What comedic performances would you consider Oscar-worthy?

Post by Babu » Thu Mar 14, 2019 6:43 am

The Oscars tend to ignore comedies, especially broad comedies, which in turn leaves many stellar performances in the dust of makeup heavy biopic characters and melancholic sad boys and girls when it comes to award show recognition. Any performances jump out to you as deserving more love in an idealistic awards season?

Personally, I’m taking Michael Cera in Superbad. For a movie as zany as Superbad, not one scene with Cera felt inauthentic and he actually does have to balance some fairly dramatic beats into the scenes towards the end.
