Variety is pleased to announce its annual list of 10 Actors to Watch, an honor the publication has bestowed since 1998.

Past honorees include many future Oscar winners and nominees, such as Mahershala Ali, Timothée Chalamet, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Brie Larson, Lupita Nyong’o, and Melissa Leo.

Year - Honorees - Nov - Issue - Variety

This year’s honorees will be feted in the Nov. 6 issue of Variety, as well as at a reception Nov. 11 at the Resort at Pelican Hill in conjunction with Visit Newport Beach and the Newport Beach Film Festival. In addition to the 10 Actors to Watch, the Newport Beach Film Festival will also bestow industry honors.

“Visit Newport Beach and the Newport Beach Film Festival have been proud to partner with Variety over the past five years to host their 10 Cinematographers and 10 Brits to Watch. Adding a third celebration further solidifies our strong partnership and shared support of and love for great films and the talent that brings those films to life,” said Gregg Schwenk, president and CEO of the Newport Beach Film Festival. “Additionally, it’s serendipitous timing that the next installment of the 10 Actors to Watch is its 20th anniversary and coincides with the kick-off of Newport Beach Film Festival’s year-long celebration of its own 20th anniversary.”

Steven Gaydos, Variety vice president, executive editor added: “If the rich array of emerging acting talents in this year’s films is any indication, the 2018 Awards Season looks to be one of the strongest line-ups in recent memory. Particularly encouraging is the number of Hollywood Studio films that are already in the mix, but the 2018 edition of Variety 10 Actors to Watch also benefits from breakout performances in edgy, smart blockbusters as well as intimate American independent features and powerful foreign language productions.”
