    see ya

    I also don't put DiCaprio at that high of a level, but I know that's a hot take.

    I was walking with a ghost Supporter

    I agree, I can only see him as Leo

    Sean Penn and Ed Norton are the best actors, maybe Michael Shannon, who isn't a dick like Sean or Ed

    Denzel is one of those actors that can make a sub par movie great. He deserves all the credit for always bringing it.

    Phoenix, Bale, Leo would be a solid top 3 (in no particular order) as far as men go (DDL obviously tops the list if he was to come out of retirement). Personally a big fan of Gyllenhaal and Gosling as well, and Gary Oldman is still bringing it at a high level even though he’s in a different age bracket then the guys we’re discussing

    Lupita Nyong’o, Greta Gerwig, Viola Davis, Cate Blanchett, Michael B. Jordan, Joaquin, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jared Harris, Denzel, Michael Shannon, there are plenty of GOATS working today

    I know he just started working but I’m already a huge Chalamet fan

    My group of cinema friends call Chalamet “Young Daniel-Day” lol

    Chalamet has been great.

    People overrate pretty white guys. I love Gosling and Leo, they’re super good, but there are actors who consistently and more completely express something deeper than what they’re usually able to do.

    Chalamet, Michael B Jordan and Phoenix are in my “watch anything they’re in” camp.

    Denzel’s performance in Fences alone cements him at a higher level than 95% of the other male actors currently working

    Denzel’s jaw was packed from all the scenery he was chewing in that movie

    thank u, next Prestigious

    The way that I watch movies, I could never compare actors in any meaningful, nuanced way. All I know is who I like watching on screen the most. And, right now, my favorite is Tessa Thompson.

    Also on team “Leo isn’t GOAT”

    It’s already been said but at Leo’s absolute peak performance you still just see Leo. The other actors mentioned can get lost in their characters in a way Leo just doesn’t

    Leo is just Tom Hanks that takes edgier roles. Both consistent and good, but nothing amazing.

    Take arms, it'll all blow over Prestigious

    I know it's a common complaint, but Leo got his Oscar for the wrong movie... his Wolf performance is definitely his best.

    I'll swear by Gosling still though, think he has a better range than he gets credit for.

    I love Denzel but he doesn't do that many good movies anymore.

    I think acting is one of the most misunderstood and misread aspects of film, since it’s usually the most obvious

    I think Mahershala Ali is in the discussion

    I'm a pretty big Leo fan, but I honestly think a lot of people are confusing him turning out to be a much better actor than people probably expected him to be with him being the greatest working actor. I love watching him and him being in a project will definitely sway me to watching if I'm on the fence, but I don't even think he's in the conversation as far as greatest working actors go.

    Talking movie star though, he's the shit .

    DiCaprio is excellent most of the time, but he’s very pretty and famous and I think a lot of people think energized yelling is good acting
