IMDb Announces the Top 10 Stars and Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2016 as Determined by Page Views

Published

on

the #1 movie website in the world, today unveiled the Top 10 Stars and Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2016. Rather than base its annual rankings on small statistical samplings, reviews of professional critics or box office performance, IMDb determines its definitive top 10 lists by the actual page views of the more than 250 million monthly unique visitors to IMDb.

IMDb’s just-launched Best of 2016 section features a variety of additional year-end Top 10 lists, more of which will be unveiled over the coming weeks, as well as retrospective photo galleries, trailers, quizzes, original videos (including an In Memoriam video) and other year-end coverage. To visit IMDb’s Best of 2016 section, go to: http://www.imdb.com/best-of.

And the 2016 winners are:

IMDb’s Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2016*

Millie Bobby Brown
Haley Bennett
Tom Holland
Natalia Dyer
Brie Larson
Evan Rachel Wood
Adam Driver
Sam Claflin
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Sofia Boutella
*Among the select group of stars who charted on IMDb’s annual Top 100 list for the first time in their careers in 2016, these 10 stars consistently ranked highest on the IMDb weekly STARmeter chart throughout the year. IMDb STARmeter rankings are based on the actual page views of IMDb’s more than 250 million unique monthly visitors.

“Many of the women who charted on IMDb’s Top 10 Stars of 2016 list portrayed strong female protagonists in some of the biggest live-action titles of the year,” said Keith Simanton, IMDb’s Senior Film Editor. “From Suicide Squad and Deadpool to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, remarkable female characters were at the center of the action in 2016 – whether sprung from the pages of comic books or a galaxy far, far away.”

“We recognized the high level of interest in Margot Robbie early on in her career. In 2014 she was our #1 Breakout Star of the year. She ranked #3 on IMDb’s 2015 and 2014 Top Stars lists. This year she capitalized on that momentum with a standout performance as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. It also helped that she appeared in two other films in 2016: She played Jane Clayton in The Legend of Tarzan and Tanya Vanderpoel in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.”

“Repeating at #2 on IMDb’s Top 10 Stars list in 2016 (the same position she held in 2015) is Game of Thrones fan favorite Emilia Clarke, who achieved big-screen success this year with the romantic drama Me Before You. The sleeper hit also benefited her co-star, Sam Claflin, who having appeared in three very popular Hunger Games sequels as Finnick Odair, finally charted on the IMDb Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2016 list (at #8) on the strength of Me Before You.”

“Tom Hardy, IMDb’s #1 most viewed star in 2015, returns to the 2016 Top 10 Stars list (at #4) in part on the strength of his memorable turn in The Revenant. He’s joined this year by his co-star on that film and perennial Top 10 Stars charter Leonardo DiCaprio (who ranked #10 this year). They’re the only two male actors on our Top Stars list this year.”

“Stranger Things launched several new stars this year, two of whom (Millie Bobby Brown and Natalia Dyer) rank on IMDb’s Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2016 list. Millie Bobby Brown accomplished an unusual feat in that she was also IMDb’s #3 most viewed star of 2016 – quite a performance for a first-time chart topper. Haley Bennett (The Girl on the Train, The Magnificent Seven) also charted for the very first time in 2016 on both the IMDb Top 10 Breakout Stars list (at #2) and the IMDb Top 10 Stars list (at #9).”

“Our #5 Breakout Star of 2016, Brie Larson, wasn’t in a 2016 sci-fi or comic book epic (though she soon will be), but we saw her ascent coming,” said IMDb’s Senior Film Editor, Keith Simanton. “Before she won Best Actress for Room or signed up for Kong: Skull Island or Captain Marvel, she received IMDb’s Breakout STARmeter Award at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.”
