We Bet You Thought These Stars Already Won An Oscar

20 Jun

After 85 years of dispensing awards, the Oscars have become something of a measuring stick for judging, and then recognizing, the best and brightest talents in Hollywood. But with so many great movies, performances and behind-the-scenes efforts, and so few slots for nominations, it comes as little surprise that more than a handful of great accomplishments go unrecognized each year.

But after two years? Five? Ten? It seems impossible to think that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences would fail to find some reason why certain industry icons deserve to take home one of those little gold statuettes.

And yet, Celebuzz has found not two, or five, or ten, but 25 performers and filmmakers who have never won an Oscar – and in a few cases, have never received nominations.

While the most egregious oversight in Oscar history might be never awarding a Best Director statuette to Stanley Kubrick, the filmmaker did in fact receive recognition in 1968 for Visual Effects for his work on 2001: A Space Odyssey. And Alfred Hitchcock, another industry luminary, received an honorary Oscar, but was never recognized for an individual film, despite receiving nominations for Psycho and other classic suspense thrillers.

But more recently, actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, Liam Neeson and Johnny Depp have failed to win awards against their colleagues and contemporaries, regardless of the fact that they’ve given some of the most unique, interesting, and perhaps most importantly, memorable performances in cinema history.

Talk a look at Celebuzz’s list of 25 stars who never took home Oscars, and then let us know: who do you think deserves an award the most? Leave your comments below for further discussion!

JOHN TRAVOLTA And OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN Reunite In Corny “Grease”-Inspired Music Video For “I Think You Might Like It” (VIDEO)

7 Dec

Recent entertainment news has learned that JOHN TRAVOLTA and OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN have reunited in a corny “Grease”-inspired music video for their newest single, “I Think You Might Like It,” off their soon-to-be-released Christmas album, “This Christmas.”

Almost 35 years after they starred as Danny and Sandy in “Grease,” John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John decided to work together again for an upcoming holiday album titled “This Christmas” and have just released the music video for its first upbeat single, “I Think You Might Like It.”

We think it was aptly-titled too because you might like it-if you are a huge fan of the pair and homemade videos, that is.

The terrifyingly low-budget “Grease”-inspired music video features the allegedly gay actor and Olivia reuniting, singing and line dancing (seriously) as well as familiar elements from the movie-the black ensembles and an aqua-colored Greased Lightning. Travolta‘s kids and wife Kelly Preston‘s appearances and the cheesy family scenes didn’t help either.

At least it sounds like it’s going to be a not-so-bad duet-filled album that will help raise donations for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre and the Jett Travolta Foundation.

Olivia said about the album last month:

“We all felt a wonderful, joyful energy while recording this album. We want to make a lot of people smile and happy.”

We sure hope you like drowning in cheese.

Do you “like it”?
