IMDb: Ana de Armas (‘Knives Out’), Anya Chalotra (‘The Witcher’) Top Stars in 2020

Amazon-owned IMDb Dec. 1 unveiled the Top 10 Stars and Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2020. Topping the lists, respectively, Knives Out star and Golden Globe nominee Ana de Armas and Anya Chalotra from Netflix’s “The Witcher.”

Rather than base its annual rankings on small statistical samplings, reviews of professional critics, or box office performance, IMDb determines its Top 10 lists using data from proprietary data, which is based on the actual page views of more than 200 million monthly visitors to IMDb.

“Our lists … highlight the actors and actresses our fans and professional customers were most excited and curious about this year,”  Matt Kumin, head of IMDbPro, said in a statement.

IMDbPro STARmeter rankings are determined by page views of more than 200 million monthly visitors to IMDb worldwide.
