Never Nominated For An Oscar...
There are actors (like Peter O'Toole and Glenn Close) who've gotten nominated a whole lot of times and never won. Yet.
But how about the ones who've never even been nominated? In the case of the dead ones, I'm pretty sure they never will be! Now that's gotta hurt.
Here are some of the top omissions in Oscar's history thus far, IMHO:
Shirley Temple (She got a special Juvenile Award, but that's it)
The Carradines, the Marx brothers, Joan and Constance Bennett
Edward G. Robinson
Buster Keaton (only got an Honorary Award in 1960)
Danny Kaye (only special honors)
Bert Lahr, Ray Bolger, Margaret Hamilton, Margaret O'Brien, Red Skelton
Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Ruby Keeler, Carmen Miranda, Van Johnson
Anyone else? And don't say Jackie Chan or Jim Varney.
