3. She continued to proudly fight for LGBT equality

Earlier in the year, Julianne joined Lambda Legal's "I Do" campaign in urging people to not only support marriage equality, but to look towards the future and see how we can affect positive change in all areas of LGBT life. Julianne Moore: not only making movies, but making change. 

2. She was a silver-y force to be reckoned with in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

Katniss was never sure if she could trust President Coin, but as an audience we knew we could trust Julianne to give a chillingly on-point performance, right down to her very last moment of screen time. Leave it to Julianne to take an already successful franchise by storm.
