Fan Favorite Actresses 2019

With critically acclaimed work in award-worthy films and crowd-pleasing roles in broad entertainment, there was no shortage of memorable actresses who left their mark on pop culture in 2019. Our list of 25 Favorite Actress Golden Tomato Award candidates included a pair of Game of Thrones alumni (Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams), a quartet of MCU heroines (Brie Larson, Scarlett Johansson, Zendaya, and Tessa Thompson), and genre-hopping work from versatile stars (Awkwafina in The Farewell and Jumanji: The Next Level, Florence Pugh in Midsommar and Little Women). Only one of them, however, was nominated for two Academy Awards in acting categories, and she appropriately blew away all of the competition to win the GTA here. Not only did Scarlett Johansson serve a crucial role in Avengers: Endgame, but her turn as a frustrated wife and mother going through a divorce in Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story and her work as the titular character’s activist mother in Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit earned her Oscar nominations for both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively. While she didn’t win either of those awards, she was the runaway favorite here, more than tripling the tally of runner-up Emilia Clarke as she earned almost a third of all the votes.

The order below reflects the number of total votes cast for each TV show by users in a poll that ran on RT from January 9 to February 16.

Scarlett Johansson
Not only did Johansson break our hearts in Endgame, but she earned two Oscar nominations, one for Best Actress for Marriage Story and one for Best Supporting Actress for Jojo RabbitAvengers: Endgame, Marriage Story, Jojo Rabbit


Emilia Clarke
Game of Thrones may have ended on a Rotten note according to the Tomatometer, but a less-than-stellar final season did not rub off on fans’ affection for Mother of Dragons, Clarke, who also charmed in holiday flick, Last ChristmasGame of Thrones, Last Christmas

Florence Pugh
Talk about a Certified Fresh streak: Pugh began 2019 with wrestling dramedy Fighting With My Family, then earned instant Scream Queen status in Ari Aster’s Midsommar, before stealing the show as Amy March in Little WomenMidsommar, Little Women, Fighting with My Family

Margot Robbie
Robbie didn’t need pages of dialogue to make an impression as Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and she followed that performance up with Bombshell, earning an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of aspiring Fox News host Kayla. Bombshell, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Lupita Nyong’o
We’re not over Nyong’o’s Oscar snub for her landmark work in Jordan Peele’s Us, and fans aren’t either. Nyong’o also showcased her comedic chops in zombie-comedy Little Monsters and returned as Maz Kanata in Rise of Skywalker. Us, Little Monsters, The Rise of Skywalker
