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.

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.
