A man with Austrian accent won several body building prizes and entered in Hollywood where he also proved himself as one of the leading star of Hollywood Industry. Due to his muscular body, he was given roles according to history. Hercules in New York was the first movie that he did in 1970, after that he continuously acted in many high rated movies, In 1991 Terminator 2: Judgment Day was considered one the best action movie directed by famous director James Cameron, though movie won several Oscars but there was no Oscar for Arnold Schwarzenegger. The last action Hero, True Lies, End of Days, The 6th Day, Collateral Damage, The Expendables, The Expendables-2, The Expendables -3, Terminator-3, Terminator Genisys etc. All of these movie did fantastic job on Box office by capturing 100% attendance but Arnold has to wait to earn Oscar, how much time? well, God knows better.

These are few movies and i am sure many of these movies deserve Oscars for leading role.

That is the myth which i really don’t understand and what’s going on behind the Oscar is totally a type of favoritism.
