Affleck but just as easily could choose Mortensen. Washington did not ring true whatsoever to me, instead I felt his performance was ham cut straight from the bone. If only James Earl Jones had gotten the chance earlier.
1. Casey Affleck, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA
2. Viggo Mortensen, CAPTAIN FANTASTIC
3. Andrew Garfield, HACKSAW RIDGE
4. Ryan Gosling, LA LA LAND
5. Denzel Washington, FENCES
