Last night the Oscar Awards celebrated some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Per the usual, despite their highly dramatic performances, reality TV was not honored. Alas some of our favorite reality stars also happen to be actors and actresses. Actors and actresses whose contributions to the academy has NOT been recognized with a golden statue. UGH.
Below is our list of Reality TV star/actors and actresses who haven’t been nominated by the Academy… YET! Just a note: Eileen Davidson of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills has actually won an Emmy Award, she’s being included in this list even though she’s already thanked the audience for really, really liking her.

Lisa Rinna has been in everything for-ev-er, from Depends commercials to movies, but she's most memorable for her role on Melrose Place and for playing Lynn Echols on Veronica Mars. #LoVe #Marshmallows
Kim Kardashian - Drop Dead Diva
Kim had a wooden and unconvincing guest role on the former Lifetime show Drop Dead Diva. She was supposed to have sizable role in the Tyler Perry movie The Marriage Counselor, but her role was cut during her divorce drama! #IRONY
She'll also be appearing in the upcoming AbFab movie (NOOOOOOO!)
Eileen won an Emmy for her role on Days of Our Lives. Sadly no Oscar yet... #StrangerAtThePentagon
Heather Dubrow - Guest Role Superstar
Heather Dubrow was once Heather Paige Kent, actress extraordinaire. She tried to resurrect her fabulous acting career by parlaying her RHOC role into guest appearances on several now-canceled shows like Malibu Country and Hot In Cleveland, plus the internet show Sequestered.
Nowadays she's more focused on building enormous houses than building her acting career. #ThankYouJesus
Jill Zarin - Night Of The Wild
Jill Zarin has had many a wild and horrifying nights on Real Housewives Of New York, but after that was over she acted in Night of the Wild with Kelly Rutherford. The 2015 made for TV movie didn't get much traction, but it did get us this fabulous screenshot of Jill channeling the frustration we all feel for her!
Maddie Ziegler - Pretty Little Liars
Dance Moms star Maddie is ditching toe shoes for acting, but she can still re-use her patented 'Maddie Face'.
NeNe definitely wants to leave Real Housewives Of Atlanta to be an acktrusssss and she's been working hard to achieve her goal. She's starred as Coach Roz on Glee, in the short-lived Ryan Murphy sitcom The New Normal, acted in two Broadway performances, and I've heard a rumor she'll be appearing on the next season of American Horror Story...
She's gotta win some kinda of award, sometime, right? (But seriously - congrats, NeNe!)
JWoww - One Life To Live
Yes, Jenni Farley starred in several episodes of One Life To Live. Also known as Last Acting Job Of Her Life.
