AFT Awards: Best Limited Performance – Female

This is the twenty-first category of the 4th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category. Due to a surplus of nominees this year, I’ve decided to split it into two categories, male and female.

The winner:
Jessica Barden (Tamara Drewe) portrayed a young girl with a major crush who was very believably willing to take her feelings way too far.

Other nominees:
Rooney Mara (The Social Network) did a magnificent job of delivering Aaron Sorkin’s dialogue as a jilted girlfriend incredibly capable of chewing out her egotistical ex-boyfriend. Charlotte Christie (The Social Network) was a great foil to Barden’s more proactive character, providing plenty of sarcastic commentary. Emily Mortimer (Shutter Island) delivered a fantastic blend of haunting and tragic as a mysterious patient. Alexandra Maria Lara (The City of Your Final Destination) was short, cruel, and completely compelling as a woman with considerably little faith in her partner.
