7 Oscar-Winning Actors Who Failed to Play Trivial Characters, How Come?


A career in the film industry is not always smooth. There are always obstacles that must be faced by actors in every film they star.

To be able to appear nicely in a film, an actor is required to be totalias in acting so that they can be rewarded with prestigious awards such as Oscar.

Yes, until now there have been many successful actors who won the Oscar for their hard work to portray a character very well.

Even so, it turns out that many Oscar-winning actors fail to play trivial characters. Who are they? Check out the reviews below!

Oscar-Winning Actor Who Performs Poorly in Other Films

The life wheel keeps turning. There are actors who were once considered bad, but then won an Oscar. On the other hand, there are Oscar-winning actors who then appear less than optimal.

For example, a row of Oscar-winning actors who have failed to play characters in other films such as the one Gamevos reviews below. Listen, let's!

1. Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne performed beautifully in The Theory of Everything as Stephen Hawking and is believed to be a successful new star in world cinema.

He also took home the Oscar in 2015 through the film after competing with Michael Keaton who appeared stunning at Birdman.

A year later, Eddie was cast as Balem Abrasax in Jupiter Ascending. However, he appeared badly in the expensive, unfamiliar film.

The intention of wanting to look dramatic, he actually looks ridiculous in the film. Eddie was also named the Worst Supporting Actor by the Razzie Awards in 2016.

2. Kevin Costner

Being a director and acting as Lieutenant Dunbar in the film Dances with Wolves, Kevin Costner won 2 Oscars for Director and Best Film.

Unfortunately, that success was swallowed up by his failure to star in the main role in the Robin Hood film: Prince of Thieves until he was named the worst actor.

Not only that, he also won a Razzie Award through the film Wyatt Earp and The Postman. In fact, he is one of the actors who received many Razzie Awards nominations up to 16 times!

3. Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando's acting ability is not in doubt. The proof, he has won 2 Oscars through the film On The Waterfront and The Godfather.

But in 1997, the actor who was difficult to work with was awarded a Razzie Award for the Worst Male Supporting Actor through Doctor Moreau in The Island of Dr. Moreau.

At that time, he was 'competing' with Quentin Tarantino (From Dusk Till Dawn), Val Kilmer (The Island of Dr. Moreau), to Burt Reynolds (Striptease).

4. Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck seemed destined for success behind the scenes. Because, he became the monthly Razzie Awards.

This most expensive Hollywood actor has received 11 nominations and was awarded the Worst Actor title in the films Gigli, Daredevil, and Paycheck.

However, while writing the script for Good Will Hunting with Matt Damon, they were rewarded with the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. In fact, in 2013, the film Argo became the Best Film Oscars.

5. Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt was named Razzie's Worst Couple for being paired with Tom Cruise in the film Interview with the Vampire.

A year later, Brad Pitt made amends with an Oscars Nomination for Best Supporting Actor in 12 Monkeys.

The cool thing is, he won his first Oscar when he became a producer of 12 Years A Slave. He also became the Best Supporting Actor for Male through Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

6. Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio's name skyrocketed after successfully playing the character Jack Dawson in the Titanic film. The film also received many Oscar nominations.

However, the actor, whose nearly all of his films was successful, first won an Oscar in 2016 for Best Actor through the film The Revenant.

His success has made many people forget that he won the Razzie award for Worst Actor after appearing on The Beach as the main character, Richard.

7. Al Pacino

Al Pacino managed to appear ruthlessly in the film Scent of a Woman which later won him the Oscar winner for the best actor category.

Apparently, this actor received 2 Oscar nominations at the same time in the same year. Another nominee is Best Supporting Actor through the film Glengarry Glen Ross.

No less interesting, apart from winning the Oscar, Al Pacino actually won a Razzie Award for the Worst Supporting Actor in the film Jack N Jill.


That was 7 Oscar-winning actors who failed to play trivial characters in other films that apparently received poor ratings as well.

In fact, their failure to portray the film's characters made them 'win' the Razzie Awards.
