We Bet You Thought These Stars Already Won An Oscar

20 Jun

After 85 years of dispensing awards, the Oscars have become something of a measuring stick for judging, and then recognizing, the best and brightest talents in Hollywood. But with so many great movies, performances and behind-the-scenes efforts, and so few slots for nominations, it comes as little surprise that more than a handful of great accomplishments go unrecognized each year.

But after two years? Five? Ten? It seems impossible to think that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences would fail to find some reason why certain industry icons deserve to take home one of those little gold statuettes.

And yet, Celebuzz has found not two, or five, or ten, but 25 performers and filmmakers who have never won an Oscar – and in a few cases, have never received nominations.

While the most egregious oversight in Oscar history might be never awarding a Best Director statuette to Stanley Kubrick, the filmmaker did in fact receive recognition in 1968 for Visual Effects for his work on 2001: A Space Odyssey. And Alfred Hitchcock, another industry luminary, received an honorary Oscar, but was never recognized for an individual film, despite receiving nominations for Psycho and other classic suspense thrillers.

But more recently, actors like Leonardo DiCaprio, Liam Neeson and Johnny Depp have failed to win awards against their colleagues and contemporaries, regardless of the fact that they’ve given some of the most unique, interesting, and perhaps most importantly, memorable performances in cinema history.

Talk a look at Celebuzz’s list of 25 stars who never took home Oscars, and then let us know: who do you think deserves an award the most? Leave your comments below for further discussion!
