This year saw Maggie Gyllenhaal, 36, step into the spotlight in a new way. Although she’s been a leading actress for more than a decade since the eccentric 2002 comedy “Secretary,” she has mostly been known for her supporting roles in films such as “The Dark Knight” and “Crazy Heart.” In this year’s television series “The Honorable Woman,” written for the BBC and SundanceTV, she proved she could anchor a dramatic story on her own.
