Tom Hiddleston Best Series Actor 2021

It's the year of the villain for the Critical Blast Best of 2021 Awards. After tabulating the votes that awarded Willem Dafoe our award for Best Film Actor, we turned toward the category of Best Series Actor -- those men and women who bring our episodic fantasies and adventures to life.

Not only did superhero actors dominate the category, but the Disney + coterie of streaming shows nearly swamped the nominations. While Luke Wilson took 8.7% of the vote for his work on Stargirl (tying with Ted Lasso's Jason Sudeikis), from that point forward every vote was for an actor on a Disney + MCU series.

Hailee Stanfeld claimed 10.14% of the vote for her work on Hawkeye, and Elizabeth Olson took a sizeable portion of the ballots to earn the second top spot for WandaVision.

But it was Tom Hiddleston who came out far and away the clear winner for his work on Loki, which gave viewers a bizarre exploration of the Marvel Multiverse. Taking a whopping 36.23% of all votes cast, Hiddleston's appeal as the Norse God fo Mischief is fully validated by his fans, and we can't wait to see more of his work in the future.
