Joaquin Phoenix
You Were Never Really Here, Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot, The Sisters Brothers
Best Actor

Pick one of Joaquin's amazing performances this year. You can't go wrong. They're all awards-worthy. His inner turmoil as a damaged assassin in You Were Never Really Here makes him a live wire. His turn as a disabled, alcoholic cartoonist in Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot is honest and deeply funny. And his daring turn as one of the title characters in The Sisters Brothers is more proof of Phoenix's chameleon-like prowess onscreen. He is our greatest actor. He belongs at the Oscars every year.
