The Performer | Sarah Paulson
The Show | American Horror Story: Cult
The Episode | “Election Night” (Sept. 5, 2017)
The Performance | Going into Cult’s premiere, we so expected another fine performance from Paulson, a four-time Emmy nominee for her work in past Ahs seasons, that we didn’t really anticipate being surprised. We’ve seen her play scared before, after all — a lot. But Ryan Murphy’s muse managed to not only impress but stun us with the intensity of the fear that she was able to conjure up.

I know what you’re thinking. A movie where Jessica Chastain snuggles adorable animals and manages a zoo. The Zookeeper’s Wife is a surefire feel-good critter drama – Oh My God, A Saving Private Ryan Scene Recreated With Animals. Bring me back to Chastain nuzzling a lion cub, please. It couldn’t possibly get – oh, nope. Ok. Cue Holocaust depression brought on by Warsaw’s Jewish ghetto, and a heavy German presence in WWII Poland. Granted, those of you who’ve read Diane Ackerman’s bestselling novel already know the story of Antonina Zabinski and her family’s Jewish refugee smuggling. Don’t expect director Niki Caro to take it easy on her audience. The Warsaw Zoo initiative helped save almost 3,000 lives from extermination, but not without sacrifice. This is how.
