Despite all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, it must be incredibly tough to be an actor. There are some in the industry who literally pour their life and soul into each and every role they have. Just look at the body transformations of Joaquin Phoenix for Joker, or Jared Leto for the upcoming Morbius, to name just two.

To recognise the best of the best we have the Oscars, prestigious awards actors would give anything for. Then, there are these performances at the very opposite end of the scale. Any awards these actors are likely to win thanks to their work in 2019 won't come from the Academy, but from the Golden Raspberry committee.

Some of these performances come as the latest in a long line of duds from actors we have come to expect it from, others come from usually incredible actors who just didn't give it their all.

Whatever the reason, it seems that no one is safe from having a shocker, and 2019 gave us no shortage of these dreadful offerings.

15. Lee Pace - Captain Marvel

One of the great aspects of the MCU is seeing all these different characters pop up throughout the individual franchises within the wider universe. Black Widow in The Winter Soldier, Doctor Strange in Ragnarok, even Bucky in the Black Panther mid credit scene. Captain Marvel's version of this, on top of Nick Fury and Agent Coulson, was bringing back Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser.

Though the character was easily the worst part of Guardians of the Galaxy, this was seen as a chance for redemption. Instead however, we got the same, boring and emotionless charisma vacuum as we did before.

Granted, Pace wasn't exactly given much to do in his limited screen time, but after being so poorly received in 2014, the actor could have at least tried a little harder to make a lasting impression, or brought at least a little personality to the character. Just something to lessen the bad taste in the mouth, instead of the same poor performance as before.


This standard nerd combines the looks of Shaggy with the brains of Scooby, has an unhealthy obsession with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and is a firm believer that Alter Bridge are the greatest band in the world.
