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…

Gal Gadot to Play the Role of Cleopatra and Egyptians Are Outraged

Published

By

Israel-born actress Gal Gadot said on Sunday that she will be teaming up again with “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins in a new film, where she will play the role of the legendary Egyptian Queen Cleopatra.

“I love embarking on new journeys, I love the excitement of new projects, the thrill of bringing new stories to life,” Gadot wrote.

“Cleopatra is a story I wanted to tell for a very long time. Can’t be more grateful about this A team,” Gadot wrote.

Gadot said that she can’t wait to tell Cleopatra’s story “through women’s eyes” for the very first time. But not everyone was as excited as she is about the announcement and people are questioning the choice of an Israeli in playing the ruler of a North African country.

People took it to social media to express their outrage at choosing Gadot to play the Egyptian ruler, and believe that it should have been an Egyptian-born to play the role or at least a black actor.

This clearly isn’t the only reason why Egyptians in specific are outraged, but they’re also upset a choosing an Israeli Actress to portray the Egyptian historical figure.

On the other hand, others are pointing out that the Egyptian ruler was actually ethnically Greek or Persian. Which side are you on?

Omar El Saeed, a star who was able in no time to steal the attention and turn heads. His talent showed in a number of shows and movies and in each one, he never failed to impress us with his uncanny performance.

We sat down with the talented star and had a quick chat on his latest work in ‘Aswad Fateh’ and he revealed to us some behind the scenes, the action that none of us got to see!

When we asked Omar how they shot the series during quarantine time and how challenging that must have been, he surprised that quarantine and the virus were actually the least of their concerns. To our surprise, the show was shot in Lebanon during the explosion! Talk about challenges.

Saeed told us that the entire cast was actually near the explosion when it occurred, he even told us that Haifa Wehbe was forced to leave her home and she stayed with the rest of the cast in an hotel.

When asked how they managed to overcome such a scare and continue shooting, he told us that they had each other’s back and that they were all on a friendly basis, which made the situation bearable. As they say, the show must go on and so they continued shooting despite such a disaster as they were committed to a deadline.

Talk about commitment and bravery!

We asked him where he would go once this coronavirus scare is gone, and he told us France or London. Of all his shows, Omar’s favorite one is ‘Al Beyoot Asrar.’

His favorite meal is Molokheya and we just couldn’t agree more. We love a star with an oriental good taste of food!

We asked him about the weirdest comment he has ever gotten on Instagram, he said a woman actually cussed at him but as a compliment! A bit aggressive, don’t you think?

He also told us that the most annoying thing he receives is requests from fans asking him to record a video wishing someone a happy birthday!

Omar certainly worked with a lot of charming actresses from Egypt, but when we asked him which actress he would love to work with from Hollywood, he said Cameron Diaz. 

We ended the interview with a bunch of this or that questions! So let’s get to know him better together, shall we?

Texting or calls? Texting!

Movies or series or theater? Theater!

Beach life or desert life? Beach life.

Morning or night date? Morning date.

Party life or chill life? Both.

Favorite destination? South of France.

We definitely enjoyed getting to know Omar more and meeting all sides of him, the brave, the fun and even the annoyed one at times! Catch his latest show ‘Aswad Fateh‘ on Shahid.com and share with us what you think of it so far!
