My Ten Best Performances of This TV Season


Inspired by both Rant of a Diva and Oscar Tracker's Top 25 Performances of the TV Season lists, I went ahead and did my own- only scaled down to a top 10. Also, my love for rankings couldn't resist making a list. So here it goes: 

10. 
alfie2
Jane Krakowski (30 Rock)
Immensely underused, but steals every scene she's in.

9.
Kristen_Wiig-1
Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live)
The declining show's MVP for the third season in a row.

8.
Sands_sd1
Stark Sands (Generation Kill)
Moral dilemmas on the battlefields never looked so good.

7.
drew_barrymore18
Drew Barrymore (Grey Gardens)
Career best gracefully exceeded everyone's expectations.

6.
poehler
Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreations)
Storms out of the gate with heart and hilarity.

5.
hugh_jackman1
Hugh Jackman (The 81st Annual Academy Awards)
Redefining hosting criteria while not hogging all the attention.

4.
neil-patrick-harris_l
Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother)
Nearly impossible to take your eyes off his charismatic charm.

3.
connie-britton-9
Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights)
Never resorting to the easier desperate housewife route.

2.
jim-parsons-big-bang_l
Jim Parson (The Big Bang Theory)
Humanizing an inhuman with impeccable comedic timing.

1.
020309Elisabeth-Moss-2s
Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men)
Brewing the perfect storm for Draper's ultimate nemesis.

Nice list! I love those pictures!

I'm not sure about the nod to Poehler. We've seen a whole lot better from her at SNL (at least in my opinion of course).

And yay for Moss! The Emmys better get that one right...........
