The Votes Are in: TV's Breakout Star and Best New Character of 2007

The Votes Are in: TV's Breakout Star and Best New Character of 2007

This month I've been polling you guys on everything from who you think the best breakout TV star is to which on-screen movie romance you think was the best of 2007. Now let's see which actors, movies, albums, and TV shows earned the top honors. Drumroll please . . .

Biggest TV Breakout Star of 2007:
Lee Pace

This was a tough category, but Lee Pace of Pushing Daisies edged out Blake Lively of Gossip Girl by just a hair. Zachary Levi of Chuck and Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl were in a virtual tie for third.

Personally, I had to go with Lee Pace as well — though I could have come up with a reason to vote for everyone on this list. Blake and Leighton seem destined to be stars, Tyler Labine cracks me up on every Reaper episode, and Zachary Levi is, as Adrianne put it, "adorkably cute."

The Best New TV Character of 2007:
Ned of Pushing Daisies

There's a ton of Ned/Lee/Daisies love, huh? Lee Pace's character, Ned, grabbed this award from Zachary Levi's Chuck, with Kristen Bell's Heroes character, Elle, in third. But this category also got some write-in support for Gossip Girl's Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf and Samantha Newly of Samantha Who?

Once again, my vote went to Ned — but it was a close call between him, Erica Hahn from Grey's Anatomy, and the Devil from Reaper, whose creepy smile has brightened my Tuesday nights.
