“Knives Out” star Ana de Armas and “Ozark’s” Julia Garner led IMDb’s list of the Top 10 Stars of 2020, TheWrap has learned exclusively. Additionally, “The Witcher” actress Anya Chalotra and “The Umbrella Academy” cast member Aidan Gallagher came in first and second in the database’s rankings for this year’s Top 10 Breakout Stars.

Chalotra, who has just received an IMDb STARmeter award, also landed at No. 3 on the overall stars list, while Millie Bobby Brown came in fourth and “The Boys” actress Erin Moriarty was fifth.

For breakouts, Gallagher was followed by “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” actress Maria Bakalova in third and “The Wrong Missy” star Lauren Lapkus in fourth.

See the full Top 10 Stars and Top 10 Breakout Stars lists below, which IMDb calculates based on the page views of more than 200 million monthly visitors to the website’s STARmeter chart, an IMDbPro resource, rather than on statistical samplings, reviews from professional critics or box office performance.
