RDJ’s British accents for Chaplin and Sherlock Holmes were fucking spot on. But he honestly lost me with the Aussie accents. They sound a bit too forced and slip in and out of more of a New Zealand accent.

No offence to the amazing Bobby D, but ask an Australian about Australian accents. His is good but far from perfect. Kate Winslet has done two films as an Australian - Holy Smoke with Harvey Keitel, and The Dressmaker. In the first her Australian accent is excellent. In the second it is perfect. No small achievement - just ask Meryl Streep after her butchering of our accent in "dingo's got my baby".

Ooh Hollywood and their typical Russian accent. Not all people speak like that. It’s stereotype so the audience can recognize that the person speaking should a Russian. Is the same with the German accents.

How come Cohen is in this list? For making Borat accent? Accent of the country he has never been to, playing a nation he doesn't know sh** about? The one who made this video is uneducated id**t. Before you make any video, be so kind to use google at least... Using your logic put Jim Carry into this list for making animal voices (noises), because they are so real, someone should create an animal vocabulary...

I would agree with all but one of these films, I really can't watch Blood Diamond without cringing. I do think Leo is one of the best actors out there (sorry I know I'm contradicting myself), overall though good selection.

You mention Robert Downey Junior in Tropic Thunder, but his Australian accent is positively shit-house. He sounds NOTHING like an Australian. Which brings up another point. Australians watch so much American TV and Film that many young here people speak with an American accent now. Doing an American accent isn't that hard for a lot of Australians and Hugh Jackman shouldn't be on this list. As for the fact that you haven't included Meryl Streep, who is EASILY the best actor who can pull off foreign accents - for example, Lindy Chamberlains mix of Australian and Kiwi - are you being sexist or stupid?

An accent is a regional variation of a mother tongue, so many of these are not accents, they're mockeries of people for whom English would be a second language. Oh and Americans cannot do non American accents - except Mortensen, Alan Tudyk and James Marsters. They're all fine.

ChristophWaltz's french is shockingly amazing as his austrian is very well known. im more impressed with hisIQ the way he talks in interviews is truly amazing, incredible and so out of this world. before inglorious basterds. im glad i became fond of his latter movies. Waltz won two oscars after his breakout role. thanks to tarantino 😁✌

Not gonna argue on whether some actors deserves to be nr. 2 on this list instead of 5 etc. As long as Oldman is 1, then I'm happy 🙂 But, I have no idea of, what Brad Pitt is doing on this list. Has he ever played anything else than an American (and if someone writes Mickey in Snatch, I'm gonna puke)? Not that there's anything wrong with it, I just don't see what he's doing on a list like this
