If her name alone doesn't ring a bell, chances are it's because you know her better as Dorothy, the young heroine in the beloved classic The Wizard of Oz.

She was more than Dorothy, though. Garland had 27 films under her belt by the time she passed away at the young age of 47. One of those films was A Star is Born, which housed Garland's greatest performance. In it she played an artist on the rise who meets the love of her life, an alcoholic movie star, when he crashes her performance one night. Sadly, the two don't go on to enjoy marital bliss.

And, shocker, the Academy robbed Garland of the Best Actress Oscar in 1954. What's even more bittersweet is that Garland's character in the film does win an Oscar. Reality doesn't always mirror fiction.
