Most Undeserving Oscar Winners


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Glenda Jackson - A Touch of Class
42 Grace Kelly - The Country Girl

Her performance is actually good in this movie. It's the movie that is bad.

43 Katharine Hepburn - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

I have nothing against Katharine Hepburn, but this movie proves that Oscars is all about politics. This movie is really a let down and didn't deserve to be nominated.

Katharine Hepburn was great as usual,but this year,Anne Bancroft should have won for The Graduate

44 Nicole Kidman - The Hours Nicole Kidman - The Hours Nicole Mary Kidman is an Australian-American actress and film producer. Kidman's breakthrough roles were in the 1989 feature film thriller Dead Calm and television thriller miniseries Bangkok Hilton.

Love many of her films but for some reason I find " The Hours " her most boring movie she has done. She did so many good " worthy of an oscar " movies ( " The Others ", " Dogsville ", " Birth "... ) that I can't understand why she did get away with an oscar for this one. Nicole Kidman is certainly an " oscar worth winning actress " but this one was really undeserved.

She was pretty good in The Hours but Julianne Moore should have won for Far From Heaven

She's so overrated. - MissionImpossible

45 Jennifer Connelly - A Beautiful Mind

Altough Jennifer Connelly has proven that she is a wonderful talented actress, she didn't deserve to be nominated ( for her own sake ) for such an overrated movie. I think that the other actresses nominated that year for the movie " In the bedroom " ( Marisa Tomei and Sissy Spacek ) deserved more than Jennifer Connelly a winning oscar. Jennifer Connelly did outstanding performances in so many other movies ( that weren't nominated ) that it's a pitty she won an oscar for this one.

46 Jack Palance - City Slickers
47 Richard Dreyfuss - The Goodbye Girl Richard Dreyfuss - The Goodbye Girl
48 Rex Harrison - My Fair Lady
49 Marisa Tomei - My Cousin Vinny

She was good but Judi Dench was ROBBED.

She was ok but not exeptional enough to actually win an oscar for this movie. Marisa Tomei is a very adorable and highly talented woman and I think she did enough movies afterwards that were much better and certainly played better than " My Cousin Vinny ". They should have let her win an oscar ( there are choises enough ) for one of her other movies. After all she's an oscar worthy actress.

50 Olympia Dukakis - Moonstruck
51 Paul Lukas - Watch on the Rhine
52 Cliff Robertson - Charly
53 Jim Broadbent - Iris
54 Michael Caine - The Cider House Rules Michael Caine - The Cider House Rules

I really love this actor, but he didn't deserve to win. Either Tom Cruise (Magnolia), Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile), or Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense) should've won.

55 Judy Holliday - Born Yesterday
56 Lee Marvin - Cat Ballou

It's Jane Fonda who is standing out in this movie. She should have been nominated and win an oscar.

I like this actor but he's not that great in this movie to actually have won an oscar.

57 Damien Chazelle - La La Land
58 Cher - Moonstruck

I really love Cher and her acting but in 1987 she wasn't the One and only The Best. - Irina2932

Glenn Close should've won instead. 5th Oscar nomination and no wins!

Glenn Close,Sally Kirkland and Holly Hunter were much better

59 Jared Leto - Dallas Buyers Club

Just the most overrated roles I've ever seen. If they picked either Barkhad Abdi or Michael Fassbander I wouldn't really care but they pick the guy with the least amount of screen time and even if he deserved the nomination I just didn't like the role as much even though it was good it wasn't some insane role. Very unlikable and pretty week to the other 2 I just listed. Those two convinced me of who they were playing and were just incredible especially Abdi who never even acted before no less a full motion picture production.

To me he was a very unlikeable character considering he was drug addicted and did nothing to improve himself was just sad even though it was very good but as you said I didn't nearly like it as much as everyone else claimed with how much of a great performance it was but I didn't view it that way.Barkhad Abdi who only appeared in music videos gives one of the greatest performances.Also loved Bradley Cooper who was amazing but Fassbender was the most incredible role out of them all that losing is a pure travesty.
