to win the Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actress award.

Last years winner Jenna Coleman "Doctor Who" ended up 6th this year in a tie with Melissa McBride "The Walking Dead". Candice Patton "The Flash" started strong, even leading for a bit on day 1 before her momentum stalled & finished 8th. Jennifer Morrison "Once Upon A Time" the 2012 winner finished 9th. Tatiana Maslany "Orphan Black" finished just behind in 10th.
2013 winner Zoie Palmer "Lost Girl" finished down in 11th in her 3rd finals. Emilia Clarke "Game Of Thrones" 13th in her 3rd, Ming Na Wen "Agents Of SHIELD" 14th in her 2nd, Anna Silk "Lost Girl" 17th in her th, Ginnifer Goodwin "Once Upon A Time" i18th in her 2nd, Chloe Bennet "Agents Of SHIELD" 19th in her 2nd, Elizabeth Henstridge "Agents Of SHIELD" 20th in her 2nd finals.

The Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy program category has been historically dominated by Supernatural, winning 4 of the 5 honours. This year however, in their 11th season SPN might be in a fight for the 2015 award. Lost Girl, the 2013 runner up made noise in the semi-final voting leading the way over 2nd year TNT hit The Librarians, and Forever from ABC. Both making the finals for the first time. Supernatural was still in the mix, finishing 4th, just ahead of The Flash, the 2014 Best New Program winner. Once Upon A Time, the 2011 New Program winner is also in the finals, along with the 2012 Best Sci-Fi /Fantasy Program Winner The Walking Dead. Agents Of SHIELD is back in the finals after last years final appearance. Game Of Thrones is back for their 3rd straight finals appearance. Doctor Who, last years runner up & the 2013 3rd place finisher, sneaks into the finals in the last spot by only 5 votes.
The Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actor Category semi-final vote was led by Jensen Ackles from "Supernatural". This shouldnt seem like a shock to anyone considering Mr. Ackles is the owner of the most awards in BOTVA history. The shocker... he only led by ONE vote over his co-star Jared Padalecki. This is the 5th year in a row Jared has made the finals, unfortunately, in each of his previous attempts, he has managed to never finish better than 3rd in 2011. Also making the finals from SPN is Misha Collins for his 5th time. Christian Kane from "The Librarians" & Ioan Gruffudd "Forever" finished 4th & 5th & finds their way to the finals for the 1st time.
Robert Carlyle "Once Upon A Time" is in the finals for a 4th time, hoping to better his 4th place finishes of 2011 and 2013. Colin O'Donoghue returns to the finals for his 2nd time & Josh Dallas for his 1st time join Robert from the Once cast in the finals. grant Gustin last years runner up is back for his 2nd finals, along with his other cast mates from The Flash, Carlos Valdes & Tom Cavanagh both make the finals for their 1st times. John Larroquette joins his co-star from The Librarians, Christian Kane, as 1st time finalists. Kris Holden-Ried "Lost Girl" is in the finals for his 2nd time in this category, and 3rd time total for this role. Clark Gregg from "Agents Of SHIELD" is back after a 4th place finish last year in the finals, along with 1st time finalist Ian DeCaestecker. Peter Dinklage "Game Of Thrones" is back for his 3rd time. The only person to ever win this award besides Jensen Ackles, Nornam Reedus "The Walking Dead", the 2012 winner, is back for his 4th time, this time joined by Andrew Lincoln in his 1st finals after 3 consecutive times being a semi-finalist. Peter Capaldi "Doctor Who" is back after his 3rd place finish last year. Lucas Bryant "Haven" makes the finals for the first time, seemingly replacing his co-star Eric Balfour, who was in the finals the last two years. Rahul Kohli from "iZombie" makes the finals in the shows 1st season, and Bob Morley "The 100" makes the finals for the first time.
The Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actress Category will have the last 3 winners of the award all in the finals this year. Still never having had a 2 time winner, the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Actress award is the only main acting award to not have had such. This year, it could finally be the year as the 3 former winners, Jenna Coleman "Doctor Who" 2014, Zoie Palmer "Lost Girl" 2013, Jennifer Morrison "Once Upon A Time" 2012 are all in the finals this year. Palmer in fact is pulling double duty in the finals as she is also up for "Dark Matter".
However, they find some stiff competition in their way. Another OUAT actress led semi-final voting, Lana Parrilla., last years Runner Up is in her 5th consecutive final. Ginnifer Goodwin joins her two castmates in the finals for her 3rd time. Anna Silk "Lost Girl" will join her castmate in the finals for the 4th time in this category, 5th time for the character. Rebecca Romijn "The Librarians" makes the finals for the first time. Candice Patton and Danielle Panabaker "The Flash" both make the finals for the first time.
Ruth Connell "Supernatural" is a finalist for the first time, and is the first ever actress from SPN to make the finals of the main category despite the show having 37 all time BOTVAs, including 4 Recurring Actress BOTVAs. "The Walking Dead" star Melissa McBride is back in the finals for her 2nd time after a 3rd place finish last year, joining her is Danai Gurira for her 1st finals. Hayley Atwell "Agent Carter" makes the finals for the 1st time in her shows inagural year, as is Rose McIver from "iZombie". Tatiana Maslany "Orphan Black" is back for her 3rd time. Ming Na Wen and Elizabeth Henstridge "Agents Of SHIELD" both are back for their 2nd finals. Eliza Taylor & Lindsey Morgan "The 100" are in the finals for their 1st times. Emilia Clarke "Game Of Thrones" is back for her 3rd time, along with 2013 Best Youth Actress winner Maisie Williams in her 1st finals for this category.

The Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actor category has generally belonged to Supernatural star Jensen Ackles (2012 Norman Reedus of The Walkign Dead being the only 1 to topple his reign). This year he looks poised for another victory barring another Norman Reedus tweet style like in 2012 from 1 of the challengers. This year, the main challenger appears to be rookie sci-fi or fantasy drama star Grant Gustin from The Flash. With only 7 of last years 12 finalists back this year in the finals (although the entire top 6 is back), there is some new blood. Led of course by semi-finals runner up Grant Gustin, 4th place Clark Gregg of Agents Of SHIELD who was a semi-finalist last year, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau from Game Of Thrones who seemingly replaced Kit Harington as the GoT 2nd challengers this year to Peter Dinklage. Another newcomer, Peter Capaldi from Doctor Who also makes it, and finally Colin O'Donoghue, a semi-finalist last year makes the finals this year. Last years runner up, Eric Balfour from haven is back, as are Peter Dinklage, Robert Carlyle & Misha Collins. Dinklage managed to place 3rd, but the other 2 barely scraped into the finals, in 10th & 11th, just ahead of the 2012 winner Reedus who slipped into the final spot by a mere 9 votes.
The Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actress category will more than likely have a new Winner this year. Last years winner Zoie Palmer is ineligible for the category this year because of the schedule that her show Lost Girl had this season. The 2012 winner Jennifer Morrison from Once Upon A Time is in the finals, but came in 5th, and was 2nd from her own show behind Lana Parrilla, and along with Ginnifer Goodwin makes 3 finalists for her show, and likely will cause a vote split to water down her chances of reclaiming the title. Tatiana Maslany from orphan Black comes in as the odds on favorite after her opening round 3rd place standing, she managed to win the semi-final vote. A 1st time finalist Lena Headey from Game Of Thrones finished 2nd in the semi-final vote ahead of another 1st time finalist Ming-Na Wen for Agents Of SHIELD. Last years runner up Emilia Clarke from Game Of Thrones came in 7th, while last years 3rd place finalist Emily Rose of Haven came in 4th. Agents Of SHIELD nabbed 2 other finalist spots with Chloe Bennet & Elizabeth Henstridge, giving them as many finalists as Once Upon A Time. Melissa McBride of The Walking Dead and Jenna Coleman from Doctor Who tied for the last 2 spots. Notable ommisions this year are Rachel Nichols from Continuum who finished 6th last year, Emilie de Ravin from Once Upon A Time who finished 8th & Lexa Doig from Continuum who finished 10th. All who made the semi-finals, but missed making the finals by varying margins.
The Sci-Fi or Fantasy program category looks like it could be a battle for Supernatural to try & take its 4th title in the category. The semi-final vote went to Game Of Thrones with 336, a bit behind them was Supernatural still well in the mix at 308. Once Upon A Time managed a 3rd place showing. Last years runner up Lost Girl limped in at 9th, while the 3rd place finalist last year Doctor Who was 5th. Newcomers to the finals this year include Agents Of SHIELD in 4th, Orphan Black in 7th & The Vampire Diaries re-entering the finals for the 1st time since 2010 when it was entered as a Drama before the guidelines of the categories were more solidified, snuck in at 10th place. Only absentees from last year were the now retired Fringe, and Continuum.
The Finals for these categories will take place in January 2015 HERE
The Best Of TV Awards 2013 winner in the category of Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actress is Zoie Palmer "Lost Girl".
The fanbase for "Lost Girl" has show over the years here they are a passionate bunch. Constantly contenders for show & actress awards, Finally, they have their 1st major award here, as Zoie Palmer takes the 2013 Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actress award. With the 2012 winner Jennifer Morrison missing the finals, and the runner up Anna Torv not eligible for the award, Palmer, 4th in 2012, was suddenly a serious consideration for 2013 & narrowly won, beating out "Game Of Thrones" Emilia Clarke by 3 votes, 505 to 502.
In 3rd was Emily Rose "Haven" which I would consider the 2013 break-out show for making an impact here, with 493 votes.
In 4th was Lana Parrilla "Once Upon A Time". In 5th Tatiana Maslany "Orphan Black". In 6th Rachel Nichols "Continuum". In 7th Emilie de Ravin "Once Upon A Time". In 8th Anna Silk "Lost Girl". In 9th Ksenia Solo "Lost Girl". In 10th Lexa Doig "Continuum".
Day 1 Emily Rose took a quick & large lead & held on to it thru most of the voting. Day 5 Zoie Palmer took the lead. Day 7 Palmer & Emilia Clarke shared the lead 6 times between them before Palmer managed to hold on in the end.
Zoie Palmer win by just 3 votes is the smallest in category history. Previous record was 212 in 2012 by Jennifer Morrison.
1st ZOIE PALMER "Lost Girl" 505
