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.

Runner up was How To Get Away With Murder with 327 votes. Comfortably ahead of 3rd place finalist Gotham with 227 votes, it had the lead for a short while on day 1 before The Flash took over & never looked back.

The New Program category looks like an all but foregone conclussion with The Flash getting nearly as many votes as 2nd thru 5th combined had. It should also be noted that finalist Outlander led the opening round, and has won several other online polls in the last year of note. Despite their mediocre finish in the semi-finals heare, a win cant be ruled out for this internet phenomenon. Of course How To Get Away With Murder & Gotham will also do their best to rally more fans for the finals.
The Finals for these categories will take place in January 2015 HERE
