Who do you feel are the best actors/ actresses about?
I feel as if there are a lot of very underrated actors/actresses who are not as popular as the likes of people such as Ben Stiller, who IMO I don't rate that high as an actor.
Here are a list of who I believe to be best actors/actresses IMO in no  order:

William Fichner, Robert Knepper, Robert DiNero, Robert Sheehan, Jeff Rawle, Lenny James, Iwan Rheon, Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, Jamie Fox, Trevor Eve, Juliette Lewis, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp,

Honestly, the actors and actresses of today have not the depth of those from the early days of Hollywood. It would be nice to see the rise of the equivalent to Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, or Audrey Hepburn. The closest we have in this day and age to Cary Grant would be Johnny Depp. And that's based on versatility alone.

Javier Bardem.
Harrison Ford.
Noomi Rapace.
Idris Elba.
Russell Crowe.
Bradd Pitt.

I could go on but I've writin' to do.

it's the consumer driven life versus art

there is a lot of highly talented actors out there today but they won't produce the expansive character based technically demanding movies that won't make money.
I wonder how many can sit through a screening of "Grapes of Wrath" with Russel Crowe, or "Singing in The Rain" with Hugh Jackman

Sean Penn stands out heads and shoulders but he's not alone. Jodie Foster, if you insists on male female nominees.

Raquel Welch.  Always worth watching, in my opinion.

Hi third_eye,

It's the reason why we have HBO, BBC, WGBH Boston, Indie films, Art House, cable, etc. There's always a way around Hollywood.  Many great shows are out there (that are not "personality" driven).

Peace.

I'd go with some actors you mentioned, such as Robert DeNiro, Denzel Washington and Johnny Dep, but i'd add David Faustino as well. He's very good in my opinion :yes:

Philip Seymour Hoffman is vastly underrated!

Philip Seymour Hoffman is a one trick pony just like John Malkovich.

William Fichner, Robert Knepper

I got to work with these two, William was an outstanding dude, Robert seemed to be more of a diva.  Love William's acting.
