IMDb released the company’s Best of 2015 special section, which features a wide-array of additional year-end top 10 lists, with retrospective photo galleries, an in memoriam and other original videos and additional year-end coverage.
This year’s top stars include Tom Hardy at number one, his hit-film “Mad Max” definitely helped propell him to the top of the charts this year. Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones and Margot Robbie of the upcoming Suicide Squad took second and third place respectively.
Other notable mentions on the top-ten this year are “50 Shades of Grey” actress Dakota Johnson and “Divergent” star Shailene Woodley.
The IMDb Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2015 were also mentioned this year, they include “Cinderella” star Lily James, Bryce Dallas Howard and Cara Delevingne. Also on the list are Alicia Vikander, Kate Mara, Hayley Atwell and Scott Eastwood.
“In Mad Max: Fury Road Tom Hardy is surrounded by strong female characters ‒ which is fitting,” said Keith Simanton, IMDb’s Senior Film Editor. “While Tom Hardy is IMDb’s #1 star of 2015, he is also the only male actor to crack IMDb’s otherwise all-female Top 10 Stars of 2015 and 2014 lists. Similarly, Scott Eastwood is the only male actor to chart on the IMDb Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2015 list, coming in at #10.”
“Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World) and Lily James (Cinderella, Downton Abbey) also had a very strong year in 2015, as evidenced by the fact that they charted for the very first time on both the IMDb Top 10 Stars List and the IMDb Top 10 Breakout Stars list simultaneously, which means that not only did they crack IMDb’s Top 100 list for the first time in their careers in 2015, but they also were in rarified air in that they were among the top 10 most viewed stars on IMDb in 2015, as determined by page views,” said Simanton.
“Interestingly, superstar and fan favorite Jennifer Lawrence, who was ranked #2 on the IMDb Top 10 Stars of 2014 list, #1 in 2013, #2 in 2012 and #7 in 2011 did not rank on the IMDb Top 10 Stars list this year, coming in at #18 in 2015. Given that Jennifer is currently starring in the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise and is re-teaming with Bradley Cooper and David O. Russell in Joy this holiday season, I expect she’ll have a very strong showing when we compile our 2016 year-end lists,” said Simanton.
