TVLine's Performers of the Week

by steved739 | created - 15 Aug 2021 | updated - 1 day ago | Public

Adding both the actors that received the recognition and the honorable mentions.

Quick note - This list is sorted by an actor's most recent appearance, so if you see a date missing a winner or honorable mention, that would probably be because they received another mention later on.

Random facts:

  • Grant Gustin has more appearances on Performer of the Week than any other actor, with 8 combined Performer of the Week and Honorable Mentions titles. Sarah Paulson and Claire Danes are tied for second place, with 7 combined Performer of Week and Honorable Mention titles each.
  • 3 people are tied for having the most Performer of the Week titles (with 4): Freddie Highmore, Uzo Aduba, & Bill Hader.
  • Stephen Amell has the most Honorable Mentions, with 6.
  • 7 people on this list are deceased: Robert Morse, Louie Anderson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Cicely Tyson, Diana Rigg, Miguel Ferrer, & Luke Perry.
  • Quickest wait between appearances belongs to Kevin Chapman, who received an Honorable Mention for his work on Person of Interest a week after winning Performer of the Week for his work on Person of Interest.
  • Longest wait between appearances goes to Neil Patrick Harris, who received an Honorable Mention for his work on Uncoupled 9 years and 1 month after being named Performer of the Week for his work hosting the Tony Awards. Joel Kinnaman has the second longest wait, having been named Performer of the Week for his work on For All Mankind 9 years after being named Performer of the Week for his work on The Killing.
  • Youngest person to receive Performer of the Week is...whoever played the baby in Breaking Bad. I don't have her mentioned on this list because I don't know who played her.
  • Apart from said baby, the only other "actor" not placed on the list is The Machine from Person of Interest.
  • The current record for Most Actors to Receive Performer of the week is 12, when every cast member of The Boys (sans Dominique McElligott and Nathan Mitchell) won the title on 6/25/22 for their work on the episode "Herogasm".
  • I could be wrong on this, but there are only 2 actors to receive a Performer of the Week mention for voice-acting a character; Jane Krakowski for her work on BoJack Horseman and Alan Tudyk for his work on Harley Quinn. This is my one complaint with the series; I really wish they would highlight the work that voice actors do more frequently. They're capable of delivering equally stellar performances while under different guidelines.
