    That doesn’t count. Although funny you mention that. Guess who presented her with that Honorary Oscar?

    I know. Glenn mentioned that in some interview.

    I know this is for acting only but Bradley Cooper is also 0/7 thanks to his producing and writing nominations.

    Anyway, I think when all is said and done both Close and Adams will become Oscar winners. Close in Lead, Adams in Supporting.

    I think O’Toole was not really liked by the Academy. He could very well have won for his first nomination for Lawrence of Arabia, which is one of the great performances of all time, but he was still young, and there was no shame in losing to Gregory Peck for To Kill A Mockingbird. After that, he suffered vote splitting with Richard Burton for Becket. I would probably have voted for him for The Lion in Winter over Cliff Robertson for Charly. But, I think his attitude and drinking problems could have rubbed some the wrong way. As for Deborah Kerr, she probably lost because other actresses got the votes over hers in competition each time. I wouldn’t say any of her performances were standouts, so that it could be said she was robbed that particular year. Also, could there have been a bias because she was British and most of the Academy are American?

    I actually believe Kerr may have been too disliked by too many in the industry to ever have a chance of winning. I know for a fact that when she first came to Hollywood, she was touted as being the next Greer Garson. However, what I think happened is that over the years that goodwill slowly evaporated due her personal behavior. She was seen by some, perhaps even many, as not being a team player. She had a tendency to make controversial public statements about the Hollywood community, and revealed the existence of Marni Nixon to the public against the wishes of  20th Century Fox, the producers of The King and I. In addition, she allegedly had affairs with many of her male co-stars, notably Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster. By the early 1960s, the Academy was so fed up that it stopped even nominating her, snubbing her for films such as The InnocentsThe Night of the Iguana, and The Chalk Garden.

    They should have got Deborah Kerr out of the way in 1947 by nominating and awarding her for her great performance in Black Narcissus, then it wouldn’t have even mattered when she lost after that. I haven’t seen any of the 1947 nominees but the consensus seems to be that the category wasn’t that strong. Rosalind Russell was the heavy favourite but lost to Loretta Young in a huge upset.

    I forgot Arthur Kennedy – he ought to have own for his wily lawyer in Trial (1955).
