IMDb ( www.imdb.com), the #1 movie website in the world, today unveiled the top 10 stars of 2012, the top 10 emerging stars of 2012, and other year-end results. Rather than base its annual rankings on the reviews of critics or box office performance, these definitive top 10 lists are determined by the actual page views of the more than 160 million monthly unique users of IMDb. For the first time, celebrated actors, writers, directors, producers and other industry influencers also shared their personal top 10 lists in IMDb’s year-in-review special section. To view all of IMDb’s year-end lists and make your own, go to: www.imdb.com/bestof2012.

*Stars who made their debut this year on IMDb’s top 100 STARmeter chart in 2012.

“This year, the men of The Dark Knight Rises, IMDb’s #1 movie of 2012 as determined by user ratings, claimed 3 of the top 5 spots (Tom Hardy at #1, Joseph Gordon-Levitt at #4 and Christian Bale at #5). The Batman trio knocked Johnny Depp, who has earned our #1 spot for most of the last decade, to his lowest ranking ever (#7), and pushed the Black Swan actresses, who dominated at #1 (Natalie Portman) and #2 (Mila Kunis) last year, out of our top 10,” said Keith Simanton, IMDb’s managing editor.

“Also on the rise, however, were The Hunger Games stars, lead by Jennifer Lawrence,” said Keith Simanton. “Last year she was IMDb’s #1 emerging star of the year. This year she earned the #2 overall position on our chart, making her the most viewed actress of 2012. Her co-star Josh Hutcherson landed at #9, all the way up from #79 in 2011, while Liam Hemsworth became 2012’s top emerging star.”

“IMDb’s 2011 emerging stars chart also proved to be predictive of 2012 success in the case of Tom Hardy,” said Keith Simanton. “This year’s most viewed star, Tom Hardy, ranked #2 on IMDb’s emerging stars of 2011 chart. His unrivaled performance this year reflects intense fan desire to see and learn more about the man behind Bane’s mask.”
