It’s still 2 months to go before The 91st Academy Awards ceremony, but movie critics have already created their lists of nominees. Of course, all Hollywood stars dream of winning an Oscar. There are those “lucky” actors who get nominated almost every year but someone else always ends up being the winner. We decided to find out why life and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are so unfair to them.
We at Bright Side decided to find the answer to this question. We believe that there are a few valid reasons why some actors haven’t win an Oscar yet. Below, you can find some of our observations and assumptions.
For example, some actors are still Oscar-less because they stay within a certain line of roles, some prefer to stay away from events that could give them points, like at the ceremony following the event, and some just aren’t lucky enough.
We put together 17 talented actors and actresses who have been nominated for an Oscar at least once, but haven’t won this award yet.
1. Amy Adams
Amy Adams has been nominated for an Oscar 5 times for movies like Doubt, The Master, and American Hustle. In 2016, she was excellent in her part as Louise Banks in the sci-fi flick Arrival. And she wasn’t even nominated for an Oscar for this part, which made her fans furious.
Perhaps the reason why Adams still hasn’t won this trophy is because she started her career in Hollywood rather late, she was already 25 years old at the time she began in the industry. By this age, many stars have been nominated for an Oscar a few times since it’s pretty normal to start an acting career at an early age. But Adams still has a lot of time ahead of her.
