    I’ve noticed some have listed bad movies and some have listed performances in films they dislike so I am just listing performances I have found to either be excellent (and in a few cases awards worthy in spite of my loathing of the film) or good in films I have given a rating of 2 or lower on Letterboxd.

    Obviously this is purely subjective but those I have found to be awards worthy in spite of me not liking the film the performer is in have been marked with an asterisk (*).

    – Gillian Anderson, The X Files : I Want to Believe*
    – Emily Blunt, The Girl on the Train*
    – Glenn Close, 101 Dalmatians*
    – Bryan Cranston, The Upside
    – Viola Davis, Suicide Squad
    – Jane Fonda, Monster-in-Law
    – Hugh Grant, The Rewrite
    – Scarlett Johansson, Lost in Translation*
    – Laura Linney, Love Actually*
    – Joanna Lumley, Absolutely Fabulous : The Movie
    – Rachel McAdams, Eurovision Song Contest : The Story of Fire Saga
    – Helen Mirren, The Tempest
    – Simon Pegg, How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
    – Christopher Plummer, All The Money in the World*
    – Alan Rickman, Love Actually*
    – Dan Stevens, Eurovision Song Contest : The Story of Fire Saga
    – Kristen Stewart, Seberg

    Maybe put Sophie Turner out from the list and its fine. Many X-Men fans criticized her performance given we almost get Saoirse Ronan instead of her

    On separate note, i had this:

    Selena Gomez- Rainy Day in New York

    Basically Saoirse Ronan in every motion picture she was in between 2008-2014 save for Hanna.

    Anya Taylor Joy in The New Mutants

    Angelina Jolie, Micbelle Pfeiffer and Elle Fanning in Maleficent sequel

    Every bad movies with Dakota Fanning as the lead

    I second Emma Thompson & Alan Rickman in Love, Actually.

    That one is a mess of epic proportions and I can’t believe it’s a holiday classic in Europe, but those two are great in it.
