21 Great Performances In Awful Movies



Everyone can make a poor decision from time to time so it’s not surprising that even some of Hollywood’s biggest stars appeared in shameful movies. However, what distinguishes the best from the rest is their ability to turn in a powerful performance despite everything going terribly wrong around them. Here’s a list of 21 amazing actors who delivered great performances against all odds.

1. Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)

The world fell in love with Cate Blanchett after seeing her majestic portrayal of Queen Elizabeth I in the 1998 movie ‘Elizabeth’. The critically acclaimed actress has won many accolades since she rightfully became a superstar and she is considered one of the best actresses of our time. However, that doesn’t mean she didn’t make wrong decisions during her prolific career.

Although her portrayal of the Virgin Queen was her breakthrough role, Blanchett should have stayed away from the film’s dreadful sequel ‘Elizabeth: The Golden Age’. While the first movie was praised, ‘The Golden Age’ received mostly negative reviews. Both critics and viewers thought that the sequel was a horrid historical fabrication and much closer to a soap opera than a biographical movie.

Despite the movie’s disaster, Blanchett’s performance was widely praised. Not only did she somewhat salvage the movie, but she also received an Academy Award nomination. What can we tell you – the lady sure knows how to act.
