A nice surprise from The Hollywood Reporter today: They have included Toni in their list of the best television performances of the year for “Wanderlust” – the BBC1/Netflix series which went criminally under the radar. Their full list can be found here, and here’s what they wrote about Toni:

It’s shouldn’t be surprising to find Collette here. She can do anything. And she has, in multiple roles. But as a psychotherapist in this small Netflix series about a troubled marriage where the sex has gone missing, she’s particularly effective. She’s strong, vulnerable, funny, intelligent and tackles what it means to be sexual — and sexy — at a certain age (her character has kids who are 25, 18 and 16), without making that seem out of the ordinary. But the beauty of her work here is how it goes beyond the sex into the wanting, and into the rationalizing. This is a little gem of a series and Collette’s marvelous performance is the unifying element that makes it work. — Tim Goodman
