|The cast of Spy were hilarious.|
Since the Academy Awards are tonight, I wanted to highlight a category that they don't recognize: best ensemble. Here are my favorites from last year.
10. Mad Max: Fury Road
The actors do a masterful, seamless job of selling the madness.
9. Steve Jobs
Aaron Sorkin’s words allow the cast to deliver bold, captivating portrayals.
8. Maps to the Stars
With a first-rate cast comes bizarre and downright lovable performances.
Devastating performances abound. Simply stunning work.
6. Ex Machina
Essentially a three-hander, so the casting/performances are everything.
5. Magic Mike XXL
They go hard. It’s easy to love these guys and gals.
The jokes only work because of the actors, and everyone’s on fire.
3. The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
They’re all having fun, and it’s contagious.
2. The Stanford Prison Experiment
Exceptional performances from its young cast.
It’s hard to find a standout performance here. Uniformly subdued, but terrific work all around.
