    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".

    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...

    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.

    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
