    Jennifer Carpenter was outstanding in that movie She should’ve got more recognition for this performance Even an Oscar nomination

    Happy to see more people who think the same, the way she acted with her body and her screams are top notch. Really underated

    Gerard Buttler in 300. I still can’t decide whether the movie itself is good or bad but his performance is an absolute wonder to behold.

    Eva Green in 300 sequel. Now that movie is flat out bad but she was divine.

    Michael Sheen in Underworld:Rise of the Lycans. It’s really a B movie and best out of Underworld movies and he, Rhona Mirta and Bill Nighy were so committed, it’s a rewatchable cable crap.

    Elisabeth Moss in The Invisible Man. Remove Moss and you are left with nothing. But she was everything so…

    I feel so bad for the Queen Halle Berry. She was incredible in the following okay -to-bad films:

    Gothika
    Losing Isiah (Oscar worthy)
    Frankie & Alice (Oscar worthy)
    The Call
    Die Another Day
    Cloud Atlas

    This is an obscure one but Barbara Harris got an Oscar nomination for a terrible Dustin Hoffman movie called Who is Harry Kellerman and Why is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me.

    The movie is so irritating and almost unwatchable but she has this little section of the film where she is just great (and nominated for it, quite an accomplishment considering the film she was in.)

    Jennifer Carpenter in Quarantine!

    She has the best screams. I would have chosen her to be a Best Actress nominee. Her performance actually received acclaim from many reviewers. Here is a well written review.
