    They are not always shown but still they can make a good entertainment. Which are your favorites?

    Sylvester Stallone’s puzzled face when he lost Best Actor to late Peter Finch is all “What??? They gave it to some dead guy over me?!”.

    Jessica Lange is flawless in showing her “support” towards Sally Field’s 2nd win. I bet they are NOT friends. It’s truly amazing!

    And then there’s Shirley MacLaine losing to Diane Keaton and doing hilarious “yikes!, I knew it” face as she lost her 4th Oscar bid and at the time has never won.

    A few more positive examples for the Oscars:

    -Meryl Streep getting out of her chair to applaud for Cher winning for Moonstruck.    
    -Everyone (Kenneth Branagh, Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman and Robin Williams) reacting with enthusiasm upon losing to Daniel Day-Lewis for My Left Foot.
    -Likewise, Adrien Brody’s win for The Pianist eliciting cheers from everyone. Jack Nicholson’s “WOAH” and Michael Caine’s “WOW/YEAH” stand out, as does the sight of Nicholson and Nic Cage standing together, applauding gleefully.

    All of the mournful, teary eyed faces of admiration on everyone in attendance when Heath Ledger won Best Supporting Actor for ‘The Dark Knight’. Adrien Brody looked downright depressed, and Anne Hathaway was fighting back tears. Everyone looked visibly moved and it was touching to see the losing nominees look so moved, though I truly think it’s one of the only times where I’m sure they were hoping their name wasn’t called- I think there would’ve been a huge backlash against the academy if Ledger somehow lost.

    Cate Blanchett’s stunned and instantly delighted applause for Marion Cotillard stands out in my mind.

    Kathy Bates’ pissed off reaction after CZJ won was hilarious.

    -all fellow nominees to Geraldine Page’s win – Anne Bancroft’s “oh my god” then rapid, excited clapping, Jessica Lange’s turning to Sam Shepherd telling him Page won as F. Murray Abraham calls the winner the greatest actress in the english language…and Meryl Streep & Whoopi Goldberg leaping to their feet (Streep was pregnant.)

    – Jessica Lange thinking for a second she won when it was Jessica Tandy.

    – Debra Winger’s deep sigh when losing to Shirley MacLaine.

    – Sigourney Weaver’s complete defeat when Jodie Foster was announced…or was it Geena Davis?

    As far as dismayed defeated nominees go, it’s no contest:

    No wonder Glenda Jackson wasn’t particularly fond of the Oscars…

    The guy sitting next to Lauren Bacall when Juliette Binoche won says it all. One of my all-time favorite reactions.

    “No kidding? What sursprise.”

    This was the first one coming to my mind as well. A truely genuine reaction, as opposed to Queen Latifah reacting on CZJ’s win for example. I didn’t fully buy that.

    Talia Shire looked very sour both times she lost, which is even more annoying considering how she didn’t even deserve either of her nominations in those years. In the case of Shire losing to Dunaway, really all of the nominees looked pretty ticked that year. I think Spacek managed a small smile.

    Robert Duvall looked very sullen about losing to Joel Grey (though I think Joel Grey deseved it).

    Diane Ladd never particularly showed any signs of “happiness” for the winners the three times she lost.

    Then there is Madeline Kahn’s “Wow….” when Tatum O’Neal won.

    POSITIVE WISE, I definitely love Cate Blanchett’s previously mentioned shocked joy over Marion Cotillard winning.

    Holly Hunter (The Firm) seemed very genuinely happy to lose to Anna Paquin (The Piano) only to have the icing on the cake when she would later win in Lead that night (The Piano).

    THIS. And it’s even sweeter when little Paquin went up there and was damn near speechless and wide eyed in shock! I love that moment.

    The first that came to mind was Cate Blanchett’s reaction to Marion Cotillard’s win. She was shocked and then she aplauded with delight. What a gal…
