I was the one who voted Dern.
And rightly so!

I voted for Rhea Seehorn(as someone already mentioned she is that good). My Runner-ups would be Sarah Snook and Laura Dern/Maryl Streep.

I voted Laura Dern but would be just as happy with Meryl Streep.
Since we’ve now seen every eligible performance, I feel very strongly that Shailene Woodley belongs in here. All of the predicted players are excellent in their shows, but they just benefit from coming out a lot more recently than BLL. Dern and Streep are legends and have narratives to carry them through the fact a year has passed since it aired with one being fresh off her Oscar win and the other being an icon who did her first non-limited series regular role.
As brilliant as Garner, McTeer, Newton and so on are in their shows, none of them had material this year that could rival the subtlety and nuance that Woodley delivered in season 2. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that playing fun, vibrant and dynamic scene-stealing characters like Maeve, Ruth etc doesn’t require the same skill and execution, I just feel Woodley gave multiple genuinely moving performances as Jane with the little screen time she had.July 9, 2020 at 7:53 pm #1203579222
18 votes for Janet McTeer? I think there’s something wrong with this poll. I may be wrong, but I don’t think there is THAT much passion for her.
More strangely… zero votes for Julia Garner??July 9, 2020 at 7:56 pm #1203579228
Snook. Runner up Seehorn.
not trusting this poll (or any poll moving forward) when they so obviously appear to be attracting trolls- there’s no explanation for McTeer having 18 votes compared to 0 for Garner.July 9, 2020 at 8:11 pm #1203579247
Yeah, all of our polls have been trolled lately, which takes substantial effort, but I guess that people are quarantined.
Dern has some other votes now.July 9, 2020 at 8:31 pm #1203579273
Lol I was gonna say are people just trolling because of the Garner and McTeer discussion yesterday.
I was almost ready to rewatch Ozark’s third season because I must have missed McTeer giving a win worthy performance. A nomination is deserved though.July 9, 2020 at 10:22 pm #1203579364This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.July 9, 2020 at 11:09 pm #1203579422

I’m actually torn between Sarah and Rhea. Sarah definitely has more screentime and definitely more meaty material.However Rhea is magnetic giving a very good subtle performance that overshadows even bob in better call saul.Im gonna vote for Rhea since she was overlooked for so longJuly 10, 2020 at 6:58 am #1203579715
