“Awards”: Pride and Prejudice Edition

16 Jan

Here I am again, counting up my least favorite actors in Jane Austen adaptations, this time for Pride and Prejudice.

Elizabeth Bennet: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1995

Fitzwilliam Darcy: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1940

Mr. Bennet: BEST: 1980, WORST: 2005

Mrs. Bennet: BEST: 2005, WORST: 1995

Jane Bennet: BEST: 2005, WORST: 1995

Mary Bennet: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1940

Kitty Bennet: BEST: 2005, WORST: 1980

Lydia Bennet: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1995

Charles Bingley: BEST: 1980, WORST: 2005

Caroline Bingley: BEST: 2005, WORST: 1995

Louisa Hurst: BEST: 1995, WORST: 2005

Mr. Hurst: BEST: 1995, WORST: 2005

Mr. Gardiner: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1940

Mrs. Gardiner: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1940

George Wickham: BEST: 1980, WORST: 2005

Colonel Fitzwilliam: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1940

Charlotte Lucas: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1995

Georgianna Darcy: BEST: 1995, WORST: 1940

Lady Catherine DeBourgh: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1995

William Collins: BEST: 1980, WORST: 1995

This one was hard as several were very close. Once again, I counted a portrayal as “worst” if the character was cut.

Totals:

1940: BEST: 0, WORST: 6

1980: BEST: 13, WORST: 1

1995: BEST: 3, WORST: 8

2005: BEST: 4, WORST: 5

So the winner in terms of the cast is 1980! 2005 was a close second in many cases. The loser is 1940 but no one takes that version seriously anyway.
