Performer Of The Month – Nominations For January 2023

Spoilers
 
A new year means a new round of Performer of the Month. The rules for this year are exactly the same as in 2022 with the only change being the time each poll will start and end for the majority of the year. More on that is noted below after the rules. This month many shows roared back from hiatus with some very strong episodes that showcased many brilliant performances. After you read through the rules please take a moment to place your nominations for the performers you think delivered the best performance in January. Who will get enough nominations to make it to the voting round?
If you are new to this feature, please read the 2023 rules shown below.

2022 Staff Choice Performer of the Year: Zendaya (Rue Bennett) – Euphoria
2022 Readers’ Choice Performer of the Year (tie): Alba Baptista (Ava Silva) – Warrior Nun and Kristina Tonteri-Young (Beatrice) – Warrior Nun

December 2022 Winner:
Staff and Readers’ Choice: Kristina Tonteri-Young (Beatrice) – Warrior Nun
Rules:

-A person can only nominate 5 performers per month. Those 5 performers must all be different. Anyone trying to submit the same performer for all 5 of their allowed nominations will have all of their nominations disqualified. The submission form is still the same, but please be sure to fill it out correctly. If any spots are not filled in your submission will not count. 

Only 1 episode can be nominated per performer. That episode will help determine which performers make it to the poll. Simply just put the episode number in the form. The contest will be working off the understanding that the episode number is for the current season. 
A performer can only win 1 time per year. 
A show can only be represented by 2 winners per year. For example, if a performer from a show wins in January then another performer from that same show wins in February then no other performer on the show will be eligible again for the rest of the year. 
-In the event the same performer wins both the staff and reader voting that particular month will only have 1 winner. 
-During voting the results will remain hidden. The Top 3 results will be revealed after voting concludes. 
Performers on streaming shows that release the full season all at one time are eligible for 2 months, so the month the season releases and the following month. That gives people more opportunities to watch and nominate performers from those shows. 
Performers on streaming shows can’t be nominated for a full season. Nominations must include just a single episode number. 
-Voice performers from live-action shows are eligible as long as they had a significant part in the episode they appeared in. 
-Voice performers from animated shows are eligible. 
-Guest stars are eligible. 
Performers from movies that aired originally and exclusively on a streaming service are eligible for 2 months. Even if a movie only has a limited run in theaters it is NOT eligible.

A note from Aimee: I launched this feature back in 2016 and have been at the helm for every month except for one round in 2017. I have some major life events happening this year, so as a result, I have made the decision to temporarily step back from this feature for a number of months. But don’t worry, a great team has stepped up to take over while I’m away and they will keep POTM running as if nothing has changed. But to accommodate for different schedules and time zones, 3 pm ET will be the key start and end time for each round of the feature for now. Currently, I have every intention to return to managing this feature much later this year and at that time if there have to be any changes to the time then I will certainly let everyone know. 
Please note that a performer can now only win once per year and a show can only be represented by two winners per year. No exceptions will be made for any performer or show, so please use thoughtful consideration when making your nominations. You will have to fill out the submission form for each nominee you submit. You can submit the document up to 5 times, but each entry must be for a different performer or all of your other nominations will be disqualified. The Top 5 most nominated actresses and Top 5 actors will be placed in the poll next week to determine the Readers’ Choice Performer of the Month.

After you place your nominations take a moment to use the comments section to discuss your nominees with others. Episode number for the nominees is critically important, so discuss with others why you think a performer deserves to be recognized for a certain performance.

Nominations will run until February 3rd at 3 pm ET. The poll will post on February 4th at 3 pm ET.
Enter the episode number as 101 or 1.01. Either will work on the form and both will be accepted.

Please take note that any performer that won earlier in the year is no longer eligible for the rest of 2022, so please take note of the above list of winners before placing your nominations.
