5 Great Hollywood Actors Who Never Lifted An Oscar

The nominations are out, the stage is set and guess who isn’t invited?
They say, you can’t win ‘em all. Which is just as fine, because we weren’t looking for all anyway, we are willing to settle for some - Some recognition of the decades of hard work and commendable performances put in by some of cinema’s finest. In our hearts, they may be winners but for the mighty Academy Award jury, they are never quite deemed capable of making the cut. Here’s a list of the five most humiliating Oscar snubs of all time:

Leonardo DiCaprio
While it was obvious that he was destined for greatness right from his first roguish grin aboard the Titanic, several years and even more jaw dropping performances later, the Inception star has yet to lay claim to an Academy Award, instead making it regularly to the worst Oscar snubs of all time.

Robert Downey Jr.
Billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist... While the guy may be able to lay claim to a variety of adjectives, the term ‘Academy Award winner’ has sadly yet to join the list. 

Brad Pitt
He may have a perfect wife and a perfect life and perfect hair and perfect everything basically, but when it came to being awarded cinema’s highest honor, even lady luck drew the line - Five nominations later, the prestigious Academy Award has yet to grace his trophy shelf. 

Johnny Depp
Blondes, redheads, brunettes - Over the years, the Charlie & The Chocolate Factory actor has gone home with a wide variety of ladies, but our favorite pirate has somehow yet to drive home with a golden statuette.

Tom Cruise
The number of sexiest man alive titles the hunky star has been conferred with over the years probably run in triple digits now; but keeping track of the number of Academy Awards he has picked up sadly doesn’t require much math.
