20 Of The Worst Performances By Nicolas Cage

Nicolas Cage has given some of the most awkward and bizarre performances ever, so it’s easy to forget that he’s actually an award-winning actor. In 1995, Cage won an Academy Award in the Best Actor category, for playing a suicidal alcoholic who goes on a mission to drink himself to death, in the film Leaving Las Vegas. After the big win, it has pretty much been all downhill for Cage, whose films flopped, almost one after another.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011)

If the first wasn’t bad enough, Nicolas Cage had to devour us with yet another unintentionally humorous performance. Not that we hate Cage as the Ghost Rider, but he should’ve thought about it at least when he was in his 30’s.

​Season Of The Witch (2011)

Let’s not even get started on this one. He looks and acts more like a witch than a Teutonic Knight. What’s worse is the storyline wasn’t actually bad, but the performances and CGI was!

Ghost Rider (2007)

Okay, the CGI was great no question about that, but don’t tell me Johnny Blaze didn’t come off as more funny than frightening. IGN rated it as the worst comic book movie of the decade, and Cage won himself a Razzie nomination for Worst Actor!

Trespass (2011)

What a fall from grace for Cage and Nicole Kidman. Both Oscar winning actors produced what is a completely clueless thriller that leaves a bad feeling in your stomach. What’s worse is those who reviewed positively praised everyone’s performances except Cage’s.
