15 Stars Who Turned Down Oscar-Winning Roles!

Screenwriter William Goldman once famously said, “nobody knows anything,” referring to how Hollywood has zero idea what will be good and what will be a train wreck.

So when an actor reads for a role in an upcoming movie, there’s no possible way they can predict if the part is worthy of an Oscar or not.

You just have to go with your gut. And for these 15 movie stars, their gut was DEAD WRONG!

We’ve put together some of the celebs who turned DOWN the chance at an Academy Award-winning performance.

What role did Julia Roberts say “no thanks” to that could have earned her Oscar #2??

Did Anne Hathaway miss out on winning TWO Academy Awards in one year??

And you won’t believe who producers originally wanted to play Forrest, Forrest Gump!

Ready to see who wishes they had a time machine so they could go back and say "YES, YES, A MILLION TIMES YES", to these Oscar-winning roles?

This is almost as outrageous as Mel Gibson himself!

Oksana Grigorieva, the ex-wife of the Lethal Weapon actor, is losing out on the last installments of their divorce settlement, all because of an interview she gave Howard Stern!

After being physically, mentally, and emotionally abused by Mel (how can anyone forget those phone recordings?), Oksana got out of their marriage just in time!

But part of their split was a confidentiality agreement, which a judge has ruled Miz Grigorieva broke by blabbing about Mel on the radio!

She agreed not to say ANYTHING about her former hubby in public. So what big secrets did she spill to Howard?

Um…pretty much NOTHING!

During her interview, it was pretty much Howard who said anything bad about Mel. Oksana remarked at one point that he was just too painful to even talk about and kept her mouth shut!

Award season fast approacheth, and with all the accolades being handed out, there's always a few boos to boot.

The annual Razzie Awards are the stick to the golden carrot of the Oscars, celebrating not the best of the year in film, but the worst!

This year, the pre-nomination ballot is a star-studded affair.

Lindsay Lohan, Sofia Vergara, and Kate Bosworth are leading the actress' nominations, while Liam Hemsworth, Sylvester Stallone, and Robert DeNiro are strong contenders among the men.

Remember, the movies and performances on this ballot didn't connect with everyone, but it's all subjective. One critic's trash can be another's guilty pleasure!

And there can be only one worst.

But you can see all the potential Razzie nominees …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
