    Got my vote in for Jared (SPN). Normally I vote for Jensen in these polls, but this year I truly feel that Jared outshined Jensen just a bit this season. I wish shows like this would be considered by Emmy voters!

  2. sandy on June 24th, 2013 11:29 am

    Jensen Ackles

    There’s no question, Captain Tightpants all the way! Nathan Fillion FTW!! Come on Browncoats let’s show ’em who’s the best in the gorram ‘verse!

  5. Anisha on June 24th, 2013 7:16 pm

    David Boreanaz. Always <3

  6. Jules on June 24th, 2013 8:11 pm

    I told my husband that its a done deal that my “other” hubby will win… he agrees… David Boreanaz all the way!! (it’s complicated – we have an understanding about David) hahaha! I love these stupid polls!!!

  7. Hedwig on June 25th, 2013 5:42 am

    there’s one good best show with one best actor…NATHAN….

  8. Jane on June 25th, 2013 7:00 am

    David Boreanaz is the best Actor, Producer and Director out there in TV land at the moment.. I am proud to say I am one of his Biggest Fans!

  9. maria on June 25th, 2013 1:26 pm

    Jensen Ackles!!!

  10. B on June 25th, 2013 1:53 pm

    Jensen Ackles!!

  11. Jasmine on June 25th, 2013 2:32 pm

    Just because Jared had more opportunity showing his acting skills in the season finale, it doesn’t mean that he “outshined” Jensen. Jensen is always at his best and that’s why his work is always taken for granted. My vote always goes to Jensen.

  12. sharon on June 25th, 2013 2:41 pm

    Jensen always he is amazing and needs to get on major network after SPN, so more people can see this terrific actor!!

  13. Scarlett on June 25th, 2013 2:54 pm

    Jensen Ackles… guy’s got talent! 🙂

  14. Chriscross on June 25th, 2013 2:55 pm

    JENSEN!!! He’s simply the best!

  15. Lydia on June 25th, 2013 3:39 pm

    Jensen,amazing in all seasons!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. twilight on June 25th, 2013 4:44 pm

    This is what people came up with? A bunch of C-listers whom barely anyone notable in Hollywood would know about? Just goes to show that just because someone’s popular doesn’t equal talented.

  17. cat on June 25th, 2013 5:16 pm

    Ha ha ha “Twilight”

  18. Jason on June 25th, 2013 6:28 pm

    Honestly I don’t even know why Jared is in this poll, seeing how many different weird faces you can put in a row doesn’t qualify as good acting, dude can’t be natural for the life of him

  19. twilight on June 25th, 2013 7:01 pm

    Why is Jensen in this poll? He’s not miles better or anything.

  20. Charlotte on June 25th, 2013 9:37 pm

    Jensen completely owned the first half of the season, and then even when the writers pushed him into the background in the second half he was still able to make an impression. That’s actually where his skill comes in, even when the writers give him nothing to do or ignore him completely – he’s so present, and in the scene and has such great chemistry with the other actors, that he still does a good job. Sadly that’s probably one of the reasons why the writers don’t give him flashy stories like they do with the other actors, because they know Jensen can make it work.

  21. Safa on June 26th, 2013 4:12 am

    I voted for Jared Padalecki because of his outstanding performance in season 8 of Supernatural ! He definitely shows he can be a Dramatic Actor as well as action type ! Hope we can see more Dramatic scenes for ” Sam ” In upcoming Season !

  22. sali on June 26th, 2013 9:05 am

    Jared Padalecki for his brilliant performance in SPN during the last 8 years and his amazing performance this year, he is very talented and always give new thing in his performance.

  23. Jody on June 26th, 2013 9:12 am

    Jared Padalecki, he is amazing.

  24. Rose on June 26th, 2013 9:20 am

    Jared Padalecki of course.

  25. Rose on June 26th, 2013 9:21 am

    why this isn’t one vote per IP? now who have free time will vote millions times!

  26. Rose on June 26th, 2013 9:28 am


    Are you expert or something who decide who should be in vote and who is not, why you think your opinion is more valid than anyone else!
    why not focus on voting for your favorite better as trying to push back Jared will not help your favorite.

    Jared is very talented and always give amazing performance, His talent and great skills make the writers give him different, challenging and hard stories/scenes over and over and that actually very telling.

  27. Rose on June 26th, 2013 9:34 am


    Not just in the season finale, but during all the season and the last 8 year.
    As you have the right to see your favorite outshine everyone, others have the same right to see their favorite outshine everyone, Nobody opinion is any more valid than the others, we are not experts we are fans, everyone have his favorites and have his different aspects in judging.

  28. Rachel on June 26th, 2013 9:59 am

    David from Bones <3 him! He's amazing & he does it all!

  29. Kara on June 26th, 2013 11:23 am

    I hate when they make us have to choose between Jensen and Jared, but this time my vote goes to Jared, he deserves a little recognition finally.

  30. I love Castle 4ever on June 26th, 2013 3:26 pm

    Nathan, you are the best. I love you!!! One day I wish met you. NATHAN FOREVER

  31. Sisi on June 26th, 2013 4:00 pm

    Jared Padalecki

  32. Camille on June 26th, 2013 7:39 pm

    Jensen of course! He is the best.

  33. ali on June 26th, 2013 7:39 pm

    Both Jared and Jensen did..outstanding jobs during this season. Season eight was a hell of a season and there was so much emotion to be portrayed for both characters. I feel like Jared took my vote in the last five minutes of the season eight finale, staling it from the phenomenal acting from the crypt scene between Dean and Castiel.

  34. Katie on June 26th, 2013 8:18 pm

    Jared Padalecki (sigh) he is the broken heart and soul of the show

  35. Natalie on June 26th, 2013 8:21 pm

    Jared MultiColoredCatEyes Padalekci!

  36. Amy on June 26th, 2013 8:32 pm

    Jared Padalecki all the way!

  37. Devon on June 26th, 2013 8:50 pm


  38. Steph on June 26th, 2013 9:08 pm

    Jared Padalecki and his unique eyes that says many things without words.

  39. Leish on June 26th, 2013 10:18 pm

    Jared Padalecki of course! He’s the best.

  40. TexasGreatGrams on June 26th, 2013 11:42 pm

    All of the actors nominated did good jobs this past season. Jensen & Jared have been doing great jobs the past 8 years and season gr8 was amazing. It is difficult to determine for whom to vote, but Jensen always gives Emmy worthy performances, whether in dramatic, comedic or action scenes. His talent is amazing.

  41. Lukas on June 27th, 2013 3:06 am

    Jensen, hands down, he saves most of the bros’s scenes, without his talent most of the time those moments would be unbearable to watch

  42. valia on June 27th, 2013 6:52 am

    David <3 <3 <3

  43. Nany on June 27th, 2013 9:59 am

    Jared Padalecki.
    He made many characters in the same role, same show.
    He is the only one who made many different characters and many different versions of his character perfectly.
    he changes from innocent to evil to possessed to even without soul and many more perfectly.
    complete 8 years of hard work and difficult challenges, and on the top of all that the brilliant performance in the last year.
    He is just PERFECT.

  44. Tina on June 27th, 2013 12:50 pm

    I voted for Jared not just because of his outstanding performance in Sacrifice but because I haven’t seen anyone playing so many different characters and do such an amazing job each time.
    What I don’t understand is why Dean fans have to put Jared down in their comments to prove that Jensen is better… Really, is this the only way for you to praise Jensen’s acting?????

  45. Devon on June 27th, 2013 2:37 pm

    How is Jonny Lee Miller not up there. Holy wow, he was ah-maz-ing.

  46. Caro on June 27th, 2013 4:29 pm

    Jared was amazing this year on SPN, especially in the season finale. He certainly does NOT need Jensen to save the brotherly scenes. Jared has meant so much to this show on and off the screen. The bro scenes work because of BOTH Jared and Jensen. Their chemistry on screen is what makes this show something special. Their relationship off of the show makes their bond even that much more stronger on screen. SPN would not be what is without Jared’s contribution. I was so proud of his acting this season as well as in the past.

  47. McKee on June 27th, 2013 11:20 pm

    Jared Padalecki is amazing every season, but this season he’s been jaw dropping emotionally gut wrenching amazing, and done without showboating So I’m throwing my vote to this guy.

    Jared’s chemistry with Jensen is one of the best in the medium, those two really carried the series beyond the original lifespan.

  48. Jimmy Novak on June 27th, 2013 11:27 pm

    Jared Padalecki. He ins’t just playing one character, he created several characters in the same role. There is a reason why writers keep writing strange and interesting storylines for Sam Winchester because everybody knows Jared will be epic with it.

  49. beautix on June 27th, 2013 11:56 pm

    My vote goes to Jared Padalecki, he was absolutely stunning! And his character broke my heart, again. This show is going to kill me one day.

  50. Root on June 28th, 2013 12:19 am

    Jared Padalecki all the way.

    While Jensen and Jared are both vital to their brother scenes, for me Jared’s Sam Winchester is the inspirational one because the character forgives and tries to move forward, until we find out his devastation in the finale and it utterly broke the collective heart.

  51. Lyrain on June 28th, 2013 1:20 pm

    Over the years Jared Padalecki has grown into actor that is Deserving Emmy for word done on Supernatural this last year season eight last scene was so moving anyone that watched it could not have had a dry eye..

  52. Jessica on June 28th, 2013 2:13 pm

    I’m voting for Jensen, because he becomes the characters he plays. He brings so much life to them, especially Dean. Their are a few actors who have made that much of an impact on me. Jensen is definitely one of them and he’s such a nice guy to boot!

  53. Jessica on June 28th, 2013 2:21 pm

    @Rose: I find it more telling that you tell one fan not to put Jared down to bring Jensen up, yet you do the same exact thing to Jensen in the very same post.

    This is all silliness. Both actors have enough merit on their own. People don’t have to put either one down to make the other look good.

  54. Penny on June 28th, 2013 2:43 pm

    Jared Padalecki. He really should have put his name up for the Emmy’s this season, and the CW should have actively promoted him for it.

  55. CJ on June 28th, 2013 2:44 pm

    Jensen – he’s always solid, always amazing with what he’s given it’s a shame they don’t give him the same opportunities with storylines that Jared has had with Sam so that’s why Jensen/Dean wi’ll always have my support. The showrunners might undervalue Jensen Ackles and Dean but the fans don’t.

  56. Rose on June 28th, 2013 2:47 pm


    Sorry it look like you have different description for putting actor down for other one.

    I replied to one who said “I don’t know why Jared is in this vote” that was real insulting , but where I said anything bad about Jensen in my post? I just talked about how I see Jared is good and how he got stories and scenes shows his talent over and over, how that is putting anyone down, how that is bad for Jensen, everyone vote and say what he see about his favorite actor how that in my case is putting Jensen down!

    both are great actors but I just talked about my favorite without insulting anyone.

  57. zoe on June 28th, 2013 2:55 pm

    Always Jensen

  58. sunny on June 28th, 2013 3:14 pm

    Jensen of course.

  59. Sofya on June 28th, 2013 3:38 pm

    Jared Padalecki

  60. Marie on June 28th, 2013 3:56 pm

    My vote goes to Jensen.

  61. silver on June 28th, 2013 3:58 pm

    Jensen Ackles. The guy is talented, charismatic, hot and has screen presence. The show is nothing without him and his character Dean. If anyone deserves the award, it’s Jensen, since the show uses him to prop every other character up while never appreciating what the actor brings to the show.

  62. silver on June 28th, 2013 4:03 pm

    “””He made many characters in the same role, same show.
    He is the only one who made many different characters and many different versions of his character perfectly.”””

    No, not really. Jensen did this way before Jared did, and Misha also did this. JP is given an arc every season while Jensen is stuck propping him and his stories. This is the reason that I feel Jensen deserves acknowledgement, because he’s the one that the show tries to sideline in order to keep the focus on Sam, and yet it is Dean that keeps the audience watching.

  63. L on June 28th, 2013 4:44 pm

    I always gonna vote for Jensen for a simple fact, because Supernatural give nothing to Jensen and he makes this “nothing” something incredible every time. This is how Jensen shows the sovereign capacity of a truly great actor. Jensen does not needs that the showrunners ruin and leave out the character of another actor to be able to shine and show his talent. Jensen does not need to be the one in the spotlights to be incredible.
    So Jensen has my undying loyalty.

  64. Dodo on June 28th, 2013 5:18 pm

    Jared Padalecki is Perfect.

  65. Dodo on June 28th, 2013 5:45 pm


    Jensen is good actor, But for me also Jared many character/versions in SPN is very noticeable.

    Jared characters in SPN:

    Different characters: Sam, Lucifer, Meg, Gary, leviathan, fake demon Sam(clip show)

    Different versions of character: Demon blood Sam, Soulless Sam, hallucinating Sam.

    that what in my mind now, he made a lot of characters and versions of his character and many of them were in a long term run not scene or few scenes.

    Every character or version gave great scenes like for example: Lucifer scenes, Sam possessed with demon Meg, Sam hallucinating from Lucifer, Sam soulless and how he was completely different, demon blood Sam and the epic panic room scenes, so on.

    And this year he was amazing beside his portraying ill Sam with the trials effects was great, and he gave brilliant performance in the finale especially his great heartbreaking scenes ever with Dean and his confession to him.

    So of course everyone has his own opinion.

  66. Lilly on June 28th, 2013 6:01 pm

    “I always gonna vote for Jensen for a simple fact, because Supernatural give nothing to Jensen and he makes this “nothing” something incredible every time. This is how Jensen shows the sovereign capacity of a truly great actor.

    Bingo. The hallmark of a truly great actor is one who can rise above his material, or in Jensen’s case, his LACK of material. It’s blatantly obvious he’s constantly shoved into the role of propping up certain other people’s storylines and his own are always truncated when they start to get too much attention(which is pretty much every time). He creates and builds chemistry with other actors, which is also part of the talent of an actor.

    Jensen got totally cheated this season and yet still managed to be a major player in action, even if not in the text, where he was reduced to nursemaid and cook.

  67. Lais on June 28th, 2013 6:19 pm

    My vote…. jensen why he is an incredible actor since the 1st season. And I’m not counting before Supernatural. Jensen has my vote.

  68. Sara on June 28th, 2013 6:25 pm

    They wouldn’t let Jensen play Michael becauae they knew he would outshine Jared as Lucifer. Jensen has never had the same acting opportunities as Jared has as far as “arcs” go and yet he’s STILL the most popular and more acknowledged through poll wins “best actor” on the show. They can’t even make the roles EQUAL w/o Jensen leaving Jared in the dust acting-wise;-they have to give Dean nothing in order for Jared’s Sam to even be noticed, and if I’m delusional then why have they never really switched things up as regards central myth-arc importance and supporting roles-answer me that.

  69. Lake on June 28th, 2013 8:27 pm

    Jensen Ackles. Jensen has been fantastic for the whole series and he was amazing in Season 8. His take on PurgatoryDean was wonderful to watch, and he was compelling to watch with Dean’s PTSD. I loved the Dean-Benny scenes and I think their last scene together was one of the best scenes of Season8.

  70. Cameron on June 28th, 2013 10:35 pm

    Gosh, what’s with all the Supernatural fans argueing???
    Hopefully either Michael Weatherley or David Boreanaz will win. NCIS and Bones had great seasons! Or at least Jensen Ackles, if it has to be Supernatural

  71. Chase on June 29th, 2013 7:19 am

    Jensen Ackles has been incredible for all 8 seasons of SPN! Dean Winchester is an iconic character thanks to Jensen. Dean is one of the most layered and complex characters on TV and Jensen has been amazing at peeling back those layers. He is a wonderfully nuanced actor.

  72. Bill on June 29th, 2013 9:13 am

    Jared Padalecki. His variation of the same character kept me interested in the series through its jump the shark moments (angels? seriously) and I just like how he portrayed a long suffering hero who doesn’t whine or have pity parties, but forgives and moves on and doesn’t wallow. Jared chemistry with Jensen seals the deal.

  73. Bill on June 29th, 2013 9:16 am

    I have a chance to read through the comments, same ol same ol for the last 8 years; everytime Sam and/or Jared gets a compliment, the other bro fans jump in to put him down to elevate their own favorite. People, if you’re secure in your favorite, there is no need to put down another actor.

  74. kelly on June 29th, 2013 9:58 am

    Jared Padalecki! Honestly you can’t have him without Jensen because those two brings out the best in eachother. Since you are forcing me to choose, ahhhh this season Jared really knocked it out of the park and then some. Even when Mark S. was chewing the scenery, Jared still totally owned the scenes even when his character is sick and suicidal. So my vote is to Jared! This season anyway.

  75. Moses on June 29th, 2013 10:56 am

    Got my vote in for Jared Padalecki. I usually vote for Jensen because his character is badass fun, but I do vote for Jared in seasons when he outshines Jensen and this season he did. Mind you it’s not easy to do because SPN is mainly told through Dean’s POV plus Dean has all the fun lines and he’s more showy while Sam is more of a mystery and is quieter. So when Jared own the season with just a few words since writers like to hide his POV and motives, then its WOW! Emmy should have been Jared’s.

  76. Caro on June 29th, 2013 11:25 am

    If you want to vote for an actor, by all means vote for him, give him props, his credit due, but why stoop to criticism of another nominated? It’s so petty, and showing poor sportsmanship. All of the actors nominated are deserving! There’s no need to put one down in order to bolster your guy!

    My vote goes to Jared Padalecki because his performance this season on SPN was phenomenal! And props to all of the other actors nominated because they’re all great performers~

  77. Abeda on June 29th, 2013 1:09 pm

    Jared Padalecki was phenomenal this season so my vote to him. All actors nominated are highly deserving, no need to tear one down to raise the other, they’re all popular enough so don’t worry!

  78. Adrian on June 29th, 2013 3:04 pm

    Why do they make me choose between Nathan and David? This somehow was the longest decision in my life.. Well, I should rethink somethings then, but still. Impossible!

  79. Martha Morales on June 29th, 2013 3:10 pm

    David Boreanaz. that’s me favorite one 😉

  80. Maggie on June 29th, 2013 3:23 pm

    I am going for DAVID because he is an amazing actor and I have been a huge fan since the very beginning of Bones.

  81. Robyn Jorgensen on June 29th, 2013 3:40 pm

    How the Heck are you supposed to vote against brothers??? My vote is for the Winchesters <3

  82. linda caira on June 29th, 2013 3:46 pm

    First, DAVID is so hot!!! and amazing actor. I’m a big fan since beginning of Bones.

  83. Jamie Hinchliffe on June 29th, 2013 4:09 pm

    You have to vote for David Boreanaz simply the best drama on anyone T.V at the moment, and it stays fresh each week.

  84. toooties on June 29th, 2013 4:24 pm

    david is the best actor

  85. Ashley on June 29th, 2013 5:10 pm

    David Boreanaz 🙂

  86. Leish on June 29th, 2013 5:14 pm

    Jared Padalecki. He has it all, the vulnerability, the looks, the heart, and soul.

  87. cassie on June 29th, 2013 5:26 pm

    jensen & only jensen, he is a great actor with the most expresssive face i’ve ever see (both he & misha). expressiveness, tone of voice, body languige & also acts even if the camera is’nt on him, that’s the definition of good acting & jensen has it all. my vote goes to him even more because he gets sidelined over & over again 8 seasons now with all of his character story arcs been dropped or passed to other characters. in s8 alone they drop 5 dean arcs, 3 we thought sure, purgatory, pstd, ferall hunter & then 2 possible ones the mol & the trials leaving him with nothing, & based on the finale it’s going to be one of the same in s9 too. btw if misha was in i would have vote for him too. sure as hell i would’nt vote for somebody who is not exrpessive & the only thing who manage to do is ”grimaces” completely out of place regarding the scene he plays, with swan song to be a fine example of how someone can destroy a supposedly dramatic scene. as for the so called stealing scene if he takes all the arcs obviously the spotlight moves on him because the story revolves around him. that leaves jensen in the sidelines practically with nothing to work with, so how he is suppose to show his acting abillity if he has nothing to do? but when given the chance jensen rocks, the purgatory scenes are a fine example of that, as it is the episode ”live free or twihard”. so i’m sticking with jensen who is an180 degrees actor who can also sing, dance, voiceover & direct

  88. Dennis on June 29th, 2013 5:46 pm

    Jared Padalecki. He’s a great actor with expressive face and especially his eyes that says so much without words, good thing too because the writers don’t have him saying much. It’s frustrating that so much of his character’s pivotal reactions (like finding out his mother sold him to Hell) happens off screen and for 8 seasons why we continue to be denied his POV and voice in favor of other characters’ back stories. Jared (and Jensen) keeps me interested in the series that have waxed and wane and waxed again through their wonderful chemistry along with their tremendous acting talents.

  89. Jason on June 29th, 2013 6:09 pm

    Jared Padaleckis. He’s talented, charismatic, extremely good looking and has amazing screen presence. The show is nothing without him and his character Sam Winchester. If anyone deserves the award, it’s Jared, since the show uses him to be the mytharc as well as the one character constantly victimized by the supernatural. Really wished Jared would enter his name in the Emmy and CW supporting/promoting him, he so deserves it.

  90. elizabeth on June 29th, 2013 6:50 pm

    Why do they always make the choice so hard? I love Jared and David. 🙁

  91. mary on June 29th, 2013 7:18 pm

    I would have voted all for Fringe but only had one for it.its a toss between Castle and Supernstural.Jensen and Nathan sigh.whats a lady to do.why no syfy here?

  92. Sadie on June 29th, 2013 7:51 pm

    David <3 forever

  93. alsna on June 29th, 2013 7:56 pm

    david;s deserving

  94. Maggs on June 29th, 2013 8:21 pm

    Jensen Ackles because in my opinion he has made Dean into a three-dimensional character. Jensen brings Dean to life. Also, Jensen conveys so much without having to say a word, his eyes and facial expressions convey so much and we feel what Dean feels. Jensen has done this since Season 1 and he was especially amazing in Season 8. Purgatory and post-Purgatory Dean were amazing!

  95. Melanie on June 29th, 2013 9:24 pm

    My vote goes to Jared Padalecki. I can’t say enough how Jared has made me love the character of Sam Winchester. There is no one else that could have played Sam with the heart and soul that Jared has. Over 8 seasons I have watched Jared play Sam in so many different facets that it has left me speechless at times. I can watch Jared play Possessed Sam, Demon Blood Sam, Samifer, Soulless Sam, Broken Sam and any other version of Sam he gives us over and over again. Jared goes above and beyond in every performance. He is so captivating.

    It takes extreme talent and love for his profession to bring what he does with Sam to the TV screen. Sam is such a complex character. Always a mystery and to me broken inside. I am very excited to see what Jared brings to Season 9.

    I will say that I love Jensen and he is also an incredible actor. Without Jensen there is no Dean. I saw in a comment earlier that they felt the writers did not let Jensen play Michael because he would have done better than Jared playing Lucifer. Jensen himself said that Jared did a phenomenal job playing Lucifer. Another comment I read was mentioning that they would not vote for a person with no expression and only grimaces and ruined the dramatic scene in Swan Song. Jared and Jensen owned that whole episode. Jared played that scene to perfection as did Jensen. Jared expressed himself being possessed perfectly as both Lucifer and when he regained control of himself. Speaking for myself, the whole Cas/Dean scene this year was a rip off of Swan Song which could never replace the Sam/Dean scenes in Swan Song.

    Jared and Jensen compliment each other all the time and are brothers off screen as much as they are on screen. As mentioned by both actors when one wins the other wins as well. I would love to see a tie but I know it will not happen so once again I will say my vote goes to Jared Padalecki! 🙂

    Give them EQUAL storylines as regards myth-arc and emo and interactions with other characters and actors-that’s all that’s needed to highlight who deserves this award the most, IMO-and yet we haven’t gotten that since S4-and all the big, long Samngirl “explanations” can’t change that fact.

  97. Melanie on June 30th, 2013 12:02 am

    @sara You are definitely entitled to your views as is everyone else regardless of being a Sam girl or Dean girl. I have read many Dean girls long “explanations” and they all have valid points as do the Sam girls. Everyone hopes their favorite wins but unfortunately that doesn’t happen. I voted for Jared Padalecki. He has proven to me why he is my choice for favorite actor regardless of winning or not.

  98. Sharon on June 30th, 2013 1:20 am

    Jensen Ackles has made me love the character of Dean Winchester like no other actor has made me love a character before. Jensen becomes Dean. You don’t see Jensen acting, you see Dean.

    Jensen has played many different Deans and many different versions of Dean throughout the 8 seasons of Supernatural and you could always tell who was who. He should have won an Emmy for his acting tour de force in The End (and for countless other episodes, like What Is and What Should Never Be).

    In Season 8, Jensen and Dean ran the gamut of emotions, in Purgatory and when Dean got back topside and it was wonderful to watch and feel alongside with Dean (I think the Purgatory storyline was one of the best storyline in the show’s entire series and it should have lasted longer than it did).

  99. black rose on June 30th, 2013 8:21 am

    I like David Boreanaz.

  100. Sarah on June 30th, 2013 1:29 pm

    Wow, some of you Jensen stans/Jared bashers are kind of gross. I hope all of y’all realize how much Jensen would hate seeing people bash Jared’s acting. They’re a matched set, & their amazing chemistry is what makes this show so special.

  101. Melanie on June 30th, 2013 3:54 pm

    @sarah Very well stated. I have to agree with you that Jensen would not like seeing people bash Jared’s acting. They are both so very talented and deserved Emmy’s a long time ago. I feel they do have the best chemistry. I said before they are brothers on and off screen. Supernatural is Jared and Jensen. Without them there is no Supernatural.

  102. Sara on June 30th, 2013 8:44 pm

    *I* actually think Jensen would be perfectly okay with people feeling and thinking however they wanted to feel and think about the acting abilities of other actors-even if he is friends with those other actors. I mean, we are all unique individuals with our own unique thoughts and feelings on any number of things, after all. I think he gets that. Hopefully, he also gets and appreciates that the greater part of his fandom(what’s left of it, at this point, anyway) is predominantly angry with the way the writers of this show have treated(or to be truthful-MIStreated) him and his character-and our favorite-since S5.
    I doubt Samfans or Faux Bi-Bros even want to try and understand that, though. Nor will they ever have to worry about it happening to their fave as Sam(and JP) has been gifted with a role of central importance to the big myth-arc in every single season of this show for the entire run of the series. AND-in spite of the fact that his fans overlook it-he’s also been gifted with many emotional POV episodes, too. They just don’t particularly like what those emotional POV episodes have said about Sam-that’s all-namely that he can be a very self-centered and self-absorbed character at times.
    All Deanfans would like to see is a change in these two things-especially the second-but that would involve more than just lip-service from Sam as regards that AND a season-long myth-arc sl for Dean that would include DEAN in the central role and in dire need of suuport while Sam acknowledges DEAN’S strength to persevere and DEAN’S importance to SAM as someone he’d actually WANT in his life-not just as someone whom he tolerates in it-and barely that-and this, in dialogues with both other characters AND ultimately, with DEAN-as the writers have done in spades and many times over in the last few seasons-only in the reverse.
    Sam(and JP) will become a favorite of mine, when I am convinced that the character(and the actor) are capable of conveying some genuine humility and contrition, along with the anger that seems to be(to me) the only emotion that JP has ever conveyed through his character, in a realistic manner, consistently, since S3.

  103. Jessie on June 30th, 2013 8:55 pm

    Boreanaz. <3

  104. Kelly on June 30th, 2013 9:02 pm

    3 shows,16 seasons ,333 Episodes, David Boreanaz all the way 🙂

  105. BB on June 30th, 2013 9:22 pm

    A Lot of supernatural fans on here. I’ve only seen a few episodes the show airs 10:30-11:00 here in New Zealand.They always put teen shows on really late.David Boreanaz is my number 1 close 2nd Nathan Fillion.

  106. Derek on July 1st, 2013 9:41 am

    Jared is a mediocre actor, the fact that other more talented actors from spn aren’t here instead, is an indicative that looks matter more than real talent. And there’s a difference between bashing someone and having an opinion about their acting skills, I have nothing personal against the guy, I’m not judging him as a person, but I have the right to voice my opinion about his work as much as those who praise him.

  107. Derek on July 1st, 2013 12:06 pm

    David B. is a mediocre actor, he doesn’t even get props for the looks department. I always compare him to Mark Walberg, okay in looks, semi decent in acting talent, obviously have a kick ass agent. I have nothing personal against the guy, I’m not judging him as a person, I’m just being honest here and entitled to voice my opinion about the guy’s work as much as those that obscenely praise him.

  108. Nathalie on July 1st, 2013 12:33 pm

    I vote for Jensen, since he’s the better actor out of all actors on SPN and deserves praise and recognition for his work, even with the lack of material he is given. No one amazes me more than he does. Dean Winchester is an icon! No competition at all.

  109. Alex on July 1st, 2013 1:46 pm

    Alex O’Loughlin! But he’s not on this poll because this is a damn repeat of the PCA spammers (w/ exception of Michael). Alex is by far out the league of the actors on this poll. Alex does drama AND comedy effortlessly and he’s been in movies. The only reason why Jensen is even on this is because his Ackle Army moon over his pouty lips and “jade green eyes” LOL!

  110. Alex on July 1st, 2013 2:05 pm

    Jensen Ackles and Nathan Fillion have the same comedy tricks that makes it embarrassing to watch on their behalf, it’s just not their thing. BassAss characters are their thing, Nathan benefit from his too-soon cancelled series so his shortcomings as an actor doesn’t get displayed. That’s the problem for Jensen Ackles when his character doesn’t go through growth or development so it’s the same damn tricks and ticks for 7 years (Batman voice? Eye. Roll). I was willing to give Jensen a pass until I saw his horror movie where he played a split personality miner, it was basically watching a really bad version of Dean Winchester. Same tricks, not impressed.

  111. Alex on July 1st, 2013 2:13 pm

    David Boreanaz, Michael Weatherby, and Jared Padalecki are the least annoying actors on this poll with above average talents, and that’s not saying much. Jared’s saving grace is probably due to playing different characters in the same role so at least it’s interesting to watch and shows he has better talent than most. David has much better handle on comedy than all the actors so I give him prop. Michael can be amusing most of the time, it just seems he tries too hard some of the time.

    I threw my vote to Nathan Fillion even though he let himself go because I always have a soft spot for Captain Malcolm Reynold.

  112. Jena on July 1st, 2013 2:41 pm

    Choose between Jared and Jensen? No! you can’t make me!
    (token effort of resistance)
    No seriously, they’re booooooooth good!
    (boyfriend laughing at me)
    It’s not as if I watched The Christmas Cottage half dozen times just to see Jared hold his own and then some with the great Peter O’Toole whom I know praised Jared’s acting talents. No, not at all, I was interested in knowing abit more about the late Thomas Kinkade who was a very good Impressionist painter before all that Disney Cottage on Acid mass production crap.

    Oh fine, twist my arm. Voted Jared Padalecki all the way.

  113. Alli on July 1st, 2013 3:24 pm

    Jared Padalecki.
    I’m a sucker for the vulnerable look and out of all the actors, Jared has it. It helps that his character is vulnerable and always victimized by the supernatural. And yet his Sam Winchester is still the hero protecting and saving lives, so it’s a perfect combo of vulnerable+hero.

  114. Ahmed on July 1st, 2013 3:39 pm

    I vote for Jared because he’s the heart and soul of the SPN mytharc and absolutely deserves all praise and recognition for his work in Sacrifice (and all other past work). He was only in The End for 5 minutes but it’s all fans and critics can talk about, even Jensen! Jared amazes me every SPN season. His Sam Winchester is the most inspiring heroic character in television.

  115. John on July 1st, 2013 4:11 pm

    Jared played many different Sams over 8 seasons, my favorite was when Sam was possessed by Meg. My second favorite was soulless!Sam, I just don’t know how Jared could switch the light out from Sam’s eyes. One and always tell which character (demon imposter, Lucifer, soulless, hidden Sam, etc) Jared is playing through subtle alternation. My friends who only watched SPN casually thought a different actor was playing soulless!Sam, that’s how good Jared is.

  116. Linda on July 1st, 2013 8:15 pm

    Jared T. Padalecki
    I enjoy NCIS the most, probably because it doesn’t rip out my heart like Supernatural does. I keep tuning in to SPN because I wonder if poor Sam is ever going to catch a break. Yeah yeah, should have known better.

  117. Naty on July 2nd, 2013 2:24 am

    My vote for Jensen, since he’s the better actor out of all actors on SPN and deserves praise and recognition for his work!!

  118. Maria on July 2nd, 2013 11:59 am

    My vote goes to Jared Padalecki because he made me love Sam Winchester for 8 straight years. I can’t see anyone else who could have played Sam who is the heart and soul of the series. I believe everybody on scene knows this as well since the writers are always coming up with new, strange, and interesting storylines for Sam. With every new Sam story, Jared takes it and left many speechless, even his own co star! Jared goes above and beyond in every performance for Sam who is a complex and sometimes mysterious character, but you are never in doubt that Sam is a good and pure character at heart who often pays for the sins of others.

  119. Jane on July 3rd, 2013 5:16 am

    David Boreanaz Forever!! :))

  120. Sheila on July 3rd, 2013 9:41 am

    Jared Padalecki. Since the Pilot, he has held my attention and he won my heart from his first line – “Do I have to?” It has been amazing to watch him grow as an actor. His ability to bring life to Sam, to show his frailties, strengths and weaknesses has awed me and made me a true fan, and I will continue to follow his career after Supernatural is over. Good luck, Jared!

  121. Trina on July 3rd, 2013 10:51 am

    Definitely Jensen. He truly has deserved an Emmy for years. Jensen has played so many different characters and different versions of Dean, from season 1 when he played a completely different character, the shapeshifter, in Skin to DemonDean, to his amazing turn as two different Deans in The End, Leviathian Dean, HallucinationDean, Purgatory Dean, and many others. He has been remarkable in his portrayal of Dean Winchester and has made Dean into the popular and iconic character that he is.

  122. abby on July 3rd, 2013 11:31 am

    Jensen,he`s my love,i will always vote for him, I`m getting to like castle now but I love(SPN) more

  123. jazzy bones on July 3rd, 2013 11:48 am

    david boreanaz all the way great actor, producer and director ♥ :o)

    david boreanaz all the way great actor, producer and director ♥ :o)
    and he’s so hot i always loved bones and he really deserves it ⊙▽⊙

  125. Tina on July 3rd, 2013 12:27 pm

    “*I* actually think Jensen would be perfectly okay with people feeling and thinking however they wanted to feel and think about the acting abilities of other actors-even if he is friends with those other actors.”
    @Sara, thinking that an actor might not be as good as your favorite one is totally different than tearing him down by saying that he steals all the storylines from the other main character or saying that the PTB are afraid to give your favorite a storyline because he will overshadow the other co-lead.
    And Jensen would be disgusted about the way some of his fans talk about his partner who happens to be like his brother in real life too. He’s proved it over and over again when some “fans” give Jared a hard time at cons.
    I dare you if you ever meet him to try and put Jared down in front of him. Come and tell me if he would be “perfectly OK”

  126. jenna on July 3rd, 2013 1:41 pm

    he's an amazing actor and HES SO FUNNY!

  127. cassie on July 3rd, 2013 6:21 pm

    for those who speak of friendship, if was an actress & had an awesome lead at my side like jensen which was also friend with & watch producers-writers ignore his character blatantly & constantly would have gone pronto tptb & have a talk with them about it even it is’nt my freaking business, just to defend my friend & equilise things. since dean=jensen does’nt have a story arc for seasons now & get’s sidelined over & over again what conclusion you drew from that?

  128. Samantha on July 3rd, 2013 6:32 pm

    From screenrant- “No one, however, shines brighter than David Boreanaz. Throughout the episode, he shows Booth attempting to work out his feelings onto paper, but words aren’t his thing any more than social interaction is Brennan’s. His soliloquy on the couch, pouring his heart out to his baby daughter while his parter watches silently in the wings, is nothing short of gut-wrenching. And their subsequent embrace on the couch with the camcorder still rolling is proof that the chemistry between these two leads is still going strong.” Kelly, he’s done WHAT wow “3 shows,16 seasons ,333 Episodes” haven’t seen Buffy and Angel i think i should.

  129. Ellie on July 4th, 2013 7:45 am

    Jensen Ackles!!!! Though he was sidelined in the season 8, he did an amazing job!!! Honestly, I don’t think that Supernatural is a great show but still better than other sci-fi shows thanks to Jensen’s great performance.

  130. Tina on July 4th, 2013 4:45 pm

    @cassie just because you and some others think that Jensen/Dean is sidelined doesn’t mean it’s a fact. For many fans -Dean fans and bro fans- Dean’s storyline is great.
    And as if bashing Jared’s acting wasn’t enough, now you will call him a “bad friend” to Jensen too? You guys are pathetic. Jared and Jensen have repeatedly said that they’re each other’s biggest supporters. Unless you believe Jensen is a hypocrite who doesn’t believe the things he says or he is simply stupid for not realizing that the one he considers his best friend isn’t worth it, I’d suggest you shut up. Or if you believe that he is one of these things or both then you should not call yourselves Jensen/Dean fans.

  131. Sasha on July 5th, 2013 2:47 pm

    My vote would have to go to Jensen here out of all the nominated. He does a lot with very little – the role of sycophantic servant is so boring and repellant to me, I have to give him kudos alone for not completely making me wanna tear my eyes out during it.

    It`s certainly not his fault that the writers don`t give him flashy mytharcs nor do I believe it is a secret testament to the writers/producers thinking he doesn`t have the talent to carry them as I feel some people are implying here in the comments. When he got juicy arc material every once in a blue moon, he completely mesmerized me so nope, not buying that.

    And when he gets…cooking and hand-wringing, while it is impossible to be mesmerizing there, he still manages to make it semi-bearable. There are few actors that would manage even that.

    That said, Nathan did some brilliant work this year with the kidnapped-Alexis storyline. And of course there are other actors not on this poll who I would give a huge kudos too.

  132. Ark on July 5th, 2013 4:25 pm

    My vote go to Jared out of all the nominated, all actors are good in their own right, I just prefer Jared Padalecki breathing heart and soul into his character. Jared does a lot with very little, meaning he doesn’t get the funny lines or have screen time with other characters. For some reason the writers keep wanting to make him a mystery, thought I don’t know how isolating his character helps in any way. Jared deserves full credit for fleshing out his character even as showrunners/writers change the character every season but Jared still gives us the Sam we love and recognize.

  133. Kathie on July 5th, 2013 4:43 pm

    Jared Padalecki is pure brilliance in the finale, so my vote goes to him. Jensen is wonderful too and there ought to be a J2 category or something because seriously, those two have the best on screen chemistry.

  134. Gina on July 5th, 2013 5:16 pm

    Amazingly I’ve watched all the shows that each of the nominated actors are in, just not at the same time, and some (like Bones) I’ve fell out of and others I sometimes start watching again (like NCIS). But the show I’ve watched consistently is Supernatural, and Jared and Jensen deserve a lot of credit due to their amazing chemistry with eachother, reminds me how Gillian and David’s incredible chemistry carried us through the ups and downs of 7 seasons of X-Files.

    That said, my vote goes to Jared Padalecki, he’s done amazing work with Sam Winchester, a character that’s often in a no-win situation but Jared makes us really feel for his character and admire Sam’s grace, forgiveness, selflessness, and amazing empathy through all his sufferings. Sometimes I want to stop watching Supernatural because I just don’t know how much more of Sam’s sufferings and heartaches I can take, but Jared keeps me watching and I’m glad for it.

  135. Sandy on July 5th, 2013 6:59 pm

    voted for Jared Padalecki, he and Jensen were amazing in the finale, their chemistry is the best on television. I would vote for Jensen too if i could, Jared just really own his scenes and especially in the church scene.

  136. Moses on July 5th, 2013 7:16 pm

    Jared. He tore up the church scene, whether it’s with Mark S. or Jensen A, Jared totally own it.

  137. cassie on July 5th, 2013 7:56 pm

    @ tina, will not even bother to respond to your terrible manners. instead i will respond to the statement that dean-jensen has a story arc, where exactly did you see it? in the purgatory arc who was dropped in ep1 (& no the cas, benny scenes don’t count as dean’s individual purg arc), to his pstd who was dropped in the 2nd episode? to his badass hunting ferocity (purg effect) who went out of the window? to the mol & trials who where given to sam pronto? or the fact that they turn dean in to a babysiter in the second part of the season? all this in season 8 alone. & don’t get me started on the previous seasons cause i can write for hours. as for the friendship thing strickly logically speaking friends always have each others backs, which means when one friend sees that his friend is treated crapilly get ignored or get sidelined does what ever it takes to change that & defend his friend cause that’s what friends do (obviously that goes both ways) so if he does’nt act what kind of friend is then? as for jensen he proved many times he is an actual friend through actions which are the ones who count, not only words. as for pada’s acting sorry to brake it to you but he is in the category of ”actors” who populate hollywood meaning expressivenes alined with the scene (drama or comedy) it’s not their thing, they just throw the lines keeping mostly straight face (or ending up making grimaces) & that’s it, more then half of hollywood does exactly that & miraculusly they work all the time which is beyond me. anyway after watching shows of every genere, every decade (from 60s to our days) & knowing so many actors that lost count i can tell that jensen & misha are Actors with capital A which is a very rare thing. they use every ‘tool’ a good actor uses, eyes (which let’s not forget are the mirror of the soul) face, voice, body languige, obviously their expressiveness is always to the point with the scene they act (drama or comedy) but most importantly even if they don’t have dialogue you can tell what they feel by only watching their face (also rare), cherry on the cake they act constantly & they continue to do it even if the camera is’nt focus on them, shame we lose that. in conclusion if it was’nt for them dean & cas would be caricatures not characters with heart, body & soul. that’s why i will defend both (using facts) till the end of my days because they deserve it & that’s what actual fans do

  138. Kat on July 6th, 2013 12:11 am

    Jensen Ackles!!

    He is so talented! (If it were up to me he’d win everything and Dean would finally have a real storyline again..something which hasn’t really happened since season 5)

  139. Tina on July 6th, 2013 4:23 pm

    @cassie, LOL! MY terrible manners? What exactly did I say that was so terrible? That the way you speak for Jensen is insulting?
    Once again you’re accusing Jared of not being a real friend just because according to you he doesn’t support Jensen in having a mytharc. I will tell you again that the fact that YOU are not satisfied with Dean’s storyline doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have one. And from what it looks like neither Jared or Jensen had a problem with their storyline this season. And Jensen has proven in the past that when he doesn’t like something he makes sure he says his opinion.
    Sam might have been the one to do the trials but Dean was right there next to him helping him getting through the trials.
    As for who you consider a good actor or not, it’s all a matter of personal opinion. You don’t like Jared’s acting, that’s fine. I do, as well as many others and I think that if there is one actor ON SPN who can act without saying a word that’s Jared first and Jensen second (OK maybe it’s a tie between them, I can’t actually choose! ) I don’t like Misha’s acting at all. I think he is one of the least talented actors the show ever had but that’s just my opinion! Our opinions are nothing more than opinions, they’re not facts you know!
    A real fan makes sure to defend their favorite without trashing their non-favorite. Your problem is not that you just don’t like Jared’s acting. For some reason you hate Jared and you don’t want him anywhere near Jensen either as a co-star or a friend.
    I don’t understand what you mean by saying that Jensen proves he is a real friend by actions while Jared only stays at words…
