Unfair to mention soaps, most teen-oriented soaps from the UK,US & Oz seem to be cast on the basis of looks from people who have less conviction than a speak your weight machine (especially the one that told me:"One at a time, please"). Some successful film actors are dreadful on stage. Edward Fox and Deborah Kerr spring to mind. I was disappointed by both: they just walked purposely to their "spot" , stood woodenly, said their lines to the audience with no interaction with the rest of the cast.

I would vote Keanu Reeves and Brad Pitt. But the former did a fair job in The Gift, and the latter did well in 12 Monkeys.

No, my nominations are anyone who's appeared in MASH, A-team, Knight Rider, Baywatch, Murder she wrote, Perry Mason, Ironside, Walker Texas Ranger, and any other kiddie or daytime series I may have missed. Anyone appearing more than once is deserving of a special award for naffness.

Oh yes, any American wrestler. And the "presenters" who have to act surprised. What a farce _that_ is...

Worst female actor: Joan Crawford (Kellerman's close)

Worst child actor, Johnny Crawford (Rifleman's kid - actually The rifleman himself was a contender)BR>
Both named Crawford? Something in the name?
I wonder if they were related

I saw "Two Lane Blacktop". And it was a tossup { meaning my lunch } over who was the worst actor in that one. Dennis Wilson was pretty awful too.

Also I've never liked Ron Howard as an actor but he's turned into a darn good director. That was a big suprise for me.

Kendall, I particularly like your choices. Jerry Lewis was probably the single MOST OBNOXIOUS actor/personality of all time...if not the worst.

I would like to see a movie where a rejuvenated Jerry Lewis (created through digital technology) teams up with Jim Carey in a gross-out type comedy at a college sorority gathering.

Think of the possibilities....

I also agree that Elvis was a really terrible actor. The poor lad got roped into doing all those lousy movies by his insanely greedy manager. To watch 12 or so Elvis movies in a row is sort of like watching anything else really mediocre on the instant replay...only more so.

I'd have to put Kevin Costner at the top of my list. He was okay in "Dancing With Wolves" because his monotone voice worked well with the narrative style. Unfortunately he uses that same monotone voice for every role! It took me about three movies (I hate to admit that one of them was the dreaded "Robin Hood") but I finally gave up on him. Cute to look at but sometimes you need more than that to get through a two hour movie!
My husband has an aversion to Sam Neill with his wooden demeanor. When he heard Sam did a miniseries as Merlin he nearly gave himself a hernia laughing over the whole concept.

Wesley, I am glad you mentioned Dennis Wilson....I forgot and he too deserves the "billing." Two Lane Blacktop is simply just one of the worst movies of all time.......right there with Plan Nine from Outer Space which featured an actor (Bela Lugosi) who was dead when the movie was made! The performances by Taylor and Wilson suggest that they too were perhaps dead when TLB was made. The writing was atrocious and Wilson spends most of the movie saying, "We have to re-jet the carbs." I doubt whether either of them could find the jets in a carburetor on the best day they ever had.

I certainly would have given the worst actress statuette (!) to the woman with the angora sweater in Glen or Glenda (Help me with her name, somebody). And there were any number of contenders for worst actor -- I particularly admired Paul Simon in Annie Hall, James Taylor already mentioned, Roy Orbison, these music guys, eh? -- and it was a terrible struggle between Kevin Costner in The Postman, or Kevin Costner in Waterworld. The winner? Kevin Costner in "For Love of the Game". Unbelievable, incredible tripe, everyone in it is appalling, the script is putrid and you can set your watch by the plot twists. But Kevin is so superlatively bad you cannot take your eyes off him for a moment. Such is star power. It is the perfect game of appalling acting in our time.

yours, Peter T.

Sorry....Dumbass Spaw forgot to closes the Bold after dead. It's the heat and thinking of James Taylor that did it. The only plus to the movie was that the royalties were donated by JT for the recently added wing on the Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed. All of us at the Center appreciate the gift that built the James Taylor Rehab Clinic for Catatonic Blandness.

Much appreciated.

Gosh, Peter, I'm beginning to feel sorry for poor Kevin Costner...although I can see your point.

"Dances With Wolves" remains one of my favourite movies, but it just happened to suit his style, while most of the others he was in did not.

I give "The Postman" a slight, but significant edge in awfullness over "Waterworld".

Kris Kristofferson has also shown a knack for starring in some terrible blockbusters. Remember "Heaven's Gate" and "Amerika"?....so bad you had to see them to believe it. "Amerika" was like the last insane gasp of Reaganite paranoia...a right-winger's political wet dream in 4 interminable parts. At the end they all sing the "Spar-Fwangled Dingle-Dangle". Gimme a break.

Now, help me out here. Mick Jagger was awesomely vomitous in "Performance" ("Memo From Turner", in which he greased his hair back and appeared to inflate his lips even further). BUT (and here I defer to the Catters from Oz) was he as bad as that in "Ned Kelley"?
The problem with these things is that too frequently I find myself shrugging and thinking, well, that actor/actress/song, etc., wasn't THAT bad. There are elements in all these categories , though, that I've taken a completely irrational (and probably unfair) dislike to. Angelina Jolie.The whole Rolling Stones catalogue. Mahler. Derek Jacobi. Drew Barrymore. Sinead O'Connor. It could have gone another way, but it didn't.
