NCIS' Coté de Pablo Accepts TVLine's Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crush Award!

Whereas her NCIS costar Michael Weatherly’s acceptance speech was comparatively muted and awash in crocodile tears, Coté de Pablo laid claim to her own TVLine Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Tournament trophy with a bit of fanfare — even offering up some festive intro music.

NCIS Exclusive: The L Word‘s Karina Lombard Cast as Ziva’s [Spoiler]

I hand-delivered de Pablo’s award to her on the NCIS set earlier this week, making clear how impressive a feat Ziva David had pulled off, besting the likes of JAG‘s Sarah ‘Mac’ MacKenzie, Criminal Minds’ JJ Jareau and Chuck‘s Sarah Walker during our bracket tournament, before ultimately triumphing — after a 72-hour see-saw bout — over fellow finalist Kate Beckett, from Castle.

Press PLAY below to hear de Pablo’s speech, learn where she’ll be keeping her trophy, and maybe (just maybe) receive a “thank you” kiss from the brunette beauty.

  • CBS stole it for her. She was losing to Sarah Walker before they put the word out on the NCIS page and the fans of the near completely indistinguishable show won it for her. Slightly bitter Chuck fan? Yes I am. That being said I’m glad Cote de Pablo won it and not whatsherface from SVU

  • I just love this video! @NCIS_CBS is so lucky to have such a beautiful actress on their show. Cote is talented as well! And of course, NCIS is very lucky to have the hottest Law Enforcement Crushes winners with Michael as well. It’s a win-win for all NCIS fans. :)

    Thank you, Matt, for sharing with NCIS fans!

  • Shoulda been Beckett.

    Comment by Jersey – March 6, 2012 03:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree!!! Stana Katic is a million times better.

    • Ziva David is a much more powerful presence than Kate Beckett, if you’re talking about TV characters. If you’re talking about looks then it’s a toss up.

  • Love her… I hope Tiva really happens. So bummed it’s a repeat tonight.

  • Was Anna Torv from Fringe nominated?
    Because I’d take her over any of these woman. Please!

  • Cote is amazing. Sexy, smart and so natural.Her play with Michael makes this TV couple shine, making us believe that love and affection is only salvation in their deadly dangerous world.

  • Cote, 20 millions fans love you!

    Comment by Seawind – March 6, 2012 05:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Stana Katic should’ve got the prize. And I don’t understand how did Ziva pass in the finale while having 58% against Sarah Walker’s 78%??

    Comment by valezza – March 7, 2012 01:14 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I scheme it was an inside job. TV Line must like Cote more than Stana. We’ll never know.

      • check the fact before you post.

        Comment by Sherry – March 8, 2012 11:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • You’re reading the bracket wrong; the percentage listed is what they won the previous round with (i.e. Ziva beat JJ 58.6% to 41.4%).

  • Congrats Cote you deserve it.you are beautiful inside and out.

  • Congrats again Cote, you and Michael deserve it!
    Now could you suggest to the witers that as a reward we’ll get some Tiva love soon? :)

  • How this person won is beyond me. How could anyone think she’s more attractive than Yvonne Strahovski. It’s just not possible. She isn’t hot by any standards. In fact, she looks a lot like a man.

    Comment by Mark – March 7, 2012 09:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • please are you blind or what,I am okay you love Yvinne Strahovski, how you can’t see that Cote de Pablo is so gorgeous, but you don’t need to discredit with basic thing, you can’t agree but and I respect you opinion,but about she looks like man no, it is offense to her,you don’t her, but you should be more objective with your opinion, Cote as well as Yvinne are so gorgeous, talented actresses and they deserve respect of us their fans

    • @mark – Life is too short to be a sore loser.

  • Love it! Cote is a fantastic actress and from the looks of things, a very classy lady. Love the thank-you video. :)

  • Cote/Ziva is the main reason I watch NCIS. Ziva is the most inspiring and beautiful character out there.

  • She totally deserves this award, great character and beauty and having to put up with Tony makes her even more deserving. Congrats.

    • JMO, Ziva deserves someone better than Tony or Ray.

  • I like that she doesnt wear the low cut shirts that the other Cops put on, that just goes to show you her true talent stands out, without having to dress to show cleavage..Thank you NCIS for the great taste in clothes for your cast….

  • Congrats, Cote. Very cool acceptance speech also…

  • I love NCIS and NCIS LA. I loved it’s predecessor Jag too. Losing Kate was a real loss to the show but Ziva is just as awesome

  • CdP? Really? What is that? I took a nap & when I woke up everyone had forgotten how to spell. We’ve stopped teaching cursive writing in our schools. Math skills have all but disappeared. Kids can’t tell time on an anolog watch.,. Stop me when I’ve dumbed us down enough for you. The computor & “smart” phone have replaced our imaginations, curiosity & intelligence. Remember when we used to actualy communicate with one another face to face with real words and sentaces? Ah…the good old days .

  • When Kate was killed, I almost quit watching NCIS. Kate was great, and I couldn’t understand why the show would drop her, however I decided to give NCIS a couple more episodes. With the advent of Rizzoli & Isles, I realized that leaving the NCIS was probably Kate’s idea. The appearance of Ziva added a completely new aspect, and an outstanding actress, to NCIS. If Cote de Pablo leaves NCIS, so do I.
