I will nominate:

1. Kaspersky Internet Security - for being probably the most complete suite, combining light protection, a great behaviour blocker (System Watcher), Application Control which can be configured as default deny , and several great tools as "Ransomware remediation" which rollbacks ransomware action, Private Browsing which basically hides you from trackers online, and many more.

2. BitDefender Total Security - which basically should be awarded the Revelation Award since the complete turnover their devs did with the product. In 2020/2021 version you can find an extremely light antivirus (even lighter than ESET for me), a very very sophisticated behaviour blocker, a secure folder module with whitelist for specific programs, and a top tier web protection. I will repeat what I have been saying for a while now: Whenever BitDefender implements an Application Control module, it will be my top tier antivirus and probably gain much more users off Kaspersky. The only thing that's keeping me away from installing it is the fact that I need to pair it up with an antiexe, since there's no way I'm trusting my security to a blacklisting-type of software.
