Re: Overrated actors and actresses

I could say Joseph Cotten, but doubt most on here would know who that was. He was widely considered the most unappreciated actor of the Old Hollywood era.

Re: Overrated actors and actresses

I like Cotten a lot. He could do the everyman routine convincingly and bring the charm too for roles like Shadow of a Doubt. I've only seen a handful of his films mind.

Always like him. Another actor that I didn't realize that I liked? Jude Law. Several times, I've watched a movie of his, and half-way through, I'm like, "Wait, that's Jude Law."

Harry Sean Stanton? I mean Harry Dean Stanton: Paris, Texas - never nominated! Dustin Hoffman doesn’t win for Midnight Cowboy? Pacino in Dog Day Afternoon? Brando doesn’t even get nominated for Apocalypse Now? Marcello Mastroianni? The legendary Edward G. Robinson? Kinski? Joseph Cotten? Charles Bickford? Quite possibly the greatest actress ever, Liv Ullman, has never won? Barbara Stanwyck nominated 4 times, never won? Hanna Schygulla? Joan Bennett? Let’s see who has won: Tom Hanks 2; Spielberg's resume suggests he is a superior filmmaker to Tarkovsky? Are you kidding me? Other winners include: Jamie Foxx, Nic Cage, John Wayne, Clooney, Cuba Gooding Jr, Mo’Nique, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Hudson, Sandra Bullock, Natalie Portman, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Cher. Meryl Steep has 17 nominations? 17! Need I go on?
Whoopi Goldberg has an Oscar.

You mentioned Gary Oldman. . . he has one nomination, I believe. Clooney, on the other hand? Four nominations with one win.

I used to hate Jude Law when his early films came out. Now, I like just about anything he is in, except maybe most of his romantic comedies.

Re: Overrated actors and actresses

Liam Neeson does nothing for me at all. Neither in dramas nor action fare. I don't feel anything when watching him on screen.

At least Caine makes me feel angry that he's being paid to talk in his normal voice in exactly the same way that he does in every other film he's ever starred in. He has the best gig going.

Re: Overrated actors and actresses

I hate Vin Diesel's films. Pitch Black might be the only movie I liked, and I haven't seen that in years. His acting is so wooden and I got tired of him right away.
