AFT Awards: Best Limited Performance – Female

This is the twenty-second category of the 7th 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, which has on occasion been split into male and female and sometimes been combined.

Honorable mentions:
Jessica Alba (A.C.O.D.), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Kill Your Darlings), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Spectacular Now), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (The Spectacular Now)

The winner:
Jane Lynch (A.C.O.D.) contributed her signature zany energy to a role that was a crucial part of her comedy’s storyline.

Other nominees:
Cristin Milioti (The Wolf of Wall Street) was one of the only pure characters in her film, and she was a sweet and sadly doomed addition. Alma Jodorowsky (Blue is the Warmest Color) was the first and much less significant romantic interest for her film’s protagonist, but left a deep and lasting impression. Amanda Peet (The Way, Way Back) distinguished herself in a crowded ensemble as a party-oriented, moral-free beachgoer. Kyra Sedgwick (Kill Your Darlings) brought a certain disinterested gravitas to the role of a mother with absolutely no idea what her child was up to.
