I don't know how we've gone days with addressing this year's W Magazine Best Performances photo shoot, but it's time. This annual photoshoot celebrating a wide range of performances in film and television has always been fairly... controversial:

Please don’t forget that the brief for W magazine’s annual Best Pefrormances issue has always been “get there and humiliate them” pic.twitter.com/Dpj9QPaT5n

And this year, with photos by German fashion photographer Juergen Teller, is no exception. Check out some pics from the shoot under the cut, and the rest at W Magazine's instagram.

This @wmag shoot was the fastest of my life. 20 seconds, two clicks. Juergen Teller is the OG. https://t.co/LlGyzQbyms pic.twitter.com/Mk41oxBVJn

Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal) is a fan of Teller, praising the photographer's speed.
