Either they were out of favor with those doing the voting or they were overshadowed by another actor in the same film. Perhaps they had never been given credit for having much "talent" to begin with. One that I keep thinking of is an actor in one of my favorite movies of all time. I'm talking about Matthew Broderick's performance in Glory. I've seen it many times and I think he did a marvelous job portraying William Gould Shaw, the young Massachussets Colonel commanding the 54th Regiment of black soldiers in the Civil War. It's hard to get much credit when you're playing opposite Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman in the same movie, but I thought he was perfect for the role of the young colonel. How bout you? Wanna give credit to an actor or actress you felt was overlooked?
