Vote For Your Favorite 2021 Actor

Our annual Fan Favorite categories offer a way for Rotten Tomatoes readers to recognize the films, TV shows, actors, and creators they loved in 2021, which provided us with a wealth of entertainment and incredible performances even as the coronavirus pandemic continued to take its toll.

The list of potential Fan Favorite Actors of 2021 includes a variety of worthy gentlemen, from those who impressed the critics (Will Smith, Nicolas Cage) to those who just picked all the best stuff to be in (Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Timothée Chalamet), from the one who won our sympathy playing children’s games (Lee Jung-jae) to the one who became BFFs with Ridley Scott (Adam Driver) to the one who busted some ghosts before he became the Sexiest Man Alive (Paul Rudd), and more. Below, you’ll find all of them listed in alphabetical order, so find your favorite, cast your vote, and come back tomorrow, because you’re allowed one vote per day, which means you can keep coming back to help make sure your favorite wins. Make sure you do it by January 26th, though, because that’s when we’ll close the polls, and winners will be announced on January 31st.
