We are back, back again, back with the Hidden Gems Movie Challenge. And honestly, I’m so damn happy for this 2021 edition because it means 2020 is over!
Fuck yeah!! More importantly, I’ve got 12 more filmographies of actors/actresses to explore and possibly find that hidden gem. But as you can probably see this year is all about my UK talents!
For those who happen to be new here, you can find out more about Hidden Gems as a movie challenge here. But I’m guessing most of you know the drill. This year I’m joined by Allie from Often Off Topic who has already shared her Hidden Gems Movie Challenge 2021 picks here. I can tell we’re both are gonna have a fun year ahead!
Since in 2020 I accidentally included no UK actors/actresses (there were 10 Americans, one was Australian and one Irish) I decided to make 2021 all about United Kingdom. (Also bringing back Keira Knightley who missed out 2020 for a sad reason). From my favourites to unexpected additions, from predictable to probably a few surprises, my Hidden Gems 2021 will have a lot going for it!
Just like last time, I will share with you the actors and actresses I picked but will keep the movies a secret. I have randomly selected the movies for each month but will reveal them once it’s their time. As always, all Hidden Gems will be posted on the last day of the month. Except in September when it will come a day early as Thursday is booked for something else.
So without further ado, let’s see the wonderful UK talents I’m going to enjoy throughout this year!

Yey for Michael Sheen, he is always so good and he has been in so many underrated movies
Yesh! I hope I got the good ones! 😀
Oh I am VERY excited for your choices this year! I’m feeling positive, we’re going to find some real gems by the end of the year. It doesn’t matter that my first watch for the challenge was absolutely dreadful, things can only get better!
YES! I mean mine got super good by November when I had Driver so… I mean, it’s a challenge for a reason, it won’t be all easy. 😀
I’m looking forward to reading all of these but I’m particularly excited about Audrey Hepburn and Michael Sheen. 😀
Oooo, yay! I’m excited for Hepburn too. It’s kind of me pushing my limits again since I don’t go for classics that often. 😀
These are great choices! I’m excited to read your posts.
Yay!! Me too! 😀
Cool challenge, and that’s a very good looking list, haha! I’ll be looking out for these posts for sure.
thank you! I’m excited as well! 😀
I can’t wait to see which movies you pick, particularly for Weisz as I love her.
Ah same, this time I sort of didn’t randomly pick but I did decide upon what to watch based on a feeling. Which can be random. 😀
Oh man! How could I have missed this fantastic idea! I’m already a month late in 2021 but can I still join? I don’t know yet if I can diligently do this every month but I sure as heck am gonna try as this sounds like a super fun idea! I love UK actors and lots of your picks here are my faves. OMG can’t wait for your post in August… mmmm Idris!! 😛
Of course!! Just let me know a few days before if you’re participating (here, Twitter, anywhere) and I’ll look out for your post. 🙂
