Thora Birch in Election

Alexander Payne's Oscar-nominated dramedy Election (1999) was highly successful. But one actress who was left off the ballot and didn't get a taste of that success is Thora Birch. Evidently, Thora and Alexander had conflicting ideas about the film's screenplay and she was fired on the third day of filming. In the end, though, it wasn't so bad for her — the actress took a part in another 1999 film that went on to win Best Picture and a slew of other awards: American Beauty.
