A scene-stealer from "Crazy Rich Asians." A teen actress who brought aching realism to a movie about adolescence. A boundary-breaking country star. And a comedian who used everything from laughter to rage to make a searing statement on women and society.

Awkwafina, Elsie Fisher, Kane Brown and Hannah Gadsby are among the eight performers whose distinguished work earned them a spot on The Associated Press' annual Breakthrough Entertainers list. Other honorees for 2018 are Henry Golding, Ella Mai, Natasha Rothwell and John David Washington.
