Oscar history is littered with great films and performances that didn't go home with a statuette. Here are just 25 that we think stand out.
Jack Nicholson is often knocked for only playing one role: himself. But those who say that never have seen the slow-burning menace he brings to Jack Torrance in "The Shining." Apparently the Academy didn't either, as Nicholson received the same number of Oscar nods for the role as did Stanley Kubrick's 1980 movie itself: zero.
