    This is actually really hard but I’m gonna try to make one cause I’m bored right now. 

    I decided to add a 1 person per show rule for the sake of variety.

    1) Eva Green (Penny Dreadful)
    2) Charlie Cox (Daredevil)
    3) Claire Danes (Homeland)
    4) Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)
    5) Keri Russell (The Americans)
    6) Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story: Freak Show)
    7) Gillian Anderson (Hannibal)
    8) Justin Theroux (The Leftovers)
    9) Julie Bowen (Modern Family)
    10) Jamie Dornan (The Fall) 

    Not here because 1pps: Jessica Lange, Vincent D’onofrio, Matthew Rhys, Ty Burrell, Carol Kane

    Not here because still haven’t finished their shows yet: Clive Owen, Kyle Chandler, Ben Mendelsohn

    I wanted to add Andy Samberg, Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, Yael Stone, Lizzy Caplan, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Thomas Middleditch really bad but couldn’t find a place for them.

    I don’t think any performer had an extraordinary season, but there were a bunch of pretty good ones. Once again, I have to catch up with a good amount of comedies. Frances McDormand gave my favorite performance of the season, but I’m not gonna compare actors on long series to miniseries/TV movies. 

    1. Claire Danes, Homeland
    2. Aiden Young, Rectify
    3. Walton Goggins, Justified
    4. Clive Owen, The Knick
    5. Adelaide Clemons, Rectify
    6. Eva Green, Penny Dreadful
    7. Jefferey Tambor, Transparent
    8. Ben Mendelsohn, Bloodline
    9. Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black
    10. Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul
