    Here are mine, what are yours?

    1. Willem Dafoe for The Florida Project. I loved how he used his whole body in his performance. I loved the compassion in his character and the way he expressed it in his performance. He was the glue that pulled this movie together. I love this movie, gave it an A+, and while I loved some other performances more that didn’t get nominated, I still hope he wins.

    2. Richard Jenkins for The Shape Of Water. The shy introverted gay man who finds courage to help a friend was the real surprise for me in this movie. I was quite moved by his performance.

    3. Christopher Plummer for All the Money In The World. Subbing at the last minute for Kevin Spacey, he captured J Paul Getty perfectly and gave a terrific and worthy performance.

    4&5. Woody Harrelson, 3 Billboards; and Sam Rockwell, 3 Billboards. What can I say? I just didn’t enjoy their work.

    Better more deserving performances were delivered by Arnaud Lavois and Armie Hammer. I also really enjoyed performances from Michael Stuhlbarg, Lucas Hedges, Pierre Niney, Ray Romano, and John Lithgow.

    Richard Jenkins is my favorite.

    Dafoe is second, just for that one scene where he drives off the pedophile.

    Rockwell is third.

    Harrelson is last, because I hated those voiceovers.

    Haven’t seen Plummer.

    1. Sam Rockwell, wonderful range and character arc
    2. Christopher Plummer, powerful presence throughout
    3. Woody Harrelson, so much depth in limited role
    4. Willem Dafoe, competent but nothing special
    5. Richard Jenkins, also competent but meh

    This category is a mess.

    1. Richard Jenkins – He delivers a really great and meaningful performance that adds a spectrum of color to his film, and highlights the purest parts of Shape Of Water. His friendship with Elisa is truly beautiful, and he fits well into his film, and gives us a window into his leading actress that we would not have seen without him.

    2. Woody Harrelson – Enhances his film and sets up the plot for the entire purpose of 3 Billboards. Gives a subtle and true performance of a character who we imagine could be real, even if he isn’t all the way realized.

    3. Christopher Plummer – Isn’t truly menacing, but has a presence that enhances his film. Even though the character doesn’t make sense and feels more and more like a plot device, Plummer does enthuse some humanity into his role. But it’s not captivating enough to really motivate people more into his film or particular story to find out more in regards to why or what made him tick. Michelle Williams, Romain Duris and Charlie Plummer have to do his work for him for that.

    4. Sam Rockwell – This man is a clown. Don’t get what people see in this performance in anyway shape or form.

    5. Willem Dafoe – I haven’t seen his performance so I have to put him in last place.

    Hammer, Stan and Elba should have all been nominated over anyone #3 and below.

    Haven’t seen The Shape of Water, yet, so I’ll be ranking the rest.

    1. Sam Rockwell

    Rockwell effectively makes what could have been a caricature a three dimensional human being. A stand out scene is the hospital scene where, even with his face almost entirely under wraps, Rockwell was able to translate Dixon’s emotional state to the audience beautifully.

    2. Willem Dafoe

    Dafoe is brilliant as Bobby. It may not seem like a transformative performance, but it really is. Dafoe honestly brings this well-written character to life, sensitively.

    3. Woody Harrelson

    Harrelson embodies this man of honor and delivers a truthful performance. Even in the voiceovers, Harrelson is achingly emotional and terrific.

    4. Christopher Plummer

    An excellent performance in a bad movie. The film’s sole saving grace, Plummer isn’t working with the greatest material, yet he makes the character seem a lot more interesting than he really is. In his intro scene with the souvenir, Plummer makes you think Getty is a scumbag even when he is doing something nice. This would be a lot higher on the list if the film was actually good, since the film’s quality diminishes the performance.

    4. Dafoe

    Haven’t seen Plummer.

    Wish Hammer was here or Stuhlbarg (but for The Shape of Water, not CMBYN)

    Weakest acting category, in my opinion

    Caleb Landry Jones earns all the credit in that scene.
