    What are some of your favorite standout scenes from your favorite performers of the year?

    Frances McDormand-either yelling at the reporter or asking the priest to get the fuck out of her kitchen, or even just “Robbie!”

    Margot Robbie-begging to go to prison over being banned from ice skating

    Timothée Chalamet-maybe the train station scene or the fireplace, but it’s tough with him, it’s more overall naturalism and empathy for his character instead of one particular slice of drama

    Robert Pattinson-again, it’s more overall subtlety and restraint and minutia of reaction than one particular scene, I feel like this is kind of a new wave in acting that young people are embracing

    Laurie Metcalf-airport scene, the best small scene of one performer owning it in 2017, these are the scenes I love from supporting players

    Hong Chau-it’s tough because she has such good comedic delivery as well as really touching monologues; I’d go with the Jesus/Norway monologue over all

    Armie Hammer-the morning after he and Elio have sex, pulls off that fragile uncertainty so well

    Obviously for me the last scene in CMBYN when Elio was staring into the fireplace feeling the emotions of love and a broken heart. The background music of Visions of Gideon was amazing. When Elio stared into the camera it felt like he looked you in the eye and said he knew we all had felt this pain before. I heard Timothee say he made the decision to do that on his own and was not directed by Luca. For me that scene alone would make Timothee Chalamet a very worthy Oscar winner.
    The train station scene and the scene with his father at the end we’re incredible also. Stuhlberg was terrific.

    Florence Pugh’s crocodile tears or the “Tell me about your life, Anna” scene from Lady Macbeth are quite chilling. It’s a shame that film was so overlooked.

    That one baffled expression that Alma makes in response to Cyril saying “Reynolds likes a little belly in his women” in Phantom Thread may be one of the funniest moments in that film. She has a ton of great moments like that.

    Deckard’s interrogation scene in Blade Runner 2049 is quite well done. I would also extend a shout out to Woody Harrelson’s big dialogue scene in War for the Planet of the Apes.

     

    Jeremy Renner’s monologue in Wind River was arguably just as impressive as Stuhlbarg’s in CMBYN in that they were both perfectly delivered.

    The final sequence of Good Time is heartbreaking due to Benny Safdie’s performance being juxtaposed with “The Pure and the Damned”.

    Willem Dafoe slapping Ginger Ale out of the pedophile’s hand and berating him was one of the most satisfying scenes of 2017. The entire conclusion to the film is also phenomenally acted from the main cast.

    As modest of a scene it may be, Timmy’s scene in CMBYN where he apologises to Marzia showed to me the sheer nuance he tried to show us, in terms of Elio’s incremental change from abit of a cheeky punk, to a mature man. Here, Chalamet’s natural, believable interiorising of this growth is perfectly externalised, as he so naturalistically portrays this powerful understanding of Elio’s feelings and his growth into a man, as well as a subtly developed understanding of his actions that have harmed Marzia.

    The final scenes of the film may be the most effective performance wise, Chslamet can portray like 30000 different facets of his character with just his eyes alone, but his naturalism and strive for nuance, as a lot have said, is the most important thing to his skill as a performer.
