Winners Series of the Year Awards 2023

Winners Series of the Year Awards 2023

In 2012 it was possible to vote for the MySerie series of the year for the first time, now for the twelfth time it was possible to vote again from the 2nd of January until the 4th of February.
Voting was still possible until February 3, but in some categories the number one could no longer be overtaken from the start. Was there no tension at all? Yes, certainly, in some categories it remained exciting to see who would walk away with the #1 spot. Admitting the outcome of the best series, for example, will not come as a real surprise to anyone since January 2023 and that is not a problem, because the best should also win.

And some of you will disagree, unfortunately, nothing can change that. If you want your favorite series to win, vote in the poll and submit your nominations. You can also indicate in a PM which series you would like to see in the poll. So your favorite has a better chance of breaking into the top 10 and perhaps even number one.

This year, a total of 18,577 votes were cast in fifteen categories by 1,799 users.

But let's stop keeping you in suspense and announce the winners.

These are the results of the MySeries of the year 2023 elections

Best actress of 2023



It will come as no surprise that Bella Ramsey will walk away with the prize. Ramsey made Ellie a true-to-life character with a rebellious streak in a horrible world. From the start of the elections, it was clear that Bella would come out on top, although Debicki did accelerate a bit at the end, it was still not enough to dethrone Ellie Williams.

Below are the top 6 in the category Best Actress of 2023 (1233 votes):

1. Bella Ramsey as Ellie Williams (The Last of Us, HBO) – 367 votes (30%)
2. Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana (The Crown, Netflix) - 254 votes (21%)
3. Keri Russell as Ambassador Kate Wyler (The Diplomat (US), Netflix) - 227 votes (18%)
4. Rosamund Pike as Moiraine Damodred (The Wheel of Time, Prime Video) - 164 votes (13%)
5. Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano (Ahsoka, Disney+) - 119 votes (10%)
6. Ruth Wilson as Marisa Coulter (His Dark Materials, BBC One) - 102 votes (8%)

Best Actor of 2023



While it was no surprise and hardly a struggle for the actresses, it was the same for the actors. Omar Sy didn't stand a chance against the actor who was nominated not only for The Last of Us but also for The Mandalorian. Although I think most votes went to the tough and vulnerable Joel Miller.

Below are the top 6 in the category Best actor of 2023 (1319 votes):

1. Pedro Pascal as Joel Miller (The Last of Us, HBO/The Mandalorian, Disney+) – 413 votes (31%)
2. Omar Sy as Assane Diop (Lupin, Netflix) - 325 votes (25%)
3. Tom Hiddleston as Loki Laufeyson (Marvel's Loki, Disney+) - 204 votes (15%)
4. Idris Elba as Sam Nelson (Hijack, Apple TV+) - 201 votes (15%)
5. Jeremy Allen White as Carmen 'Carmy' Berzatto (The Bear, FX) - 96 votes (7%)
6. Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard (Star Trek: Picard, Paramount+) - 80 votes (6%)

Most Disappointing Series of 2023



The battle in this category was undecided for a long time. But the four percent difference could no longer be made up in the last week. The Idol was loathed on many platforms and for many reasons. Voters in the MySeries Elections also show no mercy for this HBO series.

Below are the top 5 in the Most Disappointing Series of 2023 category (1063 votes):

1. The Idol (HBO) - 194 votes (18%)
2. The Witcher (Netflix) - 153 votes (14%)
3. Sex Education ( Netflix) - 135 votes (13%)
4. Secret Invasion (Disney+) - 121 votes (11%)
5. Willow (Disney+) - 115 votes (11%)

The wildcard with the most votes in this category is:
The Continental with 3 votes!

Best Animated series of 2023



Only in the last few days did it become clear who would be the winner in this category. Who would have thought that a cute little tree would win out over a grandfather and his grandson. It is not very surprising that Pokémon won. Japanese anime itself has penetrated the art world and is still immensely popular after all these years.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Animated Series of 2023 (956 votes):

1. Pokémon (TV Tokyo) - 244 votes (26%)
2. I Am Groot (Disney+) - 209 votes (22%)
3. Rick and Morty (Adult Swim) - 103 votes (11%)
4. Star Wars: The Bad Batch (Disney+) - 98 votes (10%)
5. Blue Eye Samurai (Netflix) - 57 votes (6%)

The wildcard with the most votes in this category is:
Family Guy with 4 votes!

Best Ended Series of 2023



I think this category clearly shows how people think differently about various series. The winner here is the number three in the disappointing series. Strange you might think, but the last season of Sex Education was a disappointment for many, but the entire series was good enough for the win.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Ended Series of 2023 (1182 votes):

1. Sex Education ( Netflix) - 277 votes (23%)
2. Ted Lasso (Apple TV+) - 155 votes (13%)
3. His Dark Materials (BBC One) - 149 votes (13%)
4. Happy Valley (BBC One) - 120 votes (10%)
5. Star Trek: Picard (Paramount+) - 111 votes (9%)

The wildcard with the most votes in this category is:
Succession with 11 votes! (1%)

Best Superhero Series of 2023



For the last time, the best superhero series could be voted on. The MySeries elections will no longer have a superhero category in 2024. From 2024, superheroes can be voted in the science fiction or fantasy category. In any case, there will no longer be The Flash (2014).

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Superhero Series of 2023 (1053 votes):

1. Marvel's Loki (Disney+) - 316 votes (30%)
2. Gen V ( Prime Video) - 202 votes (19%)
3. The Flash (2014) (The CW) - 170 votes (16%)
4. Secret Invasion (Disney+) - 90 votes (9%)
5. Superman & Lois (The CW) - 81 votes (8%)

Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Series of 2023



This category will also no longer be available next year. At least not combined. This category will be split into science fiction and fantasy. This year the winner will come as a surprise to almost no one. And the winner was clear from the first week, just like the number two, who also came in as the #2 on most disappointing.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Series of 2023 (1222 votes):

1. The Last of Us (HBO) - 391 votes (32%)
2. The Witcher (Netflix) - 222 votes (18%)
3. The Mandalorian (Disney+) - 120 votes (10%)
4. Shadow and Bone (Netflix) - 99 votes (8%)
5. The Wheel of Time (Prime Video) - 87 votes (7%)

The wildcards with the most votes in this category are:
For All Mankind, Manifest, Good Omens and Willow with 2 votes!

Best Crime Series of 2023



Would the master thief win against the FBI agent? That was the question for a long time. Ultimately, the French thief lost out to the American agent. Who would come third was very exciting until the last day, but in the end, the agent had just a few more votes. But what is clear is that Netflix is ​​the biggest seller in this category.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Crime Series of 2023 (1308 votes):

1. The Night Agent (Netflix) - 351 votes (27%)
2. Lupin (Netflix) - 269 votes (21%)
3. The Lincoln Lawyer (Netflix) - 120 votes (9%)
4. Special Ops: Lioness (Paramount+) - 116 votes (9%)
5. Bosch: Legacy (IMDb TV) - 94 votes (7%)

The wildcards with the most votes in this category are:
Fargo, Criminal Minds, Love and Death with 2 votes!

Best Foreign-language series of 2023



With a difference of a whopping 400 votes, the sympathetic French master thief won in this category. The tension here was in the numbers two and three, who finished with only one vote difference. And here too, Netflix is ​​the big winner.

Below are the top 5 in the category Foreign-language series of 2023 (1219 votes):

1. Lupin (Netflix) - 553 votes (45%)
2. Ragnarok ( Netflix) - 146 votes (12%)
3. Alice in Borderland (2020) (Netflix) - 145 votes (12%)

5. Liebes Kind (Netflix) - 76 votes (6%)

The wildcard with the most votes in this category is:
DNA with 2 votes!

Best Mini/Anthology series of 2023



So you're a miniseries and then Apple TV+ decides to renew you with a second season. We are talking about the Hijack series, which came second in this category. Unfortunately, the news of renewal came too late to do anything about the election results.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Mini/Anthology Series of 2023 (1167 votes):

1. Black Mirror (Netflix) - 223 votes (19%)
2. Hijack (Apple TV+) - 196 votes (17%)

5. The Fall of the House of Usher (Netflix) - 113 votes (10%)

The wildcards with the most votes in this category are:
Fargo and The Continental with 3 votes!

Best Comedy/Dramedy Series of 2023



The number three most disappointing series has become the big winner here. As previously heard, the last season turned out to have been a disappointment, but the entire series was good enough to win here with a ten percent difference. And just like in the aforementioned category, Ted Lasso also came second here. The big winner at the Emmys, The Bear, also does not come higher than fourth place.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Comedy/Dramedy Series of 2023 (1234 votes):

1. Sex Education ( Netflix) - 313 votes (25%)

Best Flemish/Dutch series of 2023



The prequel to Undercover is doing well in this category, with a difference of almost ten percent, Ferry: De Serie has managed to leave the competition behind. Not surprising, the series was excellently received. Unfortunately, the winner of the Televizier Ring 2023 did not get further than third place.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Flemish/Dutch series of 2023 (1305 votes):

1. Ferry: De Serie (Netflix) - 367 votes (28%)

5. Knokke off (VRT Max) - 79 votes (6%)

The wildcards with the most votes in this category are:
Day & Night, Sleepers, Maud & Babs with 2 votes!

Best Dramaserie of 2023



The number one that eventually became number two. That's the best way to describe the battle in this category. There was also tension here in numbers three and four, both from Paramount+, but in the end Stallone managed to beat Harrison Ford. Unfortunately, despite the backlash as to why this series wasn't nominated in more categories, Succession - a big winner at the Emmys - finished in a disappointing fifth place.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Drama Series of 2023 (1261 votes):

1. The Crown (Netflix) - 294 votes (23%)
2. The Good Doctor (ABC) - 256 votes (20%)
3. Tulsa King (Paramount+) - 140 votes (11%)
4. 1923 (Paramount+) - 132 votes (10%)
5. Succession (HBO) - 109 votes (9%)

The wildcard with the most votes in this category is:
Outlander with 4 votes!

Best New series of 2023



Even though The Night Agent really tried, there's no way around it. Number one has also proven to be supreme here. Anyone who has chosen this series will probably still remember the third episode after a year. And also the great acting of both leading actors.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best new series of 2023 (1398 votes):

1. The Last of Us (HBO) - 439 votes (31%)
2. The Night Agent (Netflix) - 360 votes (26%)
3. The Diplomat (US) (Netflix) - 119 votes (9%)
4. Gen V (Prime Video) - 94 votes (7%)
5. Hijack (Apple TV+) - 88 votes (6%)

The wildcards with the most votes in this category are:
One Piece (2023), Knokke off with 2 votes!

Best Series of 2023



What else can be said now, The Last of Us made such an impression that even a year later the series ended up number one in several categories. Other, also very good series that started later in the year didn't stand a chance. I would like to leave open whether it is justified or not, because tastes simply differ.

Below are the top 5 in the category Best Series of 2023 (1657 votes):

1. The Last of Us (HBO) - 499 votes (30%)
2. The Night Agent (Netflix) - 262 votes (16%)
3. Lupin (Netflix) - 206 votes (12%)
4. Ferry: De Serie (Netflix) - 168 votes (10%)
5. The Lincoln Lawyer (Netflix) - 94 votes (6%)

The wildcard with the most votes in this category is:
The Bear with 6 votes!

The conclusion is that it does not matter whether a series is released at the beginning of the year or at the end. If you are good, the viewers will know that a year later. Netflix is ​​once again the big winner this year, with a top three and top five winners in some categories. Is that because Netflix makes good series? This is partly true, but it is also because Netflix is ​​the most watched and therefore some series do not appear in the top three. Not because they are not good, but simply because the viewer does not have a subscription to the streaming service/cable provider where the series is shown.

Once again this year I would like to thank our wonderful writers for the wonderful columns with the ten nominated series in the thirteen categories and the six nominated actors and actresses in the categories of the same name.

The complete results and the associated grades can be found on the page that can be found under the green button below.
