Fan Favorite Actors 2020

While the ongoing pandemic’s effect on productions across film and television meant there were fewer opportunities for people to appear in multiple projects, it didn’t mean there weren’t still some fantastic performers to highlight in 2020. Bod Odenkirk still shone on Better Call Saul, Steven Yeun made history with his Best Actor nomination for Minari, and Ben Affleck was shockingly good in The Way Back, even if those were the only major titles they starred in.

In the end, it was a close race between Tom Holland, who starred in Pixar’s Onward and the novel adaptation The Devil All the Time, and Pedro Pascal, who continued his incredible run on The Mandalorian and went full Ernie McCracken in Wonder Woman 1984, with the latter pulling out the win. Votes were spread fairly evenly across several of the candidates, but Pascal and Holland together earned a whopping 43% of them and blew away the competition.

The order below reflects the number of total votes cast for each actor by users in a poll that ran on RT from March 10 to April 13.

Pedro Pascal
Pascal sure had a lot of fun in 2020, whether he was adventuring in space in The Mandalorian, hamming it up as a comic book villain in Wonder Woman 1984, or slicing and dicing as a superhero in We Can Be Heroes.


Tom Holland
Holland peppered his post-Endgame resume with a heartfelt Pixar movie (Onward) and a dark, psychological thriller based on a novel (The Devil All the Time), proving he’s more than just your friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.

Chadwick Boseman
Though we still mourn the loss of Chadwick Boseman, we remain grateful that he blessed us with two riveting final performances in Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods and in the August Wilson play Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

Regé-Jean Page
Regé-Jean Page made everyone swoon as Bridgerton’s Duke of Hastings, smoldering on screen and catapulting into the pop culture stratosphere in the process.

Mads Mikkelsen
Mads Mikkelsen has been a cinematic mainstay for years, popping up in both the Star Wars and Marvel universes, but his turn in Thomas Vinterberg’s Another Round is one of the finest moments of his career.
