Stars who never won an OscarPictolic
We all know what a great honor it is to be nominated for an Oscar. Celebrities want to get away with this tiny, shiny statue. The Oscar is the highest status symbol among the Hollywood elite. But does the Oscar give true recognition for merit? Here is a list of the stars who have yet to win the much-coveted yet highly elusive award.
1. Johnny Depp.
Johnny Depp, one of the most popular actors in Hollywood. He was nominated for an Oscar for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, FairyLand, and Sweeney Todd. One can only assume that he will soon win this award.
2. Robert Downey Jr.
Equally convincing in Iron Man and Chaplin, Robert Downey Jr. is not afraid to experiment as an actor. He eluded Oscar twice, but with his talent, we think it's just a matter of time.
3. Tom Cruise.
Tom Cruise is one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, but he doesn't have an Oscar. For "Accomplice", "Soldiers of Failure" he Oscar-nominated.
4. Harrison Ford.
Harrison Ford is one of the biggest stars on the planet, but his movie star career hasn't been translated into an award. He was nominated once in 1987 for his role in The Witness.
5. Joaquin Phoenix.
Joaquin Phoenix has been an actor for a long time, he started playing as a child. But even after three decades in business and three Oscar nominations, this little golden statue continues to elude this talented actor. His last nomination was in 2013 for his role in The Master.
6. Sigourney Weaver.
Sigourney Weaver is one of Hollywood's earliest female stars, and while she successfully laid the foundations for other actresses, she never held an Oscar in her hands. She has been nominated three times.
7. Will Smith.
Will Smith is a box office champion whose rise from comedy rapper to movie star is a story worthy of his own Hollywood script. But so far his ability to hit the biggest box office has not earned him an Oscar. However, his role in Ali at least made him a nominee.
8. Edward Norton.
Edward Norton is best remembered for his role in the 1996 film Primal Fear. He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor. Over the next two decades, Norton amassed two more nominations for his roles in American History X and Birdman, but he has yet to leave with an Oscar.
9. Ralph Fiennes.
Yes, Lord Voldemort himself has one of the most underrated and dynamic careers in film. From Schindler's List to the Harry Potter films.
10. Ed Harris.
Ed Harris has been able to lift nearly every film he has played in (often in supporting roles). The actor has been nominated for an Academy Award a total of four times.
