Sicario. I loved it! It has an incredible ensemble. And the 15-minute convoy scene, when they go to Mexico and bring the drug dealer back across the border — to make a scene that exciting is a feat in and of itself.
The Revenant had a profound effect on me. I found myself in a depressed state after, because those heights of filmmaking ambition seem unobtainable. Yet at the same time, incredibly inspiring. James White also impressed me beyond words.
Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back. It's just so amazing to see her in such a different way. I related to it, and the role she played — it was captivating. She was incredible.
Amy Schumer. She's kind of brought it big-time: Trainwreck, her TV show Inside Amy Schumer, her stand-up thing. That was the first thing that came to mind: how much she brought to the world this year.
I'm in love with Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation. I think it's such an extraordinary film — really brave — and it's so great for Netflix, having that movie.
Jennifer Jason Leigh
I saw Room and really loved that movie. I loved Brie Larson's performance, and the little boy [Jacob Tremblay] just broke my heart.
Rami Malek from Mr. Robot. From the start, I was just like, "I know that guy from somewhere, but oh my God, who is he and what is he doing?" A magnetic performance. Also, Andy Daly on [Comedy Central's] Review. He creates, writes and stars in it. It is off-the-charts unbelievable.
Ruth Wilson in The Affair is incredible. She has to play her character from her perspective, [Dominic West's] perspective, [Maura Tierney's] perspective and Joshua Jackson's perspective. And she's so intricate with the performances. As an actor, she's knocking it out of the park.
I saw Spotlight and I was just blown away by it. The Boston Globe was our local paper [growing up], so that was exciting. It was written perfectly and told beautifully, and every performance was astonishing. I just really loved it.
I loved the movie The Age of Adeline with Blake Lively. That one really tore me up. It was beautiful. I love her. I can't stop looking at her — she's so pretty — and she did a really great job.
