    I know this has been discussed before, but we are working on a new photo gallery. Please provide your insight in this thread.

    Who are living actors and actresses who have surprisingly never received Oscar nominations?

    Here are the rules for what we want…

    Living actors and actresses (active performers would be even better).

    Working in films since before 2000 (looking for at least a little bit of longevity).

    Point out at least one or two performances that should have been nominated. Give specifics of their roles, film years, categories, etc.

    If we had done this gallery four years ago, a great example would have been Christopher Plummer.

    Meg Ryan – Best Actress for When Harry Met Sally 1989, a really charismatic and hilarious performance creating a now iconic character. I haven’t seen When A Man Loves a Woman but supposedly she was great in it. And In the Land of Women was a god awful movie but she was incredible in it, althought I can’t blame anyone for letting the film’s quality drag her down. 

    Jim Carrey – Best Actor for The Truman Show 1998. Best Actor for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind 2004. And I haven’t seen Man on the Moon but from what I hear he was probably deserving then too

    Here are a few of my choices:

    Jim Carrey (‘The Truman Show’, ‘Man on the Moon’, ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’) 
    Gael Garcia Bernal (‘Bad Education’, ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’, ‘Y Tu Mamá También’, ‘Amores Perros’)
    Andrew Garfield (I know he’s way young still, but he’s already given several Oscar-worthy perfs in my opinion- ‘Boy A’, ‘Never Let Me Go’, ‘The Social Network’)
    Michael Fassbender (‘Shame’, ‘Hunger’, ‘Fish Tank’, ‘Jane Eyre’, ‘A Dangerous Method’, ‘Prometheus’)
    Peter Sarsgaard (‘Garden State’, ‘Shattered Glass’, ‘Kinsey’, ‘Jarhead’, ‘An Education’, ‘Boy’s Don’t Cry’)
     
    Cameron Diaz (‘Being John Malkovich’, ‘Vanilla Sky’, ‘In Her Shoes’, ‘There’s Something About Mary’)
    Dakota Fanning (yes, she’s crazy young, but it’s kinda wrong to me that other great child actresses like Breslin, Ronan, and Steinfeld have nominations, but not her- ‘I Am Sam’, ‘Hounddog’, ‘The Secret Life of Bees’, ‘The Runaways’, ‘Man on Fire’)
    Jennifer Jason Leigh (‘Margot At The Wedding’, ‘Georgia’, ‘Delores Claiborne’, ‘Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle’)
    Robin Wright (‘Forrest Gump’, ‘Nine Lives’, ‘She’s So Lovely’)
    Isabelle Huppert (‘The Piano Teacher’, ‘La Ceremonie’, ‘Amour’)

    Edward G Robinson, Peter Lorre, Jeanne Moreau, Gene Kelly, Bibi Andersson (her performance in Persona, maybe the greatest in the history of film, deserved to win in 1967)

    (Robert Mitchum had an early supporting actor nomination)
