Rob Pattinson’s film career has been an absolute whirlwind. Not only has he been nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars, but he has also had the opportunity to work with some of the greatest directors in the business. However, what may be most surprising is that he has only released 6 movies so far. In this article, we will take a look at Pattinson’s best movies as voted on by you, the reader. We will begin with his nominations and then move on to discuss the merits of each of the movies.

Rob Pattinson’s Best Movies Reddit Nominations

As mentioned, Rob has been nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars 3 times so far and has won twice. The first of those nominations was for his performance in the film The Lost City. He shared the screen with Oscar-nominee Willem Dafoe and director Ang Lee. Sadly, he lost the award to Johnny Depp for his performance in The Rum Diary. Nevertheless, he proved critics and audiences wrong with his second Best Actor nod, this time for his role in The High Sun. The film marked a turning point for Rob, as it was the first time that he worked in a truly independent fashion. Directed by James Gray and starring opposite Alicia Vikadal, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Julianne Moore, The High Sun is an adaptation of the Fyodor Dostoyevsky novel of the same name. The film was a critical and commercial success, leading to several more high-profile projects for Pattinson. He then went on to win his second Best Actor Academy Award for his role in Water for Elephants. Finally, he nabbed his third Best Actor nomination for his performance in The Rover. Once again, he was up against some stiff competition, this time from George Clooney for his role in The Descendants. Despite losing out on the award, Rob proved he was still the best with his best friend Jason Beard winning the Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.

Rob’s Next Move Was The Dark Knight

With his stellar track record and steady stream of Oscar nominations, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came knocking. Indeed, just two months after winning his third Best Actor Award, Rob signed on to play the iconic villain Mr. Freeze in the Batman film. The role was arguably one of the most prominent of his career. It required him to wear a thick costume and makeup, which took him around 18 hours to complete. Unfortunately, even this seemingly effortless transformation couldn’t save the film. The reviews were mixed, with many critics panning it and calling it the worst Batman film yet. Many fans however, still hold out hope that it could turn out to be the best of the series. Nevertheless, in 2016, Rob returned to the big screen in Dunkirk. Here, we were granted a glimpse of the actor’s softer side, as he played a British soldier stranded in Holland who has to make his way home across enemy lines. Critics praised his performance, singling out his ability to convey toughness and fragility. His work in Dunkirk earned him his fourth Best Actor nomination, this time for his role in Netflix’s upcoming horror series The Twilight Zone. In that same year, he also starred in the sci-fi romance Always Be My Baby. It marked the second time that he had worked with director Marc Forster, after the two previously collaborated on the 2014 psychological thriller Imaginarium. This time around they teamed up to create an E.T.-style tale about a middle-aged man who finds his perfect companion at last. Unfortunately, 2019 proved to be a turning point in Rob’s career. The actor split from his wife Bella in late 2018 and began pursuing other opportunities. One of the first gigs to come his way was starring in the thriller Just Mercy, followed by a smaller role in the comedy The Sisters Brothers. The next year proved even more successful for Pattinson, as he began working on a number of high-profile projects. He not only landed a lead role in director Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film The Irishman, but he also starred in the Coen Brothers’ Hollywood Pantheon as well as the sci-fi romance Black Widow. In all, 2020 will see the actor star in four different movies, more than any other actor in history!

The Best Of The Rest

In addition to his Oscar wins and nominations, Rob has received considerable acclaim for his leading roles in other films. Among his most memorable performances, one can cite the lead role in Stephen Frears’ The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain, a sensitive and humorous turn as Jack Finney in the family drama The River, or his portrayal of former Beatle John Lennon in I Love You. In 2019, it was announced that Rob would star as the Scarecrow in director James Gunn’s The Twilight Zone adaptation. The film is set to premiere in theaters on April 15, and will be released by Sony Pictures on April 13, 2021.

The Future Of Rob’s Film Career

For the first time in many years, a lull seems to have set in for Rob Pattinson. The actor has largely removed himself from the spotlight, while preparing to tackle a number of high-profile roles in the upcoming years. It is unclear if this is a byproduct of his recent marital crisis or if it is simply a case of him taking a step back from the limelight. Whatever the case may be, with a brand new decade upon us, it is time that we take a look back at Rob’s best movies and discuss their place in cinematic history.
