I have not watched too many TV shows over the last few years because it just got too much. However, with the Disney + Marvel shows, I started to dive back into some selected TV shows. I do not cover it as completely as I used to, but I have enough to cover the year in review.
Favorite TV Shows: WandaVision. This was at the beginning of the year and it still becomes my best show of 2021. Love Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany. There was a feeling where I started to look forward to Friday’s show drop early in the week.
Runners-Up (in order) #2. Loki #3. Squid Game #4. Hawkeye #5. The Rookie #6. What If…? #7. Falcon & Winter Soldier #8. Sweet Tooth #9. Whose Line Is It Anyway #10. Superman & Lois.
Best Actor (TV Series): Jeremy Renner. This was a surprise for me, but Renner rocked Hawkeye with his tone and his subtle acting style. Close, but give it to Clint Barton.
Runners-Up: #2. Paul Bettany (WandaVision) #3. Tom Hiddleston (Loki) #4. Lee Jung-Jae (Squid Game) #5. Sebastian Stan (Falcon & Winter Soldier) #6. Anthony Mackie (Falcon & Winter Soldier) #7. Nathan Fillon #8. Christian Convery (Sweet Tooth)
Best Actress (TV Series): Elizabeth Olson. There are other great actresses this year, but for my money, Olson dominated her series like none others. She was so fully wonderful.
Runners-Up: #2. Hailee Steinfeld (Hawkeye) #3. Sophia DiMartino (Loki) #4. Bitsie Tullach (Superman & Lois)
Best Supporting Actor (TV Series): Owen Wilson (Loki). Moebius became an amazing fan favorite and when it looked like he had been killed, it was painful. We all want Moebius on that jet ski.
Runners-Up: #2. Carl Lumbly (Falcon and Winter Soldier) #3. Wyatt Russell #4. Nonso Anozie (Sweet Tooth)
Best Supporting Actress (TV Show): Kathryn Hahn (WandaVision). It was Agatha all along. Kathryn Hanh was so entertaining, so brilliant as Agatha Harkness that she is getting her own spin off series.
Runners-Up: #2. Teyonah Parris (WandaVision) #3. Jung Ho-yeon (Squid Game) 4.Melissa O’Neil (The Rookie)
