Over the past year, and across satirical comedies, sweat-inducing dramas and blood-drenched horrors, Hollywood's leading ladies pulled out all the stops, and sometimes left us captivated with only a hint of what's to come.

With the final Hunger Games installment just hours away from its wide release and Joy following closely behind, Jennifer Lawrence's ending the year with a bang, and Shailene Woodley's following suit as the thrilling Divergent series hit its halfway point. Plus, as Pretty Little Liars approaches a rumored final Season 7, we're reminded of just how integral Shay Mitchell's Emily has been to the show's success, and Kat Graham has been so solid as Bonnie on Vampire Diaries we're almost able to cope with longtime star Nina Dobrev's departure.

Conversely, Lady Gaga's American Horror Story Countess role has given the show fresh life (at the expense of some others), and though it's only in its sophomore season, Jane The Virgin is already considered to be one of TV's comedic staples, thanks to Gina Rodriguez. Plus, with her big silver screen debut in Trainwreck, which she also wrote, Amy Schumer has proven she's got true star power as her Inside Amy Schumer approaches a well-deserved fourth season.

Finally, let's be honest: Emma Roberts' "Chanel-'o-Ween" segment on breakout hit Scream Queens was must-see TV. Still, she had a whole lot of competition — so which of the aforementioned stars will be named Best Actress as part of the PopCrush Fan Choice Awards?

Look back at some of the best performances delivered by 2015's most buzzworthy actresses below, and be sure to vote for who you think deserves the prestigious PopCrush honor until December 1 at 5 PM EST!
