    Those brave enough to predict The Lighthouse elsewhere should seriously consider Pattinson in this category:

    ‘Pattinson gives a performance of such audacity and muscle that he recalls Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood.’
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/lighthouse-review-film-will-make-head-soul-ring/

    ‘Forget Batman: Robert Pattinson proves himself once more to be a fearless character actor who brings a layered understanding to Winslow and does not hold back when the shit almost literally hits the fan.’
    https://cine-vue.com/2019/05/cannes-2019-the-lighthouse-review.html

    ‘Pattinson spends the first half sulking around, his eyes darting every which way as he attempts to make sense of his dreary surroundings. But when the material calls for him to unleash his fury, his eyes bulge and his body quakes in a pure show of physical intensity. It’s the sort of showboating the actor tends to avoid, but this histrionic material gives him the ideal excuse to lash out, and with winning results.’
    https://www.indiewire.com/2019/05/the-lighthouse-review-robert-pattinson-cannes-2019-1202142861/

    ‘[…] when [Pattinson] spits out a speech about how sick he is of listening to the old man, it’s the most ferocious acting of Pattinson’s career […] As the movie goes on, his eyes begin to burn in their sockets.’
    https://variety.com/2019/film/reviews/the-lighthouse-review-robert-pattinson-willem-dafoe-1203220127/

    ‘Pattinson portrays with deep seeded frustration below the surface until he slowly reaches a passionate roar. The 33-year-old actor has simply never been this raw on screen before. There are moments where Pattinson is so transformative it’s jarring. You simply never thought he had it in him.’

    I love the Michael B Jordan mentions. Oh lord, let it happen. Taron Egerton too.

    The others are simply the usual suspects. Nothing new or interesting

    Taron Egerton (Rocketman) for best actor. Charlize Theron looks great in Bombshell teaser

    I would rather see”deserving” nominees than “new and interesting”.

    I’m sorry but what? DiCaprio deserves a RAZZIE award for his poor performance in OUATIH. Boy, do I ever disagree with this one! He is truly awful in this movie! Sure hoping calmer minds prevail and much better performances show up to knock him out of any contention for any awards this year!

    Since you stanned Rami Malek teeth and constantly surprised looking constipated face in BO Rap,I will gather you know nothing about acting and performances.I am sorry but dude Leo’s performance yet again has been top notch and critics and audiences even those who hated the movie praised him,some even called it his all time best.You really know nothing about acting or just pretends perhaps.See Leo earning bundles of nominations next year.

    Darlings, DiCaprio isn’t winning anything for Once and Always Trash in Hollywood. The hype will die in a month. He will get a nod for the Globes and that’s it. That’s what he deserves based on his average performance playing himself. Brad Pitt was annoying and ridiculously overacted. Annoying as hell. The only good thing was Margot Robbie, who deserves to win the Oscar based on the cinema scene alone. The rest of the aspects of the movie are disgusting.
