This is the nineteenth category of the 10th 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 is sometimes split into male and female and sometimes been combined.
Anne Consigny (Elle)
Kathy Bates (Complete Unknown), well-known as a spectacular scene-stealer, did it again opposite Danny Glover in a mesmerizing scene that stood out as the best part of her film.
Christine Woods (Dean) made a great impression amid showier talent, showing her tremendous contributions to cinema of all genres. Alice Isaaz (Elle) stood out in a cast of many for a fierce and convincing turn as a truly horrible and unkind woman. Maya Rudolph (Maggie’s Plan) continued to make her mark in a supporting role as a dependable friend with plenty of advice to offer. Cloris Leachman (Is That a Gun in Your Pocket?) proves that, at nearly ninety years old, she’s still capable of stealing a scene and making her mark on a film.
