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…

ABU ‘MALEK EL FABRAKA’

Published

on

ABU’s latest hit causes a tropical storm this summer!
The fresh wave of Summer brings pop prince ABU’s latest album ‘An El Awan’ onto
our shores. The latest track ‘Malek El Fabraka’ recently released, saturating us with
fresh and vibrant summer vibes to enjoy the sunny season! Setting the pace for the
rest of the seven track Album, with each subsequent track being released in three to
four weeks one after another. The next song to be released after ‘Malek El Fabraka’ is
set to be the bombshell ‘Maleket El Helween’.


Written by Mahmoud Salah, composed and distributed by Meno, ‘Malek El
Fabraka’ in Abu’s eyes has “a new lyrical style than what came before it. The thing I like
most about the song’s lyrics is the message, that we all live in the era of make believe,
everyone making everything up. Feeling realistic, it’s about someone who was in a bad
place in his life, as he discovers the person who hurt him and took the decision to cut
them out, and that ultimately he could overcome his pain. We somehow get stuck in
relationships and we feel that there is no way out or that we don’t have other
alternatives and I wanted to tap into that”.


This is the second lyric video Abu released after previous hit ‘Hateegy’. He has a
new concept when it comes to releasing clips as he stated “I plan to be adding some
variety to the album, in which not all tracks will be released with music videos, some will
be animated and some will be interesting lyric videos or visually exciting pieces of
content”. His developed style, desire to delve deeper into the soul and turmoils of love
show a unique progression in Abu’s style, with only more layers to be uncovered with
his new album

A ripple coursed through the hearts of Egyptians as we all watched Al Ekhteyar 2 while the emotionally moving ‘Dhalin’ by the King Mohamed Mounir played. A piece mourning the brave ‘Oasis martyrs’ who lost their lives in service to their homeland. Captivating the emotions of millions across the country, capturing their feelings of regret and sorrow and transforming it into a song manifesting the pride and resilience of a nation.

Mounir drew upon the talents of those he knew would be necessary to bring justice to the piece’s subject matter. The captivating song that brought the king to tears during the recording, is a product of favorite poet Nasr El Din Nagy, the artist behind the moving lyrics and was composed and arranged by the remarkable Ahmed Farhat.

Delivering a piece that the King intended to remind us of the strength and spirit Egyptians present in the face of adversity. Exemplified by the Egyptian army’s heroism in the fight against terrorism. Mounir’s words echo the chant within the hearts of all our countrymen, “Glory to the martyrs and long live Egypt.”.
