Preliminaries Group 1
These polls are to narrow down the field to one character per show. If you don't see a show listed, either no characters were nominated or only one character was nominated. A spreadsheet of all nominated characters is available in the discussion post.


Vote for your favorite character in each poll. If you have questions about the eligibility of certain characters, please take them to the discussion post.
Heroes is split in two; only vote in one section. Your vote will be canceled if you vote in both.
See this thread about the Battlestar Galactica Number 8 option.

A character winning a poll here does not automatically advance - you must vote for their show and get it into the top 16 when the category polls go up.

Polls close tomorrow at 12 pm EST.

Nominations Closed / Discussion Post
Nominations are now closed. I've uploaded an excel spreadsheet of all the characters nominated here. [UPDATED]

First of all, if you see any glaring typos or anything else strange let me know.

Second, this is where you can debate character eligibility. If you see someone in the spreadsheet that you don't think belongs, say it here. Then let the person that nominated that character defend their nomination. Keep the debates polite, and I will make final decisions tomorrow when the first round goes up.

Preliminary polls for shows with multiple characters nominated will start going up within the hour. I also hope to have the category polls to narrow the fields down to sixteen up by 3 pm EST.

Nominations post! CLOSED
In the comments, nominate as many COC as you like, but be sure to include the show they're from.

After nominations, there will be polls to choose the top sixteen shows in each category, and runoff polls in cases where more than one character was nominated from a show. The categories will be Comedy, Drama, Sci Fi/Fantasy, and Animated shows.

Nominations will end on Sunday at 12 pm EST. All polls will be closed at 12 pm EST on their ending dates, with the next round going up 1-2 hours later.

Schedule (ending dates):
3-14 Nominations
3-15 Bracket List Determined
3-16 First Bracket
3-17 Second Bracket
3-18 Third Bracket
3-19 Fourth Bracket
3-20 Semifinals
3-21 Finals

1. BE POLITE. Threads will be frozen if needed.
2. Anonymous nominations will be allowed, but you will need to have a journal to vote later.
3. For non Sci Fi/Fantasy series, a Character of Color is any character with acknowledged non-European ancestry, regardless of the race of the actor. For Sci Fi/Fantasy series, if the actor is a POC, and the alien/fictional race seems to be coded as non-white, the character is eligible. Use your best judgment.
4. Characters must be from either a movie or TV show. As much fun as it would be to include characters from any format, it starts getting a little unwieldy.
