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.

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

The Best Recurring Actor And Actress categories for 2013 have been dominated by Supernatural in the past years (both actress & actor titles having gone to them - Maxwell, Sheppard 11 & Miner, Beaver 12) but could there be a new show inning something this year?
The recurring actress category looks poised for a non-Supernatural winner this year, if the semi-final voting is any clue.
Gillian Anderson "Hannibal" led all actresses in the nomination round, and now in the semi-final voting with 244 votes. Runner up this round was a 2012 Best Guest star finalist Felicia Day "Supernatural" with an even 200 votes. Jamie Chung "Once Upon A Time" came in 3rd at 178 votes. A tie for 4th between Sarah Bolger "Once Upon A Time" & Lisa Edelstein "Castle" round out the top 5.
The rest of the finalists are - Amanda Tapping "Supernatural", Anna Torv "Fringe", Alaina Huffman "Supernatural", Bex Taylor-Klaus "Arrow" & Natalie Dormer "Elementary"
Missing the finals - Emma Lahana "Haven" by just 4 votes, Summer Glau "Arrow" by just 6 & Caity Lotz "Arrow" 12 back.
Finalist last year in the category Yvonne Strahovski "Dexter" was 20 votes out of the finals this year for the same role.
Finalist in 2011 in the same category with a different show Magda Apanowicz "Continuum" missed by 37 votes.
On the recurring actor side. The Supernatural dominance seems to still be there.
Osric Chau "Supernatural" a finalist last year, jumped out to a fast large lead & held on in the semi-finals with 204 votes. Raphael Sbarge "Once Upon A Time" made a late surge from nowhere to take 2nd at 174 votes. John Noble "Fringe" a staple of the best actor category (only 1 of 2 actors to make the finals 4 straight years in a category. Other - Jensen Ackles) in years past, now competing for the recurring role in the shows final season had 109 votes. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau "Game Of Thrones" & David Richmond-Peck "Orphan Black" round out the top 5.
The rest of the semi-finalists are - Josh Jackson "Fringe", Richard Madden "Game Of Thrones", James Marsters "Warehouse 13", Adam Copeland "Haven" & Michael Socha "Once Upon A Time In Wonderland".
