Celebrities Who Refused Awards

Marlon Brando (1973)

Marlone Ernest Brando Jr. (April 3, 1924 – July 1, 2004) was an American actor who won two Academy Awards for Best Actor and three BAFTA Awards for Best Foreign Actor during the course of his 60-year career. He is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential actors of the twentieth century. 

Marlon Brando earned an Academy Award for his performance in "The Godfather" in 1973. Marlone, on the other hand, did not attend the awards event. Instead, a representative of the Red Indian tribe was present to accept the honor. He would not attend the awards ceremony, according to the Red Indian representative who stood on stage for him, because of the mistreatment and neglect of Red Indians in the cinema and film media. It was only the second time in Hollywood history that an Oscar nomination had been turned down, and it was a contentious occurrence that was widely publicized in the media.

Adele (2017)

Adele has won multiple Grammy Accolades, including one of the most prestigious awards for female singers. At the 2017 Grammy Awards, Adele, who has won numerous awards, was overcome with emotion. For a brief period, tears welled up in her eyes. She suggested at the end of a short speech that the honor should go to Beyoncé rather than herself. Beyoncé was given the honor by her. Beyoncé, as always, endured everything with a smile on his face.

Stephen Hawkins (1990)

Stephen Hawking was a famous British physicist who lived from 1942 to 2008. He was born on January 8, 1942, and died on March 14, 2008. In 1990, Hawking, an Englishman, declined the knighthood. Hawking had previously stated that he disliked this type of naming scheme since it made him feel uncomfortable.

Celine Dion – The award refused 1991

Celine Dion performs "My Heart Will Go Own," a song from the film Titanic. At the Felix Awards, she was named Best English Singer. Celine Dion was hesitant to accept the award as an English singer because she is from Quebec, a French-speaking province in Canada. She would rather be referred to as a Quebec vocalist than an English singer. Celine Dion, on the other hand, declined the prize and exited the stage in the middle of the applause, claiming that it would have been better if it had been awarded to the best singer or the best Quebec singer instead.
