With opinions strong, and votes pouring in, it's time to continue navigating our way through inaugural TV Fanatic Awards.
Readers have already expressed their views on the best network drama and the best cable drama of the 2010-2011 season. Now, sticking to the same genre, let's turn our attention to the men who make these dramas so riveting.

All are talented. But only one can move on. Which round one participant was the best dramatic actor of 2010-2011?
