YMMV: Peter Sarsgaard
- Award Snub: Was nominated for a Golden Globe for Shattered Glass, but failed to receive recognition from the Oscars. He also was ignored for his performance in Kinsey.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Has been singled out as this often enough to actually have comment on it:
- "When people say, 'The movie sucked, but you didn't'; that means you didn't swing hard enough. You bunted. If the movie goes down, I want to go down with it."
- The Woobie: Excels at finding the Woobiedom in almost any given character.
