Congratulations to Tom Hiddleston, who has won his second straight title as Anglo Fan Favorites Man of the Year. He defeated 2011 champion Alan Rickman 56 to 44 percent. The two actors traded leads for much of last weekend, but Hiddleston eventually extended a comfortable margin over Rickman, which he maintained through to the finish line.

Hiddleston, best known for his role as villainous Loki in the Thor films and The Avengers, has inspired a formidable following in a relatively short period of time. (The first Thor film was released in 2011.) His dominance in this year’s tournament raises the question — can anyone beat this guy?

Benedict Cumberbatch, runner-up to Hiddleston last year and the presumptive favorite this year, defeated Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith for third place 64 to 36 percent.
