    Faye Dunaway got lucky. Such a mediocre actress who relied on her amazing presence in great parts for the most of her career.

    She didn’t even deserve her win for Network. Liv Ullman and Sissy Spacek were vastly superior but Dunaway was the big star at the time.

    In my opinion, this belongs in the “Unpopular Opinions thread.”

    If she has an amazing presence, how is she a mediocre actress? I don’t think anybody could have played Diana Christensen with the sheer amount of perfection and audacity of that of Faye. It’s such a delicious performance. Liv Ullman and Sissy Spacek were popular in their own way.

    This thread is not about dissing actresses, ladies and gents. Its about celebrating acting and how lucky we are to have the chance to enjoy them, now and in the future.

    Amy Adams

    Catch Me If You Can (96%)

    The Muppets (95%)

    Arrival (94%)

    Her (94%)

    Enchanted (93%)

    American Hustle (92%)

    The Figther (91%)

    Junebug (86%)

    The Master (84%)

    They are not all masterpieces like Arrival or Her, but they are all critically acclaimed
