Tom Hanks Officially Declared America’s Favorite Actor

Tom Hanks has moved from the No. 5 spot to No. 1 in The Harris Poll‘s annual ranking of America’s favorite actors, making this the fifth time the Academy Award winner has topped the list.

Rounding out the top five are Johnny Depp, Denzel Washington, John Wayne, and Harrison Ford (evidently being alive is not a prerequisite for inclusion in The Harris Poll’s rankings, which explains how Wayne made it on).

Hanks took top honors thanks in part to his role in Steven Spielberg’s Best Picture nominee Bridge of Spies, but really, it’s hardly surprising to see him rank so highly no matter what year it is. Hanks has consistently remained one of Hollywood’s most beloved and likable actors for decades now, so naming him as America’s favorite actor yet again is just preaching to the choir at this point.

Here is the complete top 10 list:

  1. Tom Hanks
  2. Johnny Depp
  3. Denzel Washington
  4. John Wayne
  5. Harrison Ford
  6. Sandra Bullock
  7. Jennifer Lawrence
  8. Clint Eastwood
  9. Brad Pitt
  10. Julia Roberts
