    Here are mine, what are yours?

    1. Timothee Chalamet for Call Me By Your Name. This performance was for me the most moving of 2017. Subtle, doubtful, lusty, insecure, intense, brash, shy – it’s all there. I am looking forward to his work in the future.

    2. Daniel Day-Lewis for Phantom Thread. Fascinating if a bit cold, I still liked his performance better than Oldman’s.

    3. Gary Oldman for Darkest Hour. A technically proficient excellent performance but it failed to move me. It isn’t a bad or unworthy performance, just not one that I think deserves to win.

    4. Daniel Kaluuya for Get Out. I just didn’t like this movie very much and didn’t feel he delivered an awards-worthy performance.

    (I haven’t seen Denzel Washington’s performance in Roman Israel, Esq.)

    I am disappointed that Jake Gyllenhaal wasn’t nominated for his superb performance in Stronger ):

    I have not seen Denzel or Day-Lewis, unfortunately. Of the three I have seen, it’s Chalamet, followed by Oldman, then Kaluuya.

    Haven’t seen Denzel.

    Chalamet and DDL would both make great winners but Oldman will win. It’s a good performance but it’s just not one of the very best of the year. Oldman needs an Oscar, but I wish it was for something else.

    1. Timothée Chalamet, easily the year’s greatest revelation
    2. Daniel Day-Lewis, refreshingly internalized performance
    3. Gary Oldman, boring but he’s one of the best actors
    4. Daniel Kaluuya, just yelled “ROSE!” and tear pen
    5. Denzel Washington, better than his performance as gracious loser last year and probably this year when he cries and pouts again

    1. Oldman – The hardest role of the set and the hardest personality to make real. The entire film is filled with grandiose speeches and words that no one else has to memorize or make honest. Every word and action is well performed, and without Oldman’s performance the entire film could fall in on itself. His role is even harder for having to play a true person, that is considered to be one of the finest figures in recent history.

    2. Chamalet – Enthuses sensitivity, vulnerability, honesty and truth into the experience of millions of individual people all across the world. There is never a dishonest note in his performance. You see him even in the smallest gestures. A true naturalist performance.

    3. Day-Lewis – Tries extremely hard to reach highs but the screenplay for his film is utter nonsense. Is an extension of his film but not apart of it, as such he doesn’t feel very consequential. Doesn’t tip the scales or the axis’s of emotional turbulence and investment that is needed to give his performance more of a consequence. Very contained performance that feels notably separate from both his films and that of his co-stars. As such the films ends feel different from that of his character, and as such his performance.

    4. Kaluuya – Standard performance needed for his film. Never elevates or moves the material levels above what is needed. Firmly plot centric, and plot driven performance. Doesn’t invest any further than what is needed. Doesn’t dig deeper than what the script provides him with.

    5. Washington – I haven’t seen the film, so I have to place him last.

    Haven’t seen Washington or Day-Lewis.  If I’d known Franco was gonna be snubbed I wouldn’t have wasted my money on his movie, which was just good, not great.
