Very happy with this lineup anyway. 7 of my top 10 in here (Sandler, Pattinson, Dafoe, MacKay, Diehl, Davis, De Niro), Harrison and Paul just outside of it, and LaBeouf is in my top 10 for supporting (whose placement I'll decide again on a re-watch).
I'm very happy with the lineup.
I hope we'll get all fives with this one.
I hope Louis reviews Paul first.
Tahmeed: It'll be Harrison and Paul since he re-watched both first durng the supporting lineup.

Hey Louis and who read this comment of mine! Tell the Overall Rankings for lead actress and supporting actress of 2019.
1. Pattinson2. Sandler3. MacKay4. Diehl5. Harrison1. Dafoe2. De Niro3. Davis4. Paul5. LaBeouf
Brazinterma: Wait until the Lead Actor results, because he still has Samara Weaving in Ready Or Not, Alfre Woodard in Clemency and Elisabeth Moss in Her Smell to watch.
Brazinterma: He’ll reveal them in the lead actor results.
Louis: Are you going to watch Monos, The Dead Don't Die, Sorry We Missed You, Ophelia, Long Shot and Good Boys during Lead.
Luke and CalvinMy question was not only directed at Louis. My question is also valid for you and others.
Brazinterma: Calvin will be revealing his on his blog while there's still quite a few I need to see first.
Luke, on the whole, are you more excited for this year's lineup than last year.
1)Sandler2)Pattinson 3)MacKay4)Diehl5)Harrison Jr.1)De Niro2)Dafoe3)Davis4)Paul5)LaBeouf
Brazinterma: I'm in the same position as Luke in that there's many performances I need to see myself. As of right now, I'll say that for leading, Johansson (5), Ronan (5), Nyong'o (5) and de Armas (4.5) are easily my top 4 thus far. My least favourite would be Larson in "Captain Marvel" (2.5), though even she's not outright terrible so much as uneven and miscast.
Luke: With those films you mentioned, how about “Official Secrets” as well?
Bryan: Yeah sure. :)

Brazinterma: Here’s my Top Five for each right nowBest Actress (in order): Saoirse Ronan, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Felicity Jones, Ana de ArmasBest Supporting Actress: Florence Pugh, Park So-Dam, Cho Yeo-Jong, Zhao Shuzhen, Scarlett Johansson (JoJo Rabbit)
This line-up is stacked, boys.1. Pattinson2. Sandler3. Diehl4. McKay5. Harrison1. Dafoe2. De Niro3. Paul4. Davis5. Labeouf
Emi Grant: We've been spoiled rotten this past decade. Louis has given at least 8 fives in Lead Actor since 2011.
Brazinterma: Here's the closest I can get to one right now.Lead Actress:1. Scarlett Johansson - Marriage Story2. Lupita N'yongo - Us3. Ana De Armas - Knives Out (5)4. Awkwafina - The Farewell (4.5)5. Kaitlyn Dever - Booksmart6. Florence Pugh - Midsommar (4)7. Charlize Theron - Long Shot8. Beanie Feldstein - Booksmart (3.5)Supporting Actress:1. Park So-Dam - Parasite (5)2. Zhao Shuzen - The Farewell (4.5) 3. Scarlett Johansson - Jojo Rabbit4. Lee Jung-eun - Parasite5. Thomasin McKenzie - Jojo Rabbit6. Cho Yeo-Jeong - Parasite7. Chang Hyae-jin - Parasite (4)8. Imogen Poots - The Art of Self Defense 9. Jessica Chastain - It: Chapter 210. Julia Butters - Once Upon a Time in Hollywood11. Scarlett Johansson - Avengers: Endgame12. Jeong Ji-so - Parasite (3.5)
Luke: Well, to be fair, we technically couldn't have been spoiled rotten any other decade...How many 5s do you predict for Lead Actor?
Emi Grant: I'll play it safe and go with 11, the one I'm not too sure about is Harrison Jr.
Emi: I'd give Theron a 4 for Long Shot as well.Has anyone here seen "Her Smell"? If so, rating for Elisabeth Moss? I'd give her a 4.5. The films' kind of uneven, but definitely worth watching for her. Plus, I'm leaning towards giving "Breathe" my Best Song win.
Louis: Do check out Ready Or Not and Her Smell. Clemency if it's up before you finish.
1. Pattinson2. Sandler3. MacKay4. Diehl5. Harrison Jr.1. Dafoe2. De Niro3. Paul4. Davis5. LaBeoufLouis: could you watch those movies during the Alternate Lead round?- Martin Eden (an interesting adaption from Jack London’s novel, gorgeous 16mm cinematography and Luca Marinelli is terrific in the leading role, a 5 for me)- Little Joe- Il Traditore- Dirty God- Zombi Child (a weird mix between Lynch and Torenur’s I Walk with a Zombie, the movie doesn’t always work but there are some interesting ideas and scenes)
By the way, has anyone counted all of Louis' female lead 5's this year? If I'm not mistaken, it's Johansson (Marriage Story)Nyong'oPachnerDe Armas Jones Franciosi RonanBuckleyRussellWhich makes it 9. Which makes it one of the strongest years I think (hoping for a possible Awkwafina upgrade but I'll probably just stick with hoping that Zhao will take the Supporting win).
Is Franciosi definitely 2019 though? It doesn’t look like Louis has made a ruling on that and IMDb seems to indicate it’d be 2018 by his rules.
Michael: it’s up in the air but you’re right, could easily be 2018.
1. Sandler2. Pattinson3. MacKay4. Diehl5. Harrison1. Dafoe2. De Niro3. Davis4. Paul5. LaBeouf
Michael: There's no concrete information on that and it doesn't make sense to me why it may've had a one city release before Australia.

Very good Bryan, Emi, Brazilian Cinema and Robert!I just wanted to know more about everyone's opinions
Louis: your thoughts on this McDonalds ad starring Jason Alexander? (And yeah I’m definitely going to start on Seinfeld after this awards season) https://youtu.be/Eh1kmVwS4Hw
Calvin: The first two seasons are kind of shaky, but have their moments. Season 3 onwards though...have fun!
Saw David Copperfield. Patel and Laurie are the standouts (4.5s).
Luke: What about Swinton? All three of them could go up to 5’s for me. And your ratings for Whishaw, and Capaldi.
Calvin: 4/4.5, my favourite portrayal was Maggie Smith from the Daniel Radcliffe version. My favourite scenes were those with Patel and Laurie & 3.5s for Whishaw and Capaldi.
That being said it was pretty enjoyable and thankfully the light comedic elements really allowed David Copperfield to breathe more as a character.
1. Sandler2. Pattinson3. MacKay4. Harrison Jr.5. Diehl1. Dafoe2. De Niro3. Paul4. Davis5. LaBeoufI'll save my personal Lead/Supporting Actress rankings for later. Want to be mostly sure about them before I post them.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Sandler takes the overall.
I wouldn't exactly call it going out on a limb since it's a very real possibility though I personally am hoping for a Dafoe win but I'll have no misgivings with who Louis chooses anyway.
Matt: I too could see him taking it, honestly.
My money is on Pattinson
Luke:Egerton - 4.5(It's a good performance from him that hits creating both a biopic performance and really a musical lead. Egerton's delivers on the flamboyance of Elton John without going over the top in this depiction of it. This though also thriving in playing up the showman aspects of the character in the musical numbers to great effect. Although Rocketman hits familiar beats, just hits them better than most of the musician biopics of its ilk, Egerton does definitely deliver on these beats. These from the moments of inspirational energy in the inception of the talent, to the frustrations of the personal lows that he realizes here with certainly limited depth given the material, but never truly perfunctory. It's a very good performance that delivers beyond its trappings enough, while also thriving in the additional element of the film truly embracing itself as a musical.)Bale - 4.5(Bale's performance is interesting in that it is a different side of him, in that he delivers a far more broad performance than we are typically used to. This is indeed in service that is opposed to the historical record of the man he's playing, who was more of the refined British mechanic you might've expected, but Bale's performance works as the perpetual hot head type. This as he delivers far more charisma than is usually the case for himself and he manages to wield it here well in portraying the sort of spare no fools delivery of his. This portraying the certain powerful ego of a man who knows he's in the right, and technically is, however makes no friends in the process. It's a fun and entertaining work, that I think is most notable in that he re-works his traditional intensity into this form of charm, that has never been a strength of his.)Harrison Jr. - 4(I have to say this is a performance that teeters on becoming terrible in its whole design, although I appreciate the ambition of Harrison's work that is of a true talent. Harrison's work here though is interesting in portraying this sort of line on whether or not his character is a the perfect student or a borderline sociopath. Harrison's work is overt from this, however it does work in creating this sort of question mark, that manages to be off-putting in a rather precise way, however not entirely unemotional within this. It's definitely an interesting turn, though I do think the film had toned down its own broad approach to revealing its themes it would have benefited Harrison's work, as this requires him to be rather overt all the time limiting him somewhat.)
Mullan - 4.5(The film itself, again, doesn't do enough in the potential that exists within its third act that falls far short of Treasure of Sierra Madre which it obviously inspires to be. Mullan though is terrific in his role in capturing his traditional emotional intensity, however doing so in a unique way here. This in portraying in a more affable way, this creating the sense of the hardness of his character but as it pertains to a man who has suffered losses however hasn't become cruel through it. He's quite powerful in portraying the moments of real grief within the moments of reflecting on what happens from the situation, and takes the film deeper than it is otherwise. I wish the film had let the scenario play out a little more dramatically as what Mullan does is great, it just diminishes his work somewhat by how swift it all is.)Majors - 4(Okay this is one where I guess I'm just not as positive as most. Although then again after just a bit of time after watching the film, I barely remember it, as really one of some style that attempts substance but never really finds it for my money. Majors does give a curiously humorous and engaging performance however. This in portraying his more emotional reflections against the more stoic lead, and does definitely find a lot caricature often just being part of scenes. He makes a greater impression in his major performance scene that he throws himself fully into and certainly pays off to an extent in sort of an explosion of overt emotion. It is a good performance, though like the film, it hasn't left any lasting impression overall however.)Kaluuya - 4(The more I think about the film itself, I find that it is a whole lot wasted potential due to the underwhelming screenplay. Kaluuya is part of this as he once again delivers some low key charisma. He offers something interesting in portraying the weight of the situation initially in a man who had no such designs ever in his life. His portrayal of sort of the reality of it is very compelling initially this as a man who never intended to stand for anything in particular. Sadly this idea is kind of lost very quickly, despite some terrific early interactions between him and Turner-Smith. This where their opposed philosophies find something, however this gets lost, and really so does their chemistry really which never becomes sort of the fiery chemistry that was really needed for the story. They're not bad together, but they cannot make the scenes of the two going on dates basically when they should be on the run, not seem extremely stupid. This is definitely a performance that showed potential of the role and film, however the writing just isn't there for him to take off with it.)Schoenaerts - 4.5(I'll admit it was a tough cut, and would've been my 11. Although I have reviewed him for two other variations of a man of quiet intensity, so I didn't feel too badly, and I definitely felt this was the worst film, though the film is decent, out of them. This as it is one that introduces more interesting ideas than it fully explores limiting Schoenaerts a bit, though not a lot, since he's a great actor. Schoenaerts continues his list of impressive accents once again and disappears in this violent westerner to be sure. He's terrific again in portraying pent up rage, though doesn't quite hit the heights of Bullhead, he's not that far off. His portrayal of the character's breaking rage and grief in his moments with his daughter are truly heartbreaking. His final sequence of explaining his crime is a knock out moment for Schoenaerts as he offers the real emotional turmoil of it, and is incredibly powerful in that moment. It is unquestionably a striking turn from him, as per usual when he has a leading role, and hopefully he gets another one soon.)I am reviewing Jupe with LaBeouf, just didn't want only one double picture.
Anonymous:That would make the most sense. Calvin:I mean never have I been more impressed by the level of enthusiasm to a terrible idea, I mean seriously who has ever complained of their tomatoes, lettuce or onions being "too hot" on a burger, or cooled by the vegetables. What if I want my cheese melted, a truly baffling idea I must say.
Luke & Omar:I will do my best to try to watch those as well.
Very relieved that Egerton and Bale are 4.5’s.
Well I guess there's no need to request Mullan in future. I'm happy you're reviewing Jupe.
