The Academy Awards are set for Sunday and the top films and actors will come home with Oscars, but you shouldn’t expect to be able to build a collection of the winners’ certified autograph cards.
Because barely any of this year’s top nominees have ever signed on for a certified (non-cut) autograph. And, in most instances, it’s been years since those few who have signed have sat down to do the honors.
Quentin Tarantino‘s latest film, The Hateful Eight, may rank near the bottom of the legendary director’s box-office totals, but the cast of eight memorable characters in the violent and frigid Western film just might be heating things up soon.

A few famous faces from television and movies are getting the Funko Pop! treatment and are on their way to stores next month.
Characters from Friends, The Hateful Eight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and a new dose of Star Wars toys are all on their way from the Everett, Wash.-based company.
