MY TOP 5 PERFORMANCES OF 2016 BY AN ACTOR IN A MOVIE
Order is from 1-5. This is for any role (lead, supporting, or otherwise)
- •Denzel Washington in FENCESIt's Denzel doing what Denzel does best - out-acting everyone in sight (except Viola).
- •Mahersala Ali in MOONLIGHTThis was the opposite of Denzel - a beautifully understated performance. Mahersala knows how to just melt into a character like no other.
- •Joel Edgerton in LOVINGIf you've seen the documentary which this movie is based on, you know just how amazing Joel is in this part. He embodies Richard Loving.
- •Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, and Trevante Rhodes in MOONLIGHTThis is kind of cheating, but MOONLIGHT has so many great performances. These three actors do a magnificent job as Chiron in three different acts of the play that is his life.
- •Michael Shannon in NOCTURNAL ANIMALSI really wasn't feeling NOCTURNAL ANIMALS. The story within the story should've been it's own movie. Michael Shannon proves a great actor can be great in a mediocre film.
