And that's that! The 2018 Golden Trousers and completed, finito, dunzo and kaput. I gotta say I am pretty proud of getting them out earlier than usual this time around -- I tried to keep it simpler than in years past, lest I swamp myself dead like that time I decided to post like ninety gratuitous scenes, good grief -- and I hope you've enjoyed our time in these here Pantys together. Feel free to scroll through the entire shebang at this link, or how about I round everything up in succinct list form? Let's do that.

The performances I've seen on this list (the doubles from "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" and "Hereditary"; Nivola, Colman, Hall, and King) are all A++ marvels so adding the others to my viewing list.

Was (my love and future superstar) Haley Lu Richardson close to making your list for Support the Girls?

Both Haley Lu and Shayna McHayle were on my longer list, moviemania101 -- it killed me to leave them off!
