Fans of the Academy Awards live for surprises, and nothing is more surprising than a comedic performance being recognized among a sea of serious Oscar-bait. Whenever a funny guy or gal receives a nomination (or even more rare, a WIN), it’s like a breath of fresh air is infused into the awards season. Think Melissa McCarthy in “Bridesmaids” or Robert Downey Jr. in “Tropic Thunder.” But alas, sometimes these campy roles are snubbed by the Oscars. In our photo gallery above, we highlight 10 examples of campy portrayals that would have made ridiculously fun inclusions in the canon of Academy-nominated performances.

Certain rules apply when you’re hosting a benefit at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. Cursing is not allowed. And nudity, it should go without saying, isn’t either.
But when it comes to Halloween, especially in New York, rules tend to fly out the window. And so Bishop Andrew M.L. Dietsche had to intervene Monday for Bette Midler’s annual Hulaween benefit by preventing Dita Von Teese, the burlesque star, from performing her provocative act.

Bette Midler On Movies She’d Like To Make: Well, I’d like to do something where I get the guy. I’d like to have a sexy part before my legs go. In other words, a relationship picture. I’d also love to do a picture with Dustin Hoffman. I see him once in awhile. We’re friends, and we look like brother and sister. I’d love to do a picture with him and my husband.” (Reading Eagle, December 24, 1988) – Bette Midler: Bootleg Betty, Martin, and The Hoffmans
