Krysten Ritter kicks serious ass in the role and not just in the show but as an actress. She does an amazing job of bringing Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos’ character to life and makes it seem like the whole thing was created just for her.

The 2016 Critics Choice Television Awards are in and thankfully this isn’t one of those years where we have to scream about an actress in geekdom to get recognized *cough Tatiana Maslany cough*. The show has been out for less than a month and Ritter has already been nominated.

We’re super stoked for her and we’ll have our fingers crossed.
