Funniest Performance by a Dramatic Actor

. . . you guessed it:

Playing Field Marshal Georgy Zhukov in The Death of Stalin, Jason Isaacs reveled in what a hilarious wild card an army jock can be in a hellscape of bureaucrats.

Great review. :D

What a shame it wasn't a "proper" award.

I wish Death of Stalin had gotten more attention. It was very funny but sad at the same time considering our current GOP boot licking of a certain President.
