An Oscar is the ultimate definition of success and excellence for any actor.
The 94th Oscars ceremony aired on March 27, a particularly big night for actress Jessica Chastain for her role in The Eyes of Tammy Faye and actor Will Smith for his role in King Richard. Both stars have become leading A-listers in Hollywood but have yet to be recognized by the Academy, until now.
It’s not uncommon however, for well known celebrities to rack up numerous wins or none at all, regardless of how many blockbuster films they’ve appeared in.
Stars like Cary Grant, Judy Garland, Lauren Bacall and Kirk Douglas have starred in some of your favorite films yet have never taken home the golden statue.
Check out a list of living actors/actresses that have appeared in more than 60 films and have yet to win an Oscar.
