    Willem Dafoe, in that he deserved to win three of his four Oscar nominations (all except Platoon) and missed out on a nom for perhaps his greatest performance yet, as Thomas Wake in The Lighthouse. Ian McKellen (arguably win-worthy for both his nominations), and Ralph Fiennes (surprisingly not recognised since the 90s, deserving of a nod for The Grand Budapest Hotel) are close behind.

    To Live And Die in L.A.
    Platoon
    Mississippi Burning
    The Last Temptation of Christ
    Shadow of The Vampire
    Spiderman
    Antichrist
    The Grand Budapest Hotel
    The Florida Project
    At Eternity’s Gate
    The Lighthouse

    It’s Dafoe, he’s more overdue than Depp or Norton, and it’s not even close.

    Jake Gyllenhaal! The fact that he hasn’t been nominated since Brokeback is a travesty. Should have atleast 5 nominations at this point and 2 wins for Nightcrawler and Prisoners as he gave better performances than Redmayne and Leto respectively.

    Nightcrawler, Brokeback Mountain, Zodiac, Prisoners, Enemy, Stronger, Donnie Darko, End Of Watch, Nocturnal Animals, Jarhead, I can continue.

    Norton. He should have two oscars, for American History X and Primal Fear.

    Then Dafoe.

    1. Willem Dafoe should have won for the Florida Project and last year for the Lighthouse.

    2. Jake Gyllenhaal should have swept for Nightcrawler.

    3. Ralph Fiennes was robbed for Schindler’s List (and so was Liam Neeson).

    I agree that Dafoe is overdue however he did NOT deserve to win over Pitt, Pesci or Pacino. And Rockwell just gives a better performance than him in 3BB too.

    For me this year he was #1. Followed by Pesci, Pacino, Pitt, and Song (and Hopkins). But it was close.

    With Rockwell, it could have gone either way and I am regularly switching between the two but today I was feeling Dafoe.

    Ian McKellen, and it’s not close. Could very well win a Honorary in future years.

    Norton. his 1996-1999 filmography and performances was better than Russell Crowe’s 1999-2002 run even if the Oscars think otherwise.

    I would include David Lynch’s Wild at Heart in this list as well.

    Liam Neeson should’ve won for Schindler’s List.

    Then Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe, Ralph Fiennes, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

    Ralph Fiennes

    Just made the connection why you selected him. She said he was her best on screen kiss.

    Are you guys suggesting that Dafoe is the male equivalent to Glenn Close?
