BREAK OUT STAR OF THE YEAR:
Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Lego Movie)
Aside from his regular role on Parks and Recreation, Pratt always seemed to pop up in smaller roles such as Zero Dark Thirty and Her. In being the lead voice for The Lego Movie, and starring in the biggest film of the year, Pratt is now a full blown star. He’ll continue that momentum almost immediately in next summer’s Jurassic World. With talk of him possibly joining the remake of The Magnificent Seven though, there is a danger of over exposure coming. As of right now though, Pratt cannot be stopped.

- Christopher Miller/Phil Lord (The Lego Movie, 22 Jump Street)
