Oscar Snubs – CURTIS

OSCAR SNUBS ( TONY CURTIS - SWEET SMELL OF SUCCUESS )

TONY CURTIS in “SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS” ( 1957 )  

I ‘would’ say for Tony’s pretty boy looks alone he should have won an Oscar, but I’m not that kind of Maven. Lets face it, when you work opposite Lancaster, you have to work your butt off…and Tony did. His Sidney Falco is a non-stop energizer bunny, making deals, double-crossing clients, pimping his girlfriend, selling his soul down the river, smoking, phoning, running, lying and doing whatever he can to get an item in the paper. He lived by night like a mole and would throw anyone under the bus. He was dark. He was magnificent.
