    It’s impossible to make a complete list of people who deserve Oscar nods but haven’t had their moment yet. So, I’ll narrow it down to this list.

    The following people have (1) never been nominated; (2) appeared on at least one of WatchMojo’s “underrated” lists; and (3) appeared in at least one film that was released in the 2010s and was nominated in at least one of the major categories.

    Feel free to add honorable mentions if you’d like. 🙂

    Paul Bettany
    Emily Blunt
    Alison Brie
    Carrie Coon
    Colin Farrell
    Isla Fisher
    Ben Foster
    Bruce Greenwood
    Rebecca Hall
    Armie Hammer
    Jeremy Irvine
    Kate Mara
    Lee Pace
    Randall Park
    Sarah Paulson
    Evan Rachel Wood
    Giovanni Ribisi
    Peter Sarsgaard
    Andy Serkis
    LaKeith Stanfield
    Justin Theroux
    Mia Wasikowska
    Michael K. Williams
    Robin Wright

    Rooting for the damn talented Ashton Sanders. Jharrel Jerome just won an Emmy and Mahershala has 2 Oscars. I just know the universe sees it for the Moonlight actors and it’s just a matter of time until Ashton gets his things

    Bettany, Blunt, Hammer, Irvine, Mara, Pace, Serkis, Stanfield.

    And, um. Tom Hiddleston.

    Steven Yeun. He’s constantly doing stellar work in critically raved small movies and it’s just a matter of time when he’ll be cast in some prestigeous mainstream movie that will seal the deal.

    Emily Blunt for sure. She’s this close.

    Emily Blunt seems to have come close quite a few times, so maybe she’ll finally make the cut.

    It’s oddly fascinating because apart of The Young Victoria, every other time she was close is a type film that the Oscars wouldn’t normally touch with a ten foot pole

    • Devil Wears Prada — Studio comedy released in summer
    • The Girl on the Train – A critically reviewed action thriller
    • Mary Poppins Returns — Remake of a Disney musical
    • A Quiet Place — A studio horror film released in April

    I second this, even in trash like Native Son, Captive State & All Day All Night he’s excellent in them and stops the films from completely sinking under.

    I would love for Thandie Newton to finally get a great role I thought she was the best thing about Crash.

    She’s in the new Lisa Joy film this year with Hugh Jackman!
