Here we can find Andrew Garfield with the exceptional role from the Hacksaw Ridge, Casey Affleck from Manchester by the Sea, Viggo Mortensen, Joel Edgerton and one of my favorite actors Denzel Washington that prove one more that he is one of the greatest actors alive. All of them did a great job and we look forward to seeing who will get the Globe.
