    The inclusion of Melissa McCarthy and Michael B. Jordan and the omission of DiCaprio, Cotillard and Blanchett is enough to call this list a mess.

    DiCaprio and Blanchett are out as they should. If any American actor was snubbed, it’s Natalie Portman.

    Melissa McCarthy and Keanu Reeves being on this list is exceptionally strange.

    I like them, but come on. Really?

    ??? Portman wishes to be half as talented as Blanchett, also how is Denzel better than Izzie 🤧

    24. Sonia Braga

    Really? I still need to watch a good performance of hers. I considered her pretty bad in Aquarius and mediocre in Bacurau. She was a little messy in Kiss of the Spider Woman as well, but that’s from the 80s.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Really? I loved her performance in Aquarius, it was so natural and realistic.

    I thought the exactly opposite. So unnatural and forced. I really, really disliked it.

    McCarthy is a fantastic actress, she just needs to stop making films with her husband.

    Go in blind and if you watch her two oscar nominated performances back-to-back (Bridesheads & Can You Ever Forgive), then she’s arguably one of the most versatile performers working.

    Emmys FYC: Alan Tudyk in “Resident Alien”, Billie Piper in “I Hate Suzie”, Ego Nwodim in “Saturday Night Live”, Kaley Cuoco in “Harley Quinn”

    “Dickinson”, “P-Valley”, “Pose” & “Superstore” in all categories

    What has Keanu Reeves done to be considered one of the best actors?

    I have not seen many of his performances, but he has never been recognized for being an amazing actor.

    Overall, it’s not that bad. However, the inclusion of Keanu Reeves, MBJ, and Melissa McCarthy is ridiculous.

    There are other actors on the list I don’t agree with but I understand why they are there and don’t really mind it.
