2007 AFTI Media Boy Poll


2007 brought a good turnout and some very interesting results for this year's Media Boy Poll. There was a near-record number of nominees receiving at least one vote, and one of the tightest finishes for the top spots we've ever had. For the first time ever, the top 3 spots all went to non-U.S. performers. Voters were eager to choose new faces, as 5 of our top 10 finishers are newcomers to the poll this year. The ballot count is about the same as in the past few years, with 100 ballots included in this year's total. And now...the top 10!


Slade Pearce

Slade Pearce

He's been acting since he was 7, and now at age 12 he's getting a look at the prime-time spotlight, with a major role in the network series "October Road." Texas-born Slade is one of 5 newcomers to make the top 10 in the Media Boy Poll.



Miles Heizer

13 year old Miles has performed well as a guest star in numerous TV dramas since 2005. This year he broke into the poll with a recurring role on the long-running successful series "ER."


Josh Hutcherson

Josh Hutcherson

Josh is the highest- ranked 2006 finisher to make this year's top 10. Critics and ticket-buyers loved "Bridge to Terabithia", then he headlined the ads for "Firehouse Dog." Now 15, he still lives in his hometown of Union, Kentucky.



Jimmy Bennett

The youngest in our top 10, 11 year old Jimmy has one of the longest résumés. On the big screen he starred in the major release "Evan Almighty" and guested on TV's "Gilmore Girls." Jimmy has 5 projects on the way for 2008.


Freddie Highmore

Freddie Highmore

After a relatively quiet 2006, Freddie returned to the movies in a big way, starring in the major release "August Rush" and with voice work for another big movie, "The Golden Compass." This is 15 year old Freddie's 4th consecutive top 10 finish!



Nat Wolff

Is it fiction or real life? It's getting hard to tell for 13 year old Nat, who leads Nickelodeon TV's "Naked Brothers Band" with younger brother Alex. His singing and writing abilities brought us a well made CD this fall.


Alexander Gould

Alexander Gould

He's one of the most grounded characters in an increasingly bizarre family, in Showtime's critically acclaimed "Weeds." 13 year old Alexander has been acting since he was 4! He's the highest ranked repeater from last year's top 10.



Max Baldry

Here's proof that your vote counts: one ballot made the difference in deciding this year's top 3. Max was a hit on the big screen (Mr. Bean's Holiday) and TV (HBO's "Rome"). Max, 11, was born in London and has lived in Moscow and Warsaw.


Alessandro Morace

Alessandro Morace

The poll gets more international every year. Alessandro's strong performance in "Along the Ridge" has barely been released (retitled "Libero") in the US, but strong support from Europe put him close to the top.



Sean Keenan

Few TV series have told the story of growing up as well as "Lockie Leonard." The show and its star, 13 year old Sean, dominated a lot of voters' conversations all year. Congratulations to our first poll winner from Australia!

Sean Keenan First Place Award


2007 AFTI Media Boy Poll Top 10


Here's the vote count.  First you'll see this year's rank, then last year's rank, the point total, and the star.  "New" means the performer was not on last year's or 2005's ballot (although he may have been listed in previous years), and "Re-entry" either means the performer was on the ballot but received no votes last year, or was not on last year's ballot but was on 2005's ballot.
