    Personally, I think Gyllenhaal makes it too obvious how much he wants the recognition, and that’s like a red flag to a bull for voters. He’s an outstanding actor, but the desperation to be part of the awards circus is palpable. It makes it easier to resist a young guy who really wants it.

    But Leo was like super thirsty for that Oscar too, he was trying hard for it and many times, and he was also a screen heartthrob at one point (Titanic), he just finally checked all the boxes with The Revenant.

    Leo was super-thirsty. But unlike Jake, Leo hooked up with the most respected director in the game, and as a result, became much harder to ignore. Do not get it twisted. Dicaprio enlisting Martin Scorsese to become his muse was the game changer in his career. I can easily see an alternative reality where Dicaprio is basically just like Jake. Working hard, giving strong performances. With good or even great directors. But not having a partnership with someone like Scorsese. And just being repeatedly ignored. If Gyllenaal had become Scorsese’s regular muse, he’d be on at least 4-5 nominations, because of the associated respect an actor gets for being Scorsese’s “main guy”.

    Then it’s not Gyllenhaal’s  thirst and desire for recognition per se that is an issue here and a put off for voters, but him being thirsty while working with wrong people. He simply needs to hook up with right directors/producers/etc. and he’ll finally get nominations.

    Not everyone is nominated for everything excellent that they do.

    This.
