The Votes Are In: Best Up-and-Comer of 2008

There's a lot of promising young talent out there but only one was deemed the best of 2008. Drumroll, please. . .

Best Up-and-Comer of 2008
Kat Dennings (Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, House Bunny)

Kat Dennings has been around for a while with roles on shows like ER and Sex and the City, and in movies like The 40-Year-Old-Virgin and Charlie Bartlett, but this was a bigger year than most for her and she's stepping into the limelight more and more. She is a master of the droll delivery and I love seeing her onscreen because she never seems fake. She comes off as a smart, cool girl and we can always use more actresses like her.

In this poll, Lucy Kate Hale (the adorable little Rose Baker on Privileged) came in second place with Tristan Wilds (90210, The Wire) taking third.

I like her, I used to watch her on that WB show with Bob Saget called "Raising Dad." I think she has a great future ahead of her.rivrchild, she looks like a young Gwen? I don't see the resemblance at all...and I've seen pics and videos of Gwen when she was young. Hmm...a No Doubt biopic would be cool though.

The first thing I ever saw her in was 40 Year Old Virgin. I thought she was great in that and I loved her in Nick and Norah. So happy to see that others are excited about her too! (And I predict one day that she will be playing Gwen Stefani in a biopic. It's creepy how much she reminds me of young Gwen!)

aside from all the roles that are noted above, wasn't she also in a tv show that she was a teenager too? i feel like we're forgetting that she really has been around for a while, but i guess now she's just getting real recognition. it's nice that she's out in the spotlight more and i hope that we get to see more of her.
