    In tradition with all the recent favorite of each decade posts going on, I thought I’d spice it up a little with this challenge: name your favorite Best Actor and Best Actress nominees of each decade from the 1930s to the 2010s who came close to Oscar glory, but ultimately didn’t win. Each person must have been nominated for an Oscar who ultimately lost on Oscar night.

    1930s:
    James Stewart—Mr. Smith Goes To Washington
    I haven’t seen enough of the Best Actress nominees of this decade to definitively decide for them.

    1940s:
    Orson Welles—Citizen Kane
    Katharine Hepburn—The Philadelphia Story

    1950s:
    Marlon Brando—A Streetcar Named Desire
    Bette Davis—All About Eve

    1960s:
    Dustin Hoffman—The Graduate
    Anne Bancroft—The Graduate

    1970s:
    Robert De Niro—Taxi Driver
    Ellen Burstyn—The Exorcist

    1980s:
    Tom Cruise—Born On The Fourth Of July
    Whoopi Goldberg—The Color Purple

    1990s:
    Liam Neeson—Schindler’s List
    Kate Winslet—Titanic

    2000s:
    Russell Crowe—A Beautiful Mind
    Gabourey Sidibe—Precious

    2010s:
    Chiwetel Ejiofor—12 Years A Slave
    Viola Davis—The Help
