Forget about Matthew McConaughey; the breakout star of True Detective was unquestionably Daddario, who had pulses pounding with one very revealing sex scene. The 28-year-old actress officially made the leap this year, graduating from roles in dreck like Texas Chainsaw 3D and the Percy Jackson franchise to HBO's standout series. Up next: the pulpy Burying the Ex and the big-budget disaster flick San Andreas. We wouldn't bet against her, especially with Barack Obama in her corner. It pays to have fans in high places.
