Erika Christensen - "Parenthood" (FYC clip) : "Parenthood" skirts the line of soap opera from time to time, but usually lands on the straight drama side of things. Erika Christensen helped solidify that positioning this year with a difficult arc as the villain of season five (or at least the "Parenthood" version of a villain). Despite making some poor choices, Christensen gave Julia heart and framed her choices with an emotional reasoning understandable, if not wholly logical. She was human, basically, and a lot of the time that's the hardest part to play.
