I wrote about my picks for the Academy Awards, but I felt like quite a few actors, actresses and movies were overlooked entirely this year. As with every year, there are always fantastic performances that don’t get noticed because they are in smaller budget movies or in movies on a difficult subject. Here are a few people and films that deserved a little Oscar love this year:
- Dominic Cooper, The Devil’s Double
- Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 50/50
- Ryan Gosling, Ides of March
- Michael Sheen, Beautiful Boy
- Maria Bello, Beautiful Boy
Stephanie C has a lot of opinions about movies and wishes the Academy listened to some of them.
