First, a few disclaimers:
- We cut this list down to the 15 greatest actors based on Academy Award wins and nominations. The Oscars aren't perfect, but it was the simplest way to get a (fairly) objective list.
- We left out some famous actors that were at their best in the 1930s and 1940s (sorry Spencer Tracy!).
- Lastly, in order for a film to qualify as an actor's "worst," it has to have had at least 10 Rotten Tomatoes reviews. Many of these actors have starred in lesser-known films that ranked lower than the ones we have listed, but these movies didn't have enough reviews to provide a fair representation of their awfulness.
Now that the legal disclaimers are out of the way, let's get things started with the man that inspired this list in the first place.
