    Looks really on point to me for the order. Just saw Joker and have to say Joaquin Phoenix did a hell of a job with that role. Arguably just as good and powerful as Heath Ledgers. Though the writing for Ledger in the Dark Knight allowed him to show a bit more .. range I guess you could say. Enough for me to say Ledger remains a clear #1 choice.

    Really felt like Joker was the origin story to Nolan's and Ledger's version of the Joker. Which I was a really big fan of. Realistic, gritty and shocking. Both performances felt extremely fleshed out and three dimensional. I like how you have no real idea how the Joker became the Joker in the Dark Knight, but you get a bunch of reasons why he did in the latest 'Joker' film. He was caught in a perfect storm of circumstance, a perfect pressure cooker of nature and nature completely screwing him over.

    The other 5 are good; I've never seen a bad Joker take actually . Not even Leto's. But the only ones that actually stuck with me after the film ends are the performances in the Dark Knight and Joker.

    You got GOT and Chernobyl right. But Fleabag was the surprise win over Veep and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, for best comedy series. I'm not too surprised as I heard the last season of Veep was maybe its weakest season of the whole series. And its already won a ton of awards over its stretch.

    I thought Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was going to win. But I'm biased because I watched that one and thought it was great but haven't watched any of Fleabag yet. I will now though; looks like a good show.

    Anyone watch Fleabag yet? Is it good?

    Since the MTV VMAs are known for being super unpredictable with stars almost expected to do something headline worthy every year, there are a lot of crazy moments from this awards show. What do you think is the craziest moment to ever happen at the MTV Video Music Awards? I have a few obvious choices and an article that gives a list of a ton of other wild moments throughout its history.

    The two most obvious choices in recent history are 2009 and 2003.

    In 2009 Kanye West crashed the stage, interrupting Taylor Swift to give a Beyonce shout-out. This produced about a zillion memes and had Kayne, Beyonce and Swift having to talk about the incident for years.

    In 2003 Britney Spears and Madonna opened the show with a mashup of 'Like a Virgin' and 'Hollywood' with Christina Aguilera. In the performance Britney and Madonna kissed, a choreographed move that was clearly done to elicit strong reaction and controversy. And to sorta relive another crazy moment in MTV VMA history when Madonna sang 'Like a Virgin' in a really provocative way with the award show's debut in 1984.

    Either of these win it for you or do you think there's another more obvious crazier moment at the MTV VMAs? I would say it was Kanye interrupting Taylor Swift.

    Man I hope his next move is a huge TV show. That'd be perfect. Wouldn't be a ramp-down. Probably be more work for him than ever, given how much he puts into his movies. But it would be really cool to see him switch mediums as he is so good at dialog.. imagine how much room and leeway he would have for epic dialog scenes in an episodic show where characters reveal archs over several seasons. Now that I think about it I'd be disappointed if he doesn't give it a try at least.

    Netflix, Amazon, HBO, Disney, Apple, etc would jump at the chance to give him his own show.

    I definitely agree with Saving Private Ryan, Flags of Our Fathers and Black Hawk Down. Excluding those for more variety I'll go with some that are more about a commentary of what war does to a person. These might not all be super respectful to the military throughout but I think they speak to the realities of war and they still showcase the kinds of sacrifices and hardships military men and women go through:

    Hurt Locker

    Platoon

    Apocalypse Now

    Fury

    And for a bit of comedy relief.. Private Benjamin.

    My favorite moment by a slight margin for this show is their #9. I might be in the minority here but the Viper/Mountain fight scene as one of if not the best one-on-one fight scenes ever, in TV or film. So that'd be my #1.

    #2 - I'd go with the Red Wedding for all the reasons you said.

    #3.. Danny speaking her mother tongue. That was really cool and a defining moment for her character.

    #4 - Hodor holds the door.

    #5 - Jon Snow meets the Night King. That was great.

    I would have to watch the show and take notes for a true top ten as I'm sure there are many moments this list left off that I thought should be here. A few that come to mind - Brienne fighting the Hound. Or Arya being chased and then killing the Waif.

    I do agree with Cersei bombing the Sept. That would make the list for me for sure.

    Oh, what about Cersei's 'SHAME' walk?

    Pretty entertaining ACM Awards this year, as you could argue country music is making something of a turnaround. At least to me its showing signs of turning for the better, mainly in the solo acts with Musgraves winning both Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year and Chris Stapleton getting nominated.

    Though I still roll my eyes with the duo groups. Dan + Shay.. just further evidence a ton of country fans are still loving the pop sound that maybe you could argue Rascal Flatts started years ago. But has evolved into something you can't really call country anymore.

    That said, I am happy to see Keith Urban finally win Entertainer of the Year. Was surprised to see it hasn't happened for him until this year to be honest. I would have guessed he would have won it multiple years. I'm a moderate fan of his but he has certainly paid his dues and I think that was really deserving.

    Check out the highlights --

    Idris Elba makes the most sense to me. And my vote goes to Sean Connery. Happy

    Unfortunately I think they will just use the extra time to have more guests doing bits. SO a ton of 60 second hosts... blah. Much rather see longer highlights like you said. Do more tributes even. Celebrate film, not the celebs. Big difference. Either way, looking forward to seeing the effort they give. Should be interesting.
