You’d think that winning an Oscar would be the crowning achievement in the career of an actor. All the long hours, crazy makeup, press tours and who-knows what other sacrifices they had to make for their role, was to walk on that stage and accept that little gold man. So you’d think they’d take better care of their stuff.
These actors, either through their own actions, or by trusting in others, are now down one Oscar (some even have lost 2 – looking at you, Brando). For some, it’s the only one they ever had the pleasure of receiving, and now there’s an empty spot in their trophy case. Need to take better care of your stuff, thesps.
I’ll probably never win one of these guys, but if I do, I’m sure I’ll keep a close eye on my Oscar. You know, rub it every day, take it for walks, snuggle with it at night… you know, normal, Oscar-related stuff.
