Top 10 Acting Performances of 2015-2016 TV


Looking back on the landscape of the 2015-2016 TV season, one thing is clear. The miniseries is where it's at for the best performances. From the understated tragedy of Oscar Isaac's character arc in "Show Me A Hero" to the fragile vulnerability of Lili Taylor on "American Crime", the various limited series provided a bevy of compelling characters and the A-grade acting to match. As a result, this year's Top 10 Performances was overwhelmingly dominated by shows with close-ended storylines. Below you'll find the full list of the Top 10 Performances that struck a chord with me this year.

  1. Oscar Isaac, Show Me A Hero
  2. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
  3. Bokeem Woodbine, Fargo
  4. Kirsten Dunst, Fargo
  5. Sarah Paulson, ACS: The People v. O. J. Simpson
  6. Idris Elba, Luther
  7. Lili Taylor, American Crime
  8. Louis C.K., Horace and Pete
  9. Steve Buscemi, Horace and Pete
  10. Jenifer Lewis, Black-ish

Honorable Mention: Jean Smart, Fargo (Best Supporting Actress in Limited Series/TV Movie)
