The actor took to Twitter to broadcast the face he intended pulling if he didn't win the Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Play award.
O'Dowd was nominated for his role in 'Of Mice and Men' and posted the tongue-in-cheek selfie just before the awards kicked off in New York.
He tweeted, "It's #Tonys day!!! I fear I'll be 'broken bad', but worry not, my 'good loser' face is coming along nicely" alongside a pic of him looking angry and shaking his fist.
The actor subsequently lost out to 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston who won for 'All the Way.'
When the camera panned to O'Dowd he drew laughs by raising a hip flask to his lips and fans tweeted the image during the ceremony.
Meanwhile, Irish playwright Martin McDonagh's 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' also lost out as 'A Raisin in the Sun' bagged the Best Revival of a Play award.
Irish actress Sarah Greene, who stars in McDonagh's play, lost out to Sophie Okonedo who won Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Play for 'A Raisin in the Sun'.
