    Let’s be real. Lady Gaga deserved the Oscar for Best Actress and, of course, she should have been in the Top 10.

    To be honest, this list doesn’t show the best acting performances of the decade. So disappointing.

    This is the stupidest list I have ever seen in my entire life.

    Mahershala Ali is the least deserved Oscar winner of all time for Moonlight. That performance is nothing, NOTHING. Paris Hilton would have been able to do it.

    Same for Yalitza Aparicio for Roma. BORING.

    Saoirse Ronan was better in Brooklyn. Just okay in Lady Bird.

    Where’s mother fu***** Amy Adams for at least The Master or Arrival?!

    Lupita Nyongo is overrated as fu**.

    Cate Blanchette was better in Blue Jasmine than Carol.

    Jennifer Lawrence’s performance in Winter’s Bones and mother! was better than 3/4 of this list.

    Olivia Colman in the Favourite is just simply incredible.

    Sandra Bullock in Gravity. How can they missed it?!

    Bradley Cooper for A Star is born.

    Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler.

    Emily Blunt in A Quiet Place.

    Natalie Portman for Black Swan.

    The list goes on and on.

    James Franco? Tiffany Haddish? Kirsten Stewart? They were drunk.

    So glad to see Lupita Nyong’o from 12 Years A Slave in the top 10!!

    I love her but Ejiofor would’ve been a worthier choice from the same film. Back in 2013-14 I never understood why Lupita was often the one singled out before him; yes they were in different categories and she deserved to win, but still.

    And to echo other thoughts in this thread, yeah this list is a mess, but it’s clear Indiewire has no internal consistency as back in December it ranked Olivia Colman as the best female performance of 2018. Now apparently Yalitza Aparicio, Regina Hall, Helena Howard and Lady Gaga (?!) were better than her.

    No Joaquin in The Master? Not even Rooney Mara made it to the list. This is a joke.

    They seem to have a one-performance-per-film rule, though for the top two spots it would’ve been more apt to recognise the two leads from The Master and Carol as a unit.

    Glenn Close for her tour de force performance in The Wife. This list is just not good.

    Darling, I have to laugh. Bore didn’t even deserve the nod. Supporting Colman outacted.

    I was your Prime Minister once.

    I’m sorry but Ben Affleck’s bland ass Batman a spot higher than Isabelle Huppert is sending. Don’t even get me started on Jack Black in “Jumanji” and Will Ferrell in “Megamind”… like you got to be seriously trolling cause otherwise you have horrible standards.
