These Actors All Went On To Win An Oscar For Their Starring Turn In A Horror Film…But Unbelievably, They Weren’t The Director’s Original Choice!

MoviePilot These Actors All Went On To Win An Oscar For Their Starring Turn In A Horror Film…But Unbelievably, They Weren’t The Director’s Original Choice! By Dean Round â‹… Posted on February 15th, 2016 at 5:43am As the Academy Awards approach, lets take a look at some actors who decided to turn down a horror movie role, and which actor got cast…going on to win an Oscar for it, and don’t forget to sound off in the comments section below!

Anjelica Huston, Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler and Debra Winger all turned down the role of…

Annie Wilkes in Misery, played by Kathy Bates

Anjelica Huston (Transparent 2014 – , Smash 2012–2013, American Dad! 2005 – ) was originally given the opportunity to take the leading role, and was apparently interested in accepting it, but ultimately she had to turn it down due to her commitment to The Grifters (1990). This shouldn’t have come as such a big disappointment for the actress, as she had already won an Oscar for her turn inPrizzi’s Honor (1985). In 1990, she was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting forEnemies: A Love Story (1989), and coincidentally, her role in 1990’s The Griftersearned her another Oscar nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Bette Midler has previously been nominated for two Oscars, both of which were for Best Actress in a Leading Role. These nominations came from For the Boys(1991) and The Rose (1979) . When reflecting on her decision to reject the role of Annie Wilkes, she said:
I turned that down because I didn’t want to saw off someone’s foot, even though the role won an Oscar.
It was stupid to say no to those pictures. As an actor you’re supposed to take jobs that will challenge you or force fans to see you in a different light. By the ’90s I wasn’t really an actor anymore. I was someone who went on the road with these gigantic concerts. I got so far away from what they told you in acting class: Do something different. Producers kept offering me the ‘Sister Act’ movie, but I said, ‘My fans don’t want to see me in a wimple.
Barbra Streisand (Modern Family 2009– ) is also reported to have turned down the role of Annie Wilkes. She probably doesn’t care that much as she has been nominated for an Oscar five times, and winning twice (Best Music, Original Song for A Star Is Born, 1976 and Best Actress in a Leading Role for Funny Girl, 1968) . Debra Winger (Boychoir 2014) was also considered for the role of Annie Wilkes, but turned it down. This role may have been the icing on the cake for the actress, however, as she has been nominated for three Oscars, but has never won (Best Actress in a Leading Role for Shadowlands 1993, Terms of Endearment 1983 andAn Officer and a Gentleman 1982).

Irene Dunne and Hedy Lamarr both turned down the role of…

…Paula Alquist in Gaslight, played by Ingrid Bergman

Gaslight (1944), follows the story of Paula Alquist (Ingrid Bergman), a young entertainer who lives with her aunt Alice. Following her aunts murder, Paula is sent away to school. A decade later, Paula returns with her new husband Gregory Anton (Oscar nominated Charles Boyer). Setting up a new life in her aunts home, which she has now inherited, Paula starts to feel isolated by her husband, and as a result, she becomes closer to an admirer named Brian Cameron ( Joseph Cotten). The film was originally bought by Columbia Pictures so they could use it as a vehicle for their main star Irene Dunne, who ended up turning the role down. Unfortunately for Dunne, this may have been the ultimate role that won her an Oscar, having been nominated five times, but never winning. She was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role in I Remember Mama (1948), Love Affair (1939),The Awful Truth (1937), Theodora Goes Wild (1936) and Cimarron (1931). After Columbia Pictures sold the rights of the film to MGM, they wanted to cast Hedy Lamarr as the lead Paula, but she also turned the role down. This may have been the worst decision by an actor/actress on this list, as the most prestigious award that she won was a Golden Apple Award for Least Cooperative Actress, ouch.

Emma Thompson, Geena Davis and Michelle Pfeiffer all turned down the role of…
