A new year means a new round of Performers of the Month. All performers are once again eligible. The rules remain the same from 2018, so be sure to read back through the rules from last year as they are linked below.

The 2018 round turned out to be a year of surprises. It will be exciting to see who will win the title each month. Remember that the winners from this year will be eligible for the 2019 Performer of the Year contest in January 2020. The 2018 Performer of the Year winners are noted below and their winner articles will be out sometime later this month.

Before you take off to nominating please read the new rules very carefully.

2018 Staff's Choice Performer of the Year: Sandra Oh
2018 Reader's Choice Performer of the Year: Alycia Debnam-Carey

December Winners:
Readers' Choice: Goran Visjnic (Garcia Flynn) - Timeless
Staff Choice: D'Arcy Carden (Janet) - The Good Place

Please note that a performer can now only win once per year and a show can only be represented by two winners per year. No exceptions will be made for any performer or show, so please use thoughtful consideration when making your nominations. You will have to fill out the submission form for each nominee you submit. You can submit the document up to 5 times, but each entry must be for a different performer or all of your other nominations will be disqualified. The Top 5 most nominated actresses and Top 5 actors will be placed in the poll next week to determine the Readers' Choice Performer of the Month.

After you place your nominations take a moment to use the comments section to discuss your nominees with others. Episode number for the nominees is critically important, so discuss with others why you think a performer deserves to be recognized for a specific performance within a single episode.

Nominations will run until February 7th at 6 pm ET. The poll will post on February 8th at 6 pm ET.

Last month it became obvious that the best format for entering the episode number is season number then episode number. So you can either enter the episode number as 101 or 1.01. Either will work on the form and both will be accepted.
