    Match Cut's "Performance of the 2010s" - A MC Tourney - The FYC Stage

    Simple enough, we need to figure out what the best performance of the decade is...

    But first the brainstorming stage. We need at least 32 performances to advance... Any kind... Movie, TV, lead, supporting, animated...

    Utilize this thread to brainstorm, organize your lists, share your considerations... Debate.

    Coming soon will be the official nomination and bracket page.

    Little Women - *** 1/2
    Gretel & Hansel - **

    Might be a proper FYC post coming later when I thought more about it, but for now right the top off my head, it would be hard to top Marion Cotillard in Two Days, One Night as my favorite of the decade.

    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Just the first half-dozen that come to mind:

    Juliette Binoche, Copie conforme
    Jack Black, Bernie
    Ralph Fiennes, The Grand Budapest Hotel
    Charo Santos-Concia, The Woman Who Left
    Meinhard Neuman, Western
    Tom Mercier, Synonymes
    Just because...
    Portrait de la jeune fille en feu (Céline Sciamma, 2019) mild
    Golden Eighties (Chantal Akerman, 1986) cold
    Till We Meet Again (Kawashima Yuzo, 1955) mild

    The last book I read was...
    Cinema, Censorship, and the State: The Writings of Nagisa Oshima, 1956-1978 by Oshima Nagisa

    The eulogy episode alone is worthy of his nomination.

    That episode even gives grounds to win it all.

    Thanks for including season. Some of these I'm not sure of.

    I'll put together the remaining years for myself and start assembling.
