Pantys '19: Performers, Part Two -- Actresses

Earlier today I shared with you my ten (well really twenty, with the runners-up included) favorite performances from actors in 2019. Now the time's come for my ten (well twenty really, with the runners-up) favorite performances from actresses coming out of 2019. That's how things work, see? Amazing. 

And no, sidenote, I don't really know anymore why I'm splitting these things up by gender in the year that is 2020 (not to mention even using the word "actress"), except it gives me a good way to split this into two lists and thereby include twice as many names -- I try to do my "Actor to Actor" series when I can manage my time well enough since it sidesteps all this, but this year we're falling to the old standby due to time constraints. So Actors and Actresses it is. Yadda and yadda, in no particular order I give you...

I did like the actress from Parasite, same with Isabelle Huppert but, I liked her in Greta, with Chloe Grace Moretz.

Gah so many of these I still need to see - Lady on Fire, Gloria Bell, Piercing, Clemency, Frankie ... But from what I've seen, it was a Florence Pugh, ScarJo, and Yeo-jeong Jo year for me. Oh, and fairly often I think back on Nazanin Boniadi in Hotel Mumbai, so her too.

I scrolled your post multiple times up and down and did not see a single Laura Dern.
This is sad.

I KNOW, I KNOW. And I will defend Laura's Oscar win to the end of time, I think she's fab in both Marriage Story and Little Women. She's like 21th on my list.
