2016 Villain of the Year Winner

10 Cloverfield Lane


The character of Howard was in many ways the perfect showcase for John Goodman’s rather underappreciated skills, in part because he’s that most interesting of villains: the bad guy who doesn’t realize he’s bad.  Howard genuinely seems to view himself as some sort of father figure for this girl and genuinely believes that he’s saving her by keeping her under lock and key and the fact that he is inadvertently correct about this only adds an extra lair of depth to all this.
