Dear Gossips,

The American Film Institute (AFI) released its Top 10 of 2017 yesterday.

Robert Pattinson gave his best performance to date this year in Good Time. He’s gotten a Gotham Award nomination for it, and an Independent Spirit Award nod, too. People have noticed him doing Good Work this year (he also gave a solid performance in James Grey’s Lost City of Z). Full Story

Dear Gossips,
