    Disclaimer that my selection of the choices for this poll is extremely subjective so of course, please feel free to identify other worthy actors I’ve failed to list. (I acknowledge that for some of these options I’m somewhat biased in favor of actors I’ve seen perform on stage.)

    Emily Blunt is underrated as hell. Also for Kirsten Dunst. Their talents and range are so much better than some of the young and overrated starlets Oscar nominees from the last decade.

    Alfred Molina. He should have won for his one scene in Boogie Nights alone.

    FYC Emmys: Ted Lasso (all categories), Wandavision (all categories), The Mandalorian (Best Drama Series), Mythic Quest (Best Comedy Series), Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You), Alan Tudyk (Resident Alien), Antony Starr (The Boys), Daniel Brühl (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Ethan Hawke (The Good Lord Bird), Invincible (Animated Program)

    Jamie Lee Curtis. Imagine thinking she doesn’t deserve to be on the poll list.

    Halloween – True Lies – My Girl – Freaky Friday – A Fish Called Wanda – Trading Places – Blue Steel.

    She’s more than overdue.

    I would never say she (or at least a dozen other actors) “doesn’t deserve” to be on this list.  I may have been conflating a bit actors overdue for a first Oscar  nomination and actors I’ve seen on stage (such as Alfred Molina, Jeffrey Wright and Ben Whishaw) who are overdue for more good film roles.

    Delroy Lindo should have been nominated this past year.

    Donald Sutherland should have easily been nominated a couple of times.

    Curtis should have been nominated a couple of times and she came close a couple of times as well. She was def. next in line for True Lies (category confusion – lead at GG, supporting at SAG) and she won BAFTA for Trading Places. It’s a true shame she’s never gotten in.
