For you, who were the most underrated movie or performances by an actor, an actress, a supporting actor, a supporting actress or original score, adapted score, original song, etc… during this awards season?
I will upload a list of my top 5 on each category in a few days, but I wanna ‘hear’ your opinion.

Inside OutJanuary 14, 2016 at 5:16 pm #209730
Kingsman: The Secret Service
Love and Mercy
Straight Outta Compton
Inside Out (because it should have gotten into several more categories easily, including Picture)

Charlize Theron Mad Max Fury Road
Kristen Stewart Clouds of Sils Maria

Michael Shannon and Inside Out in scoreJanuary 14, 2016 at 5:22 pm #209733
Without a doubt, Dope was very underrated. It was a fantastic comedy that didn’t quite reach the heights of The Grand Budapest Hotel. I kind of wish it had gotten more Oscar talk, even though I don’t know where it woukd have fallen. I loved it but it was just under the Oscar bar.January 14, 2016 at 5:32 pm #209734
^This. One of my favorite films of 2015.
Liev Schrieber’s performance in Spotlight was very much underappreciated this season.January 14, 2016 at 5:40 pm #209735
There’s always a ton, but just a few off the top of my head:
Love & Mercy
Jake Gyllenhall, Southpaw
Samuel L. Jackson, The Hateful Eight
Walton Goggins, The Hateful Eight
Ryan Gosling, The Big Short
Rose Byrne, Spy
Andrew Garfield, 99 Homes (Shannon at least got lots of non-Oscar mentions)
Nicholas Hoult, Mad Max: Fury RoadJanuary 14, 2016 at 6:01 pm #209736
Rose Byrne, Spy: Her performance eclipses the entire Best Supporting Actress lineup
Ben Mendelsohn, Mississippi Grind: A rare leading man turn for Ben Mendelsohn and he nails it.
Kingsman: The Secret Service: A better spy movie than Spectre.
It Follows: Had one of the best, and most inventive scores of the year.January 14, 2016 at 6:08 pm #209737
Julie Walters in Brooklyn (Supp. Actress)
It Follows (Sound, production design, Score)
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Screenplay, Picture, Director)
The man from UNCLE (Costume, Production Design, Score)
Creed (everything)January 14, 2016 at 9:24 pm #209738
Andrew Garfield, 99 Homes (easily the best in his movie, easily one of the best male performances of the year, and easily miles better than Michael Shannon)
Joan Allen, Room (shocking that she didn’t get in at the Oscars given all of the support for the film; would’ve made a great winning duo with Brie Larson)January 14, 2016 at 10:06 pm #209739This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.January 16, 2016 at 10:49 pm #209740
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl for everything
Inside Out’s score
The End of the Tour
The Diary of a Teenage Girl
Andrew Garfield and everything for 99 Homes (Shannon did get recognition though)
Cate Blanchett in Truth
I’ll See You in My Dreams
Katherine Waterston in Steve Jobs
so many others
