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?
Minnie was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 1997 for her role in Good Will Hunting, but lost to Kim Basinger in L.A. Confidential. Her big, sardonic "wow" reads less like, "I'm genuinely happy for you," and more like, "How the hell did that happen?!"
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.
