Egregious Weinstein Oscar Bids?

"For me it is Kate Winlset’s BA won for The Reader" - Jamie

"The Cider House Rules was terrible and took up space in 1999, one of the best movie years. And Cruise should have certainly beaten Caine." - Suzanne

"His most egregious Oscar heritage IS Roberto Benigni. And I would add Michael Caine winning over a way much deserving TOM CRUISE in his career best performance in Magnolia, that one still hurts." -Eder

Was Ansel Elgort too far removed? I know he's Norwegian on his mother's side

KEN -- oh, i just forgot him. Meant to include!

I’d add a young Roald Dahl to the list. Also, although she’s a fictional character, Rose Nylund nevertheless is perhaps the most quintessentially Norwegian to many and quite foxy when she acrobatically won that dance contest.
