The TV Guide Fan Favorites magazine cover has officially hit stands, but even though Supernatural's Jared Padalecki was featured on the cover and in the behind-the-scenes video because the show won Favorite Sci-Fi Series, he did not get an individual award of his own. Both Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins walked away with lucite awards for their acting skills, winning Favorite Actor and Favorite Nonhuman, respectively, and following those wins with another for Ackles in E! Online's Alpha Male Madness poll, well, needless to say feelings may have been a little hurt.
But thanks to the power of fandom, Padalecki is up for a very special award of his own. There is no competition other than what to call the award and engrave on it, and for that, you can have your voice heard here. The award was created to celebrate Padalecki's own talents, which passed all kinds of new tests this season with the introduction of NoSoulSam, and it will be presented to him during Creation Entertainment's "Salute to Supernatural" convention in Nashville during the first weekend in June. Made Possible by Pop Culture will not be on-hand at that convention, so we expect you all to Tweet us lots of photos of the festivities!
It's certainly an interesting question: if you could give your favorite actor any award, and by proxy any new title as the "Best" or "Most" or "Favorite" whatever, what would it be?
It's a totally sweet gesture, but I can't help to point out what everyone is failing to mention here-- or rather who everyone is failing to mention here: Jim Beaver! He is the father figure on the show; he is the voice of reason; and he is the smartest character! He is so often the source of comic relief, but in his short time on-screen he always manages to break your heart a little, too. In the best possible way. He deserves some more recognition, too!
