2014 was an incredible year for TV, films and music, and more than one guy caught our eye. Check out which boys we thought had the best breakout year!

Chris Pratt

Based on his Guardians of the Galaxy performance we'd say Chris is out of this world - we can't wait to see what this guy does as a new leading man in Hollywood.

Cameron Monaghan

Cameron has a long history doing TV, but it was his role as Asher in the sci-fi teen flick The Giver that really put him on the map this year - we suspect he'll be getting the lead role soon.

Dylan O'Brien

Dylan O'Brien has always had fans in his role as Stiles in Teen Wolf, but it's his starring role in the sci-fi movie The Maze Runner, based on the novel by James Dashner, that really got people talking this year.

5 Seconds of Summer

These chilled out Aussie pop punkers burst onto the music scene this year (with the endorsement of their pals One Direction) and it looks like they might be here to stay.

Talk about leading man material, British actor Theo James made audiences swoon as Four in Divergent alongside Shailene Woodley.

Austin Mahone

The Mahomies (his fans) might say that Austin has always been a star, but this year he's slowly been taking, releasing his album The Secret this year.

Avan Jogia

Twisted may not be renewed for another season, but Avan Jogia definitely made an impression as the troubled teen who returns home - we can't wait to see what he does next.
