Okay. Fresh off Halle Berry's win making her the go-to gorgeous actress who has done good work and a whole lot of stink, we now start the nominating process for the guys.
I'll admit sexist bias here, but "pretty" isn't a big part of the qualification process here. What I'm looking for is actors who have done good work - winning some major award is nice but not necessary - and have also appeared in many, many stinkers.
Just to be clear: Casper Van Diem, Dolph Lundgren, Adam Sandler. They don't count because they don't have any good work to speak of.
So here we go with our starting line-up, the guys I'll call The Big Three. All of them Oscar winners, all their careers filled with the dubious.
F. Murray Abraham
Won Oscar in: Amadeus
But then he showed up in: so many films on the SyFy Channel I think even he has lost track.
Cuba Gooding Jr.
Won Oscar in: Jerry Maguire
I also loved him in: Boyz N The Hood, A Few Good Men, Outbreak
But then he showed up in: Daddy Day Camp, Boat Trip, Rat Race, Snow Dogs, Norbit, ...
Won Oscar in: Leaving Las Vegas
I also loved him in: Raising Arizona, Red Rock West
But then he showed up in: Vampire's Kiss, Ghost Rider, Knowing, The Sorceror's Apprentice, ...
Okay, these three guys are into the semi-finals, no problem. Do you have anyone else that you think deserves to join them. One stinky film in a good career is not enough, so Samuel L. Jackson showing up for Snakes On A Plane won't put him on the list.
Nominations close Thursday night. Put your suggestion in the comments. The poll will start on Friday.
