* RunningGag: Hosted several UsefulNotes/AcademyAward ceremonies, but was never even so much as ''nominated'' for one; although throughout his lifetime he received five Honorary Awards. This became fodder for his routines about his movie career and Hollywood politics after BingCrosby won for ''Film/GoingMyWay''. (See "Self Deprecation" below.)

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: A mild case: his characters were never exactly ''mean,'' but they tended to be cowardly and selfish, and while the real Hope had many vices he was known as an incredibly generous man (over the course of his life he donated over a ''billion'' dollars to charity) and repeatedly took huge risks to entertain troops in war zones.
