10 Most Bitter Oscar Reactions

Some of these are hilarious. I don't remember Samuel L. Jackson being so pissed at losing. It's not like he ever had a shot at winning anyway.

Nothing beats seeing Lauren Bacall shooting daggers when she lost to Binoche. Unlike a lot of those other wins, this wasn't expected, and she was mightily pissed. Karma, bitch. Karma.

Field, Williams, Kidman, Paltrow, Landau, Zeta-Jones were all shoo-ins. The actors who were pissed were idiots for allowing themselves to looked pissed off. They're actors; learn to mask your disappointment.

Why would Bill Murray expect to beat Sean Penn? Some of those actress nominees were pretty weak. As far as Samuel L. Jackson, I would have given that award to either Gary Sinise or Chazz Palimentari. I didn't think Jackson was all that great; in fact Pulp Fiction is one of the most overrated pieces of crap ever.

"Oh please" yourself, R17, Landau's performance was astonishing in Ed Wood. The film itself is Burton's masterpiece.

If you want to quibble you could say the Academy was rewarding Martin Landau for his previous criminally-overlooked performance in 'Crimes And Misdemeanours' much in the same way Heath Ledger won for playing The Joker and not for his Ennis.

God, Sean Connery was really stupid to announce the winner as "Cathy", meaning Catherine Zita Jones when Kathy Bates was also nominated. So of course Kathy was confused for a second, who the hell had ever heard Catherine called Cathy before. Inconsiderate boob.

r18, Juliette Binoche has hardly been resting on her laurels since that win; she just hasn't been in many American films. Just off the top of my head, she starred in at least three Michael Haneke films and a dozen or so other well-received pictures. At her comparatively young age, she's kind of already out-acted Bacall, who really is only in a handful of great or even good pictures.

Sean actually said "Catherine."

I know that Zellweger won the SAG but wasn't Kidman always the favorite for The Hours? I remember reading at the time that Zellweger didn't go to the Miramax party for Chicago because she was still angry because she lost.

When you are winning everything and everybody is telling you that you are the best and then you lose, THAT must be hard (think Viola Davis or Raul Esparza at the Tonys). I get their faces of disappointment but not when people like Samuel Jackson, Bates, Kirkland, who were never the favorites, lose.

Samuel L. Jackson is still pissed over his Oscar loss:

[quote]He lost to Martin Landau’s Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood. When I asked if he thought he should have won instead Jackson was refreshingly candid.

[quote]“Yes I do. I really don’t know many people who can not only remember Ed Wood but remember what Martin Landau did in it,” he said but added he was told it was more of a life achievement kind of award. “You know they were saying ‘Martin’s been nominated a few times and you’re going to be around for a while. Don’t worry.’ I was thinking I didn’t know it was a thing where if you get nominated for a few times you automatically get one. I thought it was supposed to be about impact.”

by Anonymousreply 3112/29/2012

Jackson must live in a bubble. Landau got raves and immediate Oscar talk as soon as Ed Wood was released. He was the one sure shot win that year. Jackson is clueless.

That first line is pretty insulting to Martin.

I think Binoche is the most interesting actress of today. I can watch her in anything. She sometimes fails, but even her failures are more interesting than the predictable "accomplishments" from other actresses. And while I love Huppert I wish she would stray from her cool persona a bit more.

If you want to see exciting acting watch Cache or Certified Copy (the guy playing Man was dreadful, though).

The sorest loser of all time is Bette Midler. She has never shut up about it and had to lose to Sally Field.

Fernanda Montenegro was really bitter over losing to Gwyneth:

[quote] Fernanda Montenegro doesn't hate Gwyneth Paltrow because she's thin and beautiful. She just thinks that's why the 26-year-old whippersnapper whipped her in the Best Actress race. Referring to the Shakespeare in Love star as "this romantic figure, thin, pure, virginal," the 69-year-old Montenegro declared, "They don't have much of this type of actress in America." An Oscar for Paltrow, then, "is an investment," according to Montenegro.

And she was bitter about her movie losing to Life is Beautiful for Best Foreign Language film:

[quote] The actress groused, "It didn't deserve to win. I think even Benigni recognized this." "As a film it was weak...I thought it was just him that won, not the film itself."

Bill Murray was the worst sore loser of all time:

But even if Paltrow hadn't won, Montenegro didn't stand a chance, either. The race was between Paltrow and Blanchett. So one of those two would've won over Montenegro. What would she have said about Blanchett then?

Bacall is not an acting legend. One nomination, and for a POS movie. She's remembered more for being Bogart's wife than any film acting. Binoche has done a lot of French cinema (being a French actress and all).

L. Bacall's Oscar wasn't competitive, and it wasn't even handed to her during the telecast. What a moment of glory!

And Binoche... seriously? She received a nomination for Best Acress just five years later (for the hit movie 'Chocolat'), and has starred in important auteur films such as 'Cache', 'Certified Copy' (for which she won the acting prize in Cannes), and many others.

She's an international superstar, and, unlike Bacall, a real ACTRESS.

R64, since her Oscar loss, Bacall has actually been in some interesting arthouse projects (Birth, Dogville, The Walker). I can't quite claim any of them are particularly good, but these aren't exactly the lazy paycheck projects that would be inside her comfort zone.

Her IMDb page also lists several voice roles in animated films, usually as a witch. That, however, is completely within Bacall's comfort zone.

For both Eddie Murphy and Lauren Bacall this would be their only chance at ever winning an Oscar.

Maybe that means something, but I am not sure.

Jennifer Hudson should have not received anything but a gift bag, but that is not the topic here.

These are very superficial and completely unscientific ways of viewing people.

Not everyone has a natural smiley countenance. What people call in youth as a sexy look can maybe be later read as a "bitch" face.

I have never really understood that phrase before, but I understand a sour countenance.

I am sexy mean looking unless I am laughing or very happy with whom I am speaking with. I am not a bitch, nor sour. Part "genetics", part reserve. Much more illuminating to see extreme differences in facial expressions on a turn of a dime or a phrase or a loss.

Your projections are pretty reductive and there is nothing less attractive than a grinning idiot, IMO.

What is wrong with distinction and even haughtiness in a face. Nothing. I like loveliness and an open countenance too but not everyone's features operate that way. We can't all be waiters.

There are of course bitches and bitchy expressions, but leave it at that.

Genetics was your point, but I think you were not really speaking of that or I would not take up the point.

He knew he would probably never get back there again. As for Midler, her Oscar quips are her usual well executed comic takes: "For years I have waited for you to call and say you made a mistake... But do I hold a grudge, no. My mind retains nothing" or whatever. and she said all that on the Oscars itself.

By the way, Sally Kirkland actually had a chance even in that ultra-competitive year -- because she was great in the film AND playing an actress whom every other actor could relate to. Seems weird now that she went nowhere but she wasn't deluded thinking she had a shot. (Holly Hunter is the one who says they were scraping the bottom of the barrel nominating her that year, ha).

She was a powerhouse in The Rose. Her jibes at Sally Field are good natured - in her awful sitcom there was a running joke about Sally Field being offered things before Bette/being present at something. They should have got her on the show.

Collective response:

Sissy Spacek was never considered a beauty in the Hollywood way and is not matronly even now. A good looking woman, very.

Bette Midler did bemoan humorously about losing the Oscar but protested too much and too long, going on about the loss for the Rose (she never should have won) on so many talk show appearances for the next 30 years. Bette is always funny in her delivery if not in intent.

Glenn Close in Dangerous Liasons is one of the most incredible performances ever on film and I don't even know who was in the running but she should have won. She has many Meryl-like lifeless performances to her credit as well, but DL is better than anything Streep has ever done.

Jody Foster deserved her Oscar for Silence of the Lambs and it is tiresome to hear people say otherwise. All these old bitch queens who love Bette Davis out here and Jodie was close in that film with the Demme direction to Davis under Wyler.

Sissy Spacek is just great and special and when nominated for Crimes of the Heart, folks thought she was cute. She is so not a showy looking actress but look closer, she is both good and great. Her playing Babe is something to enjoy. I could watch her everyday.

Jessica Lange is the one who spent too many frustrated years on the farm.

Sally Kirkland was just too warn out which is sometimes different than playing warn out.

Michelle Pfeifer is one of the most underrated and unappreciated actresses of the last 30 years. Her performance in yes, What Lies Beneath is as good as anything in an Ingmar Bergman film. Yeah and she should have won supporting in Dangerous Liaisons too.

r120

Oh, I like Bette better than most of the guys out here, but why would she keep up the same grudgy "good natured" joke for thirty years. Trust me, she is pissed and resentful about not winning the Oscar. Her performance is a mix of Jagger and Tina Turner and most especially Stevie Nicks, but it will forever be seen as a weak Joplin. We all know Bette's sing song and saddy talk "acting" voice by now, and she was lucky to be nominated before she was found out.

Next time, I will write about the dudes.

Glenn lost to Jodie Foster ("The Accused"). Also in the running that year were Meryl Streep ("A Cry in the Dark"), Sigourney Weaver ("Gorillas in the Mist") and Melanie Griffith ("Working Girl"). Thank Christ Glenn didn't lose to Griffith, b/c that would've been painful after losing the previous year to Cher.

Midler must have been on drugs the entire awards season in 1979. Sally Field was always going to win the Oscar; Bette made up the numbers.

r124 - That was an incredibly tough year. Any of them could have won, even the usually execrable Melanie Griffith.

The first time I saw "The Accused", my reaction was "Meh". It took the third time seeing it that I saw how remarkable Jodie was in the movie. It's not a showy performance, but it could have been. She's subtle, but heartbreaking.

I like Binoche and all especially in Blue but she is considered 'the Julia Roberts of France'....so its kind of hilarious to see her overpraised as a thespian when her reputation is more of a crossover 'sellout' with a nice face in Europe.

I never liked Moonstruck either, but I will defend Cher as an actress. She's a lot better at acting than singing. It's her personality that's kept her career afloat. If she hadn't been a 70s tv icon, she would've ended up broke long ago.

by Anonymousreply 13512/30/2012

R120, from the wiki page for The Rose:

"...the story of a self-destructive 1960s rock star who struggles to cope with the constant pressures of her career..."

Okay. So if she wasn't playing Janis Joplin then, erm, why wasn't a Joplin character featured to authenticate the period? And wouldn't her character, Rose, have seemed just silly competing with Janis Joplin? So who was she?

The wiki page goes on to say (of course):

"The story is loosely based on the life of singer Janis Joplin. Originally titled Pearl, after Joplin's nickname, and the title of her last album, it was fictionalized after her family declined to allow the producers the rights to her story.[2] It was written by Bill Kerby, and Bo Goldman from a story by Bill Kerby..."

Bo Goldman. That script should've been A LOT better.

So yes, anyway, some of us did watch the film. It was shit.

by Anonymousreply 13612/30/2012

R132 is, of course, being ridiculous.

Also, if you're Italian-American, Moonstruck has a sort of built in appeal. And, even with that, it's still about 100x better than My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I mean, suck it haterz, Moonstruck is a decent film.

The thing about Cher's win is that she'd been around long enough to know a lot of the Academy members, her support came from the generational top on down. Which is only to say, that's why her win - which seemed very well deserved at the time - dated so quickly. And her interest waned. Plus, she did a ton of publicity that year, Moonstruck was one of three films she released that year plus she had a hit record out - it was a BIG year for her. AND she had her little "narrative" with the Academy that she'd been spinning for a few years.

Even without that, Moonstruck still holds up. It's hilarious.

It does not speak for me. And it debases the name it applies to itself. But I am not litigious.

And I always send all the other actresses fruit baskets when I win an Oscar. I have a volume discount. But no one ever sent me one, after 14 losses between and before the wins. Cher sent me something, but since it is not legal in most states, I shall not describe it. It was appreciated.

And, for the record, they ALL are pretty. Well, Betty Bacall WAS pretty. And they ALL - me included - were disappointed to lose. And in a world where I share the pinnacle of Oscar success with Walter Brennan's three awards, it really is pointless to yammer about worthiness. We're worthy because we win. We're worthy because we're nominated. And we're worthy because we're not nominated. It's an industry of fucking worthiness.
