When it comes to feeling the tragedy of loss, not even celebrities are immune. No one likes losing, after all. But some are definitely better sports about it than others. Nowhere is this more obvious than at the illustrious Academy Awards. Thanks to this list, you can relive all the crushing Oscar loses through the years - from Leo DiCaprio and Bill Murray to Sally Field and Anne Hathaway. You'll see shock, awe, sadness, and disappointment in all of these losing faces. Except in the face of the always-classy Meryl Streep, probably because she already has enough awards to last three lifetimes.

Some losing celebrities truly look on the verge of tears, while others clap a little too hard, curse under their breath, or smile a little too widely behind their dead eyes. To revel in their momentary pain, we present the best loser faces of the Academy Awards. Don't feel too sorry for these Oscars losers. After all, it's an honor just to be nominated. Right?

Helena Bonham Carter was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 2011 for the movie The King's Speech. However, she lost to Melissa Leo for The Fighter and mysteriously still doesn't have an Oscar. Yeah, we'd probably make that face, too. But hey, it's an honor just to be nominated.
