​​With the new year upon us, awards voters are looking back at some of the best performances of 2021 amid the winter awards season.

In a Variety Awards Circuit video presented by HBO, senior editors Danielle Turchiano and Michael Schneider revealed their picks for best individual performances, including actors from “Succession,” “Ted Lasso,” “Insecure,” “Pose” and “The Chair.”

One of the biggest shows this year was “Succession.” As praise continues for Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook, Schneider said J. Smith-Cameron and Nicholas Braun are unsung heroes.

“This is a character who started out very much in the shadows, not a big part in the show, but has grown — especially in her relationship with Kieran Culkin’s character,” Schneider said of Cameron.

Although FX’s “Pose” has wrapped up its series run, Turchiano said Indya Moore’s performance is highly deserving of recognition.

“By the end of the show, they really took her to such an interesting place as a business woman and as a family woman,” Turchiano said. “That allowed Indya to come into her own as a performer and shine in a number of ways.”

Sandra Oh, who is beloved by awards voters from her roles in “Killing Eve” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” stood out recently in Netflix’s “The Chair,” a show that has been overlooked by critics’ bodies so far.

“It’s a show that we shouldn’t forget about and a performance that we shouldn’t forget about,” said Schneider.

Other shows that have best-performer buzz include “Hacks,” with Jean Smart.

“I don’t know a comedy performance this year that I thought was stronger or more unique,” Turchiano said about Smart. Schneider, meanwhile, offered praise for her co-star Hannah Einbinder. “The fact that she could hold her own against an icon and really give it back — not everyone can do that, not everyone can play in that same ballpark, and Hannah was able to.”

Speaking of Hannahs, “Ted Lasso’s” Hannah Waddingham has been lauded for her performance in the series. But voters might also look to Nick Mohammed to extend commendations — especially considering his character’s breakthrough in Season 2.

“You see these little things of where he was going, and how the resentment he was feeling was twisting him and turning him into a different person,” said Turchiano.

With “Insecure” coming to an end after five seasons, Issa Rae (who created and starred in the show) went from an up-and-coming digital creator to a household name after the series’ success.

“If you’re stirring that much conversation, if you’re getting people paying attention and caring that much, you deserve some of these awards,” said Turchiano.
