The weirdest Oscars nominees ever
10. bague argent carré femme Hermione Baddeley: best supporting actress nominee, Room at the Top
It took just over two minutes of screen time for Baddeley to nab a nomination for her work in Jack Clayton’s 1959 drama. The current holder boucles doreille cartier trinity of the title for smallest bague argent quartz fumé boucles doreille ginkgo biloba amount of screen time resulting in an bague argent femme pas chère actual prize is Beatrice Straight, who won in the same category in 1977 for a performance in Network totalling just under six minutes. “Everyone knew Boulle bague argent rosé pas cher couldn’t speak English, let alone write it,” said Hollywood historian Larry Ceplair.
8. Kazuhiro Tsuji and Rick Baker: best makeup bague argent egyptienne nominee, Norbit
It is not that Tsuji and Baker, both masters in their field, didn’t deserve this nomination. But the idea that the woeful, fat tastic 2007 bague argent forme gourmette Eddie Murphy comedy can be referred to for all time as “Academy Award nominee Norbit” makes the heart sink. But there can be no bague argent saphir rose controversy, surely, over Tsuji’s nomination this year for turning Gary Oldman into boucles doreille ted lapidus Churchill in Darkest Hour.
7. Kenneth Branagh: best adapted screenplay nominee, Hamlet
Branagh’s four hour 1996 version of Hamlet comprising bague argent taille 48 femme the full first folio supplemented by the second quarto worked more as filmed theatre than cinema, give or take some gimmicky guest stars (Ken Dodd as Yorick, anyone). Perverse, then, to single out the script for a nomination when Branagh seemed merely to have decanted the play into Final Draft.
6. bague argent pyrite George Bernard Shaw: best adapted screenplay joint winner, Pygmalion
Thirteen years after winning the Nobel prize for literature, Shaw added an Oscar (shared with Ian Dalrymple, Cecil Lewis and WP Lipscomb) to his mantelpiece in 1938 for his hand bague argent et boucles doreille creole homme corail in the film adaptation of his bague argent pierre carrée 1913 play Pygmalion. It would, in turn, inspire future Oscar winner My Fair Lady and nominee Pretty Woman.
5. Roderick Jaynes: best editing nominee, Fargo and No Country For Old Men
The Coen brothers edit their films under the pseudonym “Roderick Jaynes” and have even concocted a backstory for him as a crusty veteran of British bague argent épaisse cinema. On the occasion of their imaginary editor’s second nomination, in 2008, Joel Coen doubted that their man would show up at the ceremony: “He’s very old late 80s, early 90s so I don’t know if boucles doreille croix pendante he’d make the trip.”
4. Jaye Davidson: best supporting actor nominee, The Crying Game
Not an unlikely nominee bague argent pierre brute so much as a walking spoiler. Anybody who had not, at that point in 1993, already seen Neil Jordan’s playful, gender fluid thriller might wonder why the main female face in the film was up against the likes of Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino and eventual winner Gene Hackman.
3. PH Vazak: best adapted screenplay nominee, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes
Unlike Jaynes, PH Vazak was real, all nach boucles doreille right. Had he won in 1984, however, he would probably have been happier with a handful of choc drops than an Oscar, since in reality he was a Hungarian sheepdog belonging to Robert Towne.
2. Charlie and Donald Kaufman: best adapted screenplay winners, Adaptation
Charlie Kaufman already had a screenwriting Oscar nomination for Being John Malkovich, but he shared his second, for the fiendishly clever 2002 comedy Adaptation, with his twin brother, bague argent bretagne Donald. Except that there grosse bague argent et nacre was no Donald.

1. Jean Paul Sartre: best story nominee, The Proud and the Beautiful
Until 1957 there were three screenwriting categories: best original screenplay, best adapted screenplay and best story. It was in the latter section, in the final year of that prize, that the philosopher Jean Paul Sartre found bague argent homme taille 55 himself nominated for The Proud and the Beautiful, bague argent una storia based on Typhus, a screenplay he wrote in 1944. Another oddity about the Sartre film: it includes bague argent mobius a rare acting appearance from surrealist film maker Luis Buuel…
