Top 5 Lead Actresses of 2016


1.
Isabelle Huppert as Michèle Leblanc
Elle

Michèle Leblanc alone is a compelling character, but the character becomes even more fascinating with how Isabelle Huppert owned it with no mercy, no qualms and no reservations.

2.
Sasha Lane as Star
American Honey

I am mesmerized all throughout American Honey because of Sasha Lane. I don't know if it's her face, her character or the film itself but Lane certainly has the ability to glue her viewers in by her vulnerability, grit and overall irresistible presence.

3.
Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy
Jackie

It's not the way Natalie Portman mimicked Jacqueline Kennedy that impressed me most in Jackie, it's her way of shifting different kinds of raw emotions in a blink of an eye.

4.
Meryl Streep as Florence Foster Jenkins
Florence Foster Jenkins

There is always a place for Meryl Streep in my rankings because she's simply brilliant. In Florence Foster Jenkins, she's so sincere that she got me all laughing and crying at the same time.

5.
Viola Davis as Rose Maxon
Fences

They say you need to act is if you're not acting to be great, but Viola negated that as she acts her heart, soul and snot out in Fences.
