11 Actors We Believe Should Have Won An Oscar, But Haven’t – #8 is Our Favorite!

There are some actors who win countless awards for their acting ability, then there are some who don’t ever get recognised, no matter how hard they try. When it comes to the Oscars, the most renowned awards in the movie industry, some have been nominated and failed to win. Some have even been nominated several times and have failed to win each time. Not everyone can win one, of course, but there are some actors who we feel should have at least won one by now.

  1. Johnny Depp

While he’s regarded as one of the most versatile actors working today, Johnny has never won an Oscar. He’s been nominated for Best Actor three times, though his work in films Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Finding Neverland, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street hasn’t been rewarded with an Oscar.

  1. Glenn Close

She’s one of three actresses to have been nominated for Oscars six times without ever winning, a record she shares with Thelma Ritter and Deborah Kerr. Three of her nominations were for Best Actress, while the remaining three were for Best Supporting Actress.

  1. Leonardo DiCaprio

He’s been nominated for Best Actor three times and once for Best Supporting Actor, but has never won. He’s scored his fourth Best Actor nomination for The Revenant and will hopefully leave this year’s Oscars with a trophy in hand.

  1. Tom Cruise

Sigourney hasn’t yet managed to win an Oscar despite being nominated three times. She’s received two Best Actress nominations for Aliens and Gorillas in the Mist and a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Working Girl but has yet to win.

  1. Brad Pitt

Brad has actually won an Oscar for his role as co-producer for 12 Years a Slave, though he hasn’t yet been awarded for his acting, despite scoring three Best Actor nominations.

  1. Jessica Chastain

She’s received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress and one for Best Actress, though she’s still without an Oscar, despite critically acclaimed roles in films such as Zero Dark Thirty.

  1. Will Smith

He’s boycotting this year’s ceremony because of the lack of non-white nominees, though Will has earned himself two Best Actor nominations in the past for Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness, neither of which resulted in wins.

  1. Harrison Ford

He’s been in plenty of movies, but only one has ever earned him a nomination and that was Witness, which was released back in 1985. Alas, it didn’t earn him a trophy.

  1. Helena Bonham Carter

The actress has had a very colorful and varied acting career, with many top roles under her belt. She was nominated for Best Actress for her role in The Wings of the Dove, then earned a Best Supporting Actress for The King’s Speech, though neither earned her a trophy.

  1. Liam Neeson

Though he’s featured in lots of critically acclaimed films, Liam has only ever been nominated once and that was for Schindler’s List, which many think he deserved to be recognised for.
