Poll Results: Who Will Be The Breakout Stars of 2012?

So by now, you've probably perused our 2012 Hot List which lists what's most likely to fire up our Fandango users over the next 12 months.

We surveyed Fandango users to see which relative newcomers are poised to have a big year. The results find a pair of Hunger Games stars dueling for the top spot in the men's category while a half human, half-vampire child and a possible Catwoman sidekick top the women's list.
 
While Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth top the men's list, you might wonder why Jennifer Lawrence, who plays lead Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games isn't on here. Lawrence already broke out before she picked up Katniss' bow and arrow for Hunger Games (though, of course being a part of a potential mega-franchise doesn't hurt) with roles in X-Men: First Class and her Oscar nomination for Winter's Bone.
 
Check out the full results below.
