Jim Carrey -- WAY too underrated

Jim Carrey is incredibly underrated as an dramatic actor. "The Majestic" did a terrible box office but it was a terrific film. Carrey's performance could've been nominated for Best Actor but no.. the Academy steered away from it.. but we can also thank that on part of the AUDIENCE WHO DIDN'T GO SEE THE FILM IN THEATRES. folks, this is the same director, Darabont, who made "Shawshank Redemption" and "Green Mile", two successful films (not so much SR in box office but when released on video)... why do people snub Carrey when he isn't doing something where he is effortlessly hamming up his colourful character role??

Damn...I'm tired of Jim Carrey!

By the way on this board I always feel like a child who wanders in in the middle of a movie and wants to know..... :?

I give credit to Carrey for being able to pronuciate all his lines clearly when he does drama and being able to say the lines louder when in a situation of stress and tension and for bringing the confused look perfected in the tv movie of the week back. This is the description of him trying to straight drama, because he never has inhabited a role yet.  His qualities of a comedic actor seem mainly to be him at his most manic in one persona bleeding over all his comedies. But, with Man on the Moon, he incorporated both the manic quality with the pretentious dramatic acting. The thing is, I liked Man on the Moon, The Truman Show and The Majestic. I didn't complement Carrey for bringing the material up, but he kept it afloat at least for the purpose we could still admire all the other qualities of those movies.

I agree.. and I also think he deserved the nod for MotM and Majestic.. Truman Show was good but I just didn't think he would've deserved a nomination for it

No, no.  I didn't mean it like that.  The administrators on this board like to have fun with us commoners.

No Shit... I leave for a few weeks and when I come back, they've lost thier minds... I think it's the stress of having me gone all the time... I'm usually like the Mom of the admins... they get upset at eachother and get in little fights and I make them a sandwich and tuck them in for a nap... except for P, who just constantly suckles at my teet.... ( he loves attention.. he's momma's favorite)
