They Don’t Have One ??

Happy Oscar Eve everyone ! As I can imagine you’re all talking about who will win, who should win and who doesn’t even deserve red carpet space. Well being the useless knowledge junkie that I am, I thought it would be interesting to browse some past nominee lists and was amazed by some of the people that DON’T have a little Golden guy. So here’s a few ”what the hell ??” moments.

Kate Winslet- 5 nominations
Sense And Sensibility (1995), Titanic (1997), Iris (2001), Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004), Little Children (2006) ***6th Nomination for The Reader (2008)***

Peter Sellers- 2 nominations.
Dr. Strangelove (1964), Being There (1979)

Julianne Moore- 4 nominations.
Boogie Nights (1997), The End Of The Affair (1999) Far From Heaven and The Hours (2002)

Leonardo DiCaprio -3 nominations.
What’s Eating Gilbert Grape ? (1993), The Aviator (2004), Blood Diamond (2006)

Debra Winger- 3 nominations.
An Officer And A Gentleman (1982), Terms Of Endearment (1983), Shadowlands (1993)

Julie Walters- 2 nominations.
Educating Rita (1983), Billy Elliot (2000)

Bill Murray- 1 nomination.
Lost In Translation (2003)

Bette Midler- 2 nominations.
The Rose (1979), For The Boys (1991)

And, in my opinion, the biggest injustice:
Brenda Blethyn- 2 nominations.
Secrets And Lies (1996), Little Voice (1998)

Who do you think should have an Oscar but doesn’t ? Let us know !!

    The younger ones still have a chance, so you gotta look at the older ones.. Clint has never won one for acting which is crazy ! And how the hell did he not get nominated for Gran Torino ?? Apart from that, Delroy Lindo has never even been nominated !?! And… Harvey Keitel?? One poxy nomination for Bugsy ! I mean this guy is more than an actor, he’s a whole planet !!…But for me, the biggest in justice of all has to be 2 words – Spike Lee !
