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!
And the winners are…
Matt Dillon – Fave Male Movie Star
First Place: Matt Dillon with 16.8% of the vote
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.
Kristy McNichol – Fave Female Movie Star
First Place: Kristy McNichol with 19.9% of the vote
Second Place: Diane Lane with 16.7% of the vote
Third Place: Brooke Shields with 10.0% of the vote
Kristy was the clear frontrunner for the title of Fave Female Movie Star, although Diane had many supporters. After Brooke, Goldie Hawn, Jennifer Beals and Carrie Fisher came on strong.
