A STAR IS BORN
The proposal. Sweet and dreamy but grounded humorously by all that damn luggage. "Do you think I should leave early?" No, Esti. No. So intimate. So tactile. So superbly acted! And to think it begins with vomiting where you think a kiss would be. Then a series of funny, sweet, weird, alien-mating ritual liplocks. Ferris wheel climax. The dream boyfriend arriving in the nth hour. He's not disappointed at all. So much nuzzling adoration. May Cooper & Gaga find another reason to co-star.

TULLY
Unforgettable in its shocking specificity of self discovery and animalistic passion Torrid reunion sex. Their made-for-and-bad-for-each-other eroticism is fully realized by the actors. So steamy. Character-driven, rushed, and ultra erotic... They've been waiting for years and they're all grown up now. Two parents getting frisky when they're surprised to find themselves alone at "home". But oops, spoke too soon. Perhaps too implied to register fully as a sex scene but so smart, naughty, and character-driven "I'll show you what he likes" that we had to include it.

Finalists: Abraham Lewis, Marina Bye, and Ross Tomlinson "Release. Merge. Let Go. Ascend" bisexual self-discovery in How to Talk to Girls at Parties Transactional hotness from Elizabeth Debicki & Lukas Haas in Widows, Yoo Ah-in overwhelmed by Jun Jong-Seo's aggressiveness in Burning.
