OVERRATED: Natalie Portman

An actor's post-Oscar arc is never disappointing enough to inspire a retraction from the film academy, but Portman seems determined to try. The painful trifecta of "Your Highness," "No Strings Attached" and "Thor" has found Portman acting as natural on-screen as her oaken turns in the "Star Wars" prequels. Outside of "Black Swan's" tortured overachiever, she still hasn't touched her best work in "The Professional" and "Beautiful Girls." Marvel Studios
