    Actors without any major awards from NY Film Critics, LA film Critics, NAtional society of film critics and National Board of Review (I know they are not film critics but it is a major award). Other critics awards are more or less joke and it is always funny when come Oscar time many here count them as equal even though any of these four is worth more than other combined (Boston and Chicago are also respected though).

    I will start with Nicole Kidman. She never won any of these. I personally find Kidman overrated but it is weird considernig her acclaim at least on forums like these she never actually won. Natalie Portman also.
    I almost said Tilda Swinton, but she won National Board for Kevin.
    What are some other actors you found weird never won big with critics.

    I don’t count National Board of Review as they are a joke – they aren’t even film critics.

    Also please note that the list only includes Oscar winners since 1975 when the LA film critics first started. Unfair to include Oscar winners prior to that year or Oscar winners that have passed away since.

    This is a list of living Oscar winners who have never won one of the big three:

    Kim Basinger
    Roberto Benigni
    Halle Berry
    Juliette Binoche
    Cher
    Jennifer Connelly
    Sean Connery
    Geena Davis
    Viola Davis
    Jean Dujardin
    Faye Dunaway
    Louise Fletcher
    Whoopi Goldberg
    Cuba Gooding Jr.
    Louis Gossett Jr.
    Anne Hathaway
    Allison Janney
    Angelia Jolie
    Nicole Kidman
    Kevin Kline
    Brie Larson
    Remi Malek
    Gary Oldman
    Eddie Redmayne
    Tim Robbins
    Sam Rockwell
    Maggie Smith
    Octavia Spencer
    Tilda Swinton
    Marisa Tomei
    Renee Zellweger
    Catherine Zeta-Jones

    Thanks for the pickup.

    I’ll remove Douglas & Paquin from the list.

    Must say that the biggest surprise of all is that Maggie Smith has never won anything from the big three.

    Thanks for the catch.

    A couple of interesting little pieces of trivia. Frances McDormand won Oscars for Fargo & Three Billboards, didn’t any major critics awards for them but did for Almost Famous. Same with Julianne Moore – wins from critics with Boogie Nights & Far From Heave, Oscar for Still Alice.

    Why is the NBR considered a joke? Who belongs to it? They do pick some interesting winners sometimes that go on to Oscar while none of the other groups pick them. (Halle Berry and Juliette Binoche come to mind.)
