Thanks to all who participated in our Favorite 5 voting this year. To be clear: You didn’t vote for your favorite shows. You voted for your favorite characters, and these are the shows, movies and theatrical performances they populate.

It’s not a perfect process, and productions with one main character (as opposed to an ensemble type cast) tend to be artificially dinged because one person has to carry the load for the whole shebang.

Our results feel accurate for the Pajiba audience, though. Here’s how the overall votes looked when divided by medium.

And here’s the chart from last year’s competition:

As was the case last year, Television still reigns supreme. People tend to like the longer format and really feel like they establish a bond with the character. That said, as you’ll see below, people still cherish their movie characters. Books took a HUGE hit this year. Are you guys reading less? More likely, last year was for “all time” favorite characters and this year we decided to go annually to keep it relevant. Video Games and Comic Books still bring up the rear, but probably have the most die-hard followers. The biggest change? Powering out of the “other” category last year and establishing its very own category: theatrical performance. You can probably guess why, and the results were impressive.

Tomorrow, you get to find out who your actual favorite characters are. For today, we have the overall breakdown of the worlds they inhabit.

Here’s how the voting shook out:

And that’s how it all played out, though I will say that Star Wars and Game of Thrones blew the competition out of the water. Especially Star Wars.

And you may be able to guess why, but tomorrow, you’ll know why.
