    I will certainly keep my expectations in check. If there's an actual plot and characters who aren't annoying as cluck, it'll be a Masterpiece compared to Licorice Pizza.

    They both should've won. Hawkes was better than anyone in the eventual lineup

    Eww Phoenix winning this. A very good actor who indulges in his worst tendencies here.

    Day-Lewis should be winning this in a landslide. All the biopic/Oscar bait stuff is what people put on it. If you look at the work, it is next-level good: generous, funny, introspective, fiercely intelligent.

    His Lincoln is anemic I'm afraid. The character itself is not very interesting.

    This is Phoenix at his best. People throw out "Brando" left and right and I think what Phoenix achieves here is what that loose term implies to the fullest. It's an intense and potent brew that could spill over at any minute but Phoenix masterfully contains it and the electricity of his performance feels organic, especially in tandem with PSH's performance. A wonderful pas de deux from both.

    Daniel Day-Muni doesn't deserve to be winning this poll or any poll, unless we are talking about The boxer or Gangs of New York.

    Some of y’all are overthinking thsis way too much. The Master has always been Joaquin’s peak, not to mention perhaps the best performance of his contemporaries as well.

    Sad, that Hunt wasn't better than Hathaway.

    Isn't that precisely what he does in almost every movie, including Gangs of New York?

    I'm not defending him, though. He relies a LOT on this "whoops, look, the best actor of your generation is retiring, but not before I'm able to shoot another awards-prestige movie!" bait for his own good (I bet he thought Nine, in retrospect, was such a revolutionary career-movie, lol), but I find him particularly subdued in Phantom Thread.
    Probably perhaps due to the role's introspective nature, but oh well, at least we were spared of his shouts in the end. One of his best performances, nonetheless.

    Funny, that's what I consider Phoenix's work in THE MASTER... and JOKER, two sides of the same coin, really.
