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.June 8, 2014 at 9:25 am #154445
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 HouseJune 8, 2014 at 9:27 am #154446

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.June 8, 2014 at 10:40 am #154448
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.
Katharine Hepburn never won a Golden Globe.June 13, 2014 at 2:40 am #154449
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.June 13, 2014 at 3:51 am #154450

and Meryl Streep, the greatest of them all, never win a tony, despite nominated once a long time agoJune 14, 2014 at 10:28 am #154452
Actually Martin Sheen is an Emmy winner. He won Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for “Murphy Brown”.June 16, 2014 at 12:36 am #154453
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.June 16, 2014 at 3:48 am #154454
