Not only a ranking of some of the best and most memorable acting of this decade (so much so it often feels unfair to compare a biopic performance to an original character, and Oscar bias makes that clear), but also an interesting snapshot at whom we commemorate.
Well the first 3 of these pics are from HBO but who can deny this is the GOAT's area of mastery in the 2010s. I'm not saying he's the actor of the 2010s .........but he's the biopic actor of the 2010s.
Some other mentions Rockwell/Williams in Fosse/Verdon (sorry another TV), Jason Clarke as Teddy Kennedy in Chappaquidick, Edgar Ramírez in Carlos.
