That’s right, I want to know your favorite film performances no matter how campy or silly or over-the-top that did NOT recieve the Acadamy Award.
And please, let’s try not to criticise each other’s choices, it’s all opinion after all.
Some that spring to mind:
William Powell and Myrna Loy in The Thin Man
William Powell and James Cagney in Mr. Roberts
Spencer Tracy in Captains Courageous
Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness
Pierce Brosnan and Geoffery Rush in The Tailor of Panama
Lawrence Olivier and Michael Caine in Sleuth
Albert Brooks in *Broadcast News
Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge
Jamie Lee Curtis and Michael Palin in A Fish Called Wanda
