Vote For Your Favorite 2021 Actress

Our annual Fan Favorite categories offer a way for Rotten Tomatoes readers to recognize the films, TV shows, actors, and creators they loved in 2021, which provided us with a wealth of entertainment and incredible performances even as the coronavirus pandemic continued to take its toll.

The 25 potential Fan Favorite Actresses arguably had a better year than their male counterparts, considering how many of them — Hailee Steinfeld, Zendaya, Awkwafina, and Stephanie Beatriz, for starters — scored multiple notable projects in 2021. But even those on the list who only had one credit to their names in 2021 knocked it out of the park; think Lady Gaga in House of Gucci, Elisabeth Olsen in WandaVision, or Jung Hoyeon in Squid Game. In other words, this is a stacked category, so take look at the list below — it’s in alphabetical order — cast your vote, and come back tomorrow, because you’re allowed one vote per day, which means you can keep coming back to help make sure your favorite wins. Make sure you do it before January 26th, though, because that’s when we’ll close the polls, and winners will be announced on January 31st.
