Thomas Jane's South African accent in Stander is utterly convincing. I thought he was South African. Also Alessandro Nivola convincing as a Brit.

Disappointing list. Don Cheadle and Johnny Depp didnt make the cut even though they are far better than a number of those guys on that list. I don't think switching from Australian to American or British English is such a big deal.

Did you check with with any locals as to the quality of many of these accents? I doubt it. Apart from doing American one, with is more like not doing an accent than doing one. People like Baron Cohen are clearly doing piss take generic stereotype accents that anyone can do.

In Australia the movie that would be Hugh’s native accent the foreign would be when playing wolverine or the greatest showman believe me I should know being I’m australian myself albeit one of Irish descent Irish australian is usually what I call myself or fourth generation to differentiate from my Irish born ancestors and family !

I'm English, and i always forget that Daniel Day-Lewis and Christian Bale are English. Although Gary Oldman is great at accents, I will always think of him as English because the first role I saw him in was as Sirius Black in HP. I also think Kate Winslet should get props bc I didn't realise she was English for ages bc of Titanic.
