IMDb loves lists, and the company revealed the Top 10 Stars and Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2019. The top 10 lists are compiled using data from IMDbPro STARmeter rankings, which are based on the actual pageviews of more than 200M monthly visitors to the website. This year, Dacre Montgomery received an IMDb Breakout STARmeter Award. In 2015, that award was given to Brie Larson, who happens to be IMDb’s No. 1 star of 2019.
“The IMDbPro STARmeter chart has proven to be a keenly accurate predictor of breakthrough career moments, and we are pleased to see our 2015 Breakout IMDb STARmeter Award recipient, Brie Larson, rank as the No 1 top star of 2019,” said Matt Kumin, Head of IMDbPro. “This year’s No. 1 Breakout Star Erin Moriarty spent seven consecutive weeks on the IMDbPro STARmeter Top 10 chart in 2019 when The Boys premiered on Prime Video — an impressive feat that bodes well for continued career success.”
Dacre Montgomery picked up his 2019 IMDb STARmeter Award in the “Breakout Star” category during a recent visit to the set of “The IMDb Show.” You might remember him best as the scary older brother in Season 2 and the lifeguard in Season 3 of Netflix’s Stranger Things. Previous IMDb STARmeter Award recipients in the “Breakout Star” category include Jacob Elordi, Pom Klementieff, Miles Teller, Brie Larson, and Olivia Cooke.
“We spent nine months working on Season 3 [of Stranger Things] so for it to finally come to fruition and for Billy’s story arc to have an evolution and a resolve was really exciting,” said Dacre Montgomery. “I feel flattered to have been given that opportunity and to have the audience respond so well to that character and that world. I’d like to thank IMDb for this award and all of the fans out there who made this happen. I’ve been an IMDb user for a long time so when my STARmeter was No. 1, it represented everything I had been working towards. This symbolizes a lot to me.”
