    There have been a plethora of amazing performances in the history of the medium, but only a select number of them that can truly be called the greatest of all time. What do you guys think are some performances that deserve to be among the greatest?

    Elisabeth Moss in Mad Men is my number 1. The most recent all time great performance though was Aisha Hinds in “Minty” on Underground. Mind blowing performance. Also SMG on Buffy, Michael K Williams on The Wire, Lieb Schrieber on “Excusito” on Ray Donovan, Rhea Pearman on Cheers, Lucille Ball on I love Lucy, Amy Poelher on Parks and Rec, Nick Offerman on Parks and Rec, Tina Fey on 30 rock, JLD on Veep, Bryan Cranston on Breaking Bad, Claire Danes on Homeland, Tatiana Maslanay on Orphan Black, that’s all I can think of at the moment.
