Can't think of any specific names off hand but one of those old guard who'd been looked over for years then get an OSCAR for probably one of thier worst films just because they 'deserved it'.
Sean Connery's one of the most famous recipients on that basis. I don't necessarily think his performance in The Untouchables was any worse than his fellow nominees, but the general feeling is that he got it precisely because of the 'Old Guard' need to recognise him.
