2014 Oscar Actors With Multiple Nominations And No Wins
These 10 actors, appearing in this year’s films nominated for Best Picture, have received multiple Academy Award nominations, yet have failed to win Oscar gold. Can Amy Adams or Leonardo DiCaprio end their long losing streak Sunday night?
1. Amy Adams
5 nominationsJunebug, Doubt, The Fighter, The Master, American Hustle (pending)
Unfortunately it looks like this will not be the year to end the drought. The Best Actress field is the strongest it has been in years, and Cate Blanchett looks unstoppable.
2. Leonardo DiCpario
4 NominationsWhat’s Eating Gilbert Grape, The Aviator, Blood Diamond, The Wolf of Wall Street (pending)
Out of all of the actors on this list, DiCaprio has the greatest chance of winning. But can he overtake the front-runner McConaughey?
3. Ed Harris
4 NominationsApollo 13, The Truman Show, Pollock, The Hours
4. Joaquin Phoenix
3 NominationsGladiator, Walk the Line, The Master
Some were shocked by his absence on this year’s ballot for his strong acting in Her. Regardless, he has three other performances that garnered praise and yet failed to translate into a win.
5. Brad Pitt
3 Nominations12 Monkeys, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Moneyball
6. Bradley Cooper
2 NominationsSilver Linings Playbook, American Hustle (pending)
With back-to-back acting nominations under the direction of David O. Russell, it looks like Cooper has found the formula for an Oscar nomination. But again, it appears that Cooper will leave empty handed.
7. Bruce Dern
2 NominationsComing Home, Nebraska (pending)
His chances are slim, but maybe he will finally receive recognition after a long Hollywood career.
8. Jonah Hill
2 NominationsMoneyball, The Wolf of Wall Street (pending)
9. Catherine Keener
2 NominationsBeing John Malkovich, Capote
10. Jeremy Renner
2 NominationsThe Hurt Locker, The Town
And to all of the above actors who are nominated on Sunday
