Select one of the nine above you feel is the most deserving of that coveted golden naked man award (AKA: the Oscar)
I vetoed Peter O’Toole from the list because he’s retired, and, sadly, has probably missed the nomination boat.
(UPDATE: Changed Ed Harris for Julianne Moore. As much I’d like to see Harris, I do agree that Moore is “moore deserving” (pun implied).October 20, 2013 at 12:34 am #545961
Julianne Moore is more overdue than some of the people listed above 😉 but I’m gonna go with Glenn Close.October 20, 2013 at 1:14 am #545962
I voted for Deakins, who’s been snubbed so many times for terrific work.
And there’s Emmanuel Lubezki, who’s probably winning this time around. I can’t believe he lost for The Tree of Life and Children of Men.
Of the actors I’d say Julianne Moore is way more overdue than Glenn Close.
And come on, Leo DiCaprio could be a decent actor, but he certainly isn’t overdue for an Oscar win. Gary Oldman is overdue and he has only one nomination. Ian McKellen is overdue and he’s been snubbed for a great performance (Gods and Monsters) and he’s delivered multiple acclaimed performances (from Richard III to The Lord of the Rings). Steve Buscemi is overdue. How he was ignored for Ghost World is puzzling. Even actors who aren’t as active anymore – Fiennes, Norton – should be ahead of DiCaprio. And don’t get me started on O’Toole. Leo isn’t anywhere close.October 20, 2013 at 5:04 am #545963
Agree with Zooey, and I’d also say that Paul Thomas Anderson is probably due for an Oscar moreso than some listed.
With his 10 nominations, Deakins got my vote. He would have been my pick to win for The Shawshank Redemption, Fargo, and Skyfall, and he was a respectable runner-up for True Grit and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.October 20, 2013 at 8:39 am #545964
Kevin O’Connell has 20 nominations and no victories. That’s more than the four actors combined. Look him up on imdb, and see the films he’s worked on, which include at least 4 films a year (And 8 films this year), and goes back to the Empire Strikes Back. He is the definition of overdue.
FYC: Kevin O’Connell, 47 Ronin (Or Any of the other 7 films this year)October 20, 2013 at 11:04 am #545966
Julianne Moore among the actors. Close is also quite due. There are different actors WAY more due than Leo and Amy.
Not a huge fan of Leigh. I would agree PTA, Tarantino (for a director win), Fincher and Ridley Scott are more due. Lars von Trier is due for at least a nod.
Kevin O’Connell and Roger Deakins are the embodiment of the term “overdue.”October 20, 2013 at 2:06 pm #545967
……… 5 way tie

Why people keep saying that Dicaprio is overdue for an Oscar? He was pretty much nominated every time he deserved, expect for “Django Unchained” and, also, he never should have won, so i really dont undestand that. Better actor, Johnny Depp is not mentiond in conversation, and Leo is. I like him as an actor but i never understood all this discusions about him.January 4, 2014 at 2:35 pm #545969
Paul Thomas Anderson for SureJanuary 4, 2014 at 6:10 pm #545970
Amy and leo both should won for there first nods they best that year but new comers and lost thought never be back there.January 4, 2014 at 9:00 pm #545971

I think Depp’s career has gone south in the last few years. I think he probably will win an Oscar but he’s got to get back on track.January 6, 2014 at 8:28 pm #545972
Deakins is the most talented person in this line-up, he should have won a few times already.January 6, 2014 at 8:41 pm #545973
No Donald Sutherland, no vote!!!!January 7, 2014 at 11:44 am #545974
I don’t really believe in the concept of being “overdue” for any award, because no one is ever really “due” an award in the first place. That said, of these people who don’t have an Oscar, I think Roger Deakins has the most outstanding body of work.
