    For once, here I am making a thread. If it’s already been made, please link me the original discussion. I thought it’d be fun to rank our favourite tv performances from this year’s cycle – doesn’t matter whether nominated or not at the Emmys -, regardless of their categories.

    I’ll start, with a top 10 – that was a challenging one and even without watching so many shows, I had to leave out some great performances. I also only picked one performance from each show.

    1. Gaia Girace, My Brilliant Friend
    2. Pamela Adlon, Better Things
    3. Anna Torv, Mindhunter
    4. Rhea Seehorn, Better Call Saul
    5. Brian Cox, Succession
    6. Helena Bonham Carter, The Crown
    7. Regina King, Watchmen
    8. Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm
    9. Issa Rae, Insecure
    10. Maura Tierney, The Affair

    1. Shira Haas “Unorthodox”

    2. Daisy Edgar-Jones & Paul Mescal “Normal People”

    3. Merritt Wever “Unbelievable”

    4. Cate Blanchett “Mrs America”

    5. Viola Davis “HTGAWM”

    6. Catherine O’Hara & Annie Murphy “Schitt’s Creek”

    7. Laura Linney “Ozark”

    8. Louis Hofmann “Dark”

    9. Yvonne Strahovski “Handmaid’s Tale”

    10. Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook and Matthew McFadyen “Succession”

    Honorable mentions (In no particular order)-

    Regina King “Watchmen” (she’s amazing in the last four episodes but I wasn’t a huge fan for most of the other episodes)

    Jean Smart “Watchmen” (always a joy, but can’t bump out anyone else on the list)

    The Supporting Actresses of “Mrs. America” (They were great, but Cate was just on a different level and I didn’t want to put in some of them on the list and not include the others)

    Julia Garner “Ozark” (felt like Ruth kind of took a backseat this season but Garner stole the show whenever she was onscreen)

    Elisabeth Moss “THT” (June might be making some pretty frustrating decisions but Moss remains fantastic)

    Helena Bonham Carter & Josh O’Connor “The Crown” (both were fantastic)

    Laura Dern “Big Little Lies” (iconic)

    Zendaya “Euphoria” (fantastic portrayal of addicted and depression)

    Toni Colette & Kaitlyn Dever “Unbelievable” (Wever gave my favorite performance of the trio but they do fantastic work as well)
