Try using the arrow keys

When big name actors and actresses snub the Academy Award ceremonies, this likely means that they don’t think they’re going to win, or they’re pretty much the best, have attended several of “these things” in the past, and don’t feel the need to attend another. The latter is probably the case for actress Judi Dench, who, rather than making her red carpet appearance at tonight’s Oscars though she was nominated for Best Actress in Philomena, will be working in India on The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2. Although Dench had previously mentioned she wanted to attend the Oscars, her absence is only one of many celebrity absences from past ceremonies. In fact, many other celebrities have failed to attend this historical event.
