Why is it not justifiable? She brings the quality of the entire film down with her poor acting imo. It's not like she's receiving huge amounts of critical acclaim for her turn in Cloud Atlas.
Plus, she's also had 7 consecutive flops, disappointments, or unreleased films in a row so it's not like she has a fanbase (she's a tabloid celebrity not a movie star). She's even one of the only main cast who hasn't been in a hit since X3.
Many of the other actors had underwritten roles in the original trilogy but no one else gave such an awful performance. They should take her Oscar back!
