Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar
After years and years of agonizing (and might we add Hilarious) memes of our favourite Leonardo DiCaprio not being able to bag an Academy Award, when the fabulous actor finally won his Oscar for his brilliant performance in The Revenant, the whole world cheered. It also gave hope to so many other splendid actors who are yet to receive an Award themselves. Guys, hold on, you might just win your long-deserving Academy Award six nominations later. With great fondness and quite a lot of complaints, we present to you the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar.
Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar
10. Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt is an actor who needs no introduction, being just the hottie and the brilliant actor that he is. Pitt has worked in numerous films which have been globally acclaimed, the most famous ones being Ocean’s Eleven and its two sequels, World War Z and Mr. And Mrs. Smith. He even guest starred in the iconic F.R.I.E.N.D.S and gave inspiration to the quote “Don’t be mean to people in high school, they might come back in your life looking like Brad Pitt”. Sadly, he makes it into the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar. We’re hoping his name will be omitted from here soon!
9. Glenn Close
Close is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Disney’s Cruella de Vil in the movie 101 Dalmatians. She has had an extremely versatile acting career and has received many awards as achievements, including three Emmy Awards and three Tony Awards. Her position as number nine on the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar is definitely undeserving!
8. Harrison Ford
Next in line of the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar is the American actor and producer, Harrison Ford. Ford has gained worldwide acclaim as the sassy captain of the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo in the original Star Wars series and the role of the endearing Indiana Jones. His movies Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and a few others have been inducted into the National Film Registry. He received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor for the 1985 movie Witness. Yes, this amazing man has been entertaining us for a long time, but as our Indy has said, “It’s not the years, honey. It’s the mileage.” We hope he reaches his Oscar milestone soon.
7. Bruce Willis
The American actor, producer and singer, Walter Bruce Willis is seventh in our list of the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar. The tough, ruggedly handsome actor plays the sardonic John McClane in the legendary Die Hard movie series. This and his role of Frank Moses in the movie Red and its sequel is enough for thousands to root for an Oscar for him. Willis has appeared in over 50 movies including the world-famous Pulp Fiction (1994), Armageddon (1998), Unbreakable (2000) and The Expendables 2 (2012). He has also guest starred in the sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S, and it does not get better than that. We hope this celebrity bags an Academy Award soon!
6. Tom Cruise
“Mission Impossible: The Oscar Win” should perhaps be Tom Cruise’s next movie title, maybe then he’ll get the award! Tom Cruise is one of the biggest icons of Hollywood and ironically enough, he doesn’t yet have an Oscar to his name. Cruise has made it into so many blockbuster films that mentioning a few really does him no justice. We aren’t really sure why he made it into the list of the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar. All we can say is- “Give the man an Oscar already!”
5. Gary Oldman
He did his waiting, 12 years of it, in Azkaban! How long does he need to wait for his Academy Award as well? The next in line in our list of the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar is this British actor who has appeared in countless amazing movies as both protagonists and antagonists. He has voiced in animated films as well as in video game series and appeared in music videos for David Bowie, Guns N’ Roses and Annie Lennox. Oldman also made an Emmy Award-nominated appearance in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. If all this isn’t enough, the man has worked with Batman for goodness’ sake! Let him have his Oscar, please.
4. Liam Neeson
“…but if you don’t (give me an Oscar already), I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you.” We’re pretty sure Liam Neeson had this in mind when he uttered these legendary lines for the movie Taken. Neeson is fourth in our list of the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar and we’re very sorry for the same. Neeson has done it all, he was Zeus, (the voice of) Aslan, Hannibal Smith, Ra’s al Ghul, and so much more; it’s redundant to say that the man should definitely have an Oscar in his display of prizes!
3. Helena Bonham Carter
Clenching the third spot in the list of Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar is Bellatrix Lestrange. A British actress of great versatility, Helena Bonham Carter made her mark in the film industry. She became one of the most successful actresses. She was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. It was for her role of Kate Croy in the 1997 movie The Wings of the Dove and for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for playing Queen Elizabeth in the 2010 movie The King’s Speech. This eccentric woman has, quite ironically, won millions of hearts with her portrayal of the Dark Lord’s most faithful servant. Her big-headed role of the Red Queen in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland has also made her one of our favourites. We are rooting for you, Helena!
2. Robert Downey Jr.
Yes, we are as surprised as you are that Tony Stark is yet to receive an Oscar. Robert Downey Jr. captured our hearts ever since his role in the 1992 film Chaplin, for which he received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor. He received another nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in the 2008 action comedy Tropic Thunder. Downey owns the screen as Sherlock Holmes. He is believed by most to be the “Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist” that is the Marvel superhero, Ironman. Guys, Tony Stark; let’s not make him wait for his Oscar anymore please.
1. Johnny Depp
Captain Jack Sparrow is definitely number one on this list of the Top 10 Best Movie Stars Who Don’t Have an Oscar. With Leo finally bagging his Oscar, Depp should surely be the next actor who gets that long deserved Oscar! We love his iconic characters Captain Sparrow, Willie Wonka and the Mad Hatter. His flawless and versatile acting has already won him a Golden Globe and the Screen Actors Guild Award (among many others) and we’re sure that an Oscar is just around the corner! Hang in there, Johnny!
