America has spoken and revealed who its ultimate favorite movie star is.

More than 2,200 adults in the US were quizzed about their choice of the best Hollywood actors and actresses, basically coming to an overwhelming decision and, wait for it... it's Tom Hanks!

Argue what you will but it's now been set in stone — by topping the Harris Poll this year, Tom Hanks is officially the creme de la creme of the Hollywood gang once again. He also came out top in the poll back in 2002, 2004, 2005 and more recently, in 2013.

And I bet this gesture isn't the only music to his ears right now as his latest movie, Bridge of Spies, is also up for six Oscars at the long-anticipated Academy Awards next month:

Who else made the cut?

Hot on his heels, Johnny Depp swooped into second position, having most recently starred as real-life mobster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass.

In third place, reigning champion and last year's winner Denzel Washington still managed to win over the American audiences, despite the fact that he didn't really grace us with his presence on the big screen in 2015. The final spots were filled by Western icon John Wayne and Harrison Ford, followed by Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, Clint Eastwood and Brad Pitt (shared with Julia Roberts.)

Do you agree with the results?
