    Excluding James McAvoy, all these dudes are great choices. I would have chosen Hawkes until i thought of Sam Rockwell, so my vote is for other.

    I voted for McAvoy, but I love Sam Rockwell. I want both those guys to win an Oscar soon.

    maybe it’s not a popular opinion, but Ben Whishaw is my favourite actor… I’d nominate him for “Perfume” and “Cloud Atlas” as well as Emmy nominations last year for The Hour and especially this year for The Hollow Crown!

    Whishaw, is better than Abbie Cornish in Bright Star. I’m happy to see him in the Bond films as well. He’s terrific!

    Of the actors listed, none of them are ‘under-rated’ imo, except for McAvoy. I also agree with the mention of Sam Rockwell, a very versatile actor.

    I would agree with pook that the only one on the list above that can legitimately be called underrated is James McAvoy. The rest of them have all been Oscar nominated (I can’t consider any actor with an Oscar nomination in an acting category to their name to be “underrated”) and have been critically acclaimed in numerous films and roles, especially Giamatti.

    I find many comedic actors to be underrated as many people dismiss them because of the movies they appear in (that’s why I’m glad Jonah Hill has two Oscar nominations). The first that come to mind are Will Ferrell and Seth Rogen.

    I saw the Hollow Crown as well! I must say that Whishaw’s Richard 2 comes close to being the most memorable portrayal of this monarch. He’s so good in the role.

    I think Ralph Fiennes is pretty underrated seeing he has only been nominated for an Oscar 2 times back in the 90’s. He is one of the finest and his perofrmance especially in the final Harry Potter was amazing. Ian McKellen is the other one he has never won as well and only has been nominated a hand full of times.

    Tom Wilkinson.  I’ve loved him in so many movies.  Shame he isn’t as widely appreciated and known as his talent deserves.  “I don’t know…it’s a mystery,” as Geoffrey Rush might say.

    Ralph Fiennes: A fabulous actor!  Grand Budapest Hotel!

    Tom Wilkinson: One of my all-time favorites. Even in films like The Black Knight, the guy never phones it in.

    i went with john Hawkes as i feel like he has been looked over for at least 1 oscar maybe 2

    2012 lead actor–cant believe he wasnt nominated for the sessons as i thought he was best actor of the yr and DDL didnt deserve the win anyways

    2010 supp actor–this was a role which was under appreciated in my opinion (everyones focus was lawrence) Bale was a deserving winner but thought it was either gonna be Rush or Hawkes

    I voted Giamatti because he was overlooked for The Ides of March.

    Willem Dafoe. He is one of the finest actors working today. 
    I’d have given him nominations for:

    • Best Supporting Actor (Platoon) 
    • Best Supporting Actor (Mississippi Burning) 
    • Best Supporting Actor (Shadow of the Vampire)  – WIN
    • Best Actor (Animal Factory) 
    • Best Supporting Actor (Auto Focus)
