If you wondered how the Apple TV+ series Dickinson beat shows like WandaVision, Loki, or even Chucky for Fan Favorite TV Series, this category may answer your question. Last year’s winner, Zendaya, had a strong chance of repeating this year with her appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home, but she ultimately came up short. The star of the aforementioned WandaVision, Elisabeth Olsen, and Florence Pugh, who made her own MCU debut in Black Widow and became one of the highlights of Hawkeye, were also strong candidates, with Lady Gaga placing high for her performance in House of Gucci.
But in the end, the crown goes to none other than Hailee Steinfeld, who had a fantastic 2021 with Hawkeye, Arcane, and, yes, Dickinson.
