With about half a century in the biz, Donald Sutherland is an iconic and legendary actor. The veteran star has been in countless films, many of them critical successes.
He’s gotten many Golden Globes, but oddly, throughout his extremely long career, not one Oscar nomination. Baffling, right?
Sigh, Marylin Monroe was another example of a Hollywood gem who was never fully appreciated during her time. Sure, these days the actress is praised for her perfect comedic timing, fine acting, and her love of her literature, but showbiz did not give her her due.
Perhaps the Academy could somewhat redeem themselves by honoring her with a posthumous recognition, but alas, we have yet to see that.
Charlie Chaplin captivated some of the world's earliest audiences of cinema, evolving from heartfelt silent films to legendary talkies. It's no doubt, the man was a genius. But it's safe to say that he did not get enough credit. In fact, he was only nominated for "The Great Dictator."
In Hollywood's defense, they did give him two honorary awards, but it was for the musical score of the film. It's something, but we believe Chaplin deserves more.
Jessica Chastain has so far been nominated twice, one for Best Actress in "Zero Dark Thirty" and again for Best Supporting Actress in "The Help" but lost to Jennifer Lawrence for "Silver Linings Playbook."
A respectable loss! Perhaps there is an Oscar in sight from her role in"Scenes From a Marriage"? And no, we don't mean Oscar Isaac.
She's the daughter of Oscar-winning actress Ingrid Bergman and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Roberto Rosselini, but those genes only took her so far.
While Isabella Rosellini is a fantastic actress, she somehow hasn't been able to score an Oscar nomination, let alone an award. Perhaps she's more popular in European circles.
