Year in and year out, the Choice Sci-Fi / Fantasy Actor is one of the most competitive categories at the Teen Choice Awards, and for good reason given that this is a field of super-popular people from super-popular shows. We also like it just because it’s fairly unpredictable and there is no guarantee who is going to win year in and year out.
This time around, we’ve got actors from Teen Wolf, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, The 100, and more competing for the prize. While we won’t know the winner until August, we can do our best to project it right now!

The nominees: Choice Sci-Fi / Fantasy TV Actor
Bob Morley, The 100 (The CW)
Dylan O’Brien, Teen Wolf (MTV)
Ian Somerhalder, The Vampire Diaries (The CW)
Jensen Ackles, Supernatural (The CW)
Joseph Morgan, The Originals (The CW)
Matthew Daddario, Shadowhunters (Freeform)
Sizing up the field
This is a field without a clear winner, and it’s also one where we could see almost anyone winning it in the end. Maybe Morgan has the lowest overall odds, but overall this is one of those categories that will be just about a fandom coming up with the right voting strategy.
Who will win
Like we said, this is close since there are avenues where we could foresee so many of them coming out on top. If we are thinking in terms of the hungriest fan base, it’s probably Shadowhunters and that gives Daddario an edge. It also helps him that his show is on the air this summer, and that the majority of its fans are teens who will have the desire to vote. Somerhalder may lose a little steam with The Vampire Diaries off the air, and while O’Brien is super-popular, he was only in a small handful of Teen Wolf season 6A.
Who should win
Ackles is always a crowd-pleaser, so it’s easy to vote for him just because we love Dean Winchester so much. As a sleeper pick, though, why not Bob Morley? While The 100 remains incredibly popular, it hasn’t gotten the same sort of awards-show love that many other CW shows have over the years. It would be pretty fun in order to see him come out on top this time.
