Pantys '19: Performers, Part One -- Actors

Every so often for my Golden Trousers awards I do something I call "Actor to Actor" where I write small scenes up of interaction between one of my favorite actors of the year and one of my favorite actresses of the year. Well I am not doing that this year. This year I'm just going to post my 10 favorites, with 10 runners-up. Keeping it simple! And so here, in no particular order and beginning with the men...

I think Rogowski and Tom Burke would be my picks for best of the year. Other favorites - Banderas, Hopkins, Chalamet, in awards contenders, and beyond that set: Daniel Craig, Noah Segan, and Don Johnson in Knives Out, Adam Brody in Ready or Not, Andrew Scott in 1917, and Kyle MacLachlan in Giant Little Ones. Oh and I liked Pattinson a lot this year but I preferred him in High Life.
