We have long maintained that Oscars are important — they give a bigger audience to movies and a brighter future to actors — they don’t necessarily represent the “best” of the year. That’s why every once in a while a completely undeserving actor or a movie goes on to win the top award. Today, we are going to look at 10 actors who aren’t “worst” in general sense — some of them are at the very least average actors — but when you club them with Oscar winning actors like Danial-Day Lewis or Meryl Streep, they appear to be less than average actors. With that said, here’s the list of 10 worst Oscar winning actors ever.
10. Matthew McConaughey
Alright, alright. alright! He has a knack for picking roles that are more often than not performance oriented but if he does full justice to them or not is debatable. His developed aesthetic sense sometimes works against him but when it clicks it does wonders to his careers. Very frankly speaking he graduated to the A league only after his Oscar victory for ‘Dallas Buyers Club’. His subsequent roles in ‘True Detective’ (TV series) and ‘Interstellar’ further cemented his positions as a bankable star in Hollywood. In the early stages of his career he starred in a couple of hit but poorly reviewed romantic comedies and occasionally showed sparks of brilliance in films like ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Amistad’. His recent collaborations with avant-garde filmmakers have fall flat in their faces and his only interesting project in the immediate future includes the Stephen King adaptation ‘The Dark Tower’. He is a good actor but still needs a couple of more solids films and performances to fall into the great category.
9. George Clooney
