The awarding of the Oscar also made people cry “scandal”!
No one is infallible in this world, including the prestigious Academy Awards committee, called upon to decide the winners every year. The controversial cases would be many more, but on 11 particular occasions there were some Stolen Oscars to actors who deserved it more: that’s who we’re talking about.
1. Oscar Deserving and Oscar Stolen Actors: Paul Dano per The oilman vs. Javier Bardem
Dano isn’t the lead in Paul Thomas Anderson’s film, but he still steals the show with the role of Paul Sunday, a man blinded by hatred for his brother. Not only did he not get the statuette, but he didn’t even finish in the nomination. In the end, Javier Bardem triumphed (author, however, of an excellent performance).
2. Amy Adams for Nocturnal animals
Amy Adams is the female Leonardo DiCaprio and someone’s “fear” is to see her win for a film that is not so epic. She deserved it thanks to her performance in Nocturnal animals.

7. Actors who deserved the Oscar: Andrew Garfield in Tick, Tick… Boom!
In 2022 Garfield gave birth to a legendary Broadway composer, honored with his second candidacy. But the victory came to Will Smith for A Winning Family – King Richardafter slapping Chris Rock.
8. Robert Downey Jr. for Charlot
Robert Downey Jr. would have had credentials to impersonate Charlie Chaplin. Unfortunately for him, he had the misfortune of being up against the (usually) formidable Al Pacino.
9. Robert De Niro for Taxi Driver
Robert De Niro’s artistic depth was not enough because Peter Finch was preferred for Qgreat power.
10. Stolen Oscars: That Time Russell Crowe Deserved It For A Beautiful Mind
The drama, the romance, a real character: every element hinted at Russell Crowe’s exploits in his role as math’s teacher who was able to defeat the schizophrenia through logic. Nonetheless, Denzel Washington won.
11. Glenn Close for… many films
