So many celebrity scandals are real, but there are a few out there that we all came to believe were true, but which were actually fake.

5. Marisa Tomei Didn’t Really Win the Oscar
Ever since Marisa Tomei won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1993 for her performance in My Cousin Vinny, there has been a rumor floating around that she wasn’t supposed to win and that the presenter called her name out by mistake. One of the reasons that this rumor ever gained steam was because Tomei was up against four more established actresses and critics weren’t taking her nomination seriously. As we all know now from the 2017 Academy Award debacle where the wrong Best Picture winner was announced, if Tomei hadn’t won, two members of Price-Waterhouse would have been waiting in the wings to correct the mistake.
