1. Brad Pitt
2. "Fight Club" and "Troy".
The most charming vampire of all time, Brad Pitt, has hundreds of films in his luggage and not a single Oscar statuette. The actor was nominated three times, and for the first time it happened in 1996 for his supporting role in the film "12 Monkeys". But then the statuette went to Kevin Spacey for the film "The Usual Suspects".
3. Johnny Depp
4. Pirates of the Caribbean.
By the age of 50, this magnificent actor has managed to star in many popular films that receive huge box office receipts and get the unconditional love of the audience. Depp was nominated for an Oscar three times, but never received a statuette. His first nomination was in 2004 for the film "Pirates of the Caribbean", but then the award went to Sean Penn for "Mystic River".
5. "Sleepy Hollow" and "Secret Window".
6. Ralph Fiennes
The most romantic villain on the screen, Ralph Fiennes, is very cool, but also has not yet waited for an honorary award from the film academy. Although the films in which he starred, one is better than the other and collects a lot of awards. For example, Schindler's List has seven Oscars, The English Patient has nine, and Fiennes has none.
8. "Schindler's List" and "Harry Potter".
9. Jim Carrey
10. "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"
Jim Carrey is without exaggeration the most famous comedian in the world, a talented actor and a master of disguise. And he doesn’t have Oscars, but he doesn’t even have Oscar nominations. And after all, in his arsenal is not only silly comedies like "Dumb and Dumber" (however, quite funny), but also simply brilliant "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "The Truman Show", "Always Say Yes" ". And the "Mask" - how can you forget about it!
11. Keanu Reeves
12. "47 Ronin".
The main film event of the late 90s - early 2000s - "The Matrix" collected a cart and a small cart of prizes. Without Keanu Reeves, it's hard to imagine her, but he still didn't earn an Oscar. It's funny, but for this role he was given awards for the best fight and the best kiss from MTV.
13. Tom Cruise
14. "Born on the 4th of July."
Cruz was nominated for an Oscar three times: for his roles in the films Born on July 4th, Jerry Maguire and Magnolia, but did not receive the coveted statuette. He has five blockbusters Mission Impossible, Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, Interview with the Vampire and other great films. Academics, mess!
15. Gary Oldman
16. "The Fifth Element."
A real shame - Gary Oldman, whom critics call the best British actor of our time, was awarded an Oscar nomination only once - for his role in the thriller Get Out Spy! But this is a real master of reincarnation, which he demonstrated in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Dracula, Leon, The Fifth Element and other films that have forever entered the history of cinema.
17. Bill Murray
18. In Lost in Translation with Scarlett Johansson.
Sad comedian Bill Murray ascended to the very top of the Hollywood Olympus thanks to the comedy "Ghostbusters". And "Groundhog Day" has become a cult. But Murray was awarded the first and only Oscar nomination much later - in 2003 for the film Lost in Translation. "Oscar" was not given, but, however, he still grabbed the Golden Globe Award for them.
19. Edward Norton
20. American History X and The Incredible Hulk.
The wonderful Edward Norton, who will forever remain in our hearts as the nameless narrator from Fight Club, was nominated for an Oscar a couple of times - for Primal Fear and a brilliant performance in American History X. Among the works of Norton - "The Illusionist", "Birdman" and other cool films.
21. Leonardo DiCaprio
22. The Great Gatsby.
The talented and versatile Leonardo DiCaprio was also nominated, nominated, but not nominated. He has played enough for more than one Oscar, but in vain. Last year, when poor Leo was bypassed once again, everyone and sundry made fun of him.
