The Oscars are usually seen as the highlight of an actor’s career, but sadly not even the Academy – which hands out the Oscars – always has the right idea about what makes a good performance. Let’s take a look at some of the “Best Actress” Oscar wins we’ve had over the years that really didn’t deserve to make it. Seriously, some of these are quite horrible.
Julia Roberts – Erin Brockovich
I know, it’s based on a true story and that always does well at the Oscars. But did anyone actually watch this move and enjoy it? I doubt even Julia Roberts enjoyed it.
Jennifer Connelly – A Beautiful Mind
It’s a great movie and Russell Crowe absolutely nails it, but Jennifer’s performance was hardly the best thing a woman did in the entire year of 2001.
Renée Zellweger – Cold Mountain
It’s honestly not her best movie, nor is it her best performance. I can see her winning an Oscar for Bridget Jones, sure. Not for this.
