Not just a handsome chap. He has great acting ability that has always been over looked. Think less Pretty Woman and more Chicago. His performance in An Officer and A Gentleman was widely praised by critics.

Much the joker onscreen, he has been able to show a serious side in films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. So out of character for Carrey – His emotion in the film works well with the psychological thriller and sci-fi aspects that unfortunately failed to get him noticed by the Academy awards.
3. Alan Rickman

A former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company. His roles have included The Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood; Prince of Thieves and Han Gruber in Diehard.
Alan Rickman is highly noticed as one of the best actors to have never been nominated for an Oscar. He has won a BAFTA and Golden Globe award in the past.
His Camp portrayal of Obi Wan Kenobi was not a bad effort but nor was it worthy of an Oscar nomination. Trainspotting was worthy of a nomination and has amassed a cult following since its initial release. Ewan delivers a worthy performance in Trainspotting that set up the rest of his career.
