From getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to giving a fantastically unhinged performance in Showtime’s new series “On Becoming a God in Central Florida,” Kirsten Dunst is having a moment. But was she ever really not? The national treasure has consistently delivered top-notch work, wielding her power in dramas such as “Melancholia,” and brandishing nutty comic gifts in films such as “Bachelorette” and “Drop Dead Gorgeous.”

Recently, Dunst, who earned an Emmy nomination in 2016 for TV’s “Fargo,” attributed her lack of awards recognition to not playing the game, and to starring in films that audiences and critics pan upon release, but grow to love over time. There is more than enough to love about her career, and in celebration of “On Becoming a God,” which was just renewed for a second season by Showtime, IndieWire has rounded up Dunst’s top 10 performances.
