Default TOP Stars missed the Oscars!



Some Like It Hot (1959)
Nobody's perfect,as Joe E. Brown as Osgood Fielding uttered, American screwball comedy got its most famous finishing line. About two out-of-luck jazz musicians posing as women, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon were excellent in their comic timing and they had the help from the timeless sensuality of Marilyn Monroe. Director Billy Wilder to

The Searchers (1956)
John Ford has many great films to his credit with formidable names like Stagecoach, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Young Mr. Lincoln, My Darling Clementine and The G****s of Wrath among others. And he has won many Oscars too. But the most admired piece in his filmmaking career, The Searchers was not even considered for a single nomination by the Academy. Telling the story of John Wayne as a middle-aged Civil War veteran and Jeffrey Hunter as his nephew searching for the abducted niece, this film explored the theme of racial prejudice and ***ism shot in the gorgeous untamed wilderness and touched a deep chord with a generation of filmmakers including David Lean, Martin Scorsese, Paul Schrader, Steven Spielberg, Jean-Luc Godard, Wim Wenders, and George Lucas among others.

King Kong (1933)
If the genre of monster movie is a great proposition for business to Hollywood, it owes a great deal to the giant ape of silver screen. Retelling the age-old fable of beauty and the beast, King Kong told the story of an ancient monster dying in the city of New York only because he wanted to possess a beautiful blonde. Many films are great because of the director at the helm of affairs, but this film has such raw energy in the concept itself that it would have emerged winner at anyone’s hands. As a standalone film, it has a little bit of everything—action, adventure, horror, sci-fi, drama, love, even humor—and when you combine all, catastrophic destruction.

Citizen Kane (1941)
That stained sign on a black wire fence is the first thing we see in Citizen Kane and thus began the era of modernism in cinema. Orson Welles's story of Charles Foster Kane, a young idealistic newspaperman altered by scandal and vice into an isolated and remorseful old man, gasping that enigmatic word with his last breath has become a true cinematic legend. Released in 1941, the film was quite ahead of its time since the Academy awarded it only one trophy - Best Writing (Original Screenplay). Over the years, it has been awarded the status of greatest American film ever made by AFI along with countless other critics%u2019 polls worldwide.

Psycho (1960)
Bates Motel. Janet Leigh under her shower. And we got one of the most famous scenes in history and the most popular piece from the master of suspense. Alfred Hitch****'s Psycho was first of its kind in many ways-it ****ed the lead character in the first 45 minutes leaving viewers to fend for themselves, introduced drag as a horror element, broke censor's toilet taboo and its unique advertisements of not allowing audiences in the theatre once the film started.
