Loved Joaquin Phoenix in Joker but my favorite performance this year was Adam Driver in Marriage Story. He will win later for a much lesser performance.

Rejoice #SouthKorea ????????????????
Rest of Asia, be inspired ????????????????#parasite was brilliant
I’m usually very good at picking plot twists before they happen, did it in Shyamalan’s ‘Sixth Sense’ halfway thru the film but this blew me away
