Zac Efron - Breakthrough Performer of the Year
Justification: Efron was the key player in the success of "HSM3: Senior Year" last fall and is expected to open his first solo headlining effort, "17 Again," later this fall. Plus, you'd have thought he'd reached the stature of Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp considering all the attention paid to his dropping out of the "Footloose" reboot last month.
Our Take: Deserving winner (sort of). Technically, his breakthrough was in 2007 when he was the secret weapon in the $100 million plus gross of the musical "Hairspray," but if "17" is a big hit, you can't argue he's graduated from tween idol to true movie star.
