Every Marvel Cinematic Universe actor who’s been nominated for an Oscar

Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off in February with “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and now continues with “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” which hit theaters May 5. The 32nd film in the MCU, it marks the final entry in James Gunn‘s trilogy and will conclude the arc of our favorite band of misfits as we know them with a plot centered on Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper). With each passing movie and TV show, the MCU only adds to its already insane level of talent and the number of actors who’ve both appeared in the MCU and been nominated for an Oscar at least once in their career increases as well. The “Guardians” franchise has had nine-time nominee Cooper from the start (he had just two nominations when the first “Guardians” was released in 2014) and has featured former nominees like Glenn Close, Djimon Hounsou, Sylvester Stallone and winner Benicio del Toro. The third entry adds yet another Oscar nominee: Maria Bakalova, who was up for Best Supporting Actress for 2020’s “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” and voices Cosmo the Spacedog in the threequel. Here is the list of actors who’ve appeared in the MCU and who also have at least one Oscar nomination to their name in any category. It’s a long list, and it could grow longer any second, as we’ve seen already.
