Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando famously turned down an Oscar for Best Actor in 1973, for his role in "The Godfather." To protest the portrayal of Native Americans by Hollywood, he sent an activist, Sacheen Littlefeather, to the ceremony in his place. Brando also won an Oscar in 1955 for "On the Waterfront." Otherwise, he was nominated and lost six times, including for his roles in "A Streetcar Named Desire" (left) and "Last Tango in Paris."
