    Our next actor is one of my personal favorites that also shines no matter how big or small the role is. She has appeared in four Oscar nominated Best Pictures with one of them winning and a few that went on to get other nominations and it is Allison Janney. 

    The Ice Storm (1997)

    American Beauty (1999)

    The Hours (2002)

    Juno (2007)

    Hairspray (2007)

    Away We Go (2009)

    The Help (2011)

    Margaret (2011)

    The Way Way Back (2013)

    This one is a hard one for me but I thought she was heartbreaking in The Help. That scene where she is in bed telling Emma Stone about Cicely Tyson was powerful. I also thought she was wonderful in Juno, Hairspray, The Way Way Back, and Away We Go. I did a poll a while back about Janney’s best career performance and remember hearing a lot of people talk about a movie called Margaret so that’s why I included it. It’s been a while since I saw American Beauty but she was great in that too

    No one has really given her a leading performance in film, why won’t someone realize that she is a 6 time Emmy winner and maybe could earn their studio an Oscar.

    I know right! She always a scene stealer and never the lead. That’s a shame. Maybe with her double Emmy win this past year will boost her chances for a lead role

    I thought she was a real standout in The Way Way Back. Her first scene alone had me in stitches.

    She would have been a standout nominee/winner for any of these movies & performances. She so underrated in film and they don’t give her well-deserving roles either. She’s another leading-lady-wannabe Hollywood desperately needs right now!
