10 Hollywood Stars Who Got REALLY Angry When They Didn't Win An Oscar

9. Burt Reynolds

The owner of one of history's mightiest moustaches, Burt Reynolds was a superstar in the 1970s and early '80s.

His macho swagger made movies like The Cannonball Run, The Longest Yard, and Smokey and the Bandit huge hits and Reynolds quite the favourite with the ladies.

After a career drop off for a number of years, Burt and his tache were back in Paul Thomas Anderson's 1997 film Boogie Nights. His performance as adult filmmaker Jack Horner earned him heaps of praise and his first ever Oscar nomination.

He was up against stiff competition from the likes of Anthony Hopkins, Greg Kinnear, and Robin Williams. Sadly, said competition was too stiff, as Williams took the title of Best Supporting Actor.

Yes, we did use the word "stiff" twice just after mentioning a film about porn. Grow up.

Speaking of immaturity, Reynolds' was on full display after his loss was announced. Instead of graciously conceding, he furrows his brows and offers the most inauthentic slow clap of all time.

You can understand the man's frustrations, but it's Robin Williams for crying out loud! How can you be mad at the genie of the lamp?
