It's a timeless Hollywood tradition that actors and actresses vie for Oscars by losing or gaining a ton of weight. In 1980, Robert De Niro packed on the pounds for Raging Bull and won. In 2011, Christian Bale claimed his prize for doing the opposite in The Fighter, then got another nomination last year for getting all doughy for American Hustle. This year, everybody stayed their normal size, and we call shenanigans. Take heed, soon-to-be-loser Benedict Cumberbatch: if you really want that statue, you might want to take on a role that allows you to live on a diet of donut burgers and five-cheese bacon & crab mac. Getting fat scored Renee Zellweger a nomination for Bridget Jones -- and she wasn't even British. With that accent and a paunch, you'll be unstoppable!
