    I believe that any actor of any genre can get an Oscar nomination if the planets align correctly. Namely a good script, good director and if it’s a weak enough category/year. I mean Jonah Hill is nominated twice and Matthew McConaughey is (most likely) going to win his first. But is there an actor currently living who will not ever get nominated (or is likely to not ever even get in contention).

    I feel like Jim Carrey had a few good shots to get a nomination (The Truman Show, Man on the Moon, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) but he was passed over every time. It’s unlikely he’ll get in with anything else if he didn’t get in for those.

    Megan Fox. The girl can not act to save her life.

    10 years ago, Lindsay Lohan seemed like one of those actresses that, with the right role, could get an Oscar nomination. Now, I firmly believe that she is never going to get nominated.

    Honestly this is really hard because people are proving you really NEVER KNOW. I mean some people may have predicted it, but I am positive that there were not many people that only a few years ago would have expected Bradley Cooper, Jonah Hill, and Matthew McConaughey to have oscar nominations. Same with character actors like Octavia Spencer, and June Squibb if anyone had even heard of her. And I can tell you having watched Secret Life of the American Teenager, i NEVER would have though Shailene Woodley would get as close to a nomination as she did, and she’s someone people are now predicting to win one day.

    I keep trying to think of actors that, but even people like Jennifer Aniston, Katherin Heigl, maybe even Megan Fox or Dwayne Johnson, I can see possible scenarios where they go indie and against type and get a surprise nom. If I had to pick someone I guess I might go with Jim Carrey, because he got so close so many times and they just never went for him, so he’s probably given up trying

    I agree that these actors will probably never get nominated, but not necessarily because they’re “bad” (debatable, anyway). Being a “good” actor is not always necessary to get an Oscar nomination and/or win, as we have seen…

    Jim Carrey, despite being worthy of four career nominations so far, will probably never get one.

    Rachel McAdams, despite having incredible potential, will never get one if she keeps doing stupid melodramatic romance movies.
