    We all know we have some Oscar-nominated performances that we hate for some various reasons. Among the 20 acting Oscar nominees of each year, who do you think delivered the worst performance? You can also do this by category if you want.

    2019:
    Renée Zellweger, Judy (I know she is universally beloved but personally I have never seen a movie in which I liked her as an actress, and her take as Garland was almost caricatural imo)

    2018:
    Sam Rockwell, Vice (speaking of caricatural – I don’t think it was entirely his fault since that was exactly what he was going for, it’s just not a performance that should ever get nominated for an Oscar)

    2017:
    Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel Esq.

    2016:
    Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins

    2015:
    Sylvester Stallone, Creed (I’m not that big of a Rocky fan, he was alright I guess)

    2014:
    Bradley Cooper, American Sniper

    2013:
    Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers’ Club

    2012:
    Jacki Weaver, Silver Linings Playbook

    2011:
    Jessica Chastain, The Help

    2010:
    Helena Bonham Carter, The King’s Speech (I haven’t seen that many nominees from that year and didn’t mind most of the others)

    Didn’t actually mind the supporting actress line-up

    2017:

    Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel Esq.
    Meryl Streep, The Post (to be fair with a lot of these that year they’re not bad it’s just that they were in a year where there were SO many superior performances)

    Mark Ruffalo, Spotlight
    Alicia Vikander, The Danis Girl

    Bradley Cooper, American Sniper
    Felicity Jones, The Theory of Everything (not bad but felt more supporting which was ironic considering the film is based on her memoir)
    Edward Norton, Birdman
    Keira Knightley, The Imitation Game

    2013:

    Christian Bale, American Hustle
    Quite like the Actress lineup that year

    Jean Dujardin, The Artist
    Glenn Close, The Iron Lady
    Kenneth Branagh, My Week With Marilyn
    Berenice Bejo, The Artist

    2010:

    All the nominees like Hoster said were actually all right that year.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    2019: Cynthia Erivo – Harriet (this is uncomfortable as she was the only POC actor nominated. With a better script and director she could’ve been amazing.)

    2018: Rami Malek – Bohemian Rhapsody

    2017: Woody Harrelson – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (he’s fine, it’s just there were better options)

    2016: Nicole Kidman – Lion (or maybe it was just that wig)

    2015: Eddie Redmayne – The Danish Girl

    2014: Robert Duvall – The Judge

    2013: Jared Leto – Dallas Buyers Club

    2012: Hugh Jackman – Les Misérables

    I have too many blind spots from previous years to continue.

    Still pissed that Rockwell & Adams ended up as the supporting nominees for Vice when Perry & Pill where right there with better performances.

    Like Allison Pill? Did she even do anything in that film?

    I don’t remember any of her scenes or lines lol. I’m really wondering what you saw in her performance.
