When an aspiring actor, professional athlete or musician gets in the limelight, their career takes off, they earn praise and fame it only makes sense their heads get bigger. After paying their dues and gaining critical acclaim, this list of celebrities expected to win, but didn’t. And the hissy fits made them come off as celebrity sore losers who have already won so much, but are now being greedy, ungrateful and selfish for their success.
It comes as no surprise (or at least it shouldn’t) that Kanye West is the top celebrity sore loser and is the epitome of this list. No shade towards the self-proclaimed Yeezus, but he could make up the next 15 slides (FYI, he doesn’t though). But the very creative and talented rapper would not accept his success as enough. He had to be awarded for it or else he would snap on those responsible: voters, awards ceremonies, the winners and hell, the world! It happened in 2004 — complaining backstage after not winning at the American Music Awards, in 2006 it got a little worse at the MTV Europe Music Awards, but he topped himself at the 2009 Video Music Awards. When Taylor Swift won Best Female Video over Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” — he stormed up on stage and OK, well, the world knows the rest. Sigh, Kanye, sigh.
