I definitely had to make some tough choices for this list as well. notably, only one of the Dead To Me leads, no Grace OR Frankie, none of the Girls5Eva, or any of the many potentials that could ahve landed here. But, here are my top 10.
10) Selena Gomez (Only Murders In The Building) Hulu
9) Christina Appelgate (Dead To Me) Netflix
8) Rose Byrne (Physical) Apple Plus
7) Maya Rudolph (Loot) Apple plus)
6) Judy Greer (Reboot) Hulu
5) Quinta Brunson (Abbott elementary) ABC
4) Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous ms Maisel) Amazon
3) Sarah Lancashire (Julia) HBo MAX
2) Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll) Netflix
1) Jean Smart (Hacks) HBo MAX
Smart’s performance in Hacks really is that good. I know it feels like something everyone says, but it’s true.I’m all about awarding talent not on anyone’s radar, but i won’t punish someone for being great and popular. That being said, Lyonne doesn’t get quite enough love for her really diverse and challenging work on the second season of Russian Doll. Will there be a third? Unlikely.
