These 10 Actors Have Multiple Oscar Nominations Without A Win
Some legendary names are on this list!
As Oscar season begins, there has been a lot of conversation about actors who have been snubbed and actors who have received multiple nominations yet never won an award. We take a look at actors who are regarded as the finest in Hollywood but haven’t nabbed an Oscar yet.
1. Amy Adams
Adams has just got her sixth Oscar nomination for Vice, which also stars Christian Bale, but has never won an Oscar. Her fans have been rallying for it and hopefully she’ll get her due this year.
2. Deborah Kerr
Despite having starred in some of Hollywood’s most iconic films like An Affair to Remember and From Here to Eternity, Deborah Kerr has never won a single Oscar. She’s been nominated six times for the coveted prize.
3. Glenn Close
Regarded as one of the finest actors in Hollywood, Glenn Close has been nominated for an Oscar six times for films such as Dangerous Liaisons and Fatal Attraction. This year she’s been nominated for her work in The Wife, for which she has picked up the Golden Globe.
4. Annette Bening
Annette Bening is a four-time Academy Award nominee for films like The Grifters (1990), American Beauty (1999) and Being Julia (2004). She came close to winning the Oscar in 2010 for The Kids Are All Right but lost to Natalie Portman.
5. Richard Burton
The legendary actor has been nominated seven times for the Oscars but has never won. In fact, while he and his former wife Elizabeth Taylor were both nominated for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? in 1967, it was Taylor who took home the Oscar.
6. Michelle Williams
Williams has been nominated four times in the last eight years: Twice in the Best Supporting Actress category for Brokeback Mountain and Manchester By The Sea and twice in the Best Actress category for Blue Valentine and My Week with Marilyn.
7. Ed Harris
It’s surprising that despite having given superlative performances in Apollo 13 and The Truman Show, Ed Harris has never won an Oscar.
8. Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise has been nominated for his work in Jerry Maguire, Born on the 4th of July and Magnolia. He is yet to receive an Oscar.
9. Laura Linney
Linney has won quite a few Emmys and Golden Globes but hasn’t had any luck at the Oscars. Her notable performances include Kinsey and The Savages.
10. Johnny Depp
The Academy has clearly not shown any love for Depp’s eccentric characters like Sweeney Todd and Jack Sparrow. They have resulted in a few nominations but no wins yet.
