Your votes have been counted!  Teen Beat’s 1st Annual Teen Star Awards

In the February 1984 edition of Teen Beat, we printed our 1st Annual Teen Star Awards ballot asking our readers to vote for their favorite movie stars, TV stars, soap stars, singers, rock groups, sex symbols, comedy stars, child stars, and animal or fantasy stars.

And your response to this exciting mail-in poll was totally awesome! We received so many mailbags full of ballots we thought we’d never get them all sorted and counted! But count them all we did, and the results are printed here.

Congratulations to all the winners of Teen Beat’s 1st Annual Teen Star Awards!

Second Place: Tom Cruise with 16.6% of the vote

Third Place: Tom Howell with 16.1% of the vote

As you can see, the vote for Fave Male Movie Star was very close. It was almost a three-way tie between Dillon, Cruise and Howell, but Matt finally came out on top! Other stars with strong showings were John Travolta, Rob Lowe and Sly Stallone.

First Place: Kristy McNichol with 19.9% of the vote
