    YES. Nathan Lane was marvelous too.

    Andrew, I even liked her in “The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh”. The sign of a true fan! ????

    Maria Bello, Downloading Nancy
    Kimberly Elise, For Colored Girls
    Robert Pattinson, The Rover
    Nicole Kidman, Birth
    Felicity Jones, Breathe In
    Sarah Silverman, I Smile Back
    Olivia Wilde, Meadowland
    Naomi Watts, Adore

    (many of these films I personally like but I feel they’re often considered bad)

    For the record, Dinklage is the main problem with The Boss. McCarthy gives a much better performance. Dinklage is cringe-worthy outside of GOT.

    Dinklage was so over the top he made me laugh. McCarthy didn’t make me laugh once. When she works with her husband Ben Falcone on films like The Boss and Tammy, she always plays rude, crude, unfunnny, unlikable characters that have no redeeming value whatsoever. She basically becomes the female equivalent of an annoying Adam Sandler character. Ben Falcone simply isn’t a good director. At least Paul Feig knows how to use McCarthy’s talents wisely.

    Best Supporting Actress nominee Barbara Harris is phenomenal as Allison, a 34 year old file clerk who badly auditions for a rock musical in Who is Harry Kellerman and Why is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?. The 1971 film about the ennui of celebrity and pondering suicide as a solution was reviled by critics and audiences. Harris, however, offered her best work.

    That is a really good one. I remember finding a VHS copy of that on sale somewhere and it was just torture to watch. BUT then Barbara Harris suddenly enters and is so brilliant.

    I wonder if that wins for Best Oscar nominated performance in a bad film. Another one is Christine Lahti in Swing Shift. That film is such a mess and yet Lahti managed to get her only acting nomination for it.

    The Iron Lady or The Lovely Bones weren’t bad films, and The Miss Has Two Faces was an amazing chick-flick. It’s also funny how you mention PENELOPE CRUZ from all people, instead of Marion Cotillard. ???? But it’s your list – Cheers! ????

    It is indeed my list and I stand behind it, but I do love the powers controlling our world for allowing so much room for different opinions.

    Having said that, I do agree about Cotillard and will add her on my list now. Thank you for pointing that out.
