AFT Awards: Best Limited Performance

This is the twenty-first category of the 8th 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:
Alice Olivia Clarke (Land Ho), Chris O'Dowd (St. Vincent), Lena Dunham (Happy Christmas)

The winner:
Lindsay Duncan (Birdman) epitomized the critique of star culture in her film with a brilliantly on-point and unbridled dose of unforgiving disgust.

Other nominees:
Karrie Crouse (Land Ho) and Elizabeth McKee (Land Ho) infused the perfect non-masculine energy into their film as the token females who proved that the humor and attitude of two old men truly was harmless. Matt Damon (Interstellar) and Wes Bentley (Interstellar) both lent a certain realistic gravitas to their roles as those on the verge of major explorations and discoveries.
