Ackles plays Dean Winchester on the long-running series and is a fan favorite. Although Supernatural has taken home the prize for Favorite Sci-Fi TV Show in previous years, both he and Jared Padalecki, who plays younger brother Sam, had yet to win.
Last year’s Favorite Sci-Fi Actor was Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles’ co-star on Supernatural.
After his win, Ackles posted an amusing acceptance video on his Facebook page.
Congratulations Jensen Ackles!
