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.
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 Rabbit. Avengers: Endgame, Marriage Story, Jojo Rabbit
