Best Of TV Awards 2015 - WINNER - Best Guest Star - ENRICO COLANTONI "Person Of Interest"
The 2015 Best Of TV Awards Winner for Best Guest Star is Enrico Colantoni "Person Of Interest".
Enrico Colantoni "Person of Interest" wins Best Guest Star in his 2nd consecutive year of making the finals of a category (Recurring Actor last year). The man who brings to life the bad guy who has a soft spot for the good guys, Carl Elias is officially the first actor on the show to win an acting award for the show.
Aleks Paunovic "The 100" had a solid run near the end of voting and moved all the way up to 2nd, coming from 6th with 2 days left. Nate Torrence "Supernatural" had the lead early on in voting, but too much vote splitting by SPN fans cost him a real shot at a win here, and he narrlowly finishes 3rd ahead of 2 other SPN Guest Stars, Travis Aaron Wade in 4th 1 vote ahead of Timothy Omundson in 5th.
Emily Bett Rickards "The Flash" finished in 6th, quite a bit further back than I predicted in my guesses for this category. Taraji P Henson "Person Of Interest" was 7th. Ksenia Solo "Lost Girl" nabbed an 8th place spot in her 5th consecutive finals for this character which included a 2nd place finish for "Recurring Actress" just last year. Just behind her was Emily Kinney "The Walking Dead' in 9th. Alex Kingston "Doctor Who" was 10th.

The Best Recurring Actor category might be poised to relinquish the dominance that Supernatural has had over it for 4 years. While the show does have 1 finalist in Curtis Armstrong, it seems like he will certainly have some serious competition this year from others on other shows. A bit of a shocker to me, Bradley James from iZombie led voting in the semi-finals. Ian Anthony Dale from "Hawaii Five-0" was tied for 2nd with Armstrong. Winston Duke from "Person of Interest" a 5th place Guest Star finalist last year, finds himself in the hunt for the Recurring honour this year. Noah Wyle, John Noble, Joshua Jackson and Jon Hamm all find themselves competing in this category this year, all previously were finalists in the main actor categories for completely different shows, in the past.
The Best Recurring Actress Category finalists had another minor upset (to me at least) in the semi-finals. Ann Mahoney from "The Walking Dead" a non-factor in round 1 voting where she finished 32nd, led voting this round. Felicia Day from "Supernatural" , the 2013 Winner of this award was 2nd. Alycia Debnam-Carey will have two spots in the finals, one for "The 100" & one for "Fear The Walking Dead". Michelle Borth of "Hawaii Five-0" makes the finals as a Recurring actress this year, after missing out on the finals in the Best Action/Drama Actress category last year. Camren Mannheim led 3 "Person Of Interest" actresses into the finals, along with cara Buono and Annie Ilonzeh. Ksenia Solo, a finalist last year in this category for "Lost Girl" is back with her work on "Orphan Black". Katrina Law, a finalist in this category last year, and caity Lotz, a finalist in the Best Sci-fi/Fantasy Actress category last year represent "Arrow" in the finals this year here. Rachel Nichols "Continuum" makes the finals one last time for her work on the show in its final season, this time in the Recurring category.
The Best Guest Star Category was led by the Winner of the Best Action/Drama Actress category last year. Emily Bett Rickards "The Flash" led voting for the same cahracter that won her the most notable actress award last year, this time on a different show. She was also a finalist last year in this category for this very role, finishing 6th. Taraji P. Henson "Person Of Interest" is a finalist for her work with the character that got her a finalist nod in 2013 in the Best Action/Drama Actress field. Travis Aaron Wade, a finalist for Recurring Actor last year is back in the finals as a Guest Star this year for his work on "Supernatural". Another "Suypernatural" finalist is Timothy Omundson, better known as a 3X finalist for Best Comedy Actor for his work on "Psych". Enrico Colantoni "Person of Interest" is back in the finals again after last year being there in the Recurring Actor category. Julian Richings "Supernatural" gets back into the finals after 1st appearing in this categories inagural award in 2011. Lucy Lawless "Agents Of SHIELD" is back in the finals in this category after finishing 3rd in it last year. Stephen Amell "The Flash" also returns after a 7th place finish last year. Grant Gustin "Arrow" also is back after being a finalist last year. Mark Hamill "The Flash" finds himself as a finalist, fresh off his massive 5 second role in Star Wars The Force Awakens. John Noble is a double finalist this year. With his Recurring honour, and his work on "Forever" he gets a spot in this finals too. Ksenia Solo "Lost Girl" is also a double finalist this year. Her Recurring nod, and her Guest Star nod for "Lost Girl", her 5th finals for this show (3 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Actress, 1 Recurring, 1 Guest). Wil Wheaton "The Big Bang Theory" is back as a finalist after being one for his work on the show in 2012. Robert Knepper "Hawaii Five-0" is back for a 2nd time in the Guest Star category, after being nominated last year for "Arrow" and its his 3rd straight year making at least the semi-finals in this category as he did so in 2013 for "The Blacklist" making him the first ever actor nominated in the same category 3 years in a row for 3 different shows. Rebecca Mader "Once Upon A Time" makes it back to the finals for the first time since 2012 when she did so with her Guest Spot on "Fringe". Sarah Bolger "Once Upon A Time" makes the finals for a 2nd time, last being 2013 as a Recurring Actress. Colin Donnell "Arrow" is back for a 2nd straight year for his work on the show as a Guest Star. Bex Taylor-Klaus the 2014 Best Youth Actress winner, is also back for a 2nd time for her Guest Star work on "Arrow". The 2013 Best Action/Drama Actor winner John Barrowman is in the finals with his work on "The Flash". Bob Newhart "The Big Bang Theory" is in his 2nd consecutive finals for Guest Star.

Best Of TV Awards 2014 - Best Recurring Actor Winner - TAHMOH PENIKETT "Supernatural"
The Winner of the 2014 Best Of TV Award for Best Recurring Actor is.... Tahmoh Penikett "Supernatural"
You have to hand it to Supernatural fans. While other shows like Castle & Arrow have dominated voting in their respective categories some years for the Best Program, actor & actress in their categories, their lack of support of recurring & guest stars on their shows is quite evident by the combined ZERO top 3 finishes in any of those categories. "Supernatural" on the other hand celebrates its 4th Recurring Actor Award with Tahmoh Penikett winning this year with 698 votes.
In 2nd was Kris Holden-Ried "Lost Girl" as the show was forced to compete for the awards offered to those with 3 to 7 appearance in the year due to the odd schedule the show had. The same for 3rd place finalist "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch who had the lead for about a day at the beginning before Penikett passed him.
In 4th was Travis Aaron Wade "Supernatural" well ahead of 5th place finisher "Arrow" actor Brandon Routh. A tie for 6th between "Person of Interest" star Enrico Colantoni & "Supernatural" star Curtis Armstrong. 8th was "Once Upon A Time" star Michael raymond James. In 9th was the other "Sherlock" star Martin Freeman. 10th place tie between David Nykl & J.R. Ramirez both of "Arrow" ahead of 12th place Kevin Alejandro also from "Arrow"

the Recurring Actor category has historically been the "favorite Supernatural Recurring actor" category as 3 different SPN actors have won the title, this year seems like nothing will change there. Tahmoh Penikett & Travis Aaron Wade look like they are in a race to see who will will. Of course, if Sherlock fans ever catch on in the finals, dont count out Benedict Cumberbatch, who because of the shortened seasons of Sherlock finds himself in this category without any complaints from his fans. Brandon Routh from Arrow, Curtis Armstrong from Supernatural and Kris Holden-Ried from Lost Girl all seem like they are within striking distance of making a run at the award as well.
The Recurring Actress category. Historically known as the "favorite Supernatural Recurring actress" category with 3 seperate winners from the show in the past taking the award may be that again. But unlike on the mens side of the category, there does seem to be someone from outside the show looking to play upset. Katrina Law from Arrow finds herself sandwiched between last years 3rd place finalist Alaina Huffman & Erica Carroll from Supernatural in the top 3. 4th place in the finals went to Gillian Anderson from Hannibal, and she finds herself going into the finals again as a 4th place contender. Last years 5th place finalist Bex Taylor-Klaus from Arrow sneaks into the finals by just 7 votes, making it 3 repeat finalists in this category this year. Anna Silk & Ksenia Solo from Lost Girl made the finals, however last years Best Sci-Fi or Fantasy Actress Zoie Palmer did not because of the voting penalties.
I am going to take a moment here to talk about the voting penalties. I had 1 specific person whine A LOT about this. She went thru the trouble of making a long winded excuse why its unfair to Lost Girl specifically and post it on the blog post about the penalties, then when she was proven wrong with my reply, she took back to twitter (where she had badgered me with dozens of tweets PRIOR to the blog post) to bitch & whine about how unfair it is. She then posted a 22 paragraph rant on tumblr, and was again proven wrong with my 37 paragraph reply, and chose to delete my reply from her posts replies. I have no doubt that if this psycho had spent the same time SUPPORTING her favorites, instead of trying to coerce me to ignore the penalties that the shows fans earned, then perhaps the person most impacted by this, Zoie Palmer, would have made the finals of this category. I am quite confident this particular fanbase was capable of scrounging up 60 or so votes, they certainly do most times. To be honest, I thought even with the penalty levied against her, this was still going to be a cakewalk for the actress. Instead, her fans threw a temper tantrum, told people others they werent supporting these awards (like a person with a few 100 twitter followers is a vital endorsement... I dont even think with my 6000 followers I am a vital endorsement of ANYTHING). This 1 particular psycho spent HOURS trying to coerce, bully and defame me to change my mind. As you can see by the results, I did not. Perhaps her, and her supporters, and the fans of THIS SHOW SPECIFICALLY will understand in the future to read rules, and follow them. Instead of, as she put it "ASSUME" things would be how they want them to be. I openly stated I hope these penalties affect at least 1 of the shows candidates from making a finals just to make sure they understand the severity of their punishment... well, they paid for it big time. Choosing the category that they likely valued the most next to best couple to boycott cost them the chance to see their favorite win back to back years in different categories, to be the 1st non-SPN winner of the category. History could have been made. Instead, they whined. Just like Breaking Bad fans did when the show wasnt eligble for the Emmys 1 year, and Fringe fans did last year when their leads were ineligible for the main actor/actress categories, just as Sherlock fans did this year.....wait, correction. I never heard a peep out of ANY of those fanbases over those. Ok, stepping off my soapbox now.
The Finals for these categories will take place in January 2015 HERE
