This is a difficult one.

Maybe reduce it to five?

I'd love to participate but the thought of going through a decade's worth of feature films and ranking 10 of them is daunting.

My original idea was 5 but while making my list it was difficult for me to decide whom to include and whom to exclude, so I made it to ten.

But seeing how it's been a month and not a single user has commented, I guess that might a problem.

You can share your top 5 picks for now, if you want. I'll wait a bit more for the others to share their thoughts. If they also want to pick only 5, I'll do it officially. :)

Okay... so I restricted the films to those with at least 50,000 votes and 6.0 IMDb averages; and sorted them by my own rating. That's 214 titles. I won't look at titles that I rated below 7.

I'm using this post as a scratchpad for now... candidates in no particular order:

  1. Joaquin Phoenix, Joker
  2. Leonardo di Caprio, Inception
  3. Jessica Rothe, Happy Death Day & Happy Death Day 2U
  4. Benedict Cumberbatch, Dr. Strange & other MCU films
  5. Leonardo di Caprio again, Shutter Island
  6. Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina
  7. Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook
  8. Jessica Chastain, Interstellar
  9. Matthew McConaughey, Interstellar
  10. Lupita Nyong'o, Us
  11. Samuel L. Jackson, Glass
  12. Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman and other DCEU titles
  13. Ben Affleck, Argo
  14. Samuel L. Jackson again, Unthinkable

Okay, that's a workable shortlist.

I'll trim it down later,

Yeah, after actually looking back on the films and thinking about them, 10 was actually a bit too LOW - I had to scratch 4 from my shortlist.

PS: If you are restricting to performances in a single film, please use Dr. Strange for Cumberbatch and the first Happy Death film for Rothe.

You're not all that bad a dude.

After my recent bout with COVID and very nearly losing someone very close to same, I'm trying to be less of an asshole... focus on what's really important and all that stuff.

Clean slate?

Lol.

Hey,

I guess you have your reasons. Can you ... bump Willem Dafoe, The Lighthouse (2019) up?
