7. An Oscar Denied?: Evita (1996)
When Evita released to rave reviews in 1996, it was assumed that Madonna’s moment of cinematic glory had finally arrived. There couldn’t be a better role that suited her skill sets. Madge even garnered top awards at the Golden Globes. There was a buzz that she was to win the Oscar for Best Actress. Sadly, that never happened. A snub from the Academy was something that many critics still believe was unfair to Madge, for at least a nomination would have helped. A year later, someone as blonde as Kim Basinger won an Oscar for a blink-and-miss role in LA Confidential.
