Surprised that turnout is down so much. We usually lose 1 or 2, but it's down this year.
Like the turnout in the other annual subforum 'events', the number of participants has been in a steady decline every year. In this particular case though, it's not tough to see why posters aren't exactly rushing to make a list and support this endeavor. Even stretching out the deadline further didn't help any more this time around than it did in the previous one.
But looking at a ballpark of the votes, it's a good year for comic characters, particularly Felicity Smoak. She's one of only two characters to get on more than five ballots.
Also looks like characters from Joss Whedon shows, which used to dominate this list, have been in remarkably heavy decline. Unless we count the Marvel movies and shows he's directed/produced, in which case Black Widow, Daisy Johnson and Scarlet Witch theoretically bump his stats back up a bit.
Aside from those notable things, looks like there's gonna be a buttload of ties.
