    Sigourney Weaver
    Annette Bening
    Laura Linney
    Glenn Close

    ACTOR (no noms)
    Steve Martin
    Jim Carrey
    Joseph Gordon-Levitt
    Errol Flynn

    I would add Kimberly Elise to the list of actresses to never be nominated. She should have been nominated for For Colored Girls in 2010, and should have been nominated in 1998 for Beloved.

    This is a good thread to remember people that effing Jennifer Lawrence does not need desperately her Oscar this year. She has a lifetime a ahead of her.

    Barbara Stanwyck and Rosalind Russell aren’t listed here.

    Obviously Peter O’Toole (Lawrence of Arabia alone surpasses the entire careers of many Oscar winners…this is just an incredible achievement. Then there’s Lion in Winter and even Last Emperor which he could’ve been nominated for.), Julianne Moore (though hard to find that dynamite lead role she had momentum for and should’ve won for…better to applaud her consistency and range), Glenn Close (obvi), Sigourney Weaver (if she had won for Aliens that would’ve been something). Some others: Tom Wilkinson, Pete Postlethwaite, Willem DeFoe, Ed Harris, Harrison Ford (Witness, his only nom is a very good performance).

    I’d also point out there are some lead actors who were only nominated once for lesser roles in supporting who turned in some great performances over many years….Sean Connery for instance for any of his strong lead performances, though he’s a winner. I’d point out Man Who Would Be King, The Offence, The Hill, The Name of the Rose, and The Russia House. There are also some foreign actors of outstanding caliber who never received recognition.

    Winona Ryder. So good in her prime, when she was a teen icon. I hope she is as good in her comeback…

    In a world where the likes of Glenn Close, Angela Lansbury, and Judy Garland are Oscar-less, and Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Hudson are not…

    You have to wonder the validity of the whole thing.

    Among American actors of recent generations, Harry Dean Stanton ranks for me just a little below Gene Hackman and a couple others for most consistently excellent.

    He has never received a significant nomination anywhere for individual performance. He’s 86, still working (he has a small role in The Last Stand opening today).

    The man’s a legend. He deserves an honorary Oscar, an honorary Emmy, a SAG lifetime achievement award.
