Rosie Perez was not happy when Anna Paquin won
She was probably in a state of agitation. I’ve heard her tell (quite comically) the story of how she went to the bathroom and then they had shut the doors and wouldn’t let her back in. She had to argue with the ushers that her category was next. They eventually let her in and she got to her seat in time.April 27, 2020 at 9:31 am #1203449885

Kate Winslet almost seemed on the verge of bitter tears when losing to Helen Hunt. Maybe that was also aided by how Hunt said Dench deserved it more. (Although Winslet now looks back on that performance as bad)
I think people in general tend to misunderstand Winslet reaction when losing to Hunt. If i’m not mistaken she was only 4th in the odds, so I don’t think she expected to win. Dench was the favourite followed by Hunt and Bonham Carter. I think she was just surprised that Hunt won and not Dench. Like you said, even Hunt was surprised that Dench wasn’t the winner.April 27, 2020 at 7:48 pm #1203450661
Lorraine Bracco for Goodfellas is an interesting one to watch. She keeps her eyes on the floor and only looks up after the announce Whoopi Goldberg. I don’t know if she’s really nervous that she stood a chance or if she just doesn’t like seeing herself on the monitor.April 28, 2020 at 3:02 am #1203451040
I’ve read many times that Eddie Murphy left the ceremony right after he lost Best Supporting Actor for Dreamgirls in 2007. No videos though.
He was a lock in this category, not my favorite but Alan Arkin was 5th on my list personally. Djimon Hounsou or Jackie Earle Haley should’ve won.May 1, 2020 at 10:16 pm #1203458262

I think Hunt was the heavy favorite to win (she won SAG.) She was just being humble towards Dench. Winslet’s whole run with Titanic was strange. She supposedly hated making the film so much she wasn’t going to promote it. Then it became this phenomenon and she changed her mind and hopped on board with it. I don’t think she’s crying because she lost. She’s just touched by Hunt’s speech.
If she wanted to cry it should have been in 1995 when she won SAG but lost the Oscar to Mira Sorvino.May 2, 2020 at 2:29 am #1203458470
Martin Scorsese losing for The Last Temptation of Christ to Barry Levison for Rain Main looked a bit cranky I recall. However, I doubt Scorsese thought he had a chance of winning (given the controversy surrounding the film its a credit to the Academy membership that he was nominated). Probably had something else on his mind at the time.May 25, 2020 at 9:53 pm #1203500869
Ellen Burstyn reaction to Glenda Jackson in 1974 Oscars. “No sh*t!” Always makes me laughMay 26, 2020 at 6:40 am #1203501425
I loved his reaction and he looked genuinely impressed. If anything Scorsese, Phillips and Tarantino are the ones who gave cold reactions
I wonder if they were all operating under the belief that they were in second, and seeing the frontrunner lose caused them all to realize they were third at best.May 26, 2020 at 7:34 am #1203501512
Anjelica Huston looked quite salty over Whoopi’s win, and it wasn’t even her category! Pressed over co-star Annette’s loss? Doubtful.
I suspect had someone other than Whoopi won she’d feel her odds were stronger to win her category.May 26, 2020 at 9:36 pm #1203502850
The oddest reaction has to be Valerie Perrine losing to Ellen Burstyn. Why is she so shocked? Burstyn was a favorite to win. People in general were a lot less polished back then. Lots of people say something to the person next to them or react in some way. Now it is all just polite smiles and clapping.
