Actors And Actresses Who Still Don’t Have An Oscar, For Some Unknown Reason…

15 Jul 2020


1

Jake Gyllenhaal


“His performances in Nightcrawler, Prisoners, and Nocturnal Animals were absolutely incredible. He puts so much detail into his characters and gives his all with every performance. He’s been around FOREVER and has only been nominated once 15 years ago.”

Will Smith


“How has Will Smith not gotten an Oscar already??? He’s played such huge roles so well.”

Glenn Close


“Glenn Close not winning an Oscar should be considered a crime. Seven nominations and ZERO WINS?? WTF?”

4

Edward Norton


“Three times nominated (Birdman, American History X, and Primal Fear) but no wins. Not to mention his great work in The Illusionist, Fight Club, The Score, and 25th Hour.”

Saoirse Ronan


“She has been nominated for four Oscars, and she was only 13 years old when she was nominated for her first! She is an absolutely phenomenal actress, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for the future (hopefully an Oscar win!)”

Samuel L. Jackson


“Maybe he kinda had similar roles, but he does every one of them so well. He’s also been in nearly every iconic movie or saga of the last few decades, and he’s always the best part of a Tarantino movie. I mean, c’mon! Considerably worse actors have received the award.”

James McAvoy


“He is the most underrated actor out there right now.”

Taron Egerton


“Taron Egerton should have won an Oscar for Rocketman. He was phenomenal as Elton John.”

Amy Adams


“Amy [email protected]#KING Adams. She gives a stellar performance every time and is ignored. Even my mother who never cares about awards season was mad about that because Amy Adams is a gift, and we don’t deserve her.”

Stanley Tucci


“The man’s one of the best supporting actors out there, and one of the rare ones who manages to elevate everyone else’s performances. You’d think that he would have won at least one supporting actor Oscar, but he’s only ever been nominated once, and he’s never won. It’s completely barmy.”

Naomi Watts


“She’s always been super underrated.”

12

Angela Bassett


“Angela Bassett! She plays roles no one else could and gets no recognition.”

 

-dydijah

Woody Harrelson


“Absolutely phenomenal actor from Natural Born Killers, Larry Flynt, to Three Billboards. The list goes on. He has such an impressive range that it’s baffling why he hasn’t won an Oscar.”

14

Toni Collette


“Toni Collette deserves all the awards”

David Oyelowo


“Oyelowo gave us one of the most unbiased, beautifully artistic portrayals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ever. Oyelowo worked behind the scenes for years, studying King through interviews, letters, documentaries, museums, and King’s family and friends. Anyone who puts that much effort and intensity into a role deserves to be freaking nominated at least! Oyelowo brings the role to life so you see King’s struggle between protecting his family versus protecting the people he’s fighting for. There are moments in the film where Oyelowo says no words, but you know what’s going on inside his heart, making you feel what King was feeling. No one will be able to re-create how Oyelowo played King.”

Michelle Williams


“Her being nominated four times and not winning kills me, especially for the movies she was nominated for (Blue Valentine, Brokeback Mountain, My Week with Marilyn, Manchester by the Sea). Those performances blew everyone else out of the water those years.”

 

—faceghostta

 

17

Mark Ruffalo


“Underrated king, Mark Ruffalo. His nominations were always up against some strong performances, but I’m still shook he didn’t win for Spotlight.”

18

Salma Hayek


“She is a truly phenomenal actress. Her performance in Frida was so riveting and memorable. She absolutely deserved an Oscar for it.”

 

–grundlefresch

 

19

Bradley Cooper


“He should’ve gotten it for Silver Linings Playbook, and if not that, then DEFINITELY for A Star Is Born.”

 

—tvelazquez10

Sir Ian McKellen


“He should win one for every movie he’s in.”
