Elizabeth Taylor herself didn't like the movie
Her performance is actually good in this movie. It's the movie that is bad.
If there's one actor / actress who should have won an oscar for this " overrated " movie, it should have been Sally Field. The best acting performance in this movie came from her.
Who put him on this list. Forrest Gump is the 2nd best movie of all time after the Departed and Tom Hanks is brilliant in the role.
Hell no.. It's the best movie and Tom Hanks work in this movie was great.. No way he should be in this list
I think Tom was great, but Travolta was really outstanding.V 2 Comments
This one is really not true. Kevin Spacey was brilliant in American Beauty. He pulled off a role that most actors would have "over-cooked" or made look sleazy/cliche. His subtle nuances, comedic timing and so many other things made this performance great...
Oh wait.. did I just vote that I didn't like the performance? Laugh out loud... So confusing this...
I think that Kevin Spacey was really good in that movie and he is surely a oscar worthy winning actor. The problem is that this movie was not a oscar worthy movie at the first place. So, it's almost a shame that he won an oscar for a stupid movie. They should let him win an oscar for one of his better films instead than this one.
Kevin Spacey is one of my favorite actors, and he was very deserving for this award. - MontyPython
Don't comment idiots.It means you are upvoting it.
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
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 GraduateV 1 Comment
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
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 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
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.
