Posted on December 27, 2017 at 9:36 pm

It was an honor to have my thoughts on Meryl Streep in “The Post” included in’s annual tribute to some of the most noteworthy performances of the year.   Other highlighted actors include Adam Sandler in “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),”  Harry Dean Stanton in “Lucky,” Rebecca Hall in “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women,” Andy Serkis in “War for the Planet of the Apes,” Tiffany Haddish in “Girls Trip,” and Kyle Mooney in “Brigsby Bear.”
