SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IMDb (www.imdb.com), the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content, today unveiled the Top 10 Stars and Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2019. Rather than base its annual rankings on small statistical samplings, reviews of professional critics, or box office performance, IMDb determines its definitive top 10 lists using data from IMDbPro STARmeter rankings, which are based on the actual page views of more than 200 million monthly visitors to IMDb. IMDb also announced today that this year’s No. 5 Top Star and No. 2 Breakout Star of 2019, Dacre Montgomery (Stranger Things), has received an IMDb Breakout STARmeter Award, an honor also shared by Brie Larson, IMDb’s No. 1 star of 2019 and the recipient of the 2015 IMDb Breakout STARmeter Award.
“The IMDbPro STARmeter chart has proven to be a keenly accurate predictor of breakthrough career moments, and we are pleased to see our 2015 Breakout IMDb STARmeter Award recipient, Brie Larson, rank as the No 1 top star of 2019,” said Matt Kumin, Head of IMDbPro. “This year’s No. 1 Breakout Star Erin Moriarty spent seven consecutive weeks on the IMDbPro STARmeter Top 10 chart in 2019 when The Boys premiered on Prime Video — an impressive feat that bodes well for continued career success.”
No. 5 Top Star and No. 2 Breakout Star Dacre Montgomery (Stranger Things) received a 2019 IMDb STARmeter Award in the “Breakout Star” category during a recent visit to the set of “The IMDb Show.” IMDb STARmeter Awards recognize entertainment industry luminaries who are fan favorites on the IMDbPro STARmeter chart. Fueled by his performance in Seasons 2 and 3 of Stranger Things, Dacre has been a top performer on the IMDbPro STARmeter chart in recent years, including multiple weeks in the No. 1 spot. Previous IMDb STARmeter Award recipients in the “Breakout Star” category include Jacob Elordi, Pom Klementieff, Miles Teller, Brie Larson and Olivia Cooke.
“We spent nine months working on Season 3 [of Stranger Things] so for it to finally come to fruition and for Billy’s story arc to have an evolution and a resolve was really exciting,” said Dacre Montgomery. “I feel flattered to have been given that opportunity and to have the audience respond so well to that character and that world. I’d like to thank IMDb for this award and all of the fans out there who made this happen. I’ve been an IMDb user for a long time so when my STARmeter was No. 1, it represented everything I had been working towards. This symbolizes a lot to me.”
