Always Nominees, Never Winners: 10 Great Hollywood Actors With Zero Academy Awards

Published

on

‘Tis indeed the season of grand film awards! The Oscars are approaching and soon, we’re going to have people start calling out the Academy for all the snubs we’re going to witness, same as every year. And just in case you’ve been living under a rock, the Oscars will take place on the 4th of March this year. Although it is a highly flawed system of evaluation, some people actually measure an actor’s success by the amount of naked golden statues they have won. So, here’s a list of some truly great thespians who have not won an Oscar award yet:

1. Michelle Williams


Nominated four times, twice for Best Actress in Blue Valentine (2010) and My Week With Marilyn (2011) and twice for Best Supporting Actress in Brokeback Mountain (2005) and Manchester By The Sea (2016). Michelle still hasn’t been called upon for an acceptance speech, in spite of her spectacular talent and her incredibly diverse roles.

2. Harrison Ford


Now, who could believe that the man who played Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard has ZERO Academy awards in his account? Hard to grasp. Ford’s been nominated for an Oscar once in 1986 for his role in the film Witness (1985). Once as in one time…una. What the hell?

3. Amy Adams


The 43 year old actress has been nominated FIVE times for an Academy award, so far. Four of them as Best Supporting Actress, and once for Best Actress in 2014’s American Hustle. She nabbed her first nomination back in 2006 for her role in the film Junebug (2005).

4. Gary Oldman

The 59 year old actor has only been nominated twice for an Academy award. Once, in 2012 for his role in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011), and now again this year for his role as Winston Churchill in 2017’s Darkest Hour. A lot of people are rooting for Oldman this year!

5. Glenn Close

Just in case you didn’t know, Glenn Close has been nominated for six Academy awards. Three times as Best Actress and another three as Best Supporting actress. But unfortunately, still no wins.

6. Joaquin Phoenix

Phoenix has never really been a fan of award shows or of big events in general. Everybody in Hollywood knows that. But his talent and skill surely do compensate for his lack of interest in social interactions. The man has been nominated three times for an Academy award. His last nomination was back in 2013 when he was nominated for his role in 2012’s The Master.

7. Edward Norton

Where is Edward Norton? Norton’s fans have been asking themselves this question ever since rumors arose in 2015 that the actor is giving up on his life as a star. Other rumors stated that Hollywood directors aren’t fond of working with the guy because he’s hard to deal with. Nonetheless, no one can deny that Norton is one hell of an actor. Norton’s been nominated three times for an Academy award, the latest nomination dates back to 2015 for his role in Inarritu’s Birdman (2014).

8. Liam Neeson


Mr. Neeson has been blessing us with exquisite performances for the last 30 years and still, this acting gem has only been nominated for an Oscar ONCE. The date is 1994, and of course, it was for his role in Spielberg’s Schindler’s List (1993).

9. Helena Bonham Carter


Look me in the eye and tell me you don’t think that Helena Bonham Carter is the QUEEN of unorthodox roles! Carter never seizes to surprise us with her bold performances and her striking characters. This BAWS has only been nominated twice for an academy award. Once, back in 1998 and another, in 2011 for her role in Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech (2010).

10. Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer’s been in the business since 1979! She has proved herself to be a powerful actress and a force to be reckoned with. And yet, she’s never won an Oscar. The powerhouse’s only been nominated three times for an Academy award; her last nomination was in 1993…

Mo Salah to Become the First Ambassador for UN Instant Network Schools

Our iconic role model Mohamed Salah has been selected by the United Nations as the first Ambassador for Instant Network Schools, the program that grants refugee and host country students the chance to obtain high-quality online education. 

The organization made the announcement on their official website and said that Salah will participate in the UNHCR program by taking part in school visits supported by the program. He will also help in raising awareness regarding the importance of quality education for refugee students. 

The program invests in technology that brings the kids closer to the outside world and help them envision their future and plan it out.

There are currently 36 instant school communication networks in eight refugee camps in Kenya, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan, according to the statement.

“I’m partnering with Vodafone Foundation and UNHCR to close the gap between the education available to refugees and their peers living in settled communities,” Salah said in a statement.

“Instant Network Schools is an important initiative that I am proud to represent, which is transforming learning for a generation of young people across sub-Saharan Africa and soon also in my home country, Egypt,” he added.

Quintin Tarantino

All time favorite filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino finally welcomes being a father! Hurray! Daniella Pick, Quentin’s wife, went into labor on Saturday, February 22nd!

The happy couple are excited to announce the birth of their baby boy whose star sign is officially Pisces. Daniella broke the news to her husband in late August, and ever since, lovers have been preparing and getting ready for the day he’ll be born!

Model Daniella and Quentin met back in 2009. Yes, a long long time ago! They got officially engaged and tied the knot in 2018. We have no idea how Quintin was capable of directing his last ever movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood while having a lot on his plate!

Regardless of that, Quintin has been treating his hubby very well and was taking care of her health so that the baby could be as healthy as possible! Their wedding was a small private ceremony where close friends and family had gathered to celebrate such a monumental moment!

The age gap between both lovers might be a bit big, but 21 years of difference between them hasn’t been an issue in their relationship! All that matters to them is that they’re in love and just had their first baby, you could imagine how stoked they are right now?

The director though opened up about how much he concentrates on his work. “When I’m doing a movie, I’m not doing anything else. It’s all about the movie. I don’t have a wife. I don’t have a kid. Nothing can get in my way. The whole world can go to hell and burst into flames. I don’t care. This is my life.”

Can you believe that the Golden Globe Winner believed that he would never get married or have a kid before he’s 60? Look at where he is today! Happily married and just had his first baby! People were hoping they’d name the child Quentin Junior.

Maybe the Kill Bill director had this all planned out. He’d mentioned previously that he only wanted to make 10 movies in his entire career, but when asked about why is he ending his career, he said that he’d rather make 10 movies that would leave a mark on people and stand out rather than simply do dozens! Which is why Tarantino fans are bummed out after releasing his last movie!

Congrats to the happy couple, we all truly hope that putting your family first after being a huge success in cinema is your happiest decision. I mean who knows, maybe Quintin’s son will turn out to have his father’s talent!
