24 Beautifully-Acted (And Overlooked) Scenes


Emmys and Oscars and Golden Globes and orange blimps are great and all, but recognition from Cracked is truly the highest honor an actor can receive. So, while there are no acceptance speeches here, we can assuredly say "You're welcome" to the following people, because we know they're weeping tears of joy right now while softly saying, "Thank you, Cracked."

Besides, Emmys and Oscars and Golden Globes always recognize the BIG stuff. Best actor, best actress, best supporting, etc. What we really want to honor is the subtle moments. The parts of the sum, if you will. We want to get down to the nitty gritty, to describe the tics that actually make those performances what they are. It's as subtle as a facial tic, the movement of a hand, or a twitchiness that leads to a threat of violence. All that goes underappreciated, or even unnoticed on first viewing. Let's celebrate those moments.
