Ranking your Favorite Male Performances on Television for 2019

Greetings TV Fans!  As we wrap up 2019 and move on to 2020, let’s take a look at some of our favorite male performances on television from this past year.  Whether it was a moment of heroism, a sacrifice, or even a breaking point, these male actors went above and beyond to fully embrace their characters.

It was difficult for me to narrow down my favorite male performances for 2019 because there were honestly so many and I didn’t think it was possible for me to choose my absolute favorite one, which is where you came in!    

I ran a three round poll (randomized tournament style) on Twitter and asked for fans to cast their votes so that we can all decide who our favorite male performances are for the year.  Thank you so much for your participation and support, as the tournament was so much fun and actually really competitive!

Round One featured the following Male Performances on TV from 2019:

  • Misha Collins as Castiel from Supernatural
  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan from The Walking Dead
  • Kit Harington as Jon Snow from Game of Thrones
  • Zachary Quinto as Charlie Manx from NOS4A2
  • Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones from Riverdale
  • Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher
  • Penn Badgley as Joe Goldberg from You
  • Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester from Supernatural
  • Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester from Supernatural
  • Richard Harmon as John Murphy from The 100
  • Lennie James as Morgan Jones from Fear the Walking Dead
  • Henry Ian Cusick as Dr. Jonas Lear from The Passage

After your votes, the following male actors moved on to Round Two:

  • Cole Sprouse
  • Penn Badgley
  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan
  • Jared Padalecki
  • Henry Cavill
  • Kit Harington

After your votes in Round Two, the following male actors moved on to the FINALS:

  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan
  • Jared Padalecki
  • Kit Harington

Honorable Mention:  Let’s not forget the captivating and ever so handsome, Henry Cavill, who just came up short of the final round.  Even in Henry Cavill’s monotone Geralt of Rivia voice, he still manages to capture our full attention while fighting off magical beasts with charisma.

After your votes in Round Three, the FINAL results are:

3rd place: Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan from The Walking Dead

We’re all in too, Negan!  Whether he’s making a sarcastic remark, being a complete bad-ass, or manipulating with the best of them, Negan is a scene stealer.  I can’t wait to see what he does next!

2nd place: Kit Harington as Jon Snow from Game of Thrones

Jon Snow will always be one of my favorite characters on a television series.  What’s beyond the wall for Jon?  Endless possibilities, but at least he will have Ghost by his side!

Drum roll please…

1st place:  Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester from Supernatural

I ran a three round poll (randomized tournament style) on Twitter and asked for fans to cast their votes so that we can all decide who our favorite female performances are for the year.  Thank you so much for your participation and support, as the tournament was so much fun and actually really competitive!

Alycia Debnam-Carey WINS as your favorite female performance on TV for 2018!  Congratulations!  

Alycia Debnam-Carey’s performance was so real and heartbreaking this past year on Fear the Walking Dead and her standout performance was in the episode, “Close Your Eyes” (Season 4, episode 10).  It’s like I could feel every breath she took and every word she blurted out, empathizing with the pain screaming inside her character.  While some of the main characters are now gone from the series, Alycia’s performance proved that she is a strong female protagonist, worthy of the lead and I am absolutely ready and willing to follow her in 2019!

Thanks to all the fans who voted!  I wish you all the best for the upcoming New Year!

When Kallie Bennett, a jaded teenage girl plagued by her alcoholic mother and her peers molded out of sheer bubble gum perfection, chases after Alice in Wonderland herself, she ends up lost in her own version of Wonderland, which forces her to face her utmost fears and introduces her to familiar characters with a dark twist. Among these characters is Ches, a gorgeous vampire with a conflicted conscience, who becomes Kallie’s guide and blossoming love interest. She also crosses paths with Queen Hartley, a manipulative witch who has the power to strip away one’s memories and imagination, which brings a bone chilling new meaning to “off with their heads.” In The Search for Alice, Kallie starts to realize that her Wonderland is just as frightening as her own reality and that she cannot always run away from her problems. She must figure out a way to defeat Queen Hartley and return home before it is too late, but she soon learns that escaping Wonderland means leaving Ches behind forever.
