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.
