    Denzel Washington has famously never appeared in a Best Picture nominee, let alone a winner.

    Equally interesting, though she was strong in the early years of her career, Meryl Streep has only been in 1 in the last 27 years (The Hours)

    John Wayne’s name probably surprises me the most. The Quiet Man won for directing but not picture.

    Wayne actually for me is the least surprising (other than Monroe). His best films were mostly westerns, when few have won BP and only one (Unforgiven) was any good.

    The Quiet Man was never going to win, despite Ford’s BD victory. It was from Republic Pictures, and no way in the Hollywood of the 1950s was a film not from one of the prestige studios going to win BP.

    Just remembered that Monroe is in All About Eve.

    That’s why I asked for assistance – thanks for catching that.

    The most surprising is Katherine Hepburn, with Henry Fonda close behind. They both appeared in numerous Oscar contending films and/or actually great ones. Jane Fonda also is curious.

    Oscar trivia
    Elizabeth Taylor and spencer Tracy appear in the most best picture nominees without ever being in a winner. The total is 9 including the film that links them together, father of the bride!!

    Daniel Day-Lewis isn’t that surprising, considering how selective he is with roles, though interestingly all his nominations were for BP nominated films. He came closest with Lincoln, but we all know how soft the support was by the end of the season. A film as eccentric as There Will Be Blood (my favourite of the 21st century) was never going to win BP, even without NCFOM.

    Barbara Stanwyck was underrated by the Academy herself, so no surprise there. Katharine Hepburn though is a shocker.
