    I don’t know if someone else has already started a thread on this subject, but I thought I’d try.

    If you could give an Oscar nod to any actor/actress who’s never been nominated by the Academy as their very first nomination, who would it be and for what movie? The criteria for this should be acting legends and/or veterans who’ve somehow never received the recognition they’ve deserved from the Academy.

    Emily Blunt – Devil Wears Prada
    Michael Stuhlbarg – Call Me By Your Name

    I love these two mentions, especially Stuhlbarg. One of my favorite scenes in Call Me By Your Name is Mr. Pearlman’s heart wrenching confession to his son.

    I would also add Richard E. Grant for Can You Ever Forgive Me? His final scene with Israel should have been awarded with an Oscar. *This doesn’t meet the requested requirement, since Grant was nominated, but I wish he would have won.*

    Scarlett Johansson-Lost In Translation
    Naomi Watts-Mullholland Drive
    Michael Fassbender-Shame

    As I’ve already mentioned, the criteria for this should be people who’ve somehow never been nominated by the Academy. So Portman, Johansson, Watts, and Fassbender all don’t count as each of them did eventually get nominated (with Portman obviously winning in 2010).

    I’m deliberately bypassing performances in films that wouldn’t have qualified for Oscars around the time they were released.

    Jean Gabin – La Grande Illusion
    Jean-Louis Barrault – Les Enfants du Paradis
    Anton Walbrook – The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp / The Red Shoes
    Kathleen Byron – Black Narcissus
    Dennis Price – Kind Hearts and Coronets
    Jean Marais – Orphée
    Toshiro Mifune – Seven Samurai
    Kim Novak – Vertigo
    Marilyn Monroe – Some Like It Hot
    Harriet Andersson – Through a Glass Darkly / Cries and Whispers
    Jeanne Moreau – Jules et Jim
    Bibi Andersson – Persona
    Mia Farrow – Rosemary’s Baby
    Malcolm McDowell – A Clockwork Orange
    Oliver Reed – The Devils
    John Cazale – The Godfather Part II / Dog Day Afternoon
    Shelley Duvall – 3 Women
    Mieko Harada – Ran
    Chloe Webb – Sid and Nancy
    John Turturro – Barton Fink
    Jane Horrocks – Life Is Sweet / Little Voice
    David Thewlis – Naked
    Virna Lisi – La Reine Margot
    Michael Stuhlbarg – A Serious Man
    Oscar Isaac – Inside Llewyn Davis
    Timothy Spall – Mr. Turner

    Actors who went on to receive (an) Oscar nomination(s) but deserved one beforehand:

    Cary Grant – Bringing Up Baby
    Rosalind Russell – His Girl Friday
    Deborah Kerr – Black Narcissus
    Catherine Deneuve – Repulsion / Belle de Jour
    Robert De Niro – Mean Streets
    Harvey Keitel – Mean Streets
    Klaus Maria Brandauer – Mephisto
    Don Cheadle – Devil in a Blue Dress
    Naomi Watts – Mulholland Dr.
    Olivia Colman – Tyrannosaur

    These just came to mind; there are certainly many others.
