2009 Poll results

After more than 9000 votes in the various categories,
here are the results...

Now someone might think the results have gone awry with Colin Firth only receiving 6% of the votes for Favourite Actor but with 57 men eligible for votes, and multiple votes allowed, Firth still came out on top! (With Alan Rickman in 2nd place). Mr. Darcy handily won Favourite Leading Man with Mr. John Thornton earning a respectable second place with Capt. Wentworth and Mr. Rochester not far behind.

Favourite actress votes saw "sisters" Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson running neck and neck along with Jennifer Ehle in a virtual three-way tie for first place. In the category of Favourite Leading Lady, however, Elizabeth Bennett was the easy leader over Elinor Dashwood (not much of a surprise). I would have liked to see Matty Wickham get at least one vote...

Willoughby and Wickham tied for Favourite Villain, followed by the new bad boy who women love: Guy of Gisbourne.

Scarlett O'Hara is still the definitive Social Climber, followed by Becky Sharp and Anne Boleyn.

Austen characters seem to have the monopoly on Favourite Snobs with Lady Catherine garnering the most votes, followed by Caroline Bingley and Fanny Dashwood.

Not much of a surprise for Favourite Quirky Character: Mr. Collins was the clear winner, with votes also going to Guppy (Bleak House) and Mr. Elton (Emma).

Another obvious winner is Jane Austen in Favourite Author of Period Dramas with runners-up Elizabeth Gaskell and Charles Dickens.

Favourite Dance Scene: Netherfield Ball is clearly first in people's minds, followed by the dance from Becoming Jane.

For the Movie Poll, I was not surprised to see P&P and S&S in the top two but I was disappointed to see that two of my favourite series landed in the bottom two! If you get a chance to see them, I highly recommend Lost Prince and Berkeley Square!
