Rather a tedious bore having to constantly read folks relating someone's sexual kinks impacting another person's "performance". There is no co-relation whatsoever. Or is there? Malek may not have given the performance of the year but he did have a lot of other stuff to do in the film besides strutting or lip synching. Rather unfair to judge his "performance" (which was pretty good overall) just on his lip synching, bad reviews of the "film" and whatever the stupid director did in his off-duty hours.
So you agree with me. I'll ignore the creepy euphemisms ("kinks"?) and non-sequitur Jessica Lange reference.
Agree with you? Not really if you think Cooper was better than Malek.
My favourite male performances of the year:
1. Ethan Hawke, First Reformed
2. Joaquin Phoenix, You Were Never Really Here
3. Ryan Gosling, First Man
4. Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody
5. Rupert Everett, The Happy Prince
