    To be fair, I didn't see many overacted moments here. Mainly because you talked over them, or cut them off.

    Michael Sheen gave by far the best performance in the Twilight saga

    As horrifying as it is, Michael Sheens acting in Twilight was the highlight of the whole series. Made a nice change from both of Kristen Stewarts emotions from start to finish and Twinkly vampires/puppy dogs crying over who gets to be more depressed...

    I thought the Michael Sheen scene was actually good. I thought he actually made that stupid movie.

    Vampires Kiss entirely relies on Nick Cage's overacting... it really would have been a boring movie if it weren't for him being over the top insane through the whole thing...

    The late, great Victor Buono once said "I loved playing King Tut on "Batman", because it afforded the opportunity to do something actors are told never to do... overact!"

    Michael Sheen made that movie thoroughly enjoyable for me. He was great.

    not all were over acted... as most of their characters were over the top personas, so needed an over the top performance; not overacted. Perhaps re-title your show: "The most over the top performances; with some arguably overacting too."

    Gary Oldman in The Fifth Element is the most brilliant overacting of all times, in my opinion.

    Gary Oldman is my absolute FAVORITE actor. His role as "Norman Stanfield" in the movie Leon: The Professional, was so over-acted but FUCKING AWESOME.
