    Dame Maggie Smith a theatre royalty, who has won
    every award imaginable under the sun. Except for one… the Olivier Awards,
    despite 6 nominations. One would think it would be the easiest to get
    considering her long stage career.


    Vanessa Redgrave has never won a BAFTA and was
    only nominated for it on 3 occasions.


    Liza Minnelli has never won a competitive Grammy.
    Yes, she has Grammy Legend Award, but that’s more of an honorary award.


    Dame Julie Andrews has never won a Tony Award.


    Dame Angela Lansbury is the biggest winner of one
    industry award – the Tony Awards with 5 wins and the biggest loser of another –
    the Emmy Awards with 18 losses.


    Glenn Close has won every major award and numerous
    times, except for the Oscar of course. She’s currently the biggest living loser
    among performers with 6 unsuccessful nominations.


    Bill Maher, of course was nominated for a whooping
    32 Emmy Awards without ever winning.

    Despite having two Oscars, Kevin Spacey has never won a Golden Globe. He will contend for his eighth nomination next year with his TV work on House of Cards, but Matthew McConaughey is a frontrunner to win for True Detective.

    Jane Krakowski always pulled off great work on 30 Rock, was nominated all throughout the show’s run, but never won. 

    Also Hugh Laurie for House

    Barbra Streisand has never won a Tony Award.  She was beaten by none other than ME.

    I’m amazed Elton John has never completed his EGOT with like a concert special or something, but I guess he still has time to pick up those late in his career a la Tony Bennett.

    I guess thant Hepburn never won a Golden Globe becouse the knew that she’ll never show up anyway, so they didn’t want to waste it on her. The great Rosalind Russell has never won an Oscar, but won 5 Golden Globes without ever losing. 

    I was surprised to find out that Diahanna Carroll has never won an Emmy. For some reason I thought she had tons of them. Same goes about Dame Judi Dench.

    Maggie Smith has never won a major film critics award (i.e. New York, LA or National Society of Film Critics).

    Martin Sheen never won an Emmy, even for his superb performance from The West Wing

    and Meryl Streep, the greatest of them all, never win a tony, despite nominated once a long time ago

    Not sure what so surpising about Streep’s lack of Tony Award. In order to win one you need at least to appear in a Broadway production and Streep hasn’t done it since 1977.

    For me the most shocking was Diana Ross never getting any Grammys sans her Lifetime Achievement Award.
