The Top Ten

1 Hugh Jackman - Logan Hugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, producer and musician . Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters .

I haven't finished Logan yet, but obviously Hugh Jackman gives it his all as his final performance as Wolverine. - Phillip873

2 Tom Holland - Spider Man Homecoming Thomas Stanley "Tom" Holland is an English actor and dancer. Holland is known for playing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and starring in the 2012 film The Impossible. He started his career in 2008 when he played the lead role named Billy Elliot in Billy Elliot The Musical on Broadway in more.

I love this iteration of Spider Man so much. They really cast Tom Holland very well as he really knows how to act like a 15 year old kid who feels like he wants more. I found Spider-Man a way more relatable character due to his performance. - Phillip873

It was great

3 James Franco - The Disaster Artist James Edward Franco is an American actor and filmmaker. His first prominent acting role was the lead character Daniel Desario on the short-lived cult hit television program Freaks and Geeks.

I really want to see the Disaster Artist, but I sadly haven't yet. But I did see a clip of James Franco pretending to be Tommy Wiseau, and I could barely tell it was him! I really need to see this movie because it seems he really just becomes Tommy Wiseau by acting! - Phillip873

4 Gal Gadot - Wonder Woman Gal Gadot Varsano (born 30 April 1985) is an Israeli actress and model. At age 18, she was crowned Miss Israel 2004. Gadot's first international film role came as Gisele Yashar in Fast & Furious (2009), a role she reprised in subsequent installments of the film franchise.

I think Wonder Woman is just "fine", but I really like Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, she really fits the role she was given! - Phillip873

5 Timothée Chalamet - Call Me by Your Name
6 Michael Keaton - The Founder

I really liked the founder, and my favorite part of this movie was Michael Keaton's great performance. He really captures the nature of Ray Kroc, a man who at first wanted to make success, but then became a complete jerk who stole a company. He did everything great! - Phillip873

7 Will Arnett - The Lego Batman Movie

George Oscar Bluth- I - I mean Will Arnett does a really good Batman, and this movie was no exception. He is just as good a Batman as he was in The Lego Movie. - Phillip873

8 Brooklynn Prince - The Florida Project
9 Patrick Stewart - Logan
10 Michael Keaton - Spider Man Homecoming

Michael Keaton makes the list again, as I also loved his performance in Spider-Man Homecoming! He really brings life to the role of Vulture, a villain just trying to provide to his family. - Phillip873

The Contenders

11 Hugh Jackman - The Greatest Showman Hugh Michael Jackman is an Australian actor, producer and musician . Jackman has won international recognition for his roles in major films, notably as superhero, period, and romance characters .

I thought the Greatest Showman was a pretty enjoyable movie I guess, nothing special. But I really thought Hugh Jackman did a really good job as P.T. Barnum, and he really brought a charm to this role. - Phillip873

12 Levi Miller - Better Watch Out
13 James McAvoy - Split

Magneto is playing Cogsworth

Clearly the obvious choice from the sumptuous adaptation of Beauty & the Beast. Sorry Emma Watson but I didn't believe you as Belle in the way I would have believed Dakota Blue Richards for example.

17 Sally Hawkins - The Shape of Water
18 Kurt Russell - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Kurt Vogel Russell is an American actor. He began acting on television at the age of 12 in the western series The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters.

Kurt Russell did a very fine job playing Ego, Peter Quill's father and villain. He did a great job in terms of performance in general. - Phillip873

He is best known for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy – Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi and his portrayal of the Joker in Batman: the Animated Series.
