Most Undeserving Oscar WinnersIrina2932

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 HeavenV 1 Comment
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.
She's only in the film for like 5 minutes, and she lacked character development and depth.
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.V 1 Comment
Elizabeth Taylor herself didn't like the movie
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.
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.
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
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.V 2 Comments
