Liam Neeson just plays the same ******* guy in every movie, speaking in the same, monotone, expressionless voice. He hardly deservs it.
Samuel L. Jackson is also nerly the same in every movie he's in. He's Samuel L. Jackson, basically. There are a few exceptions though, but none are academy-award worthy.
Johnny Depp - in almost every movie, he is an ecentric, pale, weirdo, basically. Nothing deserving of an academy award.
Will Smith - Most of his movies are schlock, or unsecessful oscar-bait, like Seven Pounds. There is, however, one of his movies arguably deserving of the award, and that is The Pursuit of Happyness.
Harrison Ford - Again, he has some nice, fun movies, but none of his performances deserve an academy award.
Tom Cruise - Oh, the guy who plays Tom Cruise in every movie? Yeah, he totally deserves an academy award.
John Travolta - He is a decent actor, but he has done nothing even close to deserving an academy award. Not even his role in Pulp Fiction.
Brad Pitt - He does have a few movies in which he has good performances, I must admit that, but in most it isn't really that incredible. He is more deserving of an academy award than the others I mentioned before him, though.
Gary Oldman - The only legitimate entry on that list. The problem is that there hasn't really been a movie made specifically for him to show off all his skills.

Also how can you say Seven Pounds was bad? That movie was sad as **** maybe you didn't understand it or because you're a soulless ******** . Will Smith is the only person I wanted to defend, I cried was Fresh Prince didn't continue.

I don't see how anyone can consider that shallow, pretentious piece of **** a good movie.
The pacing is bad, the "foreshadowing" is incredibly obvious and reveals the 'twist' around 15 minutes in(not that the twist is any good, mind you).
The main character is a giant douche, and a pretentious hypocrite, who thinks he is worthy enough to judge who deserves his help, and who doesn't, and who also acts like a jerk to nearly anyone he encounters, and causes massive problems for his own brother just to fulfill his misguided agenda that he thinks would redeem him somehow.
And, for some reason, the film treats the stupid, stupid things he did like heroic acts - when his suicide was, in the end, a selfish and easy way for him to get rid of his guilt, instead of living with it. Moreover, if he lived, he could have done much more to help people, and save people, than he ever did with his suicide.
Then there's the huge plothole with the stupid, stupid jellyfish suicide - the poison would have made his organs useless.
I find the movie, it's message, and the main character utterly despicable.ΕΎ
In addition to that, the movie is just kinda boring, predictable and poorly paced, with Will Smith doing over-the-top shouting scenes as obvious oscar-bait.

He didn't poison himself...It was basically electrocuting himself to death, preserving the organs in the ice water. Also he gave the organs to allow people to continue living. They needed his organs to survive, so by him giving his organs to other people, they were allowed to live, so he was trying to give 7 lives for the 7 lives that was taken from the accident.

First off, Box Jellyfish kill people with posion, not electrocution, you dense ************ .
Box Jellyfish are one of the most poisonous creatures in the world, they don't produce any electricity.
And even if it was elecetricity, that would still ruin his heart for sure.

Now, I know what the "point" was, 7 lives for 7 lives, but it was a moot point - he didn't kill himself because of that.
Eyes did not help the blind guy to live. He was living fine without eyes, it didn't save his life.
He gave organs to people he deemed "good", as he himself says at one point.
Why would he visit those people before killing himself, and even make one of them fall in love with him? Why would he choose such an extravagant way to kill himself, instead of something more simple?
Because of himself. Because of his sense of guilt. Nothing more, nothing less, that's why he did it in the end, not to help those people.
He still could have given his organs to people when he died, somewhere further down the line, and used his life to help people - but he couldn't deal with his guilt, and thus killed himself, and used those people he gave his organs to to justify his suicide and turn it into redemption.
As I said, I consider that character a despicable hypocrite, and the movie is equally despicable for presenting his actions as heroic.

Seven Pounds was the greatest movie ever made and there will never be a better movie than it.

So basically, you have no counterargument.

Keep thumbing me down because you're butthurt, you know it was a good movie you just hate yourself for saying it was bad because you realize how good it was.

Liam Neeson deserved an Oscar from his role in Schindler's List
Samuel L. Jackson deserved an Oscar from his role in Pulp Fiction
Johnny Depp deserved an Oscar from his role in Edward Scissorhands
Will Smith deserved an Oscar from his role in the movie you mentioned
Harrison Ford deserved an Oscar from his role in either Star Wars or Indiana Jones
Tom Cruise is the only one I agree that haven't done any roles yet that could've fetch him an Oscar
John Travolta deserved an Oscar from his role in Saturday Night Fever, even if he was a relatively unknown TV-actor back then
Brad Pitt deserved an Oscar from his role in either Fight Club or Se7en
Agree with what you said about Gary Oldman.

Go **** yourself.

Well sir I vehemently disagree with you and think that they are all amazing actors, all deserving of an oscar but I respect your opinion.
