Best Of 2022: Top 10 Supporting Actress In A limited Series

There are no For your Consideration ads for me. I’m not on that level. So I put people where I think they should be, in terms of lead or supporting. If you think someone here should be a lead performance, I probably did not. Without further adieu, the top 10 are:

10) Annaleigh Ashford (Welcome To Chippendales) Hulu

9) Danielle Detweiler (From Scratch) Netflix

8) Margo Martindale (The watcher) netflix

7) Toni Collette (The Staircase) HBo MAX

6) Chloe Sevigny (The Girl From Plainville) Hulu

5) Jennifer Coolidge (The Watcher) Netflix

4) Moses Ingram (Obi-Wan) Disney Plus

3) Juno Temple (The Offer) Paramount Plus

2) Dominique Fishback (The Last Days Of Ptolemy Gray) Apple Plus

1) Julia Garner (Inventing Anna) Netflix

All the shows mentioned have audio description on their various platforms. I would say that 10-8 were tough to rank, 7 and 6 were almost a tie for me, then 5, then 4, and any one of my top 3 could have won depending on how the wind blew. Juno Temple, Dominique Fishback, and Julia Garner all brought strong powerful women to the screen this year in three very different stories, and very different roles. Ultimately, I went with Julia Garner, who seems to consistently disappear into a role. I have admittedly only seen her in a few things, but they are always so different. And, I saw her performance as supporting to Anna Chlumsky as she is the thing being investigated and written about. The story really is from Chlumsky’s perspective, even though Garner does have a lot of screentime for a supporting performance. But the same could be said about her 2nd and 3rd on the list. Juno Temple is arguably the female with the most screentime in The offer, and Dominique Fishback is the same in Ptolemy Gray.Both of them seem there to compliment and support someone else. Garner’s performance feels a lot more like Toni Colette’s performance, except Colette is dead for the duration of that show, and her performance comes in flashbacks. In both regards, the show seems to be about that person as a spectacle, or as a target, and less about the real lead of those stories, either the investigative reporter, or a deceitful husband.

Oh, and contrary to the internet, Moses Ingram was the best thing about obi Wan, and I assure you this is the only mention that show will have on my lists.
