    Last year, McCoanughey reached the peak of his career, thus far, after a massive re-kick.

    But who out of the past years surprise ‘comebacks’ ‘reinventions’ or ‘breakthroughs’ will most likely get this ‘re-kick’ looking forward?

    I haven’t included relative newcomers like Jack O’Connell,  and stuck to those who have been around for a while, but have gone for a change of pace in the last year on screen, and are being seen in a different light thanks to their roles in 2014/early 2015.

    Michael Keaton obviously (and this is not just me stanning)

    Birdman has reminded people that Michael Keaton used to be the biggest star in the world. Now that he is going to win Best Actor, he will have an awesome comeback. He has already lined up the Beetlejuice sequel and the King Kong prequel, and this year he has a meaty part in Spotlight. He’s going to have a great comeback, and it is very deserving.

    I did consider putting Redmayne on the list, but thought he was sort of in the middle between those I put on, and the true newcomers this year. People recognise him from other performances, but audiences haven’t got a fixed idea of the kind of actor he is in their heads and the kind of films he does, which have changed this year, unlike Aniston/Carell etc. who have changed the way some people see them as actors.

    What about newcomers who will get a massive career boost due to this awards season?

    Recent examples have been Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawerence, Jennifer Hudson, Lupita Nyong’o.

    I thought about that, but then the list would have been as long as my arm, and I’m 6 foot 3! 

    That’s why I decided to go for who’ll get the biggest RE-kick. So someone who is already well known, but this year either got the leading role (Pike), went against type (Carell/Aniston), did the best performance of their career after a drier spell (Keaton/Witherspoon) or truly broke through with acclaim (Stewart).

    Basically, this poll is just based on the new Razzies category, but opened the net a bit wider with the likes of Keaton/Witherspoon/Pike.

    I’ll go with Reese Witherspoon. She already scored a lead role in the next Alexander Payne film Downsizing opposite Matt Damon.

    In a just world, Rene Russo if she gets the nomination tomorrow and the roles were actually available for women her age.

    From this list, it has to be Michael Keaton. Maybe when people are finally allowed to see “Cake,” Jennifer Aniston might enjoy some newfound respectability. Go and headline that HBO/Showtiime/f[X]/AMC/Netflix drama series, J-An!

    Ok I understand what you are saying. Then I think Reese and Jennifer will definitly get meatier roles and Keaton will get more starring work.  If Russo gets nominated (even with Nightcrawler alone) I think we will see more of her

    I think Michael Keaton is the most applicable from the poll.

    But what about J. K. Simmons? A consistent, long-time, and mostly underappreciated, character actor who’s been appearing in recent cult-classics (Juno, for example), finally gets a chance to stand in the spotlight for himself! I think he’ll certainly be headlining bigger projects thanks to Whiplash.

    I see Rene Russo being offered parts that initially would have gone to Melissa Leo. I sincerely believe Leo’s f-bomb Oscar speech ruined her professionally.

    I would say Michael Keaton as well as Jake Gyllenhaal, who has had quite a reinvention the past few years.
