** In this same vein, Creator/JackieChan who is considered a successor to some of those influential comedians (especially to the more physically oriented ones like Buster Keaton), earning an honorary Oscar in 2016 comes off like this to some people; though for the most part it's taken in a positive light. As his body of work in general is rather unlikely to win a regular Oscar, many fans and supporters were happy that he was actually given recognition ''at all'' for his contributions to action-comedy films, stuntwork, choreography, and action scene editing.

** Its wins for Screenplay and Editing (which some thought might go to ACE award co-winner "Babel") also suggest otherwise. Some even expected "Babel" to win Best Picture and Scorsese to win Best Director, which would have been more indicative of a Consolation Award.

* It is quite common for the Gold Logie (an Australian television award) to be awarded to someone who is retiring. A good example is John Wood, who was nominated every year from 1997 until he finally won in 2006 (the year ''Series/BlueHeelers'' was cancelled). Similarly, Kate Ritchie won the award shortly after leaving ''Series/HomeAndAway''. Subverted the following year when Ian Smith, who had just left ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'' after more than 20 years, was beaten by Rebecca Gibney for her role in Packed to the Rafters.
* Kate Bell was nominated for the Silver Logie for Best New Female Talent in 2010 for a guest role in ''Series/HomeAndAway'', because both TV Week and its ''readers'' (she had to be shortlisted by the magazine and then nominated by a reader poll) apparently forgot about her regular role in ''Series/BlueWaterHigh'' in 2005 and 2008. Considering the name of the award, it overlaps with AwardCategoryFraud.

* Despite being one of the most beloved cartoon characters ever, no WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon ever won the Oscar until 1958's ''Knighty Knight Bugs''. A fine cartoon, but hardly Bugs' finest moment, especially compared to the previous year's ''WesternAnimation/WhatsOperaDoc'', which wasn't even submitted for nomination. (In fact, Bugs wasn't even a nominee for the previous ''sixteen'' years.) On the same token none of Creator/ChuckJones' most famous classic and influential cartoons have ever won an Oscar. In 1996 he was given an honorary award to make up for all those years.

* Despite [[SoOkayItsAverage middling reviews]], Jacques Audiard's ''Dheepan'' still won the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, largely due to snubs for earlier, much better films such as ''A Prophet'' and ''Rust and Bone''. Even moreso, the film beat out acclaimed front runners such as ''Son of Saul'', ''The Assassin'' and ''Carol'' for this prize.

** Arguably ''Film/TheGodfather'' was this for Marlon Brando. Pacino was nominated for Best Supporting Actor. It could be argued the nominations should have been reversed as Michael is really the protagonist and has more screen time than Vito who spends a good portion of the movie recovering from mutliple gunshots.
