Carrie Coon without the shadow of a doubt. For me it's between her and Elisabeth Moss in Mad Men in the fight for best TV performance of all-time. Everyone else was great, but she was the clear MVP for me.
I already voted over a year ago but feel the need to comment. It's one of the strongest TV ensembles ever but Carrie Coon delivers an all-timer of a performance that's above and beyond anyone else in the history of television.

Carrie Coon gives the finest television performance I’ve ever seen, but I want to give special mention to Amy Brenneman’s work. She fleshes out Laurie so beautifully over the course of the show and “Certified” is stunning.
Coon - she's integral - but it's no coincidence that the three Eccleston-centric episodes are the most memorable of each season. Given the chance, he carries this. The poll results are a fairly accurate representation of the quality we see on the show.
