05. Marge Gunderson

Fargo (1996), Frances McDormand

I love absolutely everything about Marge Gunderson. A pregnant officer of the law in a small town in North Dakota who has a double homicide on her hands and oh jeez, would ya look at that! Her husband got his mallard on the three-cent stamp and how important those three-cent stamps are! People need them every time the postage goes up, don’t ya know.
