This is the time of year when writers, directors, actors, and even lowly film critics get inundated with screeners, meaning DVDs of this year’s most buzzed about movies. It’s so we can vote in our various guilds for award honors. And it means this is the time of year when we get to see celebrities geek out about their favorite movies of the year. Like who knew the Rock was so into docs?

Documentarian Errol Morris was stunned to see Dwayne Johnson might have been checking out Wormwood, his 6-part documentary about a top-secret experiment that ended in a grim death.

He was.

In 2010, Duncan Jones won the BAFTA for Outstanding Debut for a British Director for Moon. Now, he’s voting for Jordan Peele’s debut Get Out. But in which categories!?

Barry Jenkins, director of Best Picture winner Moonlight, showed love for Call Me By Your Name.

Big Fish screenwriter John August used Lady Bird as a teachable moment or three.

RuPaul gave a shout out to “Sir Shaw” Ronan and company.

James Mangold, who helmed the lauded Logan, went gaga over Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water.

Ocean’s 8’s Mindy Kaling is also a fan, particularly of Michael Shannon’s scowling baddie.

Russell Crowe, who you might remember head-butted Colin Farrell off the Brooklyn Bridge in Winter’s Tale, loves James Franco’s comedy about the making of The Room. Forever on brand.

Thor: Ragnarok’s Mark Ruffalo loved The Last Jedi.

On the other hand, Keanu director Peter Atencio has a serious question about Alexander Payne’s Downsizing. And we get it. We really do.
