The 24 actors who have gotten the most Oscar nominations without winning one

Glenn close the wife
Glenn Close in “The Wife.”

  • The Oscars have repeatedly nominated and neglected numerous actors.
  • Glenn Close lost for the eighth time on Sunday after being nominated for her role in “Hillbilly Elegy.”
  • Here are 24 actors, including Close, who have been nominated at least four times without winning.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Each year, deserving performances lose out in the Oscars’ best acting categories. But there are a handful of great actors that the Academy has repeatedly nominated and neglected.

This year, Glenn Close was nominated for the eighth time for her supporting role in Netflix’s “Hillbilly Elegy.” She lost again during the Oscars ceremony on Sunday to “Minari” star Yuh-Jung Youn, tying with Peter O’Toole as the actor with the most Oscar nominations without a win (though O’Toole won an honorary Oscar).

Close was also nominated two years ago in the lead actress category for “The Wife” and was the perceived frontrunner – until she lost to Olivia Colman.

Joaquin Phoenix and Brad Pitt turned their luck around last year. They both scored their first acting wins on their fourth nomination, Phoenix for lead actor for “Joker” and Pitt for supporting actor for “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.”

Others haven’t been so lucky.

Product Card (small)(streaming purchase) (small)

One of the top winners at the 2021 Academy Awards was “Nomadland.” If you haven’t seen the film yet, Hulu is here to help. “Nomadland” premiered in theaters and on Hulu simultaneously on February 19. The movie is also available to buy through video-on-demand services like Prime Video.

The film is based on the book “Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century.” The story centers on a woman, Fern (Frances McDormand), who loses her job due to the recession. As she searches for work on the road in her van, Fern hears stories from other nomads in the American West. The film features supporting actors who are nomads in real life, including Bob Wells, known for his YouTube channel CheapRVliving.

“Nomadland” is directed by Chloé Zhao, who won best director at the 2021 Academy Awards. Zhao’s win made her the first woman of color and second woman ever to win the Oscar for best directing. Her next film will be Marvel’s superhero movie “Eternals” starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, and Kumail Nanjiani.

Aside from Zhao’s win, the film also took home the 2021 Oscar for best picture, and McDormand won best actress for her role as Fern. “Nomadland” has a “94% Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Insider critic Jacob Sarkisian gave the movie an “A-” grade in his full review.

How to watch ‘Nomadland’ on Hulu

“Nomadland” is now available to stream on Hulu. The movie premiered on February 19. You can get access to Hulu for $6 a month with its basic, ad-supported plan.

Aside from the monthly payment option, you can buy an entire year of Hulu for $60. That’s $12 cheaper than the cost of paying for a year on a monthly basis. If you’re not a fan of ads, Hulu also has an ad-free option for $12 a month.

You can watch “Nomadland” through Hulu on a number of streaming devices, including iOS and Android products, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Nintendo Switch, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, web browsers, and most smart TVs.

  • The Academy Awards, or the Oscars, honors the best movies of the year.
  • The 2021 Oscars will be broadcast on April 25 at 8 p.m. ET.
  • You can watch the Oscars live on ABC via cable, or streaming services like Hulu + Live TV and Fubo TV.

The 93rd Academy Awards will honor some of the best films from 2020 and early 2021. The ceremony will be broadcast this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET. You can watch the show live on ABC through cable or any streaming service with access to the channel.

This year’s event has already made history with its nominations. “Minari” actor Steven Yeun is the first Asian-American ever nominated for a best actor Oscar. “Nomadland” director Chloé Zhao is the first woman of color to receive an Oscar nomination for best director. Zhao joins “Promising Young Woman” director Emerald Fennell in the category, making this the first year two women are nominated for the award.

The 2021 Academy Awards will be the third Oscars in a row to be conducted without a host. The show will still feature a number of celebrity presenters, however, including Rita Moreno, Zendaya, Brad Pitt, and Bryan Cranston.

Unlike previous awards shows during the pandemic, most nominees will be attending the Oscars in person rather than virtually, but venues will be set up in London and Paris for nominees outside the US.

How to watch the 2021 Oscars

The 2021 Oscars will be held on April 25 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The show is expected to wrap up around 11 p.m. ET. A pre-show will start at 6:30 p.m. ET.

You can watch the Oscars on ABC via cable, satellite, antenna, or any live streaming service with access to the channel. The show will also be streamed via ABC.com and the ABC app. That said, ABC’s site and app both require you to sign in with an authenticated pay-TV provider.

How to watch the Oscars on ABC without cable

To watch the 2021 Oscars without cable, you can use one of several live TV streaming services with access to ABC, including Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, and Fubo TV.

All three services offer plans that start at $65 a month and include ABC in select markets. Hulu’s website, FuboTV’s website, and YouTube’s website all let you check to see what channels are available in your area.

Hulu + Live TV offers a total of around 65 channels, along with access to all of Hulu’s on-demand movies and shows. YouTube TV features around 85 channels, and Fubo TV’s base plan includes around 120 channels.

Another way to stream ABC is with Locast, a non-profit app that offers free local channels in 31 markets. Although the streaming service will let you watch the Oscars for free, you’ll have to register for an account and donate at least $5 a month for uninterrupted viewing. Otherwise, a donation request will interrupt your streams every few minutes.

All 92 Oscar best-picture winners, ranked from worst to best by movie critics

parasite
“Parasite”

  • The 93rd Oscars ceremony is Sunday.
  • 92 movies have won the Oscar for best picture in the history of the Academy Awards.
  • We ranked them all based on how well they fared with critics, including last year’s winner “Parasite.”
  • See more stories on Insider’s business page.

It’s been a turbulent year for the movie business, but the show must go on.

The 93rd Oscars ceremony is Sunday after being pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic. And the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also bent the rules a bit for this year’s Oscars.

Movies that debuted on streaming services qualified as long as they had a planned theatrical release (a movie usually has to have a qualifying theatrical run). And movies released between January 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021 qualified (it’s usually only the calendar year).

The delay meant that last year’s best picture winner, “Parasite,” was the reigning champion for a bit longer. It broke barriers as the first international feature to win the Oscars’ top prize.

This year’s frontrunner is “Nomadland,” directed by Chloé Zhao and starring Frances McDormand. Seven other films are also competing for cinema’s most prestigious award, including Netflix’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and “Mank.”

Business Insider ranked all 92 best picture winners – from the first winner, “Wings,” in 1927 to “Parasite” – based on their critic score on the reviews-aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.

In the case of ties, we broke them based on their audience scores on the site. (And if those were the same, the film with more critic reviews came out on top.)

How to watch ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ – the Oscar nominee is now available to rent though VOD streaming services

judas and the black messiah

  • “Judas and the Black Messiah” premiered in theaters and on HBO Max on February 12.
  • The biopic stars Daniel Kaluuya as Chicago Black Panther Party chair Fred Hampton.
  • The film is now available to rent from VOD streaming services, like Prime Video and Vudu, for $20.

the Black Messiah (small)

“Judas and the Black Messiah,” a film based on the 1969 killing of Chicago Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton, has been nominated for six Academy Awards. The movie is now available to rent through services like Prime Video for $20.

“Judas and the Black Messiah” premiered on February 12 in theaters and on HBO Max, but its availability on HBO’s streaming service was only temporary. The movie was removed from HBO Max on March 14, but it could be added back at a later date.

The film chronicles the events leading to the joint FBI and police raid that saw more than 80 shots fired into Fred Hampton’s apartment as he slept. “Get Out” and “Queen & Slim” star Daniel Kaluuya plays Hampton in the film, while Lakeith Stanfield plays the FBI informant tasked with spying on Hampton and the Black Panthers.

For many Black activists, Hampton’s killing exemplified violent methods that racists and the government would use to suppress their movement, sowing years of distrust for Chicago police and federal law enforcement.

Years after Hampton’s death, it was revealed that the FBI had identified Hampton as a radical and launched a campaign to undermine his activism. They planted an informant named William O’Neal within the Black Panther Party to track Hampton’s actions and spread misinformation about Hampton to other Black activist groups in Chicago.

“Judas and the Black Messiah” has garnered critical acclaim from reviewers. The movie currently holds a “96% Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an 85/100 on Metacritic.

How to watch ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’

“Judas and the Black Messiah” is now available to rent through video-on-demand platforms. The movie premiered on HBO Max on February 12 and remained on the service through March 14. Though it’s no longer available on HBO Max, the film could be added back in the future.

To watch “Judas and the Black Messiah” at home you can rent it through services like Vudu, FandangoNow, Amazon Prime, iTunes, and Google Play. Rentals start at $20 but may vary based on your platform of choice.

the Black Messiah (button)

Most rental services give you a 30-day period to start watching a movie after you order it. Once you begin playback, you typically get 48 hours before the rental expires. “Judas and the Black Messiah” is available in 4K with Dolby Vision, HDR10, and Dolby Atmos via supported services on compatible devices.

If you want to own a physical copy of the movie, the Blu-ray disc is scheduled for release on May 4.

What other Warner Bros. movies are coming to HBO Max?

The latest Warner Bros. movie on HBO Max is the monster mash-up of “Godzilla vs. Kong.” Other upcoming releases include “Mortal Kombat,” “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” and “Matrix 4.”

“Minari” is a drama following a Korean-American family’s move to Arkansas in the 1980s.
