Which Actor/Actress who hasn’t been nominated before will win an Oscar?
Who do you feel has the chops to eventually hold the coveted trophy? I’m looking for actors/actresses who will win one down the road, not necessarily in the current movie year. It could be someone who is very young or someone who is due for a nomination/win. It could be 2, 5, even 10 years down the line.
You can also list people who you think will be nominated for an Oscar as well.
- Name up to 5 per post and/or short period of time. This is to avoid naming anyone and everyone.
- You can’t name someone who just received acclamation for a role he/she just played in during Oscar season (November – December). We want to hear new names or people who were never considered.
- Try and avoid actors/actresses who were announced to star in super Oscar-bait movies during the current year. This is a not a strict rule but you are not going out on a limp by naming someone starring in an upcoming Spielberg, Scorsese, Eastwood, etc. movie.
- You can name someone already mentioned before ^^.
I have 2 names that just popped in my head when creating the topic:
1. Shia LaBeouf – 2019 was a year I really appreciated this man’s work. “Peanut Butter Falcon” and “Honey Boy” really showed me he can one day win acclaim in a similar role.
2. Anya Taylor Joy- I just saw Emma and was really fascinated by her range. She has also starred in scary movies: “The Witch”; thrillers in “Split”/”Glass”, and an upcoming superhero film: “New Mutants.”February 23, 2020 at 9:28 pm #1203358149
Adam Sandler but with how Jlo was snubbed I don’t really see him ever being nominated but it would be nice to see. If Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey have oscars why can’t heFebruary 23, 2020 at 9:45 pm #1203358155
1. James McAvoy. This guy is super talented. Loved him in Atonement. Loved him in Split. Loved him in Days of Future Past. His time will come. Hopefully not when he’s playing a supporting role at an old age.
2. Adina Porter. To be fair, most of the roles I saw her in was a tough no-nonsense type. But I think with the right role at the right time, she’ll make it in.
3. Kirsten Dunst. Why isn’t she nominated for anything yet? Did her time come and pass? I refuse to believe it.
4. Jim Carrey. I hated most of his outright comedies before but seeing it again in Sonic the Hedgehog made me realize that he has better control of it now. It was funny but not too much. PLEASE nominate him for a comedic role. Let these actors shine where they truly shine please.
5. Michael Peña. This is a hill I will die on. Lately, he’s been taking nonsense roles that do nothing for his talents, but he is the highlight of Crash and I believe he has what it takes to win it all.
I just love movies. And awards.February 23, 2020 at 11:54 pm #1203358173

JLo is a hobby actress (unless coming this close to nomination changes her mind and she becomes dedicated now and dumps reality show judging or whatever else she’s doing that doesn’t impress the voters). A strike against Sandler was, as per not-very-reliable secret ballot insiders, his other movies that didn’t scream ‘serious Oscar contender’. if he restrained himself from easy money commercial fare for a couple of years, he could pull a Maconaissance of his own with the right movie.
Short version: he’s my pick to win.February 24, 2020 at 6:06 am #1203358379
I’m gonna list actors who haven’t already been mentioned by previous users.
1. Jodie Comer. Once she’s done with Killing Eve, she’s probably gonna have an Oscar within the next 5-10 years. She, along with Florence Pugh, are once-in-a-generation type of talents who have all the stars aligned for them to not just win one Oscar, but perhaps two or more.
2. Song Kang-Ho. After the success of Parasite, an Oscar nomination at least is inevitable for him. He just needs the right role. And it doesn’t have to be in English, because non-English performances have won Oscars several times before.
3. Robert Pattinson. You need a special kind of talent to pull off something like what he did in The Lighthouse. He’ll get one eventually.
4. Zoe Kravitz. She was one of the five leads in Big Little Lies. Do I need to explain more? Dern, Kidman, and Witherspoon are already Oscar-winners. Woodley hasn’t been nominated yet, but has already been mentioned by another user. So I’ll list Kravitz.
5. Isla Fisher. LLLHawks is dying on a hill for Michael Pena; I’ll do the same for Isla Fisher. I find her to be in some ways a female equivalent to Adam Sandler. Mostly known for comedic work, but also more than capable of giving intense performances in dramatic productions (see Home and Away; Definitely, Maybe; and Nocturnal Animals). Ironically, she was actually the original choice for Idina Menzel’s role for Uncut Gems, but for some reason it didn’t work out. If she does get a nomination/win, I can see it for one of two types of performances: (1) An ultra-dramatic performance where she goes completely against type; or (2) A supporting role [perhaps in a coming-of-age drama] where she serves as a mentor/mother figure to the main protagonist.February 24, 2020 at 6:34 am #1203358396
JLo is a hobby actress (unless coming this close to nomination changes her mind and she becomes dedicated now and dumps reality show judging or whatever else she’s doing that doesn’t impress the voters).
She’s not any more of hobby actress than Cher, Jamie Foxx, JHud, Jared Leto, MJB, Gaga & Hailee Steinfeld.
Difference is between Lopez and those multi-hyphens is that JLo was already an actress before becoming a pop star and already had Oscar buzz before (Selena, Out of Sight), was one of the top box office draws for early decade and even to this day is still an marquee name above the title movie star that still draws audiences (Boy Next Door, Second Act).
It’s not like she even permanently quit acting this decade (hello, Shades of Blue). Even in her prior peak in the 2000s she was still going after Oscar with An Unfinished Life (one of the spectacular fails of that awkward period between Miramax’s fallout & TWC formation) and El Cantante, for which the then president of AMPAS said after watching it she was robbed of a win.
Having multi-jobs outside of acting never stopped Gaga last year and didn’t stop Jennifer Hudson this past year (Cats, yes she was a legitimate year in-advanced prediction even until the summer when the first trailer dropped) nor will it not her this year for Respect.
Terry Moore’s honest ballot really made of think that with it were any other actress who gave the exact same performance as Ramona Vega in Hustlers with a similar panned film history (off the top of my head, Kate Beckinsale & Rosario Dawson) then it would’ve been taken more seriously in the vein of a McConassience/Bullock etc.February 24, 2020 at 7:04 am #1203358429
I think there’s a huge difference between Gaga and JLo, namely, the little thing called being in a movie considered a frontrunner for a long time that nabbed buckeload of other nominations. Jlo was the sole nominee for her movie that many dismissed as a “stipper movie” (there were reports that it didn’t play well at all with members living abroad) so she always faced an uphill battle. But I see your point.
