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.
Gary Oldman practically became Sid Vicious in "Sid and Nancy" but wasn't even nominated for the performance. Instead, Best Actor in 1987 went to Paul Newman in "The Color of Money," Newman's only win in nine acting nominations. Oldman would have to wait until 2012 for his first Oscar nomination, Best Actor for "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy."
